Bleacher Report mock NFL draft includes 8 former Georgia players


Following the NFL scouting combine, which concluded on Monday, Bleacher Report released a full seven-round mock draft for April’s upcoming NFL draft.

According to Bleacher Report, eight Bulldogs will be taken in this year’s draft. If the projection holds true, it will mark the fifth time in Georgia history that at least eight players were selected in a draft year (2013, 2002, 1964, 1962). In 1962 and 1964, players were drafted by both the NFL and AFL.

Below is a list of where Bleacher Report foresees the eight Bulldogs being drafted:

Roquan Smith, linebacker: First Round (No. 9) to San Francisco 49ers

Isaiah Wynn, offensive guard: First Round (No. 19) to Dallas Cowboys

Sony Michel, running back: Second Round (No. 36) to Indianapolis Colts

Lorenzo Carter, linebacker: Second Round (No. 37) to New York Jets

Trenton Thompson, defensive tackle: Fourth Round (No. 103) to Houston Texans

Nick Chubb, running back: Fourth Round (No. 107) to New York Jets

Davin Bellamy, linebacker: Fourth Round (No. 110) to Oakland Raiders

Dominick Sanders, safety: Fifth Round (No. 168) Seattle Seahawks

This draft could also mark the first time Georgia has had more than seven players drafted before the fifth round.
