Defensive tackle Jordan Elliott leaving Mizzou for NFL draft

“It has been an amazing three years at Missouri,” Elliott posted on Twitter. “I want to thank God for teammates for pushing me and continuously holding me accountable, Coach (Barry) Odom, Coach (Brick) Haley and the staff for molding me and teaching me lessons that I will take with me for the rest of my life. Thank you all for helping me grow as a man and as a player. I am ready for the next chapter in my life and will be declaring for the NFL Draft, foregoing my final season of eligibility.”


Elliott, who transferred to Missouri from the University of Texas, is coming off a strong junior season worthy of All-Southeastern Conference honors.
