On Thursday, a crucial member of the Oklahoma State football team’s defensive line was gone. Before the game against Texas, Cowboys senior defensive tackle Brendon Evers made the announcement that he will miss the rest of the season to focus on the NFL Draft.
On Twitter, Brendon Evers stated, “God occasionally has a different plan than the one you initially believed…. I have decided to forgo the remainder of the 2022 season and get ready for the 2023 NFL Draft after much prayer and discussion with my family, coaches, and medical team.
In the statement, seasoned defensive tackle Evers of Oklahoma State football thanked God, Cowboys Nation, his coaches, teammates, family, and friends.
The senior lineman made 21 tackles, including six for a loss, and three sacks while playing in 14 games for the Cowboys last season. Evers admitted that his decision to leave Oklahoma State early was influenced by the persistent shoulder issues that had plagued him throughout his undergraduate career.
Evers stated, “I’ve been trying to play through it, but it’s become too bad and the best thing for me and my career was to shut it down and get it corrected and prepare for the draught,” according to Jacob Unruhof The Oklahoman.
As an interior defender with Big 12 starting experience, it appears that Brendon Evers will at least draw some interest in the NFL Draft, assuming he stays healthy.
Without him, the Oklahoma State Cowboys will need to find another way to advance.
