About That Talent Advantage For Georgia vs Boise State

Many people, myself included, thought UGA had much more talent than Boise State just that the Broncos are better coached and play more as a team.

Turns out Chris Petersen's team has a quite a bit of talent in the eyes of the NFL.

Boise State checks in with 10 players on this list of the top 750 NFL Draft Prospects for 2012.

Not bad for a program that has not ranked a class in the Rivals top 50 once in the last five years. You can check out the next class of not highly rated Bronco prospects here.

Georgia has 12 prospects listed with offensive lineman Cordy Glenn the highest rated at 20th.

The Bulldogs come in tied for fifth on the list with Clemson and Missouri. Miami and Wisconsin have the most players at 15 with Alabama and Virginia Tech tying for third with 13 a piece.

The defending national champion Auburn Tigers have just four illustrating how much talent was lost from a year ago, but also how young this team is.

Maybe the biggest surprise on the list was Duke with seven players. However, the Blue Devils talent was not able to overcome FCS opponent Richmond on Saturday.

Georgia Tech checks in with just four players, the highest being CB Michael Peterson at #580 followed by DE Jason Peters at #581. This lack of experienced, NFL ready talent is probably why Vegas pegged the Yellow Jackets for just six wins this season.
