The decision was widely expected after he chose to return to Utah after the 2020 season despite the possibility of becoming a first-round pick in the 2021 draft.
Lloyd is the No. 8 senior player on ESPN NFL Draft Analyst Mel Kiper Jr.’s most recent major board.
Lloyd was a consensus All-American in the 2021 season, leading Utah to its first Pac-12 championship and a Rose Bowl appearance. He is a double Butkus Award finalist and was The Associated Press Defensive Player of the Year this season after finishing the season with 110 tackles, including 22 for losses.
