Kirby Smart doesn’t need Waffle House to recruit. He doesn’t mug wearing 404 hats.
What he does do is point to the NFL Draft, which has the potential to be a pretty special occasion for Georgia, starting tonight.
… All told fifteen Bulldogs are draft eligible. The record for most Red and Black players selected in the modern draft era is eight, a feat accomplished in 2002 and 2013.
Breaking that record would be a PR win for a staff that’s billed itself as able to turn top high school talent into top NFL talent. One could argue that it’s essential that this class has a great showing. It’s the second class of Kirby Smart recruits in the draft, but arguably the first class of recruits really fully recruited and developed by this staff.
If in fact all goes well, the Bulldog coaches will be releasing graphics and tweets over the course of the next few days ostensibly to congratulate the former ‘Dawgs. But those are really a message to the future ‘Dawgs watching.
Gosh, that could be bigger than Virtual G-Day for recruiting.
Okay, let’s have a little fun. Give me your over/under on the number of Dawgs who go in the first round tonight and the over/under on the total number who get drafted. Then tell us on a scale of one to ten how much bragging Georgia will be doing about it to recruits over the next month.
