The Georgia Bulldogs will have to replace two star running backs next year, as seniors Nick Chubb and Sony Michel will be off to the NFL.
They worked so well together in college, but they probably won’t end up on the same pro team, so it begs the question — which Georgia back will have the best NFL career?
Legendary Georgia running back and NFL Hall of Famer Terrell Davis joined “Tiki + Tierney” on Tuesday afternoon to make his pick. As you can see in the video below, shared by @CBSSportsNet on Twitter, he chose Michel:

“I think that’s probably the biggest advantage Sony has, is that out of the backfield, even out wide, his pass-catching ability is probably going to lead him to be projected to be a better pro,” Davis said. “But Nick Chubb is no slouch. He’s not a bad guy — he can do some of the same things. But Sony’s more like Alvin Kamara, but he’s bigger and thicker than people think he is. He can run between the tackles.”
Both players are sure to hear their names called at the 2018 NFL Draft in April, but who goes higher, and who has a better professional career, still remains to be seen.
