Oklahoma State DL Brendon Evers Declares for 2023 NFL Draft

Brendon Evers

One of Oklahoma State’s most experienced and veteran leaders along the defensive line will forego the rest of his senior year to prepare for the 2023 NFL Draft.

Sixth-year senior defensive tackle Brendon Evers announced on Thursday that his days of playing college football are over as he prepares for the next level.

Evers opted to return to Oklahoma State in 2022 thanks to a sixth-year of eligibility granted by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. He appeared in five of Oklahoma State’s six games, but has delt with some nagging injuries throughout his career.


Here is Evers announcement on social media Thursday afternoon, thanking those around him for their support throughout his career at OSU.

Last season, Evers was an integral part of Oklahoma State’s defensive success up front, playing in all 14 of the Pokes games in 2021, recording 21 total tackles, three sacks, and six TFLs.

Over his six-year career, Evers appeared in 53 total game for Oklahoma State and appeared in at least 10 games in every year in Stillwater, save the 2017 season in which he redshirted.

Oklahoma State’s defensive line is likely the one place they can afford to lose such an experienced play, as players like Tyler Lacy, Brock Martin, Collin Clay, and Trace Ford are playing really good football for the Pokes.

OSU will host Texas on Saturday, in a game of two of the top four teams in the Big 12 at the halfway point of the 2022 season.
