Auburn wide receiver Sammie Coates has declared for the NFL Draft.
Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports is reporting that Auburn wide receiver Sammie Coates will forego his senior season and declare for the NFL Draft:

Coates graduated from Auburn on Saturday and said he wouldn't have declared for the NFL Draft if he was still an undergrad.

"If I wouldn't have graduated, it wouldn't have even been a thought," Coates said.

Coates is coming off a career-best performance in the Iron Bowl in which he caught five passes for 206 yards and two touchdowns in a 55-44 loss at No. 1 Alabama on Nov. 29.

"We've got him for one more game and I knew he'll be ready and go out with a bang," Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said.
Coates has 72 catches for 1,619 yards and 11 touchdowns over the last two seasons.
