The Georgia Bulldogs are two months removed from their first national championship in over 40 years, and the hype regarding their 2022 draft class is for real. After the 2019 season, LSU sent a bevy of prospects to the league; Alabama did it last year as well; now, the Dawgs are up, and they haven’t disappointed through the draft process.

The NFL Combine was dominated by UGA players, and scouts saw all they needed to see in Indy. “The Georgia Bulldogs won a national championship,” Daniel Jeremiah said. “I think they just won a combine championship this evening with what they did. Jordan Davis, you’re not supposed to be 340 pounds and move at this speed. Never seen anything like it before.”

Georgia led all college programs with 14 invitees, and they have a real chance to match the draft record for first-round picks, taking the record from the 2020 Alabama and 2004 Miami teams that sent six first-rounders to the league. Every other headline had a UGA prospect mentioned.

Lewis Cine did wonders for his draft stock, so much so that draft pundits like Jim Nagy suggest he could be the first safety off the board. Surprising, considering Kyle Hamilton is some scouts’ top prospect regardless of position.

Then there is the freak of nature, Jordan Davis, who put everyone on notice at 341 pounds with a 4.78-second time in the 40-yard dash, 32-inch vertical leap, and a 10-foot-3 broad jump. This sparked many on Twitter to call for the Falcons to draft him at 8.

Travon Walker is another who solidified his place as one of the best at his position after posting a 4.51-second 40-yard dash, a 35.5-inch vertical, and a 6.89-second three-cone drill. Walker is firmly in the fold for the Falcons at 8. Running backs James Cook and Zamir White as well as wide receiver George Pickens also dazzled with their 40 times.

Regardless of your team’s needs, this UGA class has something for everyone.
