One big piece of Baylor's high-scoring offense this season will be missing in 2014. Redshirt junior running back Lache Seastrunk told Yahoo! Sports that he will leave school early and enter the NFL draft.

Seastrunk carried the ball 158 times for 1,177 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2013. He was a key cog in the Bears' top-ranked offense, which averaged 618.8 yards per game. He transferred from Oregon prior to the '12 season, and in his two years in Waco he rushed for 2,189 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Seastrunk told Yahoo! in a statement that an NFL playing career has always been his dream.

"Playing in the NFL has been a lifelong dream of mine, and I'm fully prepared to take the next step toward realizing that goal," Seastrunk said in a prepared statement. "I'm excited for the opportunity to compete in the NFL draft process. I look forward to giving teams every ounce of energy I've got and proving to them that I'm a good person, a relentless competitor and a great player, too."
Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty has already announced that he will return to the Bears in 2014.
