Oklahoma RB Samaje Perine intends to enter 2017 NFL Draft

Oklahoma running back Samaje Perine intends to apply for early eligibility to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

Perine announced his intentions via Instagram on Tuesday.

With a strong build and a powerful running style, Perine (5-feet-10, 235 pounds) would be well-suited for an NFL club looking for more production between the tackles from the position. He has been a three-year starter for the Sooners, though his production has fallen since his freshman year in 2014. Perine ran for 1,713 yards and 21 touchdowns that season, and stamped his name on prestigious NCAA record. A week after Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon broke LaDainian Tomlinson's FBS single-game rushing record with 408 yards, Perine broke Gordon's mark with 427 against Kansas. Perine rushed for 1,349 yards as a sophomore, on 37 fewer carries under new offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley, and only 974 as a junior this year due in part to an injury that sidelined him for three games.

College underclassmen face a Jan. 16 deadline to apply for early draft eligibility.
