Oklahoma State defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah announced he will bypass his senior year and enter the NFL Draft.

“I have decided to forgo my last year of eligibility and declare for the NFL Draft,” Ogbah (@Eman_OSU38) tweeted.

“I would like to personally thank Coach Gundy, Coach Glass, Coach Spencer, Coach Clements and the rest of the Coaching staff for giving me the opportunity to play the game that I love and passionate about!”

Ogbah projects to be a first round pick. CBS Sports’ Rob Rang has Ogbah going ninth overall to the Buccaneers.

Ogbah recorded 13.0 sacks this season to go with 17.5 tackles-for-loss, three forced fumbles and two recoveries. He was named a first-team All-American by Sporting News and was the Big 12 Co-Defensive Player of the Year with Baylor’s Andrew Billings.
