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

New, 1 comment

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.
