University of Georgia, Junior defensive lineman Trenton Thompson announced his intention to forego his senior season and declare for the 2018 NFL Draft Friday afternoon.

"After long discussion with my family and coaches I have decided to enter the 2018 NFL Draft," Thompson said, via his personal Instagram account. "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 played in 38 games for the Bulldogs in three seasons, totaling 127 tackles, 15.5 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, and three pass breakups. His best season came as a sophomore when he totaled 64 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, and five sacks. Thompson did not register a sack as a junior.
