Georgia produced 15 picks in the 2022 NFL Draft, breaking the record for the highest number of players selected from one school in a seven-round draft.

The Bulldogs tied the modern record (14) in the sixth round when the Los Angeles Rams took Derion Kendrick at No. 212. They broke it one pick later when the Atlanta Falcons chose John FitzPatrick.

Ohio State and LSU previously shared the record. The Buckeyes produced 14 picks in the 2004 NFL Draft, while the Tigers tied the mark in 2020. Texas still holds the all-time record, as 17 Longhorns were selected in 1984 when the draft lasted 12 rounds.
