Auburn WR Schwartz enters NFL draft
Auburn wide receiver Anthony Schwartz announced on Saturday that he will forgo his senior season and enter the 2021 NFL Draft.
Schwartz was Auburn’s second-leading receiver in 2020 with 54 receptions for 636 yards and three touchdowns.
His decision came shortly after the junior opted out of playing in Friday’s Citrus Bowl loss to No. 14 Northwestern.
Schwartz took to Twitter to announce his decision.
“To the Auburn Family, I will miss running out to 90,000 of you screaming and shouting for Auburn. Even through the tough times, you were always there and still supported me. Auburn has taught me plenty of life lessons, and for that I will be forever grateful.”
The 6-foot, 180-pound wideout is best known for his remarkable speed. Schwartz set the youth world record with a 10.15 time in the 100-meter dash during the 2017 Florida Relays. He also took silver in the 100 and gold in the 4×100 relay at the IAFF U20 Championships in Finland in 2018.
Schwartz will join teammate K.J. Britt, who left the team in December before the end of the regular season, to prepare for the draft.
