DawgNation’s “Cover 4″ concept is a popular live show on our streaming media platforms and a timely content piece on DawgNation.com, too.
It offers a good venue for a few opinions regarding the 2022 NFL Draft and the expected record number of members from the 2021 national champions that project to be picked.
The quick in-and-out game remains. It is designed to come out as quickly as the Will Smith/Chris Rock memes dropped on the internet this week.
The latest “Cover 4″ topic is:
Which Bulldog draft prospect has helped themselves the most at the NFL Combine and Pro Day?
Brandon Adams: Jordan Davis
Why: “His 2021 in-season performance speaks for itself, but the pre-draft process favors nitpicking analysts. However, any NFL talking heads who might doubt Davis were put on mute by his performance at the combine.”

Mike Griffith: Lewis Cine
Why: “Cine was not expected to run a sub-4.40 time in the 40-yard dash, and NFL teams were likely blown away by how cerebral the departing Georgia junior comes across in interviews. The film speaks for itself. Cine jumped from late second-day pick to potential first-round pick.”

Connor Riley: Lewis Cine
Why: “Relative to expectations, I think Cine turned the most heads. He really pushed himself up and could possibly see himself taken in the first round. Not many people would’ve said that before the combine.”

Jeff Sentell: Travon Walker
Why: “Cine was my choice until Walker’s Pro Day. That 4.51 NFL combine time at 272 pounds with a 35.5 arm length was stellar. But what blew my mind was watching him in LB drills next to Nakobe Dean, Channing Tindall and Quay Walker. Travon Walker has soared from a likely top 12 to top 5 to a potential top 3 pick of late. Looking at 2021 NFL contract data, he’s added another $15 million in value to his rookie contract. At least.”
