Georgia Bulldogs in the NFL: 40 Dawgs Survive Final Cuts; 19 Projected to Start


Below is an update of all former Georgia Bulldogs on NFL rosters (as of Tuesday morning).

A few names notably absent:

  • Marlon Brown: After going undrafted in 2013, Brown started 15 games and appeared in 38 contests with the Baltimore Ravens over the past three years. He logged 87 catches, 891 receiving yards and seven touchdown hauls. He signed with the Broncos in late July but was released about a week later. He has not been picked back up.
  • Amarlo Herrera: A sixth round pick in 2015, Herrera appeared in just three games as a rookie with the Colts. He was released and claimed off waivers by the Titans but cut once more.
  • Ramik Wilson: Herrera’s counterpart at middle backer from his Georgia days has also been cut. Wilson was a fourth round pick in 2015 and appeared in 10 games as a rookie (including two starts). He was released by the Chiefs two days ago. Expect him to show up on a roster sooner than later.

And on the bright side of things:

  • Tavarres King: King has latched on with the Giants thanks to a strong preseason finale. A fifth round pick by Denver in 2013, King has bounced around but struggled to find a home. He logged seven catches for 126 yards and three TDs during the preseason.
  • Orson Charles: Charles may have found a home in Detroit thanks to a slew of injuries at his position, but he’s poised to be the no. 2 man at his position behind Eric Ebron.
