What an all-UGA NFL team would look like for 2022 season

·4 min read

The Georgia Bulldogs broke the record for most players selected in the NFL draft when they had 15 players taken during April’s event.

After the historic draft, Georgia now has 59 players on NFL teams, meaning it has more than enough to fill an entire 53-man roster.

With all these fresh faces entering the league, it got us wondering….what would an all-UGA NFL team look like? Well, it would be loaded with talent, especially at the linebacker position, where Roquan Smith would lead a ferocious defense that’s littered with first-round draft picks. On offense, it would be Matthew Stafford and Nick Chubb’s team, with a really solid line in front of them.

There’s a few guys you may be surprised to see are not on this list, and that’s because they are currently not on an NFL roster. Some of those names include safeties Shawn Williams and Maurice Smith, wide receiver Riley Ridley, tight end Isaac Nauta, and linebacker Davin Bellamy (USFL).

Here’s a look at what an all-UGA NFL team would look like:
