Some Georgia underclassmen exited Mercedes-Benz Stadium early Tuesday morning with some NFL draft decisions to make or at least publicly reveal. Inside linebacker Roquan Smith and cornerback Deandre Baker, both juniors, didn’t say whether they will stay or go. Smith is widely viewed as a first round draft pick. The Butkus Award winner led Georgia with 13 tackles in the 26-23 overtime loss to Alabama in the national championship game. He finished the season leading the team with 137 tackles and 6 1/2 sacks. “I haven’t even thought about anything like that,” Smith said. “It’s not about me right now. It’s moreso about these guys and everything they’ve been through.” The NFL draft deadline for underclassmen is Jan. 15.
