5 Georgia Bulldogs projected to go in first round of 2023 NFL draft

The Georgia Bulldogs took over the 2022 NFL draft. Could Georgia have another spectacular draft in the future?

Draftwire projects that five Georgia Bulldogs will go in the first round of the 2023 NFL draft.

Draftwire updated its 2023 NFL draft projections following the first several weeks of the college football season.

Draftwire thinks that no Georgia players will be selected in the second round of its latest mock draft.

However, Georgia makes up for it with an excellent first round.

Once again, several University of Georgia defenders are expected to be selected in the first round of the draft.

How many UGA defenders does Draftwire think will be selected in the first round of the 2023 NFL draft?

28. Tight end Darnell Washington Draftwire projects that the Cincinnati Bengals will draft Georgia Bulldog star Darnell Washington late in the first round of the 2023 NFL draft.

20. Offensive tackle Broderick Jones Draftwire thinks the Chargers would take Broderick Jones in the first round of the draft. Former Georgia standout Jamaree Salyer is currently the Chargers’ starting left tackle due to an injury. Salyer is actually playing very well despite being a rookie.

No. 13 Cornerback Kelee Ringo Not many college football teams have been throwing at Kelee Ringo to start the 2022 season. Ringo, the hero from the national championship, is projected to head to the New York Jets, per Draftwire.

No. 11 Defensive end Nolan Smith The Seattle Seahawks are projected to pick Nolan Smith. Smith is an excellent run defender and is a former five-star recruit.

No. 5 Defensive tackle Jalen Carter Carter is currently recovering from a minor knee injury, but is expected to return soon. The junior defensive tackle is disruptive and an excellent pass rusher. 

No. 5 Defensive tackle Jalen Carter Draftwire thinks the Seahawks will pick him early in the 2023 NFL draft. It would be awesome to see Carter play on the same NFL team with Nolan Smith.
