“Most don’t recognize the magnitude of Newman opting to transfer from Wake Forest to Georgia, but it’s massive,” author Anthony Treash penned.

“Newman is an athletic player who is known for his rushing ability, but his arm talent simply does not get enough credit.”

Indeed, Newman averaged more offensive yards per game last season than former UGA backup and current Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields.

Receiver George Pickens went No. 2, and then was the choice of the fans when asked who their number one pick would be off the Georgia football team.
