ATHENS - The conclusion of the Super Bowl marked the official end of the NFL season, and with it came the start of the NFL draft. Next on the agenda for NFL teams is deciding which prospects to prioritize and creating a strategy for the selection day. However, the NFL combine needs to occur before they can make any final judgments, and the league has already released the official invite list. 

There are eleven ex-Georgia Bulldogs that will be attending the NFL Combine. Thus, an invitation to the event was sent to each and every player who submitted a draft declaration this offseason. This year's class from Georgia has a good shot of continuing their recent dominance of the event because of their great performances in various disciplines. 

Let’s take a look at some of the biggest NFL Draft prospects from Georgia:

Brock Bowers 

Position: TE 

The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Brock Bowers came rushing into the NCAA football scene out of California's Napa High School. Bowers showed scouts his flexibility as a high school multi-position athlete by lining up at quarterback, tight end, and linebacker. He solidified his status as a consensus 4-star prospect at TE.

His playmaking skills, particularly in pivotal games like the CFP National Championship and against South Carolina and Ohio State, demonstrate his mindset for big games. Bowers has been compared to great players like Florida's Kyle Pitts due to his output, skill set, and notoriety in only two seasons, positioning him as a consensus TE1 candidate for the draft. Bowers is poised to have an early impact on any team that signs him, given his trajectory to become a dominating force in the NFL.

If sports bettors had the opportunity to use Caesars Sportsbook promo code on the first Georgia-based player to be picked in the draft, Bowers is that guy. 

Amarius Mims  

Position: OT 

Amarius Mims stands out as an offensive tackle candidate for the 2024 NFL Draft with an unusual combination of physical strength, speed, and agility. He followed in the footsteps of other late bloomers who had a huge effect in their last years of college before entering the draft. Given his physical traits and on-field performances, Mims is still being talked about as a high draft choice, even though he has only started a handful of games and durability concerns have been raised. 

His natural athletic abilities and versatility on the offensive line make him a potential option for NFL clubs seeking a cornerstone offensive lineman with potential but not yet ready.

Kamari Lassiter 

Position: CB 

Well, American Christian Academy in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, was where Savannah, Georgia native Kamari Lassiter first made a name for herself. As a four-sport athlete who competed in football, basketball, track and field, and baseball, Lassiter did more than light up the gridiron. 
He was a dynamic football player who excelled in the defensive backfield and wide receiver positions. Even while ESPN failed to rate the four-star recruit, 247Sports and Rivals did, and he is now ranked just outside the top 175 players in the country.

Ladd McConkey  

Position: WR 

The following level is a natural fit for Ladd McConkey's skill set. His agility off the line, route accuracy, and ball-tracking abilities stand out. His aggressive play belies his little stature; he has special team and slot-receiving potential. However, his handling of hard corners and his ability to generate separation against great defenders are ongoing problems. There is room for improvement in his move from catch to run. With his intelligence, work ethic, and versatility, McConkey has the makings of a star offensive threat in the NFL, particularly in designs that use his speed and route-running prowess. 

We expect him to be a mid-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft since he seems a good professional player who can contribute to an NFL offense.
