The 2015 NFL Draft was held in Chicago, Il. over the weekend, spanning from Thursday night until Saturday evening. There were nine former Bulldogs who had thrown their names on the list with hundreds of other draft hopefuls.

This year’s NFL Draft saw five Georgia Bulldogs hear their names called in a realization of their lifelong dreams, and there were some tears of joy and sighs of relief after some were chosen. Here’s a breakdown of who was selected and who has been signed thus far as an undrafted free agent.

Todd Gurley, Running Back – St. Louis Rams, Round 1, Pick 10
Chris Conley, Wide Receiver – Kansas City Chiefs, Round 3, Pick 12 (76th overall)
Ramik Wilson, Linebacker – Kansas City Chiefs, Round 4, Pick 19 (118th overall)
Damian Swann, Defensive Back – New Orleans Saints, Round 5, Pick 31 (167th overall)
Amarlo Herrera, Linebacker – Indianapolis Colts, Round 6, Pick 31 (207th overall)

In addition to the five players drafted, center David Andrews has been signed as an undrafted free agent with the New England Patriots, and quarterback Hutson Mason has been given a tryout with the Miami Dolphins.

Andrews stands a good shot in a least making the Patriots practice squad. He has the work ethic and versatility that Bill Belichick loves, and we all know how underrated he’s been as an offensive linemen (in particular center) during his three years of starting for the Bulldogs.

Mason’s odds of making the Dolphins are a bit more of a longshot. It’s possible they would like to have him as a practice squad player and/or emergency quarterback, but right now Miami already has four quarterbacks on their roster, and Ryan Tannehill is firmly in control of the starting job.

The only former Bulldogs yet to be signed or given a tryout are defensive end Ray Drew, and safety Corey Moore. It would seem likely that Drew will eventually get a call (are you listening, Atlanta Falcons?).

Interesting to note that all three players who accompanied Mark Richt to the SEC Media days in 2014 (Gurley, Wilson and Conley) were all drafted.

UPDATE: Ray Drew has been signed as an undrafted free agent with the Miami Dolphins
