Marks going to the NFL

Sen'Derrick Marks has made his decision. Auburn has made it official.

The junior defensive tackle will try his luck in the NFL. He'll speak to the media at noon on Tuesday to discuss his decision.

Marks previously said he would trust coaches about whether or not he should go pro, but currently, there are just two defensive coaches on staff. Marks has also been projected as a first-round draft pick.

He finished with 10.5 tackles for loss last year despite being hampered by injuries for half the season.

Marks could be followed by fellow Mobile native Antonio Coleman. The defensive end has scheduled his own press conference Saturday at 3 p.m. at Mobile's Williamson High School, where Coleman attended.
If both Marks and Coleman elect to leave, it would be a major hit for whoever takes over the Auburn defense next season.
