Georgia breaks 7-round NFL draft record for most players selected
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.
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.
