The Dawgs had six players taken during the three-day draft. It marked the second time in three years that six Bulldogs were drafted. UGA tied for 4th overall in the nation for the most players picked in the draft. They tied LSU for most in the conference this year. For the 12th time in the past 14 seasons, and fifth year in a row, the Southeastern Conference had the most players selected in the NFL draft with a total of 38 players. Is there any doubt that the SEC is the toughest conference in college football?
The newest pro players from UGA are as follows:
A.J Green – 4th overall pick to the Cincinnati Bengals
Justin Houston – 3rd round, 70th overall pick to the Kansas City Chiefs
Akeem Dent – 3rd round, 91st overall pick to the Atlanta Falcons
Clint Boling – 4th round, 101st overall pick to the Cincinnati Bengals
Kris Durham – 4th round, 107th overall pick to the Seattle Seahawks
Shaun Chapas – 7th round, 220th overall pick to the Dallas Cowboys
These guys will join the 41 other former Dawgs that are currently active in the NFL.
