    You don't have De'Nylon Morrissette, C.J. Smith or Cole Speer listed?

    You're right. Hopefully, just an oversight as I haven't heard about a transfer. A little sad about Blaylock. I guess he wants to go somewhere and start, but I honestly don't know about that, at least not at the P5 level. He just doesn't have that burst and quick twitch that he did before his injuries. But he'll catch any ball that's close to him.

    “Yet to announce future intention”… Is there any thought, rumor or news that Ladd and/or AD will not return?

    Do not figure how Dom will do better elsewhere? He is a fan fave but is just not the "old" Dom who signed on. If he is a Dawg through and through he would stay..one would think? Don't think I do not like Dom...surely do. I wish him the best.

    Receiver room is getting lighter by the day.

    Griffith thinks AD Mitchell is draft eligible. Ladd is, but not Mitchell. Regardless, they have given no indication they are transferring either.

    I really hope this works out for him. He’s been a DGD and I’ve hated to see him injured for so much of his time here. My impression from afar is that he has handled all this well. So best of luck and thanks for being part of some great seasons!

    Dom Blaylock, Kearis Jackson two of my favorite Dawgs. Course ALL the Dawgs are my favorite Dawgs !! Hate to see them go but I know they have to do what is best for their lives. Now in total ( and Selfish on my part) contradiction to what I just said I sure Hope Ladd and AD will decide to stay. But if they go, No there sure won’t be any animosity on my part. They to have to do what they feel is best for them. I’d just love to see them in action along with the other receivers both new and old. See what the receiver room can do behind a new QB whether it be Beck, BVG, or Gunner. Success and the change from success can sometimes be some what painful. I’ll always be grateful for the wonderful memories ALL these Dawgs have given this ole codger !! Wish Em All the very best that life has to offer. Go Dawgs !!

    Sounds like Bryan McClendon is cleaning out the WR room. Look for a big change in the offensive style, next year. My God...they're gonna be better than 2021 & 2022.

    They could've competed against most NFL Teams over the last 2 years. Next year...they could go to the Super Bowl and win.

    Good grief @rxmaster let me list it from the NFL itself.

    PLAYER ELIGIBILITY

    To be eligible for the draft, players must have been out of high school for at least three years

    And we see that Adonai Mitchell graduated high school 3 years ago:

    Graduated in 2020 just like CJ Stroud, Bryce Young and Darnell Washington: https://www.maxpreps.com/nv/las-vegas/desert-pines-jaguars/athletes/darnell-washington/?careerid=jc43q89rtitee

    What is your basis for continuing to say that Mitchell is not eligible for the draft? Please tell us. Because - as has been stated several times - NFL draft eligibility has nothing to do with when Mitchell earned NCAA eligibility and joined UGA. Or anything having to do with the NCAA at all ... the NFL doesn't even require you to attend college in the first place, plus they have drafted players from NAIA schools, from JUCO and from overseas (the CFL and rugby players) and even former Olympic sprinters. Now Mitchell isn't coming out because he has barely played: 18 games for 560 yards including only 9 catches this year. But he could if he wanted or needed to.

    As for Ladd McConkey, there is nothing for him to announce. Redshirt sophomore WRs don't leave for the NFL off 50 yards per game unless they are impetuous or are facing academic/financial/legal problems. Kearis Jackson is leaving because he has done his 5 years and even has his degree. But for McConkey the combination of his average numbers - 770 yards - and measurables (6', 185 lbs, 4.5 40) and UGA's not playing an offense that resembles anything that is done in the pros makes him a 5th round pick at best. With a strong 2023 season - get that 50 ypg up to 75 - in a more conventional offense he can get up to the 3rd round (and also get his degree).
