Senior offensive lineman Ryan McCollum finished his career at A&M with action in 43 games.

Texas A&M senior center Ryan McCollum has declared for the 2021 NFL draft.

Following the announcement of senior offensive lineman Dan Moore Jr. declaring for the NFL draft on Tuesday, another member of the offensive line unit has elected to forego an extra year of eligibility in pursuit of the professional ranks. McCollum was the center for A&M’s offensive line and has been a member of the team for five years.

A&M’s offensive line, “The Maroon Goons,” have had a tremendous season, giving up just seven sacks all year compared to the 34 allowed in 2019. This includes a four-game streak where the quarterback was not sacked once.

The Spring native helped lead the Maroon Goons to be a finalist for the Joe Moore Award, which is given to the nation’s best offensive line unit.

McCollum has a career total of 43 games played and played in all 10 games this season.
