ATHENS - Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs are filling up the NFL with former players and coaches.

The Bulldogs saw 10 former players selected in the 2023 NFL Draft, but they saw offensive coordinator Todd Monken also leave Athens to revive his career in the NFL.

Georgia’s two-time national championship offensive coordinator and play-caller has plenty of experience in the NFL, and when he was offered the offensive coordinator position with the Baltimore Ravens earlier this year, Monken couldn’t pass up the opportunity.

Former Georgia Bulldog legend Roquan Smith, who has had a brilliant NFL career since being drafted early in the 2018 NFL Draft, is now the starting linebacker with the Ravens after being traded from the Chicago Bears on October 31, 2022.

Smith was asked recently about new offensive coordinator Todd Monken, and it’s clear he’s happy about the future of Baltimore’s offense.

“I’m very excited about (Todd) Monken”, Smith told reporters in a recent press conference. “I remember watching plenty of games over the fall watching the ‘Dawgs and they made it look easy a lot of the time. He utilizes everyone at their positions. There’s a lot of eye-candy and things like that. I remember thinking, ‘man if some of that stuff was brought to the league it’s going to create some problems. He’s obviously a great addition. I’m excited to go up against him every day at practice.

Before coming to Georgia in 2020, Monken was the offensive coordinator for the Tamp Bay Buccaneers and Cleveland Browns from 2016-2019.

Monken led the Bulldog offense to two national titles over the last two seasons, and called plays for one of the best offenses in program history last year with quarterback Stetson Bennett at the helm.

In 2022, Georgia’s offense scored 41.1 points per game, tied for 4th best in the country. The Bulldogs also accounted for 501.1 yards per game, which was 5th in the nation. Playing in 15 games, and going 15-0, the Bulldogs were able to score 616 total points, and account for 7,517 total offensive yards, which was 1st in the nation for both categories.

With Roquan Smith leading the defense, and Todd Monken calling plays, the Baltimore Ravens have +240 odds to win the AFC North next season according to FanDuel.
