Jared Goff To Leave Cal For NFL Draft

Dec 31, 2015 10:56 AM

Jared Goff plans to leave Cal to declare for the 2016 NFL Draft.

Goff, a 6-foot-4, 215-pound junior out of Novato, California, passed for 4,719 yards with 43 touchdowns and 13 interceptions and a completion percentage of 64.5 in 2015. 

ESPN's Todd McShay projects Goff as the second-best quarterback in the 2016 draft class, behind Memphis' Paxton Lynch. Goff is No. 10 on the Big Board of ESPN's Mel Kiper, who cites Goff's "special arm," "good movement" and "anticipation."
