Well, what do you expect? We're playing in the midst of a global pandemic.
Last time there was a global pandemic Georgia Tech went 6-1. A “Pop” Warner coached Pitt team defeated us ending Heisman’s 33 game winning streak

Gibbs is my only "Yes"

Clayton doesn't look like a "Yes" so far, but in his defense, he started late. I'll give him a "Maybe"

Harvin is a "Maybe"

Carter is my strongest "Maybe"

Everyone else is a "No"

Gibbs, Williams, Swilling are the only 3 I’d project right now that are NFL players that will make rosters, play, contribute for a few years

Juanyeh + Brown are guys that I’d put in the maybe category.

After that, I dont see much from the guys on the field now. Some of the DBs will probably have a shot as we have a group of long athletic guys and the NFL churns through young DBs fairly regularly to fill depth/STs slots (Mario Butler, Word Daniels, Chris Milton, Rod Sweeting type Careers)

not sure why anyone is projecting our DL; those guys get tossed around like rag dolls half the time. Clayton is kind of a one trick pony with his bull rough; not nearly athletic as an NFL DE

Buttkicker, Shaq, Smelter and Waller all were gone after 2014. Those were the last NFL guys we had IIRC.
2015 draft: Shaq, Smelter, Waller
2016: Gotsis, DJ White
2017: Butker
2018:........
2019:.........
2020: Tyler Davis

Gibbs might be the only one that is drafted (off your list and likely). I"m sure there are younger guys that can develop into that type of player so it is hard to know at this time. Sims has the raw talent but he has a lot to learn/develop.

Ryan Johnson?

This will likely be the 5th straight year with no Jackets drafted (outside of Butker and a Collins transfer). That is not normal for GT and is a reflection of the talent level on the Johnson teams starting about 2015.
Right around the time the Bobinski hire was really starting to make an impact. It’s a shame that CPJ catches about 95% of the flack for Bobinski’s öööötiness...

Maybe if we could lure some NFL players to Tech we could win a few. I think Matt Ryan and Julio Jones would have a blast going back to college. It could be like 21 Jump Street but in college.
Of course "The Hill" would keep them from admission. :lol:

The answer to the original question:

Rumor has it we have two transfers from Flowery Branch Community College, Matthew Jones and Ryan Julio!

All four of our RB's have a chance. They are uniquely different and when healthy have game.

My guess is Clayton is not 100% so it's hard to say. The best guess on DL is Domineck right now.

I would definitely say that Juanyeh has a good chance and a year or two ago, Tariq. Sometimes we just don't know what's going on back there, who's trying to cover for other mistakes, etc. Trey Swiling may be less than 100% too and he might get a look. And athletic smaller fast nickel backs are needed so you never know with others.

Harvin is not consistent enough.

Williams is the most likely to make it based on his freshman season.

Brown is definite.

Chimedza and Ryans may get a chance down the road.
I don’t see Ahmari Brown getting a shot at the NFL. The NFL is too measurables driven.
