Mizzou RB Josey declares for NFL draft

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Missouri junior running back Henry Josey has declared for the NFL draft.

Tuesday's announcement comes four days after Josey was the offensive player of the game for the Tigers' Cotton Bowl victory against Oklahoma State. Josey ran for three touchdowns, including the go-ahead score. Josey called it a ''bittersweet decision.''

Junior defensive Kony Ealy announced after the game that he'd be leaving for the NFL.

Josey missed all of 2012 with a left knee injury, and rebounded this year with 1,166 yards rushing while ranking second in the SEC with 16 touchdowns. He and Tony Temple are the only Missouri running backs to post two 1,000-yard seasons.

Missouri has depth at running back, with Russell Hansbrough and Marcus Murphy returning next season.
