Georgia’s ‘Big Ben’ Cleveland, even bigger, faster and stronger now

ATHENS — Ben Cleveland didn’t lead off any All-American or Outland Trophy lists during his time at Georgia, but the departing offensive lineman leaves a legacy as one of the most powerful and popular players in Bulldogs’ history.

The 6-foot-6, 354-pound Cleveland was as consistent and reliable as any SEC offensive lineman over the course of his career at UGA, with very few flags thrown in his direction and several short-yardage runs aimed in his direction.

Cleveland, from Stephens County High School in Toccoa, Ga., has recently been projected as a third-round pick in the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft per the NFL Draft Bible.

“I’ve been working out focusing on bigger, faster and stronger,” said Cleveland, who is on record at taking aim at the NFL combine bench press record of 49 repetitions of 225 pounds.
