Elijah Holyfield declares for the 2019 NFL Draft as the fourth Bulldog to forgo senior season

The Telegraph

Georgia running back Elijah Holyfield is the latest Bulldog to declare for the NFL Draft.

Holyfield, who received his first full workload in 2018 splitting carries with sophomore D’Andre Swift, recorded over 1,000 yards on the season and eclipsed the mark against Texas on Tuesday. He and Swift both ran for over 1,000 yards in a season where Georgia had more success in the run game.

Mecole Hardman, Riley Ridley and Isaac Nauta were the others to publicly share their intentions Friday.

“I would like to take this time to officially declare for the NFL Draft,” Holyfield said in a graphic released on Twitter. “I go forward, while always reflecting on my time in Athens, knowing I will work tirelessly to make Dawg Nation proud. No matter where my playing career may lead me, I will always be a GA boy.”

As the hours pass, Georgia players are leaving the program like doorbusters on a day-after Thanksgiving sale. Maybe it’s just the usual Friday news dump, but this is to massive proportions.
