When a number of draft eligible players decided to return to UGA for the 2012 season, Georgia was left underrepresented in this year's draft. Through the first three rounds only guard/tackle Cordy Glenn has been selected.
Georgia has always been a prolific producer of NFL talent, but it appears that this year is going to be a down year for the Dawgs. With that being said, fans can still expect C Ben Jones, CB Brandon Boykin, and TE Orson Charles to get drafted somewhere in the last four rounds on Saturday.
With just four drafted players (hopefully), this would be the least successful draft for the Bulldogs since 2008. There were just four players taken that year and the highest was selected in the fifth round. In 2011 the Bulldogs had six players taken (three in the first three rounds). Since 2000, Georgia has had 67 players drafted into the NFL and is considered one of the top national college programs for NFL talent. Then again, it's a bad year for some other big programs. Neither Texas, Florida, nor Florida State have had a player drafted in the first three rounds of the 2012 Draft.

Two more rounds in the books and Buffalo just continues to diligently address their needs with quality in the 2012 Draft.
