    Draft Results

    Here is a list of how many players our 2018 opponents lost to the draft:
    Bowling Green lost 0
    Clemson only lost 3–unbelievable, they will be even better this season
    Duke lost 0
    uga lost 6, really not that many for a #2 team in the country
    Louisville lost 4
    Miami lost 6
    North Carolina lost 3
    Pitt lost 3
    South Florida lost 2
    Virginia lost 2
    Virginia Tech lost 5
    We of course had no one drafted and no one will be even good enough to even make any squad as a free agent.
    We have the same talent level this season as we did in 2017 and will probably win 5 games in 2018.
    Sorry, but it is what it is.

    We've got 6 in the mix as undrafted signees or being asked to attend tryouts. Simmons, Griffin, the Austin twins, Burden and Jeune so far.

    I wish them well.

    See lot of free agents out there but dont know who will cut it......the twins are going to work out for falcons as dbs but list is short for the jackets.

    The Austin twins and Freddie Burden don’t have enough of a skill set to make any NFL team.
    Simmons is unlikely to make any squad either as he didn’t even start for us for the majority of the year and if you can’t start for us, well.......

    The Austin twins played hard but they lack the speed. I think Jeune has a chance with the Rams. Makes tough catches and his blocking would help Gurley.

    Ricky is in my humble opinion the only guy who has the ability to make a team.Twins played hard but lack of size hurt them .Burden may surprise us but Ricky has good speed and size.

    So, what you're saying is there is a significant gap in the athletic ability between players at Georgia Tech and the players at many other, more successful programs? Shocking. How can we remedy this?

    If I am wrong, I will admit such. I am glad that they played for us, but am just being realistic.
