    Congrats Georgia! FIVE first round picks is unbelievable. It also is a HUGE selling point for both the program. Five Dawgs just got huge paydays and they earned it.

    Pickens is going to be the biggest steal of the draft. He was easily the most talented player for UGA in his time there and maybe its best every WR (to take nothing away from those who came before). Pickens makes highlight-reel plays nearly every time he touched the ball - and, if he touched it, he caught it. And, I think that this is an important point, his over-reaction against GT may have been out-of-line, but it shows just how much vinegar he's got in him . . . and you can't buy that kind of intensity. I hope he goes to a team that has the arm to throw to him.

    Good thing Kirby is locked on Georgia.....he could be a future NFL coach otherwise. UGA not going to let that happen. Five first round defensive picks! What a program. More to come tonight.

    Pickens is definitely a steal. I would rather have had the Falcons pick him #8 overall than Drake London. I'll never understand the idiots they have running that team. Trade Matt Ryan for a 3rd round pick...then draft a receiver they could've gotten from almost any team in a trade or free agency. ****!! At least, some UGA players, would create SOME interest in the teams we will have to suffer through over the next 2-3 years, until Arthur Blank sells them.

    Oh well, we've got the Jaguars. LOL

    I wouldn't say Pickens is the best receiver UGA has ever had. That's an exaggeration. UGA's had some pretty darn good WR's over the years....AJ Green, Andre Hastings, Lindsey Scott, Terrance Edwards, Gene Washington, etc.. He's definitely in the conversation, though. He'll be playing somebody on Sundays THIS year. Maybe JAX will get him.

    BTW, that thing with Ga Tech was just youth. He's a lot more disciplined now...especially after having to rehab that knee for 7-8 months to come back and compete. Makes you wonder why JT Daniels took 14 months to do the same.
