Auburn star quarterback Jarrett Stidham took to Twitter on Tuesday night to announce he’s leaving the Tigers for the NFL draft.Stidham made it clear he plans to play in Auburn’s bowl game.“I have decided to enter the 2019 NFL draft. I love Auburn and am a proud alumni. War Eagle, forever,” Stidham wrote on Twitter.Thankful. pic.twitter.com/FgmTxyFUAh— Jarrett Stidham (@Jarrett_Stidham) December 4, 2018Stidham is a red-shirt junior with one season of eligibility remaining. The Auburn starter entered the 2018 college football season with a first-round grade from scouting outlets, but has fallen off during the course of the year.The 2019 NFL Draft quarterback class isn’t believed to be very strong, though, so it makes sense for him to leave early. Stidham remains a potential first-round pick with the weak class.The NFL combine and his bowl performance will go a long way to determining Stidham’s draft position.last_img
