Run, run, run away, Josh Jacobs.

The Alabama junior running back has declared for the NFL draft. He joins three others: offensive lineman Jonah Williams, defensive lineman Quinnen Williams and tight end Irv Smith Jr.

As the Crimson Tide’s third-leading rusher this season, Jacobs ran for 640 yards and a team-high 11 touchdowns on 120 carries. He averaged 42.7 yards per game and 5.3 yards per attempt on the ground. He also caught 20 passes for 247 yards and three scores, averaging 16.5 yards per game and 12.4 yards per reception through the air.

Jacobs also contributed on special teams through out the years. Jacobs returned 14 kicks during the 2018 season for 428 yards a touchdown, good for an average of 30.6 yards per return.

His 15 total touchdowns ranks third in the Southeastern Conference.

Jacobs was named the Most Valuable Player of the SEC Championship Game after rushing for 83 yards and two touchdowns on just eight carries. He had a season-long rush of 59 yards during that game, too.

Originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma, Jacobs started running around in the Crimson Tide’s backfield as just a freshman in 2016. He went on to play in 42 games, totaling 1,491 career rushing yards and 16 scores on 251 carries.

Alabama is also losing senior running backs Damien Harris and Ronnie Clark. Najee Harris and Brian Robinson Jr. are set to both return for their junior seasons, and No. 1 running back Trey Sanders signed with the Crimson Tide in December.
