College teams have traditionally been steady NFL pipelines, with the top three being Ohio State, Alabama and Clemson. On Monday night, a new pipeline will be on full display: Georgia. Kirby Smart does not have the same program going at Georgia that his mentor, Nick Saban, seemingly had forever at Alabama. But the Bulldogs are on their way up, and Sports Illustrated writes that it would be an upset if they aren’t soon right there with the other three in producing quality pro football prospects on an annual basis. True freshman QB Jake Fromm is already considered a future first-rounder by some scouts even though they have to wait four years for him. SI put together a list of top 2018 draft prospects, and though number one is Minkah Fitzpatrick, DB, from Alabama, there are four Georgia players to keep your eye on, including Roquan Smith and Nick Chubb.
