Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets junior linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu said he will seek an evaluation from the NFL draft advisory board to give himself an idea of where he might be selected should he decide to turn pro.

"You never really know if you’re good or you’re decent," Attaochu said. "I just want to assess my game from professionals and not listen to what (other) people have to say."

Attaochu is sixth on the Jackets with 59 tackles, but he leads the team in both tackles for loss (10) and sacks (8). He earned an honorable mention for the All-ACC team as a sophomore in 2011; he finished that year with 59 tackles, 11.5 of which were for a loss, including six sacks. He has played in 34 games over the course of his Georgia Tech career and became a regular starter last year.

Georgia Tech faces Florida State in the ACC Championship game on Saturday night.
