ATLANTA (AP) - Tennessee safety Eric Berry is skipping his senior season and entering the NFL draft.

Berry said after Thursday night's Chick-fil-A Bowl loss to Virginia Tech that he played his final college game.

Berry, the Jim Thorpe Award winner as the nation's top defensive back, says he wants to help his parents "sit down and relax."

The announcement was no surprise. Berry, a junior from Fairburn, Ga., near Atlanta, is expected to be a high first-round pick.

He had four tackles, including one for a loss of six yards, in the Vols' 37-14 loss to Virginia Tech.
