2014 NFL Draft: San Diego State RB Adam Muema deletes tweet about declaring for draft

USA TODAY Sports

San Diego State running back Adam Muema quickly deleted a tweet about him declaring for the NFL Draft.

Drama is not something that San Diego State needs heading into Saturday's Famous Idaho Potato Bowl against Buffalo. Aztecs running back Adam Muema caused a stir when he announced via Twitter Monday night that he was declaring for the NFL Draft, but that was quickly deleted.

The school is aware of Muema's action and he also has sent in paperwork to the NFL to see what his draft status would be, but he has not received that information back yet. Making a decision before knowing where he stands from NFL scouts is not a wise move.

San Diego State did not allow Muema to be available to the media on Wednesday, but head coach Rocky Long addressed the situation:

"I don't know. I haven't talked to him about that," Long said. "I told him that he'd better make an informed decision about coming out. We haven't even received the (evaluation report) back from the NFL yet."

[...]

"I think sometimes they don't see the true picture. All we do is (tell them), ‘Make informed decisions. Don't come out and say dumb stuff without knowing what the situation is."

Long also added that unless a player is to be projected as a third-round pick that he strongly advises against declaring for the NFL Draft.

The red shirt junior rushed for 1,015 yards and 12 TDs this season despite being slowed down by an ankle injury that limited him to just 118 yards in the first four games. According to NFLDraftScout.com, Muema is the 26th rated running back in the 2015 NFL Draft class. Based on that information Muema would be served best to stay one more year.
