imageKenny McIntosh gives the perfect reason for why he picked Georgia over Florida

Kenny McIntosh wore the Georgia logo for a final time on Saturday as he played in the Senior Bowl. But that didn’t stop the Georgia running back from getting one final dig in on the rival Florida Gators.

    Kenny should have ask the fan why Florida didn't recruit him, because on 247 it only shows an offer, but under recruited by there are no recruiters, Georgia, and three other teams had at least two recruiters, and six other teams had at least one, but Florida had none, but they did have Dan Mullen for their coach, so that's probably why there were no recruiters.

    This guy is a BOSS! Always loved his attitude when playing for the dawgs, he waited for his turn and then showed the world (especially in the Florida game) who he was. He will be a real asset to an NFL team on Sundays with his amazing skill set. A DGD forever, who chose the dawgs over the gators, that can never be forgotten! GO DAWGS!

    Only third or fourth round? I know draft stock for runningbacks in general is down these days, but that's still surprisingly low for a for a back who's as both quick and physical as he is, and who also contributes so much to the passing game.

    He doesn’t need to impress anyone in a silly senior bowl.

    He has 3+ years of game tape on film, 2 years as the starter at RB, during which he led his team to 2 National Championships and 4 additional games versus top 5 defenses that most NFL draft eligible RB’s DO NOT HAVE.

    He made his mark. Tell those scouts to watch the tapes! Heck, half of them were in the stands taking notes for multiple big games throughout the last 3 years.

    Mentioning this again. The NFL doesn't care about national titles. Good thing for UGA fans too, as Matt Stafford was the #1 overall draft pick without even winning the SEC East. And no, McIntosh doesn't have this "tape" that you speak of. Guys who have 1582 rushing yards in 4 seasons - which is about the same as Bijan Robinson of Texas produced in 12 games this year - won't. Kenneth Walker III had 1630 yards last year in 12 games. He is about the same size as McIntosh (210 lbs), and no, McIntosh isn't going to run the 4.38 in the 40 yard dash that Walker did last year (he is expected to run around 4.48 to 4.52). So when you consider that Walker III only went in the 2nd round last year - 41 overall - despite a similar build, much better stats and a much better 40 time, that should give you an indicator of where you can expect McIntosh to get drafted.

    To give you a hint, Dameon Pierce had similar stats to McIntosh in college -1800 yards over 4 seasons and was the 107th overall draft pick. That's the 4th round. Note that despite suffering through a miserable 6-7 season, Pierce was nonetheless still drafted 15 spots higher than UGA's national champion Zamir White. Which, again, shows you how much the NFL actually cares about such things.

    The NFL is not going to change the way they do things to accommodate UGA. Just as they didn't for the teams that won the title before UGA and won't for whoever ends UGA's run at the top (which, despite not being a UGA fan, I actually do want to see last for 1 or 2 more seasons ... mainly because UGA deserves it because they recruit better players and hire better assistant coaches than everyone else).

    All the UGA player have been on the biggest stages the past few years. Unlike the player at Southern New MExico St or wherever, that never played in a "big" game against the best talent in college football. JUst roll the tape.
