Mississippi State linebacker Beniquez Brown declared for the NFL Draft on Wednesday.

MSU wide receiver De'Runnya Wilson and defensive lineman Chris Jones both declared for the draft during the Holiday season.

Brown started two years at linebacker for the Bulldogs. He finished second on the team in tackles each year, including 99 in 2015. He also had 11 tackles for loss to go with four sacks this season.

He blocked a potential game-winning field goal that cemented MSU's 51-50 win at Arkansas in late November.

Brown, a Florence, Ala. native, finished his career with 200 career tackles in three seasons at MSU (8-5).

He started all 13 games this season.
