Oklahoma State's Joseph Randle Declares For 2013 NFL Draft


The number of underclassmen entering the 2013 NFL Draft continues to grow. The latest early entry for April’s draft is Oklahoma State Cowboys running back Joseph Randle, who announced his decision on Thursday morning.

Randle announced the news on Twitter:

The move is not a surprising one. Randle is expected to be selected in the third or fourth-round. He was a unanimous All-Big 12 First Team selection after being a dominant presence in the conference.

In 2012, Randle totaled 1,351 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Here is what CBSSports.com NFL Draft analyst Dane Brugler has to say about the running back’s game:

“Randle has a leaner-than-ideal frame and there are some questions about his ability to carry the load, but he works well through traffic and shows the balance to stay on his feet after first contact. He has excellent acceleration and wastes little time hitting his second gear through the hole, using his outstanding vision to find room to run both as a rusher and receiver.”
