Washington Huskies Running Back Chris Polk Enters NFL Draft

Polk is considered one of the top five running back prospects.

According to a string of tweets by ESPN's Joe Schad, Washington Huskies running back Chris Polk will enter the NFL Draft.

"I'm ready to move on to the next phase of my life," said Polk via Schad's twitter account. "I may not be the biggest or the fastest but I will do whatever it takes to win."

The fourth-year junior ended the season on a high note with 147 yards on 30 carries and one touchdown in the Huskies 67-56 loss to Baylor in the Valero Alamo Bowl last week.

Polk rushed for 1,488 yards and 12 touchdowns on 293 carries this season after putting up similar numbers as a third-year sophomore last season. CBS Sportsline has him rated as the 56th overall prospect and no. 4 among running back prospects behind Alabama's Trent Richardson, Miami's Lamar Miller and Virginia Tech's David Wilson.

Polk submitted his name for evaluation to the NFL to see where he is projected to be drafted on Dec. 27. Based on his current decision, the answer from the NFL must have been what he wanted.
