UNC's Paige-Moss to enter NFL draft

North Carolina defensive end Donte Paige-Moss has informed the school of his intention to enter the NFL Draft, UNC announced on Monday.

On the surface, at least, this appears to be somewhat of a puzzling move, especially considering that Paige-Moss suffered a torn ACL in the Tar Heels’ 41-24 loss against Missouri in the Independence Bowl.

Paige-Moss had a breakout season as a sophomore in 2010, when he had 49 tackles, seven sacks and 13.5 tackles for loss.

But his production slipped in 2011. He finished his junior season with 29 tackles, 2 sacks and 4 tackles for loss. Paige-Moss hasn’t officially filed his paperwork that will make his entry into the draft official. He has until Jan. 15 to do so.

The Tar Heels were already going to be moving forward without Quinton Coples, whose eligibility has expired. Coples finished his final season with 55 tackles, 15 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks.

it isn't very puzzling to me...he probably hasn't been to class since he came to chapel thrill....and with no Butch there to protect him, he has to leave or get kicked to the curb.

the kid probably doesn't know what a syllabus is.

I get sick of State fans like the idiot above commenting on articles and making up blatant lies all the time. Your inferiority complex as a fan base is well deserved.

Moss made some uncomplimentary tweets last week and was encouraged to leave.
