Stanford cornerback Terrence Brown has decided to forego his final year of eligibility at Stanford to enter the NFL draft.
In a statement released by the school Tuesday, Brown thanked Cardinal coach David Shaw and defensive coordinator Derek Mason for the opportunity. He said the ''past four years have been a great experience for me at Stanford, and I feel well prepared to move on to the next level.''
Brown's departure comes a day after standout tight ends Zach Ertz and Levine Toilolo announced they also would declare for the draft with one year of eligibility remaining.
The 6-foot-1, 178-pound Brown had one interception and 65 tackles while starting all 14 games this season. He's on pace to graduate in June with a degree in science, technology and society.

In the post-game locker room, offensive player of the game Stepfan Taylor was all about his team. Stanford's all-time leading rusher was once again the Cardinal's chain-moving workhorse in crunch-time, earning him the 2013 Rose Bowl's offensive MVP award. Our inconsistent passing game allowed the Badgers to stack up on #33, but he provided some highlight reel efforts...
The line between defensive end and outside linebacker
often blurs, evidenced by the fact that 'backers Trent
Murphy and Chase Thomas frequently lined up in a three-point
stance this past season. Both of those players, in fact, came to
Stanford as defensive ends before converting to the outside
linebacker spot when former defensive coordinator Vic Fangio
implemented the new 3-4 scheme in 2010.
