Former Oregon tight end Colt Lyerla has signed with an agent, solidifying his intent to enter the 2014 NFL Draft.
Lyerla (6-foot-5, 250 pounds) is as athletic as any tight end in the country, including North Carolina's Eric Ebron and Austin Seferian-Jenkins of Pacific Northwest rival Washington, but will have to convince scouts and executives that off-field baggage is not an issue.
The Portland Tribune obtained a police report alleging that a seemingly intoxicated Lylera assaulted three men on a Eugene, Ore., street in April 2012.
School officials were aware of the incident, which could cast Lyerla's absence from the start of fall camp ahead of the 2012 season in a new light.
