Texas A&M’s Speedy Noil declares for 2017 NFL Draft

Texas A&M wide receiver Speedy Noil’s time in College Station has come to an end.

On Wednesday, the former five-star recruit announced his intentions to forgo his final year of eligibility to declare for the 2017 NFL Draft.

“I’m excited to announce that after careful consideration and numerous discussions with my family and coaches, I have decided to forgo my remaining college eligibility at Texas A&M and enter the 2017 NFL Draft,” Noil wrote in a statement on Twitter.

“I want to thank my family, my teammates, Coach (Kevin) Sumlin, all my teachers, administrators, and a special thanks to (Lee Hood) and you, the A&M fan base for all of your support.”

Noil has incredible talent, but his inability to stay out of trouble off the field could turn some teams off.

Noil has been suspended multiple times during his career at Texas A&M, with the most recent suspension coming for the team’s bowl game against Kansas State following an arrest for marijuana possession.

The 6-foot, 200-pounder finishes his Aggies career with 88 catches for 1,134 yards and nine touchdowns. His most impressive campaign came during his freshman season, where he hauled in 46 passes for 583 yards and five scores.

Noil is currently projected as a late-round pick or undrafted free agent.
