Pair of Georgia Bulldogs ranked among the best NFL free agents

Former Georgia Bulldogs outside linebacker Leonard Floyd ranks as the No. 70 NFL free agent available. Floyd, who spent this past season with the Buffalo Bills, is primarily a pass rush specialist. He is productive and is a good player to have when trying to hunt down mobile quarterbacks.

“It was mystifying that it took most of last offseason for Floyd to land a job, and then he finished the 2023 campaign with 10.5 sacks as a rotational player. Same as he ever was,” said NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal.

Former Philadelphia Eagles running back D’Andre Swift, a former Georgia standout, is considered the No. 72 NFL free agent on the market. Swift accumulated 1,049 rushing yards and five touchdowns last season. This is a deep free agent class at the running back position, but Swift can still be a major contributor for any NFL team.

“Swift showed with the Eagles in 2023 to be a tougher power runner with more durability than he ever was in Detroit,” said Rosenthal.

Swift and Floyd are among the 13 Georgia Bulldogs that are scheduled to become free agents. NFL free agency starts on March 11. Players can begin officially signing with NFL teams on March 13.
