Auburn's Lemonier entering NFL draft

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) – Auburn defensive end Corey Lemonier is skipping his senior season to enter the NFL draft. Lemonier said Monday it was a tough decision but the one "that was best for me and my family." Lemonier had 5.5 sacks last season after earning coaches' first-team All-Southeastern Conference honors with 9.5 sacks as a sophomore. Auburn coach Gus Malzahn says Lemonier "is a class act and we wish him nothing but the best as he pursues his dream to play professional football." He praised Lemonier's contributions both on and off the field.
The 6-foot-4, 246-pound Lemonier played in 34 career games, making 24 starts. He finished his Auburn career with 98 tackles, 17 sacks, 24 tackles for loss and 33 quarterback hurries. © 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
