Why would any pro team want a player who played college football on a team that was guilty of always choking in the big games?

TJ Jones and Stephon Tuitt, both of Notre Dame, are both GA products.

I see, DLed, that you're pandering to all of the UGA readers with the header of just the UGA connections. Really disappointing.

think crowell should have waited one more year if he was still academically eligible for college. too young. going to see what it takes for the nfl and don't think he is at the point where he is ready to handle it.

Stanford has 8 guys invited to the NFL combine, GT only 2.

Maybe now the CPJ apologists can stop with the Academics excuses for GT's poor FB program.

You want to see how fast Crowell can run? Try to pin an illegal gun charge on him and he will run the fastest 40 on record. LOL

@BigCrimson75  

Only if he is playing for Seattle, Carolina, or San Fran.

He has to go to an already strong defense, if he went to the Falcons or some other soft defense, he'd get exposed.

@TheOldGuy   So you are an expert on what it takes to make a NFL team. Where did you play or coach at the NFL level?

If you really took the time to count how many players from each school on that list, you have way too much time on your hands.

@POAD2013 Wanna see how fast a Tech guy can run? Let some Tech chicks loose in a golden corral,and WE ALL will run or get crushed against the walls.

@SeenDatB4  

On my web Browser (Opera). I simply do a "Ctrl-F" and then type in "Stanford", and it tells me how many times that word appears on the current web page, and then I hit the "next" button and go through and count the number of player's names that Stanford appears next to.

It took me about 3 minutes.

It should be obvious by now that I am a lot smarter than you are!
