Tech Junior Nick Claytor Plans To Declare For NFL Draft

Jan. 12, 2011

ATLANTA – Georgia Tech junior offensive tackle Nick Claytor said Wednesday that he plans to forego his senior season and enter the 2011 NFL Draft.

Claytor, 6-6, 285, started 10 games and helped the Yellow Jackets lead the nation in rushing offense in 2010. A Gainesville (Ga.) native who now lives in Atlanta, Claytor played in 35 career games and started 15 times.

A management major, Claytor is 10 hours shy of graduating.

At Gainesville High School, Claytor was considered one of the top offensive line prospects in the state. He came to Tech in 2007 and redshirted as a true freshman. Claytor’s first career start came Nov. 1, 2008 against Florida State.

A year ago, four Tech juniors declared for the NFL Draft – Morgan Burnett, Jonathan Dwyer, Derrick Morgan and Demaryius Thomas.
