AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn receiver Darvin Adams is skipping his senior season to enter the NFL draft.

The school announced the latest departure Monday, following similar decisions by quarterback Cam Newton and defensive tackle Nick Fairley. The deadline for entry was Saturday.

Adams led the BCS national champions in receiving the past two seasons, catching 52 passes for 963 yards and seven touchdowns as a junior.

He set a Southeastern Conference championship game record with 217 yards receiving.

Adams ranks in the top 10 in several Auburn career receiving categories, including a tie for third with 17 touchdowns. He is also sixth in yards (1,978) and catches (115).

Adams' 60 catches as a sophomore was a school single-season record.
