Georgia Bulldogs coverage on the Home of the Dawgs

  • MOBILE, Ala. — Outgoing Georgia defensive lineman Jonathan Ledbetter was on the move Monday afternoon, hustling to his 4:30 meeting with Senior Bowl playbook in hand. “I’m ready,” Ledbetter said, dashing off to the first of many NFL-related meetings during the league’s draft process. Ledbetter, one of UGA’s four permanent captains this season, hopes to represent the Bulldogs well in Saturday’s game (2:30 p.m. NFL Network). Ledbetter, along with long snapper Nick Moore, are UGA’s only representatives. Outside linebacker D’Andre Walker pulled out on account of a nagging groin injury, and cornerback Deandre Baker declined his invitation. Ledbetter, as much as any player at the Reese’s Senior Bowl this week, has a chance to improve his draft stock with strong performances in the South team’s practices under the direction of the San Francisco 49ers staff. Jim Nagy, a former scout with the Seattle Seahawks who has assumed the role of Senior Bowl executive director, likes the passion and versatility Ledbetter offers. “The upside to John Ledbetter is he loves football, … it jumped out last year when I was in Athens, watching that kid practice,” Nagy said. “He’s so combative, he plays hard, he jumped out on the practice field at Georgia — and Kirby and those guys really coach those guys hard, so it’s not like he’s at a place where there’s not good effort — and he still stood out.” Ledbetter,  voted co-winner of the Vince Dooley Defensive MVP team award after this season, hopes to jump out on the practice field again this week in south Alabama. Some project Ledbetter as high as a fourth round pick, others as low as the sixth round or suggest free agency. This week of Senior Bowl practice will be important as hundreds of NFL scouts, coaches and general managers get a hands-on look at Ledbetter running through one-on-one drill work, in addition to interviewing with teams. “He’s versatile, I think he came into the year a little heavy, and then as the course of the year went on, mid-October, November, getting into the Florida game, some of those games he was really hard to block,” Nagy said. “A movable guy, he can play in any system, you can move him up or down the line, he has heavy hands, he plays hard, he chases, so I think he could fit with anyone. “He’s a really interesting guy, too.” Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy   The post Georgia captain Jonathan Ledbetter ‘jumped out on the practice field’ appeared first on DawgNation.
  • MOBILE, Ala. — Georgia football outside linebacker D’Andre Walker left an impression last August that carried over to Monday’s opening Reese’s Senior Bowl press conference. That says a lot, considering Walker wasn’t able to make the trip to practice and play in the annual all-star game on account of a nagging groin injury. RELATED: D’Andre Walker surprise scratch, still nursing groin injury The Senior Bowl takes place at 2:30 p.m. (TV: NFL Network) at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy, previously the Southeast regional scour for the Seattle Seahawks, praised Walker heavy and bemoaned his absence. “D’Andre was a guy, for me, going back to the scouting process at Seattle, you’re putting on tape last year watching (Davin) Bellamy and Lorenzo Carter, and to me, 15 (Walker) should have been playing over both of those guys,” Nagy said. Jon Gruden and the Oakland Raiders staff is coaching the North team, and Kyle Shanahan and his San Francisco 49ers staff will coach the South, which includes former Georgia players Jonathan Ledbetter and Nick Moore. Bulldogs’ All-American cornerback Deandre Baker, a projected first-round pick, was invited to play in the Senior Bowl but declined. Baker, of course, also skipped playing in the Sugar Bowl. RELATED: Kirby Smart understands Deandre Baker’s decision to sit out bowl Walker, however, accepted his invitation to play and Nagy though he was a go until hearing from Walker’s agent last Thursday. It did nothing to diminish Nagy’s respect for the Bulldogs’ sack leader. “Every time he was on the field he was disruptive,” Nagy said. “If you did a per play disruption …. every time the guy stepped on the field, he was making something happen. “I was in Athens in August, and there was   group of scouts that day they scrimmaged, and I was busting at the seams to offer him that day. He was a guy that exited me and I was bummed to lose him.” Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy DawgNation Senior Bowl coverage Georgia OLB D’Andre Walker late scratch from Senior Bowl The post WATCH: Senior Bowl director misses ‘disruptive’ Georgia football OLB D’Andre Walker appeared first on DawgNation.

  • A man identified by authorities Tuesday as the suspect in the fatal shooting of a teenager at a suburban Chicago mall was previously convicted of armed robbery and had been an acquaintance of the victim. Orland Park Police identified the suspect as 19-year-old parolee Jakharr Williams of University Park. The department said in a news release that Williams, who fled after the shooting and has not been arrested, should be considered armed and dangerous. Police said Williams and 18-year-old Javon Britten of Richton Park were arguing in a food court at Orland Square Mall Monday when Williams allegedly pulled out a handgun and fired several shots. Britten was struck and a bystander's leg was grazed by a bullet. Police said Britten staggered to a nearby clothing store, where he collapsed. He was pronounced dead at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn a short time later. According to the Illinois Department of Corrections website and Orland Park Police, Williams was convicted of armed robbery in 2017, and that he served a little more than a year in prison before he was released in June last year. Orland Park is about 20 miles (32 kilometers) southwest of Chicago.
