Hope you caught all the great coverage D. Orlando Ledbetter provided of last week’s NFL Combine in Indianapolis. Several Bulldogs were involved, some of whom really stood out.
Georgia aspiring professionals will be putting their talents on display again next week as UGA plays host to its annual Pro Day on Monday at the Woodruff Practice Fields. A dozen players, including one former Bulldog will be put through the paces by NFL scouts.
The event is closed to the public but, again, “D-Led” will be providing comprehensive coverage for the AJC and I’ll probably swing by to check out the festivities and possibly provide a blog or two.
By all accounts, offensive lineman Cordy Glenn was Georgia’s big winner at the combine. He measured 6-foot-5, 345 pounds and ran an impressive 4.96-seconds time in the 40-yard dash. Tight end Orson Charles was also showing well with a position-best 35 reps on the 225-pound bench. But then he inexplicably pulled out of the 40-yard dash — expected to be a strong suit for him — and that reportedly blunted any of the momentum he had built with scouts and draft experts on hand.
But I’m pretty sure Charles will run in Athens, so you can bet there will be a lot of NFL personnel there to see him. He projects anywhere from Round 1 to 3 or 4, so there is money to be made or lost for Charles on Monday.
Following are all the UGA players currently scheduled to perform. There may be others from elsewhere. . . .
