Posted at 3:07 PM, Dec 30, 2015

KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Western Michigan redshirt junior wide receiver Daniel Braverman announced on Twitter Wednesday afternoon that he will forgo his senior season and enter the 2016 NFL Draft.

The native of Miami, Florida caught 108 passes for 1,371 yards and 13 touchdowns for the Broncos in 2015, earning first team All-MAC honors. He was second in the nation in receptions, eighth in yards, and tied for seventh in touchdowns.

“As educators we want all our student-athletes to live and experience their dreams,” head coach P.J. Fleck said in a release from the university Wednesday night. “The timeline for those experiences is based off individuals’ different circumstances. Whether I agree or disagree with student-athletes’ decisions to leave school early without their degree, it is my job to provide them with facts and data (big picture) about opportunities that come up in their lives. We are proud of Daniel for all he accomplished and we wish him the best.”

Braverman finishes his WMU career with 2,503 receiving yards and 19 touchdowns. He also rushed for 76 yards and two scores during his time in Kalamazoo.
