Hosley told the Washington Post he will skip his senior season after receiving feedback from an NFL Draft advisory board recently indicating he could potentially be a late first-round draft pick or “most likely” a second-round selection.

As a sophomore in 2010, the Delray Beach native was named All-American after leading the nation with nine interceptions. He suffered a hamstring injury and a concussion in his junior year, but finished with a career-high 59 tackles and was a second-team All-ACC selection.

Hosley, a threat everywhere on the field at Atlantic, was a first-team Post All-Area selection in 2008.
