Two of the Oklahoma Sooners' finest, wide receiver Kenny Stills and safety Tony Jefferson, have reportedly decided to wrap up their college football careers and attempt to find success at the next level, declaring for the 2013 NFL draft this coming April, according to ESPN college football reporter Joe Schad via Twitter:

Stills, a 6'1", 190-pound junior, led all Oklahoma receivers this past season, recording 82 receptions for 964 yards and 11 touchdowns. He is one of the top 15 wideouts assumed to be available this spring, according to ESPN draft scouts.

A native of Encinitas, California, Stills caught at least 61 passes in each of his three seasons in Norman, proving to be a reliable target for quarterback Landry Jones. 

Meanwhile, Jefferson, a junior defensive back who played safety for the Sooners, is 5'11" and 210 pounds. He is thought to be the fifth-best safety available this year, according to ESPN draft scouts

Another California native, Jefferson led Oklahoma in tackles in 2012, recording 119 in 13 games. He also tallied 3.5 tackles for a loss and forced two interceptions. 

Both Stills and Jefferson led the Sooners to a 10-3 season in 2012, in which they finished in second place in the Big 12 Conference. Unfortunately, Oklahoma capped off the year with a 41-13 blowout loss to Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl.
