Auburn RB Kamryn Pettway leaving school to enter 2018 NFL Draft


AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn football will be without both of its top running backs of the last two seasons for 2018, as Kamryn Pettway is NFL-bound.

Pettway announced he would forgo his senior season for the 2018 NFL Draft via Instagram on Wednesday afternoon.

The 6-foot, 235-pound running back led the SEC in rushing yards per game as a sophomore in 2016. Pettway missed all but five of Auburn’s games in the 2017 season due to several injuries and a short suspension at the start of the season.
