ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - The Georgia Bulldogs probably won't be
champions of the 2010 NFL draft and coach Mark Richt hopes his team
is judged by more than high draft picks.

Richt is looking to replace quarterback Matthew Stafford, the
No. 1 pick in this year's draft, and tailback Knowshon Moreno, also
a first-round pick.

Joe Cox, a fifth-year senior, is replacing Stafford. Richt may
rotate as many as three tailbacks, including sophomore Caleb King.

Richt said Cox was a team leader even as a backup and has been
embraced by the players as the starter. He played in only three
games last season and has never attempted more than 13 passes in a
game.
