Mizzou's Josey declares for NFL Draft

Columbia, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - Missouri junior tailback Henry Josey has decided to bypass his final year of eligibility and declare for the 2014 NFL Draft.

Josey finished the season with 1,166 yards rushing and ranked second in the Southeastern Conference with 16 touchdowns.

"I'm really excited to have a chance to play professionally and work on fulfilling a dream I've had since I was a little kid," said Josey.

He is only the second Mizzou running back to post two 1,000-yard seasons, as he ran for 1,168 yards and nine touchdowns as a sophomore in 2011 before sustaining a season-ending knee injury late in that season, keeping him out all of the 2012 campaign.

Josey was named the offensive player of the game in Mizzou's 41-31 win over Oklahoma State in the Cotton Bowl. He ran for 92 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winning score from 16 yards out with 3:08 left in the contest.

"Henry wants to pursue his dream of playing professionally and we wish him nothing but the best and we'll do everything we can to help him reach that goal," said Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel.

Josey joins fellow junior teammate Kony Ealy, a defensive end, in declaring for the draft.
