Georgia DB Mark Webb shares 2021 season plans
Mark Webb’s Georgia career is coming to a close. The senior defensive back officially declared for the 2021 NFL Draft on Thursday night.
Webb shared a note via his Twitter account:
“First and foremost, I would like to take this opportunity to thank God for the many blessings he has given me throughout my life. One of my biggest blessings is the opportunity to play the game that I love, in a place that I love, surrounded by the people that I love.
“I would like to say thank you to my mother and father, and all of my family members for their unending support and for their direction through my football career and life thus far. To all of my coaches from little league, high school and college, thank you for building me into the football player and young man that I am today.
“Coach Kirby and staff, thank you for your support on and off the field the last four years! I would also like to thank the staff at Rankin for helping me pursue my degree and helping through this process!
“With that being said I would like to announce that I will be declaring for the 2021 NFL Draft!”
The NCAA is allowing all players the ability to return in 2021 with the same eligibility as 2020, which meant Webb had a decision to make like other seniors. He played in eight of UGA’s 10 games in 2020, recording 21 total tackles, including a career-high nine against Mississippi State, this season along with 2 pass breakups and an interception.
