Seniors Aren't the Only Ones Playing Their Last Game Between The Hedges..
The Georgia Bulldogs (9-1) host the Texas A&M Aggies (7-3) this coming Saturday, November 23rd. For the Seniors, it will be their final time playing between the Hedges of Sanford Stadium. Senior Fan Favorites Rodrigo Blankenship, Brian Herrien, and J.R. Reed among others have put in 4 and some 5 years to exhaust their eligibility. But there are several underclassman that could also join these seniors as their last time playing between the hedges.
Below is our list of Underclassman who could entertain forgoing their senior season along with our prediction.
JAKE FROMM: Jake Fromm will go down as one of UGA's best signal callers of all time. Led the Bulldogs to the National Championship as a freshman and has now secured 3 straight trips to the SEC Championship. Fromm's arm never jumped off the screen but he can make the majority of the throws due to his timing, alas Drew Brees. Fromm has not had the best season and with numerous QB's coming out this year. It may be more strategical to stay for his senior season. PREDICTION: STAY
D'ANDRE SWIFT: Swift could possibly be the top running back in the NFL Draft in April. Swift is currently 6th in all time yards for the Dawgs on just over 400 carries. Fresh legs are always attractive to NFL Scouts. Dawgnation, enjoy the next few games because Swift is heading pro. PREDICTION: Forego Senior Season
ANDREW THOMAS: The Best Offesive Tackle in the nation for possibly the last 2 years. Thomas has size, technique, and room to grow. Thomas will be a top 5 pick in the NFL Draft.
PREDICTION: Forego Senior Season
SOLOMON KINDLEY: Kindley grades out very well as a run blocking Guard. At 6-4 & 335lbs, Kindley has the size scouts drool over. Kindley could definitely come back and possibly raise his draft stock, but with the lineman waiting in the wings and a porbable first day draft pick it may be too hard to pass up. PREDICTION: Forego Senior Season
ISAIAH WILSON: Wilson is a Redshirt Sophomore which makes him eligible for early entry. He has played very well at Right tackle for the Dawgs and would probably be a starting Left tackle for any other team in the nation, besides UGA. At 6-7 & 340lbs with room to grow (yikes). Wilson could grow into your prototypical tackle in the NFL. PREDICTION: Forego Senior Season
RICHARD LECOUNTE: LeCounte deserves a lot of credit. He came into UGA hyped as a 5-star recruit and it took some time for him to earn his role. Especially with JR Reed and others vying for playing time. LeCounte has turned into a strong pass defender for the Dawgs in the secondary. We'd prefer for him to come back (as I'm sure the coaching staff would) and be a leader in what could be an unbelievable defense but with the possibility of being a 1st day draft pick may be too hard to pass up. PREDICTION: Forego Senior Season
ERIC STOKES JR: There's always a surprise each season. Especially when you have multiple teammates declaring early. Stokes is currently have a solid All-SEC type season. Is it good enough to see his name called in the 2020 April NFL Draft? Stokes being a redshirt Sophomore makes him eligible for declaring early, but we feel at least one more season for this rising star would only help under Coach Smart's tutelage. PREDICTION: STAY
