One of Baylor’s top offensive players has declared for the 2014 NFL Draft. Running back Lache Seastrunk made his decision official to Yahoo! Sports Monday.
“Playing in the NFL has been a lifelong dream of mine, and I’m fully prepared to take the next step toward realizing that goal,” Seastrunk said. “I’m excited for the opportunity to compete in the NFL draft process. I look forward to giving teams every ounce of energy I’ve got and proving to them that I’m a good person, a relentless competitor, and a great player, too.”
Seastrunk led the Big 12 in rushing this past season with 1,177 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns. He was the only running back in the conference to average over 100 rushing yards per game with 1078.0 ypg and he led the conference with an average of 7.45 yards per rushing attempt.
With Seastrunk moving on, look for the Bears to start handing off the football to Shock Linwood more in 2014. Linwood was the team’s second leading rusher with 881 yards and eight touchdowns this season.
