There is no doubt what tops the Christmas wish list for Georgia football fans.

They want to see players like quarterback Matthew Stafford, running back Knowshon Moreno and defensive back Asher Allen return for another season for the Bulldogs.

The NFL draft is something that is going to be discussed this Christmas for Matthew Stafford and his family.

The Georgia quarterback is projected by some to be a first round pick in April maybe even the top overall pick in the draft.

Stafford says the choiceis going to be difficult because he has never had to make such a big decision.

He admits he knows which way he is leaning but says the final decision will not be made until after the Capital One Bowl.

Matthew Stafford "there is a lot of time between now and then in that decision process. There is a lot of time for change and to see some new options may be and to see if that is really what I want to do."

Stafford, Knowshon Moreno, Asher Allen, Geno Atkins and Reshard Jones have all request the NFL scouting service to rate their draft prospects should they come out.

Georgia returns to practice for the Cap One Bowl Friday night in Orlando.
