ATHENSGeorgia Bulldogs and coach Kirby Smart will be without one of their key players on the 2022 national championship team in 2023. 

Darnell Washington nannounced that he is forgoing his final season of eligibility to go to the NFL. This is something that a lot of people found coming. Washington is a potential first round pick in the upcoming 2023 NFL Draft

Washington is one of the freakiest players in college football in recent history, standing at 6’7” and 270 lbs. He is a blend of an offensive tackle and a wide reciever, and his lack of production will likely not keep him from being a top pick.
