The Eagles have made quite a name for themselves shopping at Georgia in recent seasons. In the 2022 draft, they took Jordan Davis and Nakobe Dean. Last year they drafted Jalen Carter, Nolan Smith, and Kelee Ringo, while also trading for Georgia Alum D’Andre Swift. It’s to the point people have joked the Eagles are Georgia North, and that the Eagles need a team Bulldog like Georgia does.
And at least some of those guys, are making a big impact for the Eagles. Carter and Davis have played out of their minds through the first two games. Only two players in the NFL have more pressure than Jalen Carter does. Jordan Davis is not only shutting down the run game, but he is being a disruptive force as a pass rusher too. D’Andre Swift put up a career-high in rushing yards against the Vikings. Shopping at Georgia is working for them. We have not seen much from Smith, Ringo, or Dean yet, but hopes are high for them as well. If something is working, why change it? There are certain to be a lot of Georgia players connected to the Eagles in the 2024 draft.
So now the question becomes, what other Bulldogs will join the Eagles? Georgia is the number 1 ranked team in College Football, despite the Eagles taking some of their best players. They haven’t looked as crisp so far this season, but they are still 3-0. Until they prove otherwise, they should be favorites to be National Champions for the 3rd straight season. And they are projected to have a lot of players go in the draft once again. So even though the draft is still a ways away, let’s do some window shopping.
