Palo Alto native and Fresno State redshirt sophomore wide receiver Davante Adams will enter the NFL draft, the Fresno Bee reported.

The 6-foot-2, 216-pound Adams set a school record this season with 131 catches for 1,719 yards. He also had 24 touchdowns in 2013 and two-year career numbers of 233 receptions for 3,030 yards and 38 TDs.

Adams received a third-round evaluation from the NFL Draft Advisory Board.

Also, Cal tight end Richard Rodgers will enter the draft, the Bears football office confirmed. The 6-4, 245-pound junior caught 39 passes for 608 yards this season. He's the son of Richard Rodgers Sr., who was part of The Play in the 1982 Big Game.

According to sources outside the Cal football office, Rodgers has signed with an agent. Cal also said cornerback Kam Jackson, who announced earlier in the week that he intends to enter the draft, has told the staff that is his plan.

Centennial-Corona's Tre Watson, who ran for 3,734 yards and 50 touchdowns this season, was named the Los Angeles Times' Back of the Year. The 5-11, 195-pound running back has orally committed to Cal. Watson also was named first team along with Narbonne-Harbor City offensive lineman Owen Roberts, a San Jose State commit; and Foothill-Tustin linebacker Bobby Okepeke, a Stanford commit.
