Auburn Tigers WR Sammie Coates declares for 2015 NFL Draft

BY foxsports • December 15, 2014


Auburn wide receiver Sammie Coates is skipping his senior season to enter the NFL draft.

Coates announced the decision on Monday, saying ''It's time for me to take another step in my life and take that chance.'' He is projected as an early round pick.

Coates finished the regular season with a huge game. He had five catches for 206 yards and two touchdowns in a loss to No. 1 Alabama. His 717 receiving yards was second on the team behind D'haquille Williams, another junior who is eligible for the draft.

One of the SEC's top deep threats, Coates averaged 23.9 yards on 30 catches.

He graduated last Saturday with a degree in public administration.
