Georgia in the NFL Draft

| No TrackBacks

It was a big weekend for the Bulldogs as the NFL Draft came and went, with SEVEN Georgia players getting taken. That marked the first time since '06 that UGA had seven players drafted, while the total was the second highest among the 12 SEC schools. Overall, the Southeastern Conference led the way with 42 selections (the sixth year in a row that was the case). All 12 schools had at least one player drafted.

Recapping the Georgia picks: Georgia offensive lineman Cordy Glenn was selected in the Second Round of the 2012 NFL Draft on Friday night in New York, selected by the Buffalo Bills with the 41st overall pick as the first three rounds wrapped up on Friday.

Behind Cordy, center Ben Jones, tight end Orson Charles and cornerback/return specialist Brandon Boykin were all selected in the fourth round. Kicker Blair Walsh was picked in the sixth round while offensive lineman Justin Anderson and defensive end DeAngelo Tyson were chosen in the seventh.

Congrats to all of them as they begin their professional careers and continue to represent the University of Georgia and Bulldog Nation well!
