Vance Cuff over Kris Durham?

So, the National Football League has extended invites to the annual combine in Indianapolis. There are 8 players from Georgia who received invites: AJ Green, Justin Houston, Clint Boling, Josh Davis, Demarcus Dobbs, Akeem Dent, Shaun Chapas and...wait for it...Vance Cuff!


Vance Cuff, who was repeatedly burned at the corner position last season received an invite to the combine but kris Durham and Darryl Gamble did not. What are these guys thinking? Gamble may not be the best player in the world, but he is much more serviceable than Vance Cuff.

And Durham failing to get an invite is total BS. After missing the entire 2009 season with a broken collar bone, Durham returned to Georgia in 2010 and finished second on the team with 659 yards receiving. While he may not have the statistics of other receivers in the draft, his ability to make big catches combined with his 6'5'' frame means someone will most likely take a chance on him at the pro level. Plus, the "slow white guy" doesn't apply to Durham. Just ask the Georgia Tech secondary. Here's a look at Durham's highlights from this season:

I wish Vance Cuff luck at the Combine, but Gamble or Durham is much more deserving of that spot.

Love Durham. He's a Damn Good Dawg and would make a great Falcon!

Couldn't agree more, would love to Falcons to use a last day draft choice on him. Could be a great 3rd/4th wr for them.

one of the best receivers to ever play at UGA. He's got great hands, runs great routs, and is extremely fast, but doesn't get credit for it because of his skin color. Amanda Vanderpool
