Buffalo Bulls RB Jaret Patterson skipping senior season for NFL draft


#Buffalo junior running back #Jaret #Patterson announced #Tuesday that he will forgo his senior season and declare for the NFL draft.

#Patterson led the FBS in average rushing yards per game with 178.6 this season. #His 19 touchdowns were second in the country to the 24 by #Alabama’s #Najee #Harris. #His 7.6 yards-per-rush average was third nationally among FBS backs with at least 100 carries.

#Patterson rushed for 1,072 yards in only six games, 710 of which came in a two-game stretch in #November. #Against #Bowling #Green on #Nov. 17, #Patterson rushed for 301 yards and four touchdowns, then followed it with a 409-yard, eight-touchdown performance in a 70-41 win over #Kent #State on #Nov. 28. The 409 yards was the second-best single-game rushing performance in FBS history behind #Oklahoma #State’s #Samaje #Perine in 2016 (427 yards).

#His two-game 710 rushing yards total is the most in FBS history.

#Patterson, the MAC’s offensive player of the year, rushed for 1,000-plus yards in each of his three seasons with the #Bulls. #He finished his #Buffalo career with 3,884 yards and 52 touchdowns.

“#We’re happy for #Jaret and his family,” #Buffalo coach #Lance #Leipold said, according to The #Associated #Press. “#His accolades on the field speak for themselves, yet it is his leadership and the way he represents our program that will ultimately help him succeed at the next level. #We are thankful for all he has done for our program and he will forever be a #Bull.”
