Georgia Football: The Top Five 2013 NFL Draft Prospects
The 2012 NFL draft has come to an end, and the Georgia Bulldogs were well represented with seven players taken in the two final days.
So now, it's time to figure out who are the top NFL prospects for the 2013 season. There are some players who could be taken in the late first round or early second round, and there are others who could go on the final day.
But there is one player who could be a top-10, possibly top-five pick if he plays his cards right.
Here are the top five 2013 NFL prospects for the Bulldogs.
No. 5: John Jenkins
John Jenkins was a monster for the Bulldogs the second half of last season and should be only better this upcoming season.
Standing at 6'3'', 350 pounds, Jenkins is a bonafide nose tackle on the next level, and as long as he maintains his weight, he will be a starter from day one.
My guess is he will be a third- or fourth-rounder but could go in the second round if he has a huge year.
No. 4: Taverres King
This could be the year where Tavarres King has a breakout season. If he does, the NFL will take notice and could go as high as the first round.
King is rated the No. 5 senior wide receiver according to NFL Draft Scout, and with him at 6'1'', 192 pounds, King has the right size to be a No. 2 receiver in the NFL.
He does need to get a little bigger, but that will come once he enters the NFL.
No. 3: Bacarri Rambo
With the length of Bacarri Rambo's suspension, he could not play at all in 2012 and possibly enter the supplemental draft.
Rambo has been projected to go as high as the first round but has to keep his nose clean from hear on out. Rambo is a playmaker who has a knack for intercepting a lot of passes.
If he stays out of trouble, he could be first safety taken off the board next year.
No. 2: Aaron Murray
Aaron Murray had a strong 2012 season, and if he's even better in 2013, he should enter the NFL Draft.
He's projected to go in the first round according to numerous draft sites, and he could go either in the early 20s or just outside the top 10.
Standing at 6'1'', he's shorter than the average NFL quarterback but makes up for his arm strength and scrambling ability.
No. 1: Jarvis Jones
One thing NFL teams can never have enough of is pass-rushers, and Jarvis Jones is one of the best, if not the best pass-rusher in the college game today.
Jones has a chance to be a top-five pick if he decides to enter the draft next year and has all the tools to be a very effective 3-4 outside linebacker.
If he has a better 2012 season and wins numerous awards, I would not be surprised if he is the No. 2 pick in the draft behind Matt Barkley.
