Georgia football got a huge boost when center Sedrick Van Pran announced his decision to pass-up the NFL draft and return for his senior season.
Van Pran is the unquestioned leader on a Bulldogs offensive line that is coming off of a stellar 2021 season in which the unit was named a finalist for the Joe Moore Award, given to the best offensive line in the country.
Georgia allowed only nine sacks in 15 games last season and Van Pran didn’t allow a single sack in over 800 snaps.
NFL Draft Buzz currently lists Van Pran as the No. 1 center prospect in the 2024 NFL draft.
Van Pran was ranked No. 7 overall by College Football News in their list of the top-32 draft prospects.
Van Pran’s return is important as the Bulldogs try and replace offensive tackles Broderick Jones (Pittsburgh Steelers) and Warren McClendon (L.A. Rams).
