The most talented players in college football continue to flock to the NFL. The latest player to do so is Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk, who announced on Monday that he was leaving Waco to enter the NFL Draft.

"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," said Seastrunk in a statement. "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 had a big year for Baylor in 2013, finishing the season with 1,177 yards and 11 touchdowns even though he missed two games and most of a third with an injury. Seastrunk, a five-star recruit out of high school, originally signed to play with Oregon before transferring to Baylor in 2011.

The 5-foot-10, 210-pound back is projected as a second-round pick this year, and is currently rated by as the fourth-best running back in this draft class.
