ATHENS, Ga. -- Sure, Orson Charles wants to be the first tight end selected in the upcoming NFL draft, but the former Georgia standout said his overall goal is simple.
"You never know how the draft is going to work out," said Charles, who left UGA after being named a John Mackey Award finalist as a junior. "Two tight ends could go in the first round. Two tight ends could go in the second round. I just want a job, to tell the truth. That's my whole motto right now is I just want a job."
That shouldn't be a problem for Charles, considering that every draft evaluation service ranks him between first and third among the top tight ends -- including ESPN, which rates him as the No. 3 tight end and No. 49 overall prospect.
Twelve former Bulldogs attempted to put forth their most draft-worthy efforts Monday at UGA's pro day, hoping to wow 46 scouts and team personnel from 30 NFL teams.
