an air of su­pe­ri­or­ity

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

Green, mean­while, is pro­jected as one of the most ex­plo­sive play­ers of the 2010 sea­son. The 6-foot-4-inch, 207-pound ju­nior shares the cover of a re­gional Sport­ing News pre­sea­son col­lege foot­ball edi­tion with Ge­or­gia Tech quar­ter­back Josh Nesbitt. Many ex­perts ex­pect Green to be a top-10 pick in next year’s NFL draft. He’ll be joined in the Bull­dogs’ re­ceiv­ing corps by for­mer Ge­or­gia quar­ter­back Lo­gan Gray. Gray con­sid­ered a trans­fer af­ter coach Mark Richt named Mur­ray the starter, but he de­cided to stay and play a new po­si­tion: re­ceiver. The 6-2, 192-pound ju­nior from Mis­souri will re­main as Mur­ray’s backup — while shag­ging passes from him on Satur­days.

Flanker A.J. Green is a pre­sea­son All-Amer­i­can and po­ten­tial top-10 NFL draft pick, but a run­ning of­fense could pre­vail this sea­son as Ge­or­gia looks to im­prove on a 8-5 record.
