ATHENS - Kirby Smart’s Georgia Bulldogs spent the last few days putting on a show at the NFL Combine. 

Stetson Bennett, Darnell Washington, Kelee Ringo and Nolan Smith jumped off the screen, and made big on-field impressions in front of NFL brass. To be frank, that isn’t surprising. Georgia has been dominating nearly everything in its way over the last 30 games. 

Bennett surprised NFL folks with his arm strength. Ringo might have gotten back into the first round with his 40 time. Smith returned to the football field nearly jumping out of the building

And Washington made one of the catches of the event, while turning in a very fast 40 time - both showing his individual skillset

                        The Georgia Bulldogs go Back to Back!

That’s just those four players - Georgia made a splash at the combine. 

That isn’t surprising. Why? This program is about pressure, and thriving in it. Bennett arrived at the combine having not publicly spoken about his arrest in late January. It was a poor moment for the 25 year old - something he would have to address. At minimum the event was a distraction for someone trying to move up in the NFL Draft. 

Then Bennett pretty well stole the show - or at least outperformed what folks expected.

Folks that know Georgia’s program should have expected these sorts of performances from Georgia’s players. This group understands pressure. They have lived in it for a long time.

Georgia has gone 29-1 in its last 30 games. It opened the 2021 season by taking out No. 3 Clemson. Then the Dawgs beat No. 8 Arkansas (37-0), No. 18 Auburn (34-10), No. 11 Kentucky 30-13, No. 2 Michigan (34-11) and No. 1 Alabama (33-18). 

A year later Georgia opened by smearing No. 11 Oregon (49-3), manhandled No. 2 Tennessee (27-10), beat No. 14 LSU (50-30), survived No. 4 Ohio State (42-41) and walked the dog with No. 3 TCU (65-7). 

12 of Georgia’s last 30 games have come against raked teams. They’ve lost once. Big moments are common for this program right now, and not just in games - in practice, too. 

“Every single day, it feels like a tryout at the University of Georgia,” Ringo told reporters at the combine.

It isn’t surprising Georgia dominated the combine, again.
