UGA Tackle Andrew Thomas announced on his Twitter that he will forgo his senior season, as well as the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1, to prepare for the 2020 NFL Draft.
"As my season ends, I want to thank God for the opportunities He has granted me. I also want to thank the University of Georgia for an incredible three years. My time in Athens has shaped me into the man I am today, and it was a privilege to play between the hedges on Saturdays," Thomas said. "Since I was a kid, I've dreamed of playing in the National Football League. Today, I'm taking a step to turn that dream into a reality -- I will be forgoing our upcoming bowl game and my senior season, and will be declaring for the 2020 NFL Draft." 

The decision is hardly surprising given Thomas' ceiling as a potentially high draft pick.

Thomas is expected to be a Top 10 pick.
