Oregon defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux will forgo his senior season and enter the 2022 NFL Draft, he announced Monday.

Thibodeaux, one of the most highly touted prospects, is expected to be a top-five pick next year after enjoying a standout career over three seasons with the Ducks.

The first-team All-Pac-12 defender will skip the Alamo Bowl to start his preparation for the NFL, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. He finished 2021 with 49 tackles (12 for loss), seven sacks, and two forced fumbles.

Overall, he notched 126 tackles and 19 sacks through 30 appearances at Oregon.
