ATHENS, Ga.- There's a decent chance that more Georgia outcasts will be drafted next month than ones who finished their careers in Athens.
You know about Zach Mettenberger, who is getting discussion for as early as the second round. And you know about Isaiah Crowell, who is hoping a team takes a flyer on him late despite his character issues.
But do you remember Jordan Love? The cornerback transferred from Georgia after the 2011 season, and ended up at Towson, an FCS school.
Love has a chance to be picked late, perhaps even in the fifth round, according to this story by CBSsports.com's Jason LaConfora.
Never miss a local story.
Love is yet another defensive back who could have helped last year's beleaguered secondary. Imagine Love and Nick Marshall at cornerback, and Chris Sanders at safety. Instead it was an experience-challenged secondary, and played like it most of the season.
It should be pointed out that Love by all accounts left of his own volition; a native of northern Virginia, he ended up closer to home, though a level down. Mettenberger, Crowell, Marshall and Sanders were all dismissed from the team.
