Stanford guard David Yankey to enter NFL draft

STANFORD, Calif. – All-American left guard David Yankey says he is forgoing his final year of eligibility at Stanford to enter the NFL draft.

Yankey said in a statement released by the school Monday that “the decision was not easy. I have loved my time at Stanford and am a proud member of Nerd Nation. I am humbled at the prospect of joining a long list of Stanford alumni currently playing in the NFL.”

Yankey led one of the best offensive lines in the country last season.

Stanford ranked seventh nationally for fewest tackles for loss allowed (4.14) and 11th for fewest sacks allowed (1.14) per game. The unit also helped Tyler Gaffney run for 1,709 yards.

Yankey could have returned as a fifth-year senior because of an injury as a freshman.
