After having just two players selected in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft, the Bulldogs have upped that number to four in the second and third rounds.

Ladd McConkey kicked things off for the Bulldogs in round two going 34th overall to the Chargers who traded up to grab the National Champion receiver. McConkey will be an immediate starter in LA with no solid wide receivers lined up for Justin Herbert. The Herbert-McConkey connection could surprise the rest of the NFL.

The next Bulldog to come off the board was Kamari Lassiter. There was concern about Lassiter in pre-draft events on whether or not he would be successful in the league, but the Houston Texans chose to take a chance on the cornerback. Lassiter had an amazing career at Georgia and if he can transfer that talent to the pros, he could be a homerun pick for the Texans.

Javon Bullard rounded out the second round for former Georgia players being selected by the Green Bay Packers with the 58th pick. Bullard was just the second safety to come off the board, but this is a great pick for the Packers who desperately need help in their secondary. Bullard can also be flexible in the secondary playing the safety position, nickel, or even as a split safety. Bullard can thrive in a Packers defense that had just seven interceptions in 2023.

Tykee Smith rounded out the Bulldogs' day two in the draft going in the third round to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the 92nd pick. With Antoine Winfield Jr. and Jordan Whitehead on the field next season, Smith will have time to develop and grow into a starting role. With the defensive mind that head coach Todd Bowles has, Tampa Bay is a great place for Smith to grow.

With six players selected so far, there is still room for more players to be taken on day three. Just because a player is taken on day three doesn't mean they are any worse than other players, sometimes day three picks turn out to be Hall of Famers, so be patient Georgia fans.
