You have to respect a son's devotion to his mother, and in the case of Auburn running back Peyton Barber, you want to go a step further and support him.


Normally leaving school early, especially when you were third on the depth chart, would lead to head shaking and lots of sighs. But after hearing Barber's rationale, you can do nothing but stand up and applaud his decision.


In 2015 Barber rushed for 1,017 yards and scored 13 touchdowns for Auburn and many outlets project that he will be selected between the fourth and sixth round.
