    Draft Scout Player News
    10/08/07 - The extent of Georgia's loss to Tennessee on Saturday wasn't limited to positioning in the SEC East race. The Bulldogs also lost one of their most significant emotional leaders for at least the next month. Georgia coach Mark Richt said on his Sunday teleconference that senior tailback Thomas Brown is expected to miss the next 4-6 weeks after breaking his collarbone. 'It's a shame. He's probably the toughest guy on our football team,' Richt said. 'I know he'd play with it... . He's just that tough. He would go anyway, but we can't take that risk.' Brown had been one of the team's most inspirational stories this year, returning from a torn anterior cruciate ligament injury suffered midway through last season to be one of the most productive backs in the league. Entering the Tennessee game, he ranked 10th in the SEC in rushing with 393 yards and led all conference running backs with eight touchdowns. But he left Saturday's game in the second quarter after carrying six times for 20 yards and further injuring a left shoulder he first injured on a touchdown run last week against Ole Miss. It was against the Rebels that Brown had the best game of his career, rushing for 180 yards and scoring three touchdowns. Brown's absence will also be a devastating blow to Georgia's special teams. He was the Bulldogs' kickoff return man and deep safety on the kickoff coverage team. Brown also served as a gunner on the punt team -- one of the players who line up wide and sprint down the field to cover a punt returner. 'He's probably one of the best gunners in the country,' Richt said. - Ledger Enquirer

    10/01/07 - RB Thomas Brown injured his shoulder diving into the end zone on his 50-yard touchdown run in the first half. He returned and played well in the second half.

    10/01/07 - Ole Missed tied the score 17-17 in the third quarter, before Georgia scored 28 unanswered points. Thomas Brown scored two of his three touchdowns in the second half and finished with a career-high 180 yards rushing. "He (Thomas Brown) played big. He finally broke out into space and made some big runs," said Georgia coach Mark Richt. "He made safeties miss, which we've been harping on for everybody. He had 180 yards and three touchdowns and he averaged 11.2 per carry. That's just a beautiful job. But you don't get that many yards unless the line plays very well. The majority of those runs are because of those in front of him paving the way. I am very happy for our senior leader Thomas Brown." The Bulldogs finished with a season-high 328 yards rushing and hope to continue that attack when they head to Tennessee on Saturday.

    10/01/07 - GAME BALL GOES TO: RB Thomas Brown overcame a bruised shoulder to rush for a career-high 180 yards and three touchdowns, including a 50-yard burst in the first half.

    10/01/07 - SEC Week 5 Offensive Player of the Week: Thomas Brown rushed for a career-high 180 yards on 16 carries with a career-high three touchdowns in Georgia's 45-17 win over Ole Miss. Brown's 50-yard TD run in the second quarter tied the score, 7-7. It is the tied for Georgia's longest rush of the season. Early in the fouth quarter, Brown scampered 41 yards for a touchdown. He also had a 4-yard TD run in the third quarter. Brown also had an 11-yard pass reception and two kickoff returns for 18 yards, for a total of 209 all-purpose yards. - SEC Sports

    Brown is a good back, but he seems to be injury prone. He came back early from a serious knee injury to begin the season just to get hurt again. It's a shame because he was doing very well.

    He will probably be an UDFA.

    Could be a 7th round flyer - when healthy he might be a NFL returner and 3rd back.

    Well if he decides to come out I'd go with my boy Rashard Mendenhall from Illinois. The guy is a BEAST. The only thing questionable on him is whether he can pass block or not and I'd venture to say he would have to work on it. The only reason I say that is because he is always out in a pass pattern. The skill set he has is outstanding IMO. Big, fast (4.4 40), excellent hands, and is very elusive.

    'Shards stats this year:

    Yards Avg per carry Rushing TD's
    1113 6.2 12

    receiving yard avg catches TD's
    226 9.0 25 2


    Take into account that Illinois is an awful passing team and these numbers are pretty awesome through 9 games. I'm telling you guys 'Shard is the real deal and would look perfect in a Cowboys uniform. He's quiet, doesn't cause trouble and works his *** off and he's only a Jr. The article below is talking about Rashard entering the NFL a year early.

    Yvenson Bernard from Oregon St would be a nice second day pick

    if we were to get a 1st day pick...........Ray Rice, Felix Jones, Savage, Charles (if he can fix his fumbling for the rest of the season), or Mendenhall.
