Auburn Tigers quarterback Jarrett Stidham plans to declare for the NFL, according to AL.com. Reporter Matt Zenitz said Stidham has been leaning this way for some time now.

At this time, it is unclear if Stidham will play in the Tigers Bowl game. They face the Purdue Boilermakers in the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl on Friday, December 28th at 1:30 pm on ESPN.

Stidham is a redshirt junior. If he declares for the draft, he will forgo his senior season.

The 2019 NFL Draft Quarterback class is reportedly not strong after Oregon Ducks quarterback Justin Herbert. He has not declared for the draft but is expected to be a Top 5 pick.

He has a first-round grade from one NFL Scouting Service. However, there is a chance he could go within the first three rounds of the draft.

He transferred to the Tigers following his freshman year with the Baylor Bears. This season, he has gone 209 of 348 for 2,421 yards in 12 games. He also had 13 touchdowns and five interceptions.

At Auburn, he has gone 455 of 718 for 5,579 yards in 26 games. He also has 31 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

In his lone season with the Bears, he has gone 75 of 109 for 1,265 yards in 10 games. He also had 12 touchdowns and two interceptions.

If Stidham declares and does not play in the team’s Bowl game, the team will likely have to rely on Malik Willis to start against the Boilermakers. He has gone 4 of 6 for 19 yards.

Fellow quarterback Cord Sandberg has gone 1 of 1 for 22 yards.

Wide receiver Ryan Davis has gone 2 of 2 for 43 yards and two touchdowns. Wide receiver JaTarvious Williams also went 1 of 1 for nine yards and a touchdown.
