Curran Ponders NFL Future

Rennie Curran knew he would have some tough decisions to make.

ATHENS – With the season winding down and the hype surrounding next year's top NFL draft picks heating up, Rennie Curran knew he would have some tough decisions to make.

The junior linebacker is second in the SEC in tackles and is on pace for his second straight 100-tackle season at Georgia, and many draft services see him as a potential early draft choice. So from family and friends to fans who see him on campus, he's already being hounded about his future.

"That's one thing people always want to know," Curran said. "They see you in that position and you're ranked high and having a good season, and they want to know."

Curran said Matthew Stafford and Knowshon Moreno, teammates last season who were both selected in the first round of the 2009 NFL draft, set a nice template for how to handle things, and that's a path Curran plans to follow.

"Knowshon and Stafford, I watched them go through the same thing, and they did a good job handling it," Curran said. "Right now, I'm just focused on the season, honestly. It crosses my mind just like it would anybody else who was in the situation I'm in, but it's a good situation to be in and have to think about. But for the most part, I'm just focused on what got me here, which is working hard and finishing strong, because that's all I really feel like matters."
