In what is not much of a surprise to those who have followed the Georgia offensive line and NFL Draft prospects, Georgia OT Andrew Thomas is reportedly set to enter next year’s draft.

On the “Journey to the Draft” podcast with Fran Duffy, Pro Football Network’s Tony Pauline said he’s been told that Thomas, a junior, will declare for the draft. Pauline said he’s been “told outright’ that Thomas will declare — no equivocation on this one.

Rotoworld added that “it makes sense for the star 6-foot-5, 320-pounder, who has a fantastic chance to be the first tackle drafted in the spring (particularly with Stanford’s Walker Little recovering from a knee injury). Thomas very much has top-10 upside for next April.”

Many NFL mock drafts list Thomas, who also started most of Georgia’s games at left tackle last season, as at least a top 5 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft

Thomas this season has started all 6 games for Georgia at left tackle, and was named the SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week after UGA rolled up 325 rushing yards in season opener at Vanderbilt. He was named one of 3 team captains for Murray State and Tennessee games.

On Tuesday, Thomas was named to the Midseason All-America team by the Associated Press.
