Carson Wells declares for NFL draft

·1 min read

Through his four full seasons in Boulder, Carson Wells cemented himself as one of the greatest tackles for loss producers in Colorado Buffaloes history. He was the nation’s leader in TFL’s per game in 2020 and finished his college career with 38 of them — tied for eighth-most in CU history.

A second-team All-Pac-12 linebacker in 2020 and an honorable mention performer in 2021, Wells announced on Monday that he will be declaring for the 2022 NFL Draft. With a dominant college career now under his belt, the Florida native should be a dangerous defensive weapon for any team in the NFL.

But first, Wells, along with fellow linebacker Nate Landman, will play one final college game in February’s East-West Shrine Bowl.

Wells took some time to thank several former and current coaches and staff members in a tweet on Monday.