  • In the legal equivalent of a Hail Mary pass, two New Orleans Saints season ticket holders have asked a judge to reverse the result of the NFC championship game that sent the Los Angeles Rams to the Super Bowl — or order a do-over. Tuesday's state court filing says NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell should implement a league rule governing 'extraordinarily unfair acts.' Remedies include reversal of a game's result or the rescheduling of a game — in its entirety or from the point when the act occurred. At issue is the failure of officials to call interference or roughness penalties when a Rams player leveled a Saints receiver with a helmet-to-helmet hit at a crucial point in Sunday's game. The NFL hasn't yet responded. A hearing is scheduled Monday.
  • A man is under arrest in Utah after police say he posted on Facebook about 'killing as many girls as I see' the same weekend that Women's Marches were held around the U.S. Christopher W. Cleary, 27, wrote he wanted to be 'the next mass shooter,' because he had never had a girlfriend and he was still a virgin, according to jail documents filed by police in the city of Provo. He wanted to 'make it right' with women who had turned him down and also said 'there's nothing more dangerous than a man ready to die,' the documents said. Cleary is from Denver and Colorado police on Saturday contacted officers in Provo, south of Salt Lake City, where Cleary had checked into an AirBnB rental a day earlier. With help from the FBI, officers tracked Cleary to a restaurant and arrested him on suspicion of a felony threat of terrorism charge. The posts did not mention the marches but investigators were concerned because they were happening that day in Provo and Salt Lake City, along with dozens of other cities, the documents said. Cleary acknowledged making the posts, but said he deleted them after receiving threats in response, police said. He told investigators he had an impulse-control disorder and was suicidal. Colorado authorities said Cleary is on probation after stalking and threatening women there, according to Utah police documents. He was being held without bail in Utah, and authorities were expected to seek his extradition to Colorado. No attorney or publicly listed phone number was immediately available for Cleary.
  • Country singer John Berry revealed he is battling tonsil cancer, Billboard reported Tuesday. Berry, 59, announced the cancer in a video he recorded with his wife, Robin Berry, and posted to his Facebook page.  “We started off this year with a hiccup, and we want to tell you a little bit about that,” John Berry said in the video.  It is not the first time Berry has experienced a medical scare. On the day his song “Your Love Amazes Me” hit No. 1 in 1994, Berry had surgery to remove a benign brain tumor, Billboard reported. Berry said he became aware of his latest health issue in November before his latest tour, the magazine reported.“I had a little catch in my throat, it felt like, it felt exactly like, the skin of a Spanish peanut was stuck in my throat,” Berry said in the video.  After examining his tonsils Berry noticed they were swollen. Despite going to a doctor and receiving steroids and antibiotics, the problem persisted, Berry said. He completed his tour and then saw a doctor Jan. 4, Rolling Stone reported. A CT scan revealed two tumors in his tonsils, so he had surgery to remove them, the magazine reported. After receiving biopsy results, doctors told Berry he had tonsil cancer. Berry will begin a five-week chemotherapy and radiation treatment plan this week, Rolling Stone reported. “This particular cancer is one of the most highly treatable, and has an incredible cure rate,” Berry said in his video. According to his website, Berry had 20 singles on the country charts during the 1990s, six of which were Top 5 songs. He won a Grammy Award in 1996 for his participation in “Amazing Grace: A Country Salute to Gospel, Vol. 1.”
  • Atlanta police are investigating a sexual assault at Opera nightclub after video of the incident was posted on Facebook.  >> Read more trending news Officer Jarius Daugherty said the Atlanta Police Department began receiving calls from people who had seen the assault on a Facebook Live video early Sunday morning. The police department has opened an investigation into the incident at the club on Crescent Avenue in Midtown. The video “appears to show a woman being sexually assaulted in a local nightclub,” Daugherty told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.  Police have not released details on the alleged assault, but the woman filed a police report on the crime. It is the policy of the AJC to not name victims of sexual crimes. According to WSB-TV, the victim was celebrating her birthday Saturday at the popular Midtown nightclub when she was sexually assaulted. The woman told police someone put drugs in her drink and then sexually assaulted her on the dance floor, WSB-TV reported. The victim, who was already streaming her celebration on Facebook Live, captured the attack as it happened and continued to stream the video. According to media reports, the woman is heard in the video screaming for help. Video of the sexual assault has since been removed from Facebook. The woman later posted a video saying she is OK, WSB-TV reported.  In a statement posted to Facebook and Twitter, Opera nightclub managers said they are cooperating with the investigation.  “At this time we have met with the Atlanta Police Department and have provided them with everything they have requested,” read the statement posted Sunday. “We will continue to aid and support their investigation in any way we can.”
