BYU offensive tackle Brady Christensen officially declared for the NFL draft on Wednesday. Christensen tweeted out the following as part of his NFL draft announcement:
"After much thought and prayer, I am proud to announce that I have decided to declare for the 2021 NFL draft. I am ready to fulfill my dream of playing in the NFL!
My decision is bitter sweet because I must leave my teammates, coaches, and friends at BYU. My time at BYU has been nothing short of amazing. Thank you COUGAR NATION!
I am so grateful for all the great coaches that have mentored me up to this point. I want to thank my amazing teammates and I am grateful for the friendships that will last a lifetime! I want to thank my beautiful wife and family for their unwavering support. No matter where this journey takes me, I will always be a BYU Cougar." - Brady Christensen
