A.J. Green Leaving Georgia Early For NFL Draft, According To Report

WSBTV.com is reporting Georgia Bulldogs WR A.J. Green will forego his senior season to enter the 2011 NFL Draft. The report cites a pair of sources who claim 100 percent certainty, and that a potential lockout will not affect Green's decision. None of this is at all surprising, of course.

A potential No. 1 pick, Green stands to become a multi-millionaire in just a few months, if this report is true. There's no reason to think it isn't, because, again: multi-millionaire. While an A.J. Green senior year paired with a more experienced Aaron Murray would've been amazing, it was a longshot.

Green will likely play his last game as a Dawg in the Liberty Bowl against the Central Florida Knights. He'll leave with a handful of school records, though many fans will lament what might've been were it not for a sophomore-season injury and an incident that sidelined at the start of this season. Green was found to have sold an Independence Bowl jersey, earning him a four-game suspension.

Much more to come on Green's decision here, and the draft prospects of Green and other Georgia players here.
