Georgia has become a tight end factory in recent years, as the Bulldogs have had a tight end taken in each of the past four NFL drafts.

    If DW has trained well over the past six weeks, it’s possible his draft status will definitely improve. It’s just a matter of what a team needs. I wish him all the best as he proved to be a great team player

    He's one of those guys that just didn't have enough time on the UGA campus. I'm extremely selfish, but it would have been great to see him around another two years. Wish him all the best.

    I believe he becomes a dominant tight end for five years. Switches to tackle after that and becomes All Pro. Best of luck.

    Darnell cannot have enough success as far as I am concerned. He hung around Georgia this past year, when he could have used the portal to be somewhere else and be the star. He is a grinder and he plays absolutely selflessly. Watching him celebrate everytime someone else got a score as a result of his hard work blocking made me a big fan. Never a prima donna, this guy is tough as nails. Watching him hurdle opponents after a catch was amazing to watch. This guy deserves every chance to show the NFL what this year's Georgia TE offering looks like. I know he will wow them and move up in the draft. Hard work pays off Darnell and you are about to reap the fruits of your labors! Pulling for you! GO DAWGS!

    Darnell will never play at tackle, he's a freak of nature in size and athleticism, but he has a weakness in that he has long shin bones with lots of muscle but just not much mass(comparatively speaking of course). To fight in the trenches you need to be thick in your lower half. Lots of meat on them bones. Big thick ankles that can stand up to being stepped on and crunched.

    Washington because of his great upper body stregth and size, opposing players just dove at his ankles and it presented some injury problems. HIs achilles heel, pardon the pun.
