The coronavirus pandemic impacted the 2020 NFL Draft in a major way. NFL teams weren't allowed to host any in-person meetings, they weren't allowed to visit individual player's Pro Days, and the NFL Draft itself was the first real sporting event broadcast virtually.
The idea of a seven-round draft being held virtually just a handful of years ago seemed impossible, and looking back just 10 months later now, it seems like common daily practice.
But at least the 2020 NFL Draft class had the Combine. At least they had Indianapolis and Lucas Oil Stadium to cement their names high up draft boards. This year, for the 2021 NFL Draft, that's not the case.
Schools like Georgia will host Pro Days at their facilities, and Georgia's time and date have been released.
On March 17, at 7:45 am, the rising seniors will have their Pro Day, and in the late afternoon starting at 5 pm, Georgia's draft-eligible players will display their skills.
Here's the list of players that are expected to participate:
Players with eligibility that have declared:
- OL Trey Hill*
- EDGE Azeez Ojulari
- CB Tyson Campbell
- CB Eric Stokes Jr.
*Hill underwent minor surgery on both knees in December and could be limited.
Seniors off to the NFL
- OL Ben Cleveland
- CB DJ Daniel
- LB Monty Rice
- TE Tre' McKitty
- DB Mark Webb
- DE Malik Herring*
- S Richard LeCounte
*Herring tore his ACL during Senior Bowl practices.
