"I'm obviously very disappointed," said Georgia coach Mark Richt in a statement. "The important thing for our team is to turn all our attention toward preparation to Missouri."

Just before the 2013 college football season, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was investigated when there were reports that surfaced indicating that he received money for signing autographs.
There was no concrete evidence that Manziel did anything wrong, but the school suspended him for the first half of the season opener against Rice University. Just like Green, Manziel was still drafted in the first round and is now a member of the Cleveland Browns.

(That's a debate for another day).
In terms of his draft stock, I don't believe it will be negatively impacted because Manziel, Green and countless other former football players didn't experience a negative impact when they were investigated by the NCAA over similar circumstances.

In the meantime, we'll have to wait and see how this investigation plays out. If more evidence comes out against Gurley and he is suspended for more games, Georgia's chances at winning the SEC and Gurley's magical Heisman season, will likely be over.
