Liberty Bowl – Georgia vs. Central Florida

  • Autozone Liberty Bowl
  • Liberty Bowl/Memphis, Tennessee
  • Friday/2:30 p.m. on ESPN


Best prospect: #8 WR A.J. Green, 6-3½, 212 pounds, 4.49 seconds, Junior – If he leaves school after the Liberty Bowl, he will be among the first five players selected in the 2011 NFL Draft and could even be the first man taken. Green started the season on a three-game suspension for selling his jersey. This season, he played in eight games and had 49 catches for 771 yards and nine TDs. Over three seasons and 31 games, he has 158 catches for 2,542 yards and 23 TDs. At this point, there’s no reason for Green to stay at Georiga.

Best underclassmen prospect (not named Green): #71 G Cordy Glenn, 6-4½, 324 pounds, 5.34 seconds, Junior – He’s played on the left side at both guard and tackle and even a little right guard over three seasons with the Bulldogs. This season, he’s started all 12 games at left guard. Last year, he started all 13 games, with one at right guard, four at left tackle and then the last eight at left guard. He’s started 34 games and 32 consecutive for head coach Mark Richt.

Player that might interest Chiefs: #60 G Clint Boling, 6-4 ½, 304 pounds, 5.16 seconds, Senior – A four-year starter for the Bulldogs, Boling is solid and always available, if not terribly gifted athletically. He’s excelled on the college level with his quick feet and intelligence. He was named to the first-team All-SEC offense this season. Boling has played both tackle and guard during his career, starting 47 games.

Other potential draft choices: #49 FB Shaun Chapas, 6-2, 240 pounds, 4.72 seconds, Redshirt-Senior; #51 ILB Akeem Dent, 6-1, 234 pounds, 4.78 seconds, Redshirt-Senior; #78 OT Josh Davis, 6-6, 310 pounds, 5.34 seconds, Redshirt-Senior.

Central Florida

Best prospect: #49 OLB Bruce Miller, 6-1 ½, 248 pounds, 4.75 seconds, Redshirt-Senior - Miller earned first-team defensive honors in Conference USA for his senior season performance. He was also named the conference’s defensive player of the year for the second season in a row. The only other conference player to achieve that feat was Adalius Thomas of Southern Mississippi. This season, he had 55 tackles, seven sacks and 11.5 tackles for loss. He also had a pair of interceptions, returning them both for touchdowns. Miller has 34 sacks in his career, the most among any active player in the major college ranks.

Best underclassmen prospect: #53 DE Darius Nall, 6-2 ¾, 246 pounds, 4.64 seconds, Redshirt-Junior – Nall has been through a lot physically, as he missed the entire 2008 season while having chemotherapy in treating a cancerous growth in his chest. Had a strong ’10 season with 8.5 sacks and 13 quarterback hurries. Over three seasons on the field, he played in 39 games with 65 total tackles, 13.5 sacks, 22 quarterback hurries and three forced fumbles.
