Auburn's Tre Mason to enter NFL draft

Posted: Updated:
AUBURN, AL - Auburn tailback Tre Mason is skipping his senior season to enter the NFL draft.

The Heisman Trophy finalist announced his decision on Thursday. Mason says he's "a dream chaser, and I'm trying to turn this dream into a reality."

Mason broke Bo Jackson's 28-year-old school single-season record with 1,816 yards. He also ran for 24 touchdowns.

Mason rushed for 195 yards and scored two touchdowns in Monday night's BCS championship game against Florida State Monday night. His tackle-breaking 37-yard run with 1:19 left gave the Tigers the lead before losing 34-31.

Mason is projected as a likely mid-round draft pick.

Mason will join fellow Tiger Greg Robinson, who announced yesterday that he too would enter the NFL draft.
