UGA junior defensive tackle Trenton Thompson will enter the 2018 NFL Draft. Thompson posted his announcement to his Instragram account on Friday.
After long discussion with my family and coaches I have decided to enter the 2018 NFL Draft. I would like to thank my family, teammates, Coach Smart and the rest of the staff for all of their support the last 3 years. Coming to Athens was the best decision of my life and the memories and friendships I’ve made will last a lifetime. Playing in the NFL has been a lifelong dream of mine and I’m excited to see what the future holds. Even though I’m moving on to the next chapter, Georgia will always be home! I certainly want to thank the greatest fans in the country for their passion and support! Thank you Jolly Nation and Go Dawgs!!
Thompson was a huge part of Georgia’s interior defensive line this season, a defense that led the Dawgs to an SEC Championship, Playoff Semifinal win in the Rose Bowl, and National Championship appearance.
In three seasons at UGA, Trenton Thompson had 127 total tackles (57 solo, 70 assisted) and 5.5 sacks.
Good luck to Trenton in the NFL and Go Dawgs!
