GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida defensive end Carlos Dunlap and
center Maurkice Pouncey are leaving school early and entering the
NFL draft.

The Gators now have four underclassmen in the draft. Cornerback
Joe Haden and tight end Aaron Hernandez announced their intentions
last week.

Guard Mike Pouncey, however, says he is returning for his senior
season.

Dunlap, who led the Gators with nine sacks last season, is
projected to be a first-round pick despite his drunk-driving arrest
in early December. Florida coach Urban Meyer suspended Dunlap for
the Southeastern Conference championship game, which the Gators
lost.

Maurkice Pouncey, awarded the Rimington Trophy as the nation's
top center in 2009, is projected to be a second-round pick.
