Georgia senior LS Nick Moore accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Moore (6'3/250) has been the long snapper all season for the Bulldogs, and the fact that you may not know who he is is probably a good thing; we generally only hear about a long snapper if he struggles. It's very uncommon for a player at this position to be drafted, but Moore will look to impress scouts and get looks either as a late-round pick or priority free agent.

Five-star DE Nolan Smith confirmed his commitment to Georgia.

Smith was rumored as a top prospect -- and by top prospect, we're talking about possibly the top prospect in the country -- that could flip, but he announced on Monday that he was "staying home" for the Bulldogs. It's a massive recommitment for Georgia, especially after several top prospects did make a switch from the school to various programs. Signing day is still a bit away, but it sure seems like Smith is going to be playing in Athens.

Georgia senior DE Jonathan Ledbetter accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Ledbetter (6'4/280) was one of several players playing in the Senior Bowl that considered leaving as a junior, and he was one of the key defenders that led Georgia to an appearance in last year's championship game. He gets quality reviews because of his power, but there are questions about his athleticism at the next level. He'll get a chance to prove his critics wrong at the combine and Senior Bowl.
Dec 10 - 1:14 PM

Georgia senior WR Terry Godwin accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Godwin (5'11/185) saw his numbers dip a bit in 2018, posting a receiving line of 20-340-3 after catching 38 passes for 639 yards and six touchdowns as a junior. However, it should be noted that he was dealing with a calf injury, which sidelined him for Georgia's season opener against Austin Peay, during the early part of the season. The Draft Network made note of Godwin's route-running ability when noting his positives, but the slight frame could be an issue in one-on-one battles.

ESPN's Tom VanHaaren lists Georgia five-star 2019 verbal DE commit Nolan Smith as a prospect who could still flip schools.

Georgia has lost several big-time commits this year, and while they still have one of the best recruiting classes in the country, this would be massive. Smith is graded the second-best recruit on ESPN's list, and while the defender announced this summer he wouldn't take any official visits, he's recently checked out Penn State, Tennessee and Alabama. VanHaaren believes this will come down to the Crimson Tide and Bulldogs, but Penn State sounds like a real possibility as well. Stay tuned.

Georgia senior CB DeAndre Baker was named the winner of the 2018 Paycom Jim Thorpe Award.

Baker (5'11/185) won the award over fellow finalists Greedy Williams (LSU) and Julian Love (Notre Dame). The Jim Thorpe Award is given out annually to the top defensive back in the country. This season, Baker registered 40 tackles, a pair of interceptions and nine passes defended over the course of 12 games played. ESPN's Todd McShay ranks the Georgia standout as the No. 15 overall prospect in the draft-eligible pool.
Dec 6 - 7:47 PM

Georgia senior LB D'Andre Walker accepted an invitation to play in the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Walker (6'3/251) has been one of the stalwarts of Georgia's resurgence into a power the last two years, and ranks as one of the best pass-rushers at the outside linebacker position in the class. There are some concerns about whether nor not he's a "tweener" because of his size, but he'll likely get a chance to play in coverage in Mobile. If he does well there -- or shows signs that he can handle it -- it'll be a big boost for his draft stock.
Dec 5 - 5:17 PM

Georgia redshirt junior S J.R. Reed allowed just a 27.1 passer rating when targeted against Alabama.

Despite losing the game, Reed played exceptionally. He allowed just two receptions for 22 yards on 40 coverage snaps and recorded an interception. He is a playmaking safety who is a big part of the Bulldogs defense.
Dec 2 - 12:36 PM

Georgia sophomore RB D'Andre Swift rushed for 75 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries while catching six passes for 63 yards and a score in Saturday's 35-28 loss to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game.

Swift (5'9/215) was all over the field in Saturday's loss, putting up 138 yards from scrimmage while helping Georgia to nearly topple the defending champs. Instead, same end result as last season. So close, but so far. With his 75 yards on the ground, the sophomore went over 1,000 yards rushing for the season. He is currently sitting on 1,037 rushing yards with a 27-267-2 receiving line compiled over the course of 13 games played.
Dec 1 - 8:12 PM

Georgia junior TE Isaac Nauta caught four passes for 81 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 35-28 loss to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game.

Nauta (6'4/240) came through with a few big catches in UGA's near-win on Saturday, including a 20-yard touchdown grab to open the game's scoring in the first quarter. The junior tight end has now put together a 29-427-3 receiving line across 13 games played. He has the athletic talent to make things happen, but hasn't been an extremely active factor in Georgia's game plans for most of his career in Athens.
Dec 1 - 8:05 PM

Georgia sophomore QB Jake Fromm completed 25-of-39 passes for 301 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 35-28 loss to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game.

Fromm was superb for much of the game, showing off the arm talent that made him a highly coveted recruit in the 2017 class. However, matters would fall apart in the fourth quarter, with UGA being completely blanked on the scoreboard in the final stanza. One bizarre coaching call -- a fake punt run with QB Justin Fields at midfield, on fourth-and-11 -- allowed Alabama the opportunity for the go-ahead score, and while Fromm and crew would have one more drive, his ultimate Hail Mary attempt was not answered. With the loss, UGA will almost certainly slide out of Playoff's leading quartet (they entered the weekend at No. 4). Setting aside the rough defeat, we've been impressed with Fromm's development this year. He ends the pre-bowl portion of the campaign having thrown for 2,537 yards with a 27/5 TD/INT ratio.
Dec 1 - 7:57 PM

Georgia freshman OL Cade Mays (shoulder) did not practice on Tuesday.

Mays (6'6/318) has yet to practice this week due to a shoulder issue. His availability for Saturday's SEC Championship Game showdown with Alabama is not currently known. On the plus side, Georgia's normal starting offensive line is currently at full strength. Mays had been filling in for Ben Cleveland at right guard while the latter was out mending from a fractured fibula earlier this autumn, but Cleveland is back to health or close to it at this juncture.
Nov 27 - 4:47 PM

Georgia sophomore RB D'Andre Swift gashed Georgia Tech for 105 yards on 14 carries with a touchdown in a 45-21 victory on Saturday.

This one was over at halftime (38-7), and Swift once again was excellent in his short time on the field on Saturday. The sophomore star really came on strong at the end of the season, and the Bulldogs deserve credit for keeping Swift fresh by not overworking him. A couple of injuries also limited him, but an even better reason to not overload the carries. Swift will need to be at his very best if Georgia has any chance against Alabama next Saturday in the SEC Championship.
Nov 24 - 3:30 PM

Georgia sophomore QB Jake Fromm completed 13-of-16 passes for 175 yards and four touchdowns in a 45-21 blowout of Georgia Tech on Saturday.

Fromm was outstanding in the season finale of the Bulldogs, showing the accuracy and point that has made him one of the most intriguing underclassman at the position in the country. The LSU game will probably come back to haunt him -- at least in terms of leading the Bulldogs to the playoffs -- but the upside is obvious, and he showed as much against the Yellow Jackets on Saturday afternoon. We'll see Fromm again in the SEC Championship against Alabama next Saturday.
Nov 24 - 3:28 PM

Georgia sophomore LB Monty Rice (foot) is not expected to play against Georgia Tech on Saturday.

Rice was seen on crutches and wearing a boot on the sideline while not playing in Saturday's contest against UMass, so this isn't a big surprise. He also had an MCL injury earlier in the season, but he still leads the Bulldogs in tackles. His status for the SEC championship game against Alabama on December 1 is still up in the air.
