According to a report, former USC tight end Weslye Saunders has been ruled ineligible for the April NFL draft. The report cited a paperwork snafu by Saunders in his petition to enter the NFL draft after what would have been his junior season.
Saunders was scheduled to attend the NFL scouting combine but his invitation has been rescinded since he is not eligible for the draft.
It has been a rough year for Saunders. He was linked to an NCAA investigation over the summer and was dismissed from the USC football team in September. He did not play in a game this season.
