Virginia DE Zane Parr to declare for NFL draft

By Matt Bonesteel

Virginia defensive end Zane Parr will not return to the Cavaliers for his final year of eligibility and declare for the NFL draft, the school announced Tuesday.

"I have expressed to Zane the benefits of staying at Virginia and pursuing his academic and athletic opportunities for his final season," Coach Mike London said in a statement. "In the end, Zane decided declaring for the draft and withdrawing from school to prepare for it is the course of action he wants to pursue. I wish him the best and appreciate his contributions to the program."

Parr played in all 12 games and started 10 in 2010. He finished the season with 48 tackles, 8 tackles for a loss and 2 sacks.
