    GaSoldier  Good point, and I don’t disagree about height being a limiting factor. Just helps. 

    Steve Smith is a heck of a a NFL WR at 5-9 as well as Wes Welker.

    Georgia has had some good WRs at 6 feet and smaller: Terrence Edwards and Tavarres King are two off the top of my head

  2. GaSoldier

    True, but after watching his film. He has more speed, toughness, hands, and great in space. Don’t have to be 6’4 to be great, and also I said SINCE AJ. Not AJ lol

  3. Bulldawg Bob2

    dawgmum Bulldawg Bob2 GaSoldier  Aye. That it would DawgMum. That it would. 🙂

  4. Bulldawg Bob2

    GaSoldier  We’ll have to see. He is talented for sure, but he doesn’t have AJ Green’s size. He has the potential to be really good though.

  5. dawgmum

    Bulldawg Bob2 I think it’s funny that @DRob30 is actually David Roberson, pitcher for the Chicago White Sox. I think they meant @DRob_4

  6. Brooklyndawg

    Bulldawg Bob2 GaSoldier What I’ve seen is actually listed between 1 & 2 PM. Ludacris is scheduled to perform first.

  7. Bulldawg Bob2

    GaSoldier  At approximately 1 PM ET tomorrow afternoon, D-Rob will commit to Georgia.

    MMCSDAWG No, not really. Besides being such a dysfunctional outfit, their O-Line is nothing to write home about. Keith needed a landing place where he has really opportunities to get out into open space. I hope that, wherever he ends up, they can somehow teach him better balance, if that’s even teachable at this stage. too bad I missed him at dinner a couple of days ago, I’d have told him, stay away from the Redskins!!!

    “The scheduled doubleheader between No. 14 Georgia and Ole Miss has been postponed due to weather in the Athens area.
    The teams will resume on Sunday at 11 a.m. ET.
    The Bulldogs and Rebels were scoreless in the bottom second with Georgia working with one on when rain forced a delay. Lightning was then detected in the area, having the game be held longer. The impending forecast then had the teams postpone the game until Sunday.

    Hope KM does great with the Redskins.  I am in their area and they are the televised team so hopefully I will get to see him.


    Brooklyn will be happy camper good for Keith. Don’t like the franchise but he will succeed in spite odds their disfunction hopefully.

  12. Bulldawg36

    I wish he would get drafted-but production counts. Richt and schottenheimer should’ve gave him more carries last year.

  13. RumRunnerDoogie

    Bansai buckeroo he will make a roster as a special teamer easily. not to mention hes a really smart dude so he doesnt need football to live life

  14. DawgLink

    Oh I know. But it makes me think that inferior coaching did not develop him. I also know that OL is hardest to rank coming out of HS

  15. Bulldawg Bob2

    DawgLink  Not sure his ranking and where he was drafted has anything to do with coaching. The majority of NFL players were not ranked as 5 star prospects coming out of high school and just because a player is ranked a 5 star prospect, that doesn’t mean that automatically makes them a first round NFL talent.

  16. DawgLink

    Hard for me to believe that he was a 5* coming out of high school and gets drafted in the 5th round. Someone wasn’t coached up by the staff

  17. Bulldawg Bob2

    Just checking in ladies and gentlemen. I’ve been busy today mowing grass before this rain moves in. Monitoring on phone so if you need anything or have any issues posting or with site, please tag me in conversation.

    Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

  18. Bulldawg36

    Tick…tick…tick…tick….the clock is running out on the Falcons to draft a bulldog!!!!!!!

  19. dawgmum

    ZippyMorocco Bulldawg36 My daughter lives in Chicago. She claims the two seasons are winter, and road construction.

  20. Bulldawg36

    It’s only 50 degrees in Chicago today! Wow! You would have to pay me 1 million dollars to live there! Lol

  21. Bulldawg36

    They just refuse to draft a UGA player!!! If they decide to take one I bet it will an un drafted free agent

  22. BahitsDawg

    haws1178 Bulldawg36 btw, I am really happy that the Falcons skipped the OSU lb that everyone was pushing them so hard to take.  I am also happy and amazed that their first 3 picks were from the SEFC – South Eastern Football Corridor before they collapsed into their old habits and went way out west.

    I do wish they had grabbed Jenkins.

  23. Bansai buckeroo

    Morning Rob…..Now I don’t want you to make any of those stripers your drinking buddies. Just stick to fishing…… 🙂

  24. Bulldawg36

    Ohio st set a draft record for most players taken in the first 3 rounds! Wow!!!!!!! I hate EM!!!!!!

  25. Bulldawg36

    Gurley might would of had more success with the Falcons last year because they can throw the ball. Teams started to key on Gurley last year because the Rams had no passing game

  26. Bulldawg36

    I’m starting to predict the Falcons won’t draft a bulldawg!!! Yepper that’s my one and prediction for this years draft

  27. TtownDawg

    Good morning everyone, I’m back at work again. I swear sometimes it feel like I never leave this place.

  28. Colonial Dawg

    Good Saturday morning Dawgs!  And speaking of dogs we got a second little dawg from the Humane Society (in addition to the one in my avatar) on Wednesday.  This will be the third full day and I am worn slap out!  My wife wanted a little dog and we got a 5 year old Yorkie who, we think was probably used for puppies.  She had never been spayed and that is odd in this day.  She has attached to us and doesn’t want to be more than a few feet from us if that much.  She will settle in soon……hopefully.  At least she isn’t a barker like a lot of little dogs.
