 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  At many times through his freshman season, Georgia wide receiver George Pickens would log on to social media and see a plethora of highlight plays. Most of them featured himself, No. 1 making an acrobatic or flashy catch for the Bulldogs. He knew those plays got people riled up. Pickens didn't hesitate to say it. Everyone had an opinion. The night those discussions soared came as the clock struck midnight on Jan. 1 in New Orleans. The emerging newcomer, who hadn't been afraid to show a bold personality on the football field, posted a career-high 175 receiving yards and hoisted the Sugar Bowl's MVP trophy.

Pickens found the spotlight. There were plenty of wide grins, celebrations and having fun with his teammates while speaking in a news conference. His fellow Bulldogs, who watched Pickens torch the Baylor secondary from the sideline, were in awe. The anticipation for Georgia's top target to become one of the premier receivers in recent history suddenly had cause. "We see that everyday," senior safety Richard LeCounte said Jan. 1 after Pickens' MVP-winning performance. "He works hard and puts his best foot forward." "That George Pickens, he's different," senior linebacker Monty Rice said. 'He's a different breed. Rare." - Macon Telegraph
