Georgia broke a school record during the 2021 NFL draft when it had nine Bulldogs selected into the league, breaking its previous record of eight players (2002, 2013).

This year, Georgia will look to break that record again and send double-digit players into the NFL.

CBS Sports recently released its 2022 NFL mock draft and had four Georgia Bulldogs go in the first round.
