Athens — Georgia’s Matthew Stafford and Knowshon Moreno announced today their intentions to enter the NFL draft. And with them exits 95.5 percent of the Bulldogs’ offense from this past season.
Stafford, a junior quarterback, and Moreno, a redshirt sophomore tailback, accounted for 5,291 of the Bulldogs 5,538 yards in offense in 2008. They also combined to account for nearly half (44) of the team’s 89 touchdowns with 26 and 18, respectively.
Well, you know, we were #1 there for how long? I did not know about this upcoming change in the pay structure in the NFL. Dan was trying to explain it to me. BUT, it was the reason that both these guys are leaving.
