Jesse...thank you for helping the old man out. He has become pretty erratic.Jesseandrippers wrote: ↑Mon May 03, 2021 7:30 pmGA didnt have 11 but had several key players out including:sweet67 wrote: ↑Mon May 03, 2021 10:51 amYou aren't making any sense old timer.

You are mixing subsets. One is injured players. UC obviously had some. I'm sure GA did as well. The players who are healthy and sit out is another one. Again, GA had 5 for every 1 UC had. Usually, the guys who sit are the ones who have the talent to be drafted, (though there are obviously ones who don't, but delude themselves in thinking that they do) no?
I only watched the draft through the 5th pick in the 1st round, to see who the Bengals would take. However, I just checked, and here is the draft breakdown thus far into the 6th round:
GA: 1st three rounds: 6 picks. UC none.
UC: 4th round: 1 pick. 5th Rnd. 1 pick.
Round 5: GA - 1 pick.
Round 6: So far, A, 1 pick.
Stop now. You are in quicksand.
Voluntary or involuntary, both teams were missing key players.
You stated that half the Georgia starters sat, so tell us, which 11 starters were they missing?
Went to NFL and were drafted:
Junior defensive back Eric Stokes
Senior linebacker Monty Rice
Senior Defensive back D.J. Daniel
Senior guard Ben Cleveland
Senior tight end Tre McKitty
Transferred to Florida: Jermaine Johnson
Senior center Trey Hill (knees) - DRAFTED
Freshman corner back Kelee Ringo (shoulder)
Freshman receiver Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint (leg)
Senior safety Richard LeCounte (undisclosed) -DRAFTED
Junior running back James Cook
Seven NFL draft picks is substantial. How many of those “quality” starters that went to the NFL were the Cats missing?
UC was missing
Starting RB Gerrid Doaks (drafted by Dolphins)
Starting safety James Wiggins (drafted by Cardinals)
Starting corner Ahmed Gardner (likely 1st round pick im 2021 draft)
Starting center Jake Renfro
