Andrew Datko (born August 15, 1990) is an American football offensive tackle who is currently a free agent. He played college football at Florida State University.

High school career[edit]

Datko attended St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he played for the state title every year of his high school career. As a senior, he was part of St. Thomas' 14-1 5A State Championship squad.

Considered a three-star recruit by Rivals.com, Datko ranked No. 35 among offensive guard prospects in the nation.[1] He chose Florida State over Central Florida and Florida International on October 29, 2007.

College career[edit]

As a true freshman, Datko started all but one game at left tackle for the Seminoles. He played 852 snaps, more than any freshman on the line, and recorded 21 knockdowns.

Datko subsequently earned multiple All-Freshman honors, as he was named to FWAA′s Freshman All-America team,[2] Sporting News Freshman All-American team,[3] and Rivals.com′s Freshman All-America team.[4] He is the first Florida State tackle to garner freshman All-America honors since Brett Williams in 1999.

Professional career[edit]

Datko was selected by the Green Bay Packers in the 7th round of the 2012 NFL Draft, 241st overall. He was released during final cuts on August 31[5] but was signed to the practice squad a few days later.[6]
