Representatives from 20 NFL teams — including the quarterback coaches from the Jacksonville Jaguars, Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints and St. Louis Rams, the head coach (Gus Bradley) and general manager (David Caldwell) of the Jacksonville Jaguars, and St. Louis Rams director of player personnel Taylor Morton — were present for Georgia’s pro day on Wednesday. Quarterback Aaron Murray (6-foot 1/2, 204 pounds) was the key participant, with the potential to build some serious pre-draft momentum possible with a solid workout. He was taking part in his first pre-draft workout following an ACL injury suffered in late November and was medically cleared to work out at Georgia’s pro day, but didn’t go through the runs or jumps. Murray — […]

Representatives from all 32 NFL teams gathered at Georgia’s pro day on Thursday for a workout held outdoors on FieldTurf in approximately 40-degree temperatures.
Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones — once projected to be a top-10 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft — had a disappointing pro day Thursday. The experts on NFL Network’s “Path to the Draft” debate just how damaging Jones’ pro day under performance will be to his draft stock. After the workout, Jones talked to Mike Mayock about his unimpressive 40-yard dash time, saying, “It is what it is. I can’t take it back.” Jarvis Jones didn't help self at UGA's pro day, running two 4.92 40s. Worked out at rush OLB and DE. DL John Jenkins ran solid 5.20, 5.23— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) March 21, 2013
They went to rival schools. And even if they didn’t play on the same field, the ties still run deep. Calvin Johnson was a star at Georgia Tech, an All-American who would go on to become the No. 2 pick of the draft. A.J. Green was a star at Georgia, an All-SEC receiver who would be the No. 4 pick of the draft. And this summer… They trained together? It’s true. And they did it at Georgia Tech, joining a group of more than 20 NFL players there. It was a pretty good deal, with Megatron taking Green under his wing. There was just one thing: Green couldn’t wear Georgia gear. “But I can live with that if I get […]
Georgia tackle Cordy Glenn, who was one of six players left in the 2012 NFL Draft Green Room at the end Thursday night, will not be a Radio City Music Hall during the second round of the draft on Friday night.
Glenn is flying back to Atlanta and will not be in New York, according to a league source.
Two well-thought-of offensive line prospects were the center of attention when Georgia held its pro day on March 5.
NFL teams interested in drafting Georgia offensive lineman Cordy Glenn will have a decision to make.
There is no way around it: Size matters in the NFL. That said, every so often a player outside the normal physical parameters is able to defy the odds and make his way to the NFL. Georgia LB Rennie Curran (5-foot-10 5/8, 229 pounds) is trying to become the next prospect to do just that.
Georgia DT Geno Atkins stared at a camera following his first 40-yard dash and made a celebratory gesture. Later, after his short shuttle run, he again looked into a camera, this time flashing a broad smile. Before 2004, that never would have happened.
While many people may have been surprised to see the Broncos take RB Knowshon Moreno with the 12th overall pick (It was the first time the Broncos had taken a running back in the first round since 1985), it should not have surprised anyone that Denver’s choice came from the University of Georgia.
The Detroit Lions held a private workout with QB Matthew Stafford this morning in Georgia. I hear that he performed well in drills and also was put in front of the blackboard to diagram plays. Stafford demonstrated good awareness in that regard, in addition to showcasing his immense physical skills.
While Matthew Stafford was the focal point at Georgia’s pro day, there were a few other standouts on hand. Not the least of which was RB Knowshon Moreno.
It was a circus atmosphere Thursday in Athens, Ga., for Matthew Stafford’s much-anticipated pro-day workout.
