Georgia's A.J. Green didn't need the first four games of the season to quickly remind everyone of his rank among wide receivers in college football.  The seven catch, 119 yard, two touchdown performance (particularly this catch) in the Bulldogs losing effort against Colorado is just another set of highlights to add to Green's expanding NFL reel.  While it has not been set in stone that Green would enter the NFL Draft as soon as he is eligible, it has been widely assumed to be the case.

But Green claims that decision has not been made.  Yesterday during Georgia's media availability Green touched on the issue of leaving early and answered questions as to whether or not the suspension has had any effect on that decision
“I don’t know yet. But I do feel like I owe some of the fans some more stuff, just missing those four games. So I don’t know,” Green said. “Like I said, I’m gonna sit down with my family whenever the time comes and make the best decision for me.”
That's all nice and everything A.J., but you are not really fooling anyone.  For someone who has already shown an interest in capitalizing financially on his all-star status, there will be no surprises when Green declares for the NFL Draft following the season.  Green is considered by most to be the top wide receiver in a draft class that is significantly thin at the position.  For NF teams needing a playmaker that can have an immediate impact, Green will be their prize.
