|David Yankey is leaving Stanford after a highly decorated college career.|
Stanford offensive lineman David Yankey will enter the 2014 NFL Draft, he announced Monday in a press release issued through the school.
Yankey (6-foot-5, 313 pounds) earned All-America recognition at left guard this season, showing off his strength and footwork pulling on the Cardinal's trademark power-run play. Yankey played left tackle as a junior in 2012, also earning All-America honors.
With Yankey stonewalling top Pac-12 defenders such as Will Sutton of Arizona State, Stanford averaged 207 rushing yards per game and allowed the fewest sacks in the Pac-12.
