Iowa tackle Riley Reiff, ranked as the 10th overall prospect on Rob Rang's Big Board, will leave school and enter the NFL Draft.

According to Pete Thamel of the New York Times, Reiff spoke with Hawkeyes coach Kirk Ferentz and informed him that he'd be skipping his senior year of college to turn pro.

Reiff, a 6'6", 300-pound left tackle, is considered a lock for the first round and in Rang's latest mock draft, went 11th overall to the Chiefs. He's the second high-ranking tackle to leave school on Tuesday, as Stanford tackle Jonathan Martin announced his intentions to leave on Tuesday after the Cardinal lost to Oklahoma State in the Fiesta Bowl.

Matt Kalil out of USC is considered the top prospect in a strong offensive line class, but Reiff and Martin aren't that far behind.
