NFL Draft 2012: Alvester Alexander Leaves Wyoming A Year Early

Wyoming Cowboys running back Alvester Alexander has declared for the NFL Draft as a junior.

The Wyoming Cowboys will be without running back Alvester Alexander for the 2012 college football season since he declared as a junior for the 2012 NFL Draft. He is only the second Cowboy to leave school early.

Alexander was the leading rushes among the team's running backs with 695 yards, but that was second overall to quarterback Brett Smith's 710. Alexander had six touchdowns this season, a step down from 2010's 10 on the ground. He had 27 touchdowns in his career, third most in school history.

The 5-foot-11, 208-pound running back has surprised everyone with this move and he will now need to work his way into being drafted in the late rounds. Ghaali Muhammad and Brandon Miller will take over in the backfield this fall.
