Auburn WR Adams skipping senior season to apply for NFL draft

AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn wide receiver Darvin Adams is skipping his senior season to apply for the NFL draft.

The school announced the latest departure Monday, following similar decisions by quarterback Cam Newton and defensive tackle Nick Fairley. The deadline for entry was Saturday.

Adams led the BCS national champions in receiving the past two seasons, catching 52 passes for 963 yards and seven touchdowns as a junior.

He set a Southeastern Conference Championship Game record with 217 receiving yards.

Adams ranks in the top 10 in several Auburn career receiving categories, including a tie for third with 17 touchdowns. He's also sixth in yards (1,978) and catches (115).

Adams' 60 catches as a sophomore was a school single-season record.
