Georgia wide receiver Tavarres King and safety Shawn Williams have been added to the 2013 Senior Bowl roster, according to a tweet from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The game will be played on Saturday, January 26 in Mobile, Alabama. It will be broadcast on the NFL Network.

King caught 39 passes for the Bulldogs in 2012. That number was down from 47 in 2011. King also notched 8 touchdowns and 846 yards. Those numbers tied and set career season records for him, respectively. King's best game statistically was a nine-catch effort against Kentucky on October 20. On that day he racked up 188 receiving yards and two touchdowns. King also broke the 100-yard milestone with a five-catch, 142-yard effort against Alabama in the SEC championship.

Williams recorded 87 tackles for the Bulldogs this season. He had double-digit tackles against Florida Atlantic (12) and Kentucky (10). He recorded nine tackles in the SEC championship game.

King and Williams will close out their Georgia careers when the Bulldogs take on Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl. That game is scheduled for January 1 at 1 p.m. EST. It can be seen on ABC.
