    Lol. Should be WB instead of WR. Wide Blocker.

    3 already including Cone. Smelter will make the league easily (just hopefully he waits until the end of next season) and I could see Waller being a combine monster like Hill was.

    A lot of guys said the same thing about PJ Davis. I'd say he's working out.

    Here's the thing... For every "project" that turns our good or bad, there is the same amount of "sure thing" players that pan out good or bad. Its a crap shoot.

    Calling B.S. on this response, I will trust the coaches... While I am not the biggest fan of the offense we run, CPJ has proven to take guys later on in the recruiting season that turn out to be GREAT players for us.

    Paul Davis
    Adam Gotsis
    Lynn Griffin
    Freddie Burden
    Anthony Autry
    Jamal golden
    Tony Zenon
    Deon Hill

    All were taken "late" in the process near the end of their classes and all were either said to be a stretch or a reach. All have turned out to be great players... and lets not forget about Robert G...

    All I am saying is this results in an average of 7 wins. If you are happy with that ok. It takes a class like 2007 year in and year out to get to 9 or 10 wins on average. That is fact!

    I wouldn't call any of those players GREAT yet. Gostis is the only starter on that list. Golden has been a solid kick returner but I'm not impressed with his coverage abilities. I'd say that the list has some contributors on it, but to say that those players are "GREAT" is a stretchhh

    I will give you an example.We have several off. lineman commited now. Before I go further with this. I will say that I am very happy with these guys. But if I had to make a choice between anyone of these guys and David Sharpe. There is NO DOUBT who I would take. Now what I am saying is this is before we seem them on a cllege team.

    I agree with this... And add that we land several "contributors" in recruiting and a small amount of BCS Play Makers... Sorry, just keeping it real guys.

    Stop getting hung up on stars! The staff likes this guy. That should tell you enough.

    I do not understand the love of stars. Who assigns the stars? Chad Simmons at Scout whose expertise is that he played in the band? Please!
    UGA's "Dream Team" of 2011 is 5 - 3 on the season so far. If a coaching staff accepts a commitment 3 months before signing day, they probably like the recruit. They are not "desperate" for a recruit at this time.

    I don't think it's being ignored really. Jayparr just seems to think that the rating services are simply better finders and evaluaters of talent than our staff. If they haven't found and evaluated a kid, it's counted in his thinking as them rating him low, iiuc.

    The stars rating system helps those of us who aren't up on the finer evaluation points on a guys talent level. Not that they are without fault or the final word. For me it's a general and collective opinion and it helps me understand the general talent level of a guy coming in. Now with that said I do trust guys like Eric who are closer to the facts.

    So if we signed a 5 star I would think WOW ! Good get but then if Eric came in and said the guy was slow on cut blocking I would think something like Hummm that may not be good for us.

    It's just helps in looking at the big pic.
