Miami Hurricanes Running Back Joe Yearby Declares for NFL Draft
In what has been widely speculated since late in the season, Miami Hurricanes Running Back Joe Yearby has announced his intention to enter the NFL Draft.
Yearby who was Miami’s starting running back in 2015, fell to third on the depth chart by the end of the 2016 season. Yearby rushed for nearly half of his career total in 2015, finishing with 1,002 yards. He set career highs in 2015 in rushing yards, carries and receptions, as well as receiving yards and receiving touchdowns.
Yearby joins teammates, Tight End David Njoku and Quarterback Brad Kaaya to officially declare for the NFL Draft. Yearby’s departure should be the easiest to absorb. The Hurricanes are deep at running back.
