Georgia Football: Re-Evaluating the Bulldogs' 2011 Recruiting Class

In the midst of a disappointing 6-7 campaign in 2010, Georgia head coach Mark Richt saw recruiting as a reason for optimism even as the Bulldog football program floundered. On a weekly call-in radio show, he offered the following encouragement to fans (per Tim Tucker of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution):

When you talk about in-state kids, that’s why I’ve been talking about this Georgia ‘Dream Team,’ this team of guys that I think are the best players in the state of Georgia. And I believe if they will stay in the state and come together, we can prove to the United States of America that we have the best football in the country [in] the state of Georgia. We need those Georgia kids to stay at home and do that thing for the Bulldogs, and I think everybody is going to get excited about that.

When all was said and done a few months later, his goal was largely accomplished.  

According to 247Sports, Georgia signed the nation's sixth-best recruiting class in 2011 and in the process reeled in five of the state's seven best prospects.

Here's a position-by-position re-evaluating of that Dream Team recruiting class.
