UGA Football: Broncos Draft McKenzie In Fifth Round

April 29, 2017

PHILADELPHIA — Georgia junior wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie was selected in the NFL Draft’s 5th round by the Denver Broncos with the 172nd overall pick on Saturday afternoon.

McKenzie, a native of Miami, Fla., is the 315th Georgia player taken in the NFL Draft’s history. The Broncos have now taken 13 Bulldogs since selecting Frank Richter in 1967. The last Georgia player drafted by Denver before McKenzie was fellow wide receiver Tavarres King in 2013, who was also selected in the 5th round.

Playing in all 13 games in 2016, McKenzie led the team with 44 catches for 633 yards and seven touchdowns. He was also Georgia’s fourth-leading rusher with 134 yards on 19 carries. He is the school record holder in career punt return touchdowns (5) and overall kick return TDs (6), having set both records in the Louisiana game with an 82-yard punt return touchdown.

Georgia will face the winner of the matchup between No. 1 seed Texas A&M and No. 5 seed Mississippi State.

“I am so proud of our team,” head coach Manuel Diaz said. “Florida came out really strong in singles after we won the doubles point, and our guys showed a lot of fight. It was a very physical match and was really the first time this season we have faced this kind of hot weather. It took a lot out of us, but we just fought through it and were able to hold off Florida at crucial times during the match.”

UGA Football: Details of UGA/Florida Game Remaining in Jacksonville

It’s a topic discussed year after year by Dawg fans everywhere.

Some like the tradition of the “World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party”. They don’t see it as being a problem that UGA loses a home game every two years. They love the atmosphere, the travel to Jacksonville. Some make it a week long vacation.

Well, there’s bad news for the second group. The game is set to be in Jacksonville for the forseeable future. Check out the details:
