Sooners RB Anderson to enter 2019 NFL Draft

Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson plans to enter the 2019 NFL Draft.

Anderson announced his intentions via Twitter.

“With my degree already in hand and after much discussion with my family, I have chosen to set my sights on the NFL and focus on preparing for the 2019 NFL Draft,” Anderson said in the post.

Anderson was lost to the Sooners on Sept. 8 with a season-ending knee injury. It was the third season-ending injury in four seasons for Anderson.

“He’s overcome so much in his career, and if anybody can do it again, it’s Rodney,” Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said. “He’s played a lot of great football and has a lot more ahead of him.”

Anderson was rated a first-round talent before his latest injury. He led the nation in yards for scrimmage in the final seven games of his college career, including 201 rushing yards in the College Football Playoff shootout against Georgia at the Rose Bowl.

In 2015, Anderson went down with a broken leg two games into the season. Upon returning for spring practice, Anderson was hurt again, this time with a broken vertebra in his neck, erasing his 2016 season.

He returned to win the starting job midway through last season.
