Citing his family as the main reason behind his decision, Notre Dame RB Cierre Wood has declared himself eligible for the 2013 NFL draft.
Wood (6’0″ 215) rushed for 742 yards and 4 TDs this past season, but had over 1,700 rushing yards and 12 TDs the two seasons prior. The NFL Advisory Council has reportedly told Wood he’s projected to be a third-round draft choice.
The Fighting Irish back joins fellow teammate TE Tyler Eifert as underclassmen entering the 2013 draft pool. Eifert is widely considered the draft class’ top tight end prospect.
Today (Tues. Jan. 15th) is the deadline for underclassmen to declare themselves eligible for the draft.
