Texas A&M junior fullback Robert Wilson will forego his senior year and enter the National Football League draft, the Houston Post reported Wednesday.

A 6-foot-1, 245-pounder, Wilson finished as the SWC's sixth-leading rusher last fall with 724 yards on 134 carries. A three-year starter, Wilson piled up 1,739 yards and scored 20 touchdowns during his Aggie career."I've had him in the report since his freshman year as the No. 1 fullback," said draft analyst Mel Kiper. "I think he'd be a top pick in the first round."

Wilson is the first SWC underclassman to announce plans to enter the NFL draft this season. College undergraduates have until Feb. 1 to file a letter with the NFL stating their desire to enter the draft.
