Texas A&M running back Devon Achane has declared his intention to enter the 2023 NFL draft, he announced Tuesday on Instagram.

Achane, a junior, is rated as the No. 3 draft-eligible running back for 2023 by ESPN's Mel Kiper and Todd McShay, and Scouts Inc. lists him as the No. 48 overall prospect for the draft.

In his Instagram post , Achane thanked the "12th man," adding, "It's a blessing to have been part of this great university."

Achane rushed for 1,102 yards and eight touchdowns on 196 carries this season. He also handled kickoff returns for Texas A&M and had a return touchdown for the second straight season. He finished his Aggies career with 2,376 rushing yards and 21 touchdowns, and 554 receiving yards and five receiving touchdowns.

Achane was a bright spot in a disappointing Aggies season, eclipsing 120 rushing yards in his final three games. In an upset victory over LSU in Texas A&M's finale, he recorded career highs in both carries (38) and rushing yards (215) and scored two touchdowns.

A 5-foot-9, 185-pound native of Missouri City, Texas, Achane was rated by ESPN as the No. 200 prospect in the 2020 recruiting class.
