The 2022 college football season came to a close with the Georgia Bulldogs blowing out the TCU Horned Frogs in the CFP Championship Game. The focus now turns to the NFL Draft for a number of players from that game and some have already announced they are heading to the NFL, like defensive tackle Jalen Carter.
The CFP Championship Game was the last chance for some of these players to put something on tape that NFL teams can take a look at as they begin the process of evaluating this year’s class. On Monday night, there were five players who helped their draft stock.

There is no denying that Stetson Bennet put together an impressive final season with Georgia and seemed to save his best games for the College Football Playoffs.
In the game against Ohio State, he threw for 398 passing yards with three touchdowns and one interception. He followed that game up with 304 passing yards and 6 passing touchdowns against TCU before being taken out of the game with the outcome decided early.
It is unlikely that Bennett becomes a top prospect among quarterbacks but he has certainly shown enough for teams to use a Day 3 pick and hope he can develop into a quality backup in the NFL.
