If you had to pick a school that generated the most players on a list of the NFL’s top 100, you’d pick Alabama, correct?
Well, you’d be half right.
… The NFL’s Top 100 Players of 2017 features 20 former SEC players, not including former TAMU stars Von Miller and Michael Bennett.
Alabama and Georgia not only led all SEC teams, but they led all of college football, too. Of course, Alabama won several championships with the following players included, and Georgia, well, didn’t. But that’s why Kirby Smart now roams the sidelines at Georgia to help change that.
This is why I have a hard time feeling sorrowful over Mark Richt’s departure. Georgia never had a problem signing elite talent. It had a problem maintaining roster depth. As to that, we all know where the buck stopped.
Just like we know where it stops now.
