    That’s a bit of a head scratcher.

    Yep, I’m surprised by Kimber leaving, but not the others. Oh well, this opens up bunches of scholarships for better players. Wish them all the best and I understand their need to go to teams where they can get more playing time. You need to be elite to start at UGA. Go Dawgs!!!

    I'm sure Jalen has his reasons for leaving but he isn't going to find another team who can better prepare him for the NFL than the Dawgs. Good luck Jalen. We want players to be 100% Dawgs so if you don't think you can put in the work to be a champion, good luck with another team!!

    Kimber's issue is going to be his durability in the SEC. Young man is talented but his body needs work. The SEC has some big and physical receivers as well as some of the most physical running backs in the country. If Kimber is mentally tough, and if he will put in the work, I think he could fix his weakness rather quickly.

    Robinson just hasn't progressed. Again, there is talent there but it will take more to get much more playing time. The emergence Ladd and A.D hurt Robinsons playing time. Hopefully Blalock and Smith will return to full health next year. If so, I think our receivers room and DB room will be the strong points of this team.

    Speed I would have like to have stayed. I do think he would make a great impact next year but some of these guys want to be the guy and play every down. That will hardly happen with the Nations best programs because of the importance of depth.

    Jaylen Johnson wants to play and that will be difficult for him at Georgia. I'll say it again, the receivers room is good.

    I expect Kirby to be shopping the portal hard because there is some good talent in the portal right now.

    I'm just hoping I don't see Vandagriffs name pop up in the portal. He is going to be the guy next year regardless of who returns.

    He’d more than likely start next year for us and have 3 more years, so it’s not about playing time

    Hopefully, he'll pull his name out of the portal. I was looking forward to seeing what he could do for the Dawgs

    I have this gut feeling we will see some real talent in the portal come our way now that we are NATIONAL CHAMPIONS. Yea baby…go Dawgs

    I imagine we will see a few more names when draft grades become available. I am at a loss as to what JT Daniels will do. He has basically played 5 or 6 games in the last 3 years. He would be a free agent in the NFL at best. He could go into the portal, but many of the prime landing spots are already taken (unless he goes back to USC before Williams signs). Maybe somewhere like Penn State that also runs a pro style offense? Or Michigan State? I would be surprised to see him in the QB room in the fall, but have been wrong about that before.

    Attrition

    RS Soph. Warren McClendon (should stay but will probably get a decent grade)

    JR. George Pickens (man I would love for him to stay but I don't think he will)

    JR. Nolan Smith (I see him on the fence, he'll grade pretty good but could really benefit from another year)

    JR. J.T. Daniels ( I just don't know about JT. Personally, I do not think he will grade well. He needs another year but I don't think he'll start at Georgia)

    JR. Kenny McIntosh ( I think he stays and becomes one of the main feature backs and improves his stock tremendously)

    JR. Lewis Cine (He gone. he is a legit NFL prospect and really stood out this year. Wish he would stay but his grade will be to high)

    JR. Nakobe Dean ( I think he also grades out to high. However, I got a feeling it want be high enough to make his decision an easy one) Kobe is the key piece here on how many stays. If he stays, watch for another mass of players opt for another year.

    JR. Tykee Smith ( will stay and hope to improve stock)

    JR. Travon Walker (need him to stay and I think he will)

    JR. Warren Ericson (stays)

    SR. John Fitspatrick (Could stay for an extra year but not sure he will. Don't think he will get drafted but he may have other plans)

    SR. James Cook ( has already declared )

    SR. Zamir White ( he may be a late draft or he may be a free agent. Although he could, I can't see him staying)

    SR. Quay Walker ( he'll have good options either way but I think he declares unless Nakobe stays)

    SR. Kearis Jackson ( he went backwards this year in terms of NFL prospect. He'll have the opportunity but it's not going to be good. )

    SR. Derrion Kendrick ( he will be playing on Sundays next year. He will declare)

    SR. Stetson "the Mailman" Bennett ( He rides off into the sunset achieving everything he possibly could, almost. He becomes a coach or an actor)

    SR. Christopher Smith ( he will declare)

    SR. William Poole ( could greatly benefit from staying and I believe he will)

    SR. Latavious Brini (opts for another year. What else is he going to do, I guess he could enter the portal. He's a good player. )

    SR. Robert Beal ( should stay)

    SR. Channing Tindall ( the most underrated player on the team. Man I hope he opts for another year. Would be an absolute stud next year. Is playing in senior bowl so will probably declare)

    SR. Justin Shaffer (needs to stay, but most likely won't)

    SR. Jamarre Salyer ( He'll declare)

    SR. Jake Carmada ( He play on Sunday's next year)

    SR. Devonte Wyatt ( He gone)

    SR. Jordan Davis ( he gone too)

    With that said, I know nothing about their major or where they are at with their education and that will be the deciding factor with some of these.

    Nakobe Dean won the Butkus Award. How do you think he doesn't grade high @Tripp ?

    He's first round.

    Hate to see Kimber leave, I would have thought he would be a starter next year. Oh, well! That's why Kirby and crew brought in an amazing crop of new recruits for the secondary! Next man up! GO DAWGS!

    I said he will grade out TO high. Nakobe loves Georgia. The point was, Nakobe will leave for the NFL but his decision will be a troubling one for him because of his love for the university no matter how high he grades. He is not going to stay because of the money. Now some of these guys late 2nd or 3rd could probably be convinced with a huge NIL deal. That will be a future problem for the NCAA.
