The Georgia Bulldogs are on a historic heater at the moment, between becoming the only team to repeat as College Football Playoff champs in January and reeling in another top-line recruiting class under head coach Kirby Smart.  

Given Athens University’s on-field success under Smart, it’s of little surprise that the Bulldogs are among the SEC’s leaders in putting players on the 2023 iteration of the NFL 100 list.

Where Bulldogs Rank Among SEC Schools On Latest NFL 100 List

Georgia finished in the middle of the pack when it came to the number of alumni the school placed on this year’s NFL 100 list, with two players on there.  

That duo included Cleveland Browns back Nick Chubb and Baltimore Ravens linebacker Roquan Smith, who has made a name for themselves as Pro Bowlers in 2022.  

Chubb, who hails from Cedartown, managed to slash and dash his way past opposing defenses to the tune of 1,525 yards and 12 touchdowns a year ago, eclipsing the 1,000-yard plateau for a fourth consecutive season.  

Chubb’s 1,525-yard season in 2022 was a career-best for the sixth-year back, eking past his 2019 total of 1,494 yards and matching his career-best for touchdowns on the ground (12, set in 2020) this past season.  

Over in Baltimore, Smith continued doing his thing with the Ravens after getting traded by the Bears midseason, finishing the year with 169 combined tackles, 4.5 sacks, and three interceptions.  

Both have excelled with their teams to the point that the NFL had little choice but to include them on the league’s latest NFL 100 list, serving Georgia proud on the sport’s biggest stage entering the 2023 regular season.
