Georgia cornerback Kamari Lassiter seemed like a potential first round selection at the beginning of the process but has since dropped down boards.

The University of Georgia has placed 27 players in the NFL Draft in the last two draft cycles alone, considerably more than any other football program. It's become a bit of a surprise to see anything other than stocks rising for former Bulldogs after their career in Athens.

Unfortunately for one Georgia Bulldog, however, that's not been the case this draft cycle. Georgia defensive back Kamari Lassiter's draft stock has taken a bit of a hit during the lead-up to the 2024 NFL Draft.

Prior to the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, Kamari Lassiter was tracking to be a back end of the first round draft selection according to the NFL Mockdraft Database. Now, as the draft approaches, Lassiter has fallen to the 42 overall prospect in the latest mocks. Additionally, NFL Network Draft Analyst, Daniel Jeremiah has updated his Top-50 prospects in this draft.

Back on March 7th, Daniel Jeremiah had Kamari Lassiter ranked No. 36 overall on his top prospects. In his latest Top-50 board, Lassiter has fallen 15 spots, completely out of the top-50. Speculation around Lassiter's lack of elite top-end speed has been the No. 1 contributing factor to his descent. Lassiter ran in the 4.5s at Georgia's pro day and did not run in Indy at the NFL Combine.
