Oklahoma State wide receiver Josh Stewart decided to forgo his final year of eligibility and instead declared for the 2014 NFL Draft. Stewart took to his Instagram account to make the announcement.
The 5'10 receiver proved to be an explosive playmaker for the Cowboys. He was terrific as a sophomore, finishing with 101 receptions for 1,210 yards. His production tailed off as a junior, largely due to injuries and lackluster quarterback play, and he finished the year with 60 catches for 707 yards. He averaged nearly 17 yards per punt return as a junior, including a pair of return touchdowns.
The 2014 NFL Draft is loaded with wide receiver prospects and Stewart was not ranked among Mocking the Draft's top 40 wide receivers. Stewart played mostly inside receiver for the Cowboys and figures to project into a similar role in the NFL. His draft stock should receive a boost from his punt return abilities.
