Ole Miss Running Back Snoop Conner Declares for NFL Draft

OXFORD, Miss. — Ole Miss junior running back Snoop Conner announced Wednesday his decision to forego his senior season and enter the upcoming NFL Draft.

In his message, Snoop thanked God, his coaches, his teammates and fans before closing with the following:

After continuous prayer and talks with my family, I have made the decision to forego my senior season and enter my name in the 2022 NFL draft. I will ALWAYS be an Ole Miss Rebel. It is not a goodbye, Rebel Nation, it is a see you later. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING.”

Snoop is the second running back the Rebels have lost to the NFL Draft since the Sugar Bowl on New Year’s night. Jerrion Ealy also declared he will be foregoing his senior season as well.

The Hattiesburg native finished 2021 with 647 yards and 13 touchdowns. For his career with the Red and Blue, he tallied 1,580 yards rushing on 304 attempts for a 5.2 yards per carry average. He has scored 26 touchdowns in his time in the Ole Miss uniform.

Conner thanked head coach Lane Kiffin and running backs coach Kevin Smith for pushing him and for “…showing me what it’s like to have a Pro Mindset and attack every day with a purpose.”

We wish Snoop the very best in all his endeavors. He will be missed.
