If ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. ends up being correct in his latest mock draft predictions, the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft is going to be a very, very good day for the Georgia football program.
The NFL draft guru has five Bulldogs coming off the board in the first 32 selections, which would shatter the former school record of three first-rounders.
Travon Walker is expected to be the first Bulldog off the board, with Kiper Jr. slotting him in with the No. 3 overall pick to the Houston Texans. There have been rumblings that Walker could even go first overall to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Walker stole the show at the NFL combine, matching some of the freaky things he did during his time at Georgia.
