Florida wide receiver Antonio Callaway, who was suspended and missed the season for alleged credit card fraud, reportedly will enter the 2018 NFL draft.

The move would not be a surprise, though Callaway’s numerous off-field issues will hurt his draft stock.

Callaway (5 feet 10, 193 pounds) led Florida in receiving in 2016. He finishes his two-season UF career with 89 receptions for 1,399 yards and seven TDs. While he doesn’t have elite top-end speed, he is fast and elusive, and possesses quick feet. He also has value as a return man.

He has the talent to be a second-day pick, but his draft stock has dropped because of the off-field issues; along with the credit card fraud, he was accused and cleared of sexual assault, then cited for marijuana possession, which was dropped to possession of drug paraphernalia.

His team interviews will be vital, and he will need to show NFL teams he has the needed maturity to play on the next level.
