The Tigers' star has declared for the 2018 NFL Draft.

Kamryn Pettway has made his NFL Draft decision.

Auburn's standout running back announced on Instagram this afternoon that he's going to pursue a professional career.

"The Auburn family will always have a special place in my heart. I want to thank you all for a wonderful four years. War Eagle!" he wrote.

Pettway was one of the best running backs in the SEC in 2016, totaling more than 1,200 yards and 7 touchdowns. He played in only five games in 2017 due to injuries and a suspension, totaling 305 yards and 6 touchdowns on 76 carries. Pettway did not travel with the team to the SEC Championship Game or the Peach Bowl.
