Tuesday, February 28
Former UGA tight end Orson Charles put on a show with his bench press but declined to do many other drills in Indianapolis.
Here's a rundown of how Georgia fared in workouts at this year's NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, which ends today.

Justin Anderson, OL
40-Yard Dash: 5.31
Bench Press: 32
Vertical Jump: 27 in
Broad Jump: 101 in
20-yard shuttle: 4.99
"He has some talent and could be a late-round selection to a team seeking depth on the offensive line."
Brandon Boykin, DB
Boykin will not work out today in Indianapolis or at next week's UGA Pro Day because of a leg fracture suffered in the Senior Bowl. The AJC's D. Orlando Ledbetter has more from Boykin at the Combine here.

"He is an intriguing prospect for teams who want to develop his technique and are willing to overlook his stature. He has value as a nickel corner immediately and should be selected near the middle of the third round."
Drew Butler, P
"Butler is likely the top punting prospect in this year's draft. ... An athlete and not a liability in coverage, he has late-round value to a team that needs a punter."
Orson Charles, TE
Bench Press: 35
Charles impressed in the bench press, producing eight more reps than any other tight end. But a puzzling decision not to run the 40-yard dash or do the vertical or broad jumps left Charles with a bit of an incomplete grade in Indy. He may be the top tight end on the board, but it's not a very attractive board at that position this year.
"If he can put on a little bit more size to increase the effectiveness of a mismatch running against linebackers in the short game, it's likely he could be drafted as early as the third round."
Cordy Glenn, OL
40-Yard Dash: 5.15
Bench Press: 31
Vertical Jump: 23.5 in
Broad Jump: 93 in
20-yard shuttle: 5.00
"The fact that many teams will want to use him at guard and could have him on the roster for variable depth early is a big reason why he could go as early as the 3rd round in this year's draft."
Ben Jones, C
40-Yard Dash: 5.44
Bench Press: 29
Vertical Jump: 30.5 in
Broad Jump: 105 in
20-yard shuttle: 4.74
The cerebral aspect of the game was where Jones most impressed the pro teams this week. At least that's what we're hearing.
"He is a savvy player who doesn't have great athletic ability but understands angles when blocking and plays to his strengths. He is a reliable backup option early on and worthy of a sixth-round pick."
DeAngelo Tyson, DL
No workout numbers were available for Tyson, who was recovering from an ankle injury as was to be limited in Indy.
"If he can display greater athletic ability and speed than he showed on film throughout his collegiate career, look for him to be a possible late riser and be selected in the sixth or seventh round come April."
Blair Walsh, K
"Can consistently put the ball in the end zone on kickoffs and has been reliable enough that a team with a need may select him to keep him off the free agent market."
ON THE AGENDA
Georgia's baseball team looks to go to 8-0 by hosting Savannah State at 6 p.m. tonight.
