    Can't quite put my finger on it, but I've always really liked Daijun Edwards and Marcus Rosemy Jacksaint since day 1. Maybe because they were less-heralded, but seemed plenty skilled (under rated?) to me. Maybe because they "stayed"... despite injuries, lack of playing time, and ultimately NFL eligibility the pervious year. Maybe because when the mic was put in front of them, they talked about their teammates and hard work put in. Maybe because at the root of it all, they're DGSs. It would please me to no end to see them both have solid NFL careers, as underdogs once again. Go Dawgs!

    To add, they are both selfless and willing to do whatever the team needs. They also really seem to love the game. Watching Edwards slip tackles and Jacksaint block downfield were things of beauty to me. On a lighter note, I lost count how many times TV announcers called him "Saintjack". As far as the NFL, Edwards hopefully will get a shot. I know he will always play above any numbers like his measurements or in the 40.

    I hope he gets drafted. This guy isn’t flashy but he was always reliable and is just a ball player. Knows how to find holes that other RB don’t see.

    2 very tough players. Edwards was a late addition to the class when a slot opened up. He was the mop up back for 2 years. He was the guy that UGA would hand the ball off to 10 times in a row when UGA had a big lead and wanted to run out the clock. Everybody in the stadium knew Edwards was getting the ball on a run between the tackles especially the entire D. He took a beating and kept coming back. Then kept coming back year after year until he became RB1. Not sure he is fast enough for the NFL but he is plenty tough. Hope he makes it.
