Eagles kicking the tires on LB Jarvis Jones...

Jarvis Jones' disappointing Pro-Day audition may be working in favor of his falling to the Eagles in a trade-back scenario of the draft...or at least that is a possibility the Eagles are preparing for.

Georgia's alarming discipline problem

It is a recurring theme in college sports, but especially, it seems, at the University of Georgia. An all-star recruiting class signs on to play for the Bulldogs; a solid core of returning upper classmen appears poised to take the program to the next level; expectations are at an all-time high. And then the trouble starts: suspensions, arrests, attitude and attrition problems that...

Blair Walsh endured a forgettable 2011 The one aspect of the 2012 season that isn't getting much rotation is the fact that Georgia will enter the year with an unproven punter, kicker, or return specialist.

Georgia Football: Branden Smith Hopes to Make A Name for Himself

With Branden Boykin gone, the heir to the "return man's throne" should fall to Branden Smith.
