Linebacker recruiting is a high priority for Georgia this cycle, as the Bulldogs are expecting heavy losses at that position.
Twelve former Bulldogs attempted to put forth their most draft-worthy efforts Monday at UGA's pro day, hoping to wow 46 scouts and team personnel from 30 NFL teams.
The emotions of a devastating loss to UCF in last season's Liberty Bowl, which cemented UGA's first losing season in 15 years and ushered off the team's seniors with a wimper, are still fresh for the Bulldogs, and they want to avoid a repeat.
Donald Hawkins received a visit from Georgia O-line coach Will Friend and says the coach called him "the No. 1 tackle, period."
The Georgia offensive line is dangerously thin in experienced starters, but so far the unit has held up reasonably well and is even showing signs of improvement.
The 2012 class needs more help along the offensive line, and the Bulldogs probably will find some of that help in the junior college ranks.
