Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs continue to recruit elite talent and develop it at a high level.
Georgia does a good job of developing players and that’s a big reason why the Dawgs have won back-to-back national championships.
Now, the NFL gets a chance to further evaluate Georgia’s top talent at the 2023 NFL combine.
The scouting combine will be held at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana, from Feb. 28 to March 6.
A total of 319 NFL draft hopefuls received invitations to the combine.
The SEC has four of the six schools with the most players invited to the combine.
The SEC continues to dominate both recruiting, the NFL draft, and the national championship game.
1. No. 3 (tied) Michigan Wolverines: 9 Michigan had nine players invited to the 2023 NFL combine.
The Wolverines went 13-0 to start the 2022 college football season before losing a shootout to the TCU Horned Frogs in the College Football Playoff semifinals.
2. No. 3 (tied) LSU Tigers: 9 How did Brian Kelly and LSU shock the country and win the SEC West.
Well, the Tigers had a lot of talent in 2022. Six of LSU’s nine players invited to the NFL combine play defense.
LSU’s top NFL draft prospect is edge rusher BJ Ojulari, who is expected to be selected as the No. 50 pick in the draft.
3. No. 3 (tied) Florida Gators: 9 Florida Gators quarterback Anthony Richardson, who was invited to the NFL combine, is a polarizing NFL draft prospect.
Richardson does not have a ton of experience at the college level.
4. No. 3 (tied) TCU Horned Frogs: 9 There’s been a lot of talk about how the national championship game was not very competitive.
However, there is no denying that TCU had a lot of NFL talent on its roster for that game.
