Well, he does touch the ball more than the quarterback does.

I’m just curious – if you were playing this game, would you take Barrett Jones over any other player in the college game with the second pick in a mythical draft?  Me, I’m thinking I’d probably choose to build up my program around a position other than center.

If you wouldn’t take Jones either, who would you want?

    Clearly Hutson Mason should go in the top five given his spring game performances. I blame Bobo.

    What a stupid idea for an article. The whole redistributing players to other colleges is distracting and pointless. Wouldn’t it have been easier to just guess at next years NFL draft with the caveat that underclassmen would be eligible?

      Or simply rate who you think are the best players in college football? I though this was an exceptionally silly idea for an article, but I guess this is the silly season of college football.

    I would build my football team as follows:


    Grab the best skill guys possible; cobble together a decent OL later.

    Yeah, I’m gonna go ahead and call this the dumbest article I’ve seen this off-season.

    Staples is a former offensive lineman, isn’t he?

    And if I had to pick one position group that has been the Achilles Heel for Georgia the past couple of years with injuries and depth it would be… offensive line.

    So, me, I’m a bit more sympathetic to Staple’s perspective than some of you.

    Staples must have come back from vacaction and just simply needed to write an article about nothing. Like Staples said, and that is the only thing in the article, “it is July”. Long way to the end of fall camp and the first game. A month, unless you are in camp, and it is a lifetime. Staples, find something to write about…nobody cares about drafts on any level at the present time.
    It all about coaching. Not players. Players find coaches. Coaches make the game. First draft pick is the “coach”. If you do not think it is the coach, well go ask legions of UGA fans.

    They had this to say about Aaron Murray:

    Murray is a polished passer, an excellent decision-maker and a better-than-average runner.

    Always fun to see what others think about the program. Refreshing, really. My, how that differs from a lot of our fans’ views.
