NFL Draft 2020: Georgia
Georgia can boast a first round pick in five of the last seven seasons, but 2018 was the recent big run with three going on Day One – Roquan Smith, Isaiah Wynn and Sony Michel – and Nick Chubb being selected with the 35th overall pick.

Since there are two possible options to slide into the late parts of the first round, the over is the call.
But the world will respect and love you more for taking the shot at the under.
