01/08/07 - University of Pittsburgh cornerback Darrelle Revis, regarded as one of the nation's premier players at his position, will bypass his senior season with the Panthers and enter the 2007 NFL draft, several league sources confirmed. Revis, 21, has already submitted the pertinent paperwork to the NFL to petition for entry into the draft. A three-year starter, Revis possesses prototype size (6-feet-0, 200 pounds), plays even faster than his stopwatch speed and has terrific coverage techniques. He is projected by most scouts as no worse than a second-round choice and could be selected in the first round, since cornerback is such a premium position. A native of Aliquippa, Pa., which has produced several NFL players, including cornerback Ty Law, Revis plays a physical style in coverage and is not shy about coming up to support the run. For his career, Revis has 129 tackles, eight interceptions and 32 passes defensed. He has also returned punts on occasion. - Len Pasquarelli ESPN
