Georgia has former players all over the NFL landscape. And they're not just filling out roster spots. They're making an impact on games from positions all over the field. You didn't have to watch much of this weekend's NFL slate to see a former UGA player on the field.
And the one I find most intriguing is Marlon Brown. The guy who once donned a Georgia cap on national television before finishing out a lackluster career in Athens is now taking full advantage of a roster need in Baltimore. (h/t Weiszer)
We all knew Brown had this kind of talent in him, and to be honest we saw a lot of it last season before he was injured. But he played in high school against competition that, by my untrained eye at least, did not ready him for the SEC. So it took awhile for him to rise above the coverage.
Regardless, really proud of what Brown has done thus far. Coach Harbaugh got a good one at a cheap price - 3 years for $1.5 million. Not a bad value. But hopefully the diamond has only begun to shine.
