The No. 5 ranked Georgia Bulldogs take on the No. 15 ranked Texas Longhorns in the 85th Sugar Bowl to open 2019, something of a consolation for Georgia after losing to Alabama in the SEC Conference title game a few weeks ago. One of the players I will be keeping an eye is Bulldogs tight end Isaac Nauta, who’ll wear 18. He’s not a surefire lock to come out in the 2019 NFL Draft, as he is only a junior. But Nauta has been discussing his future with “coaches, teammates and family members,” according to the Times Free Press. The Sugar Bowl may be his college swansong. Nauta had his pick of elite programmes to choose from after his high school days came to an end. Teams like Auburn, Oklahoma State, and TCU were said to have promised to create positions to allow him to play immediately. But a combination of a love of the state of Georgia and a desire to play in a TE-friendly offense led him to commit to the Bulldogs.
