The Georgia Bulldogs have had a first-round draft pick in six straight NFL drafts. In fact, the Dawgs have 15 first-round picks going back to the 2018 draft. Georgia is poised to extend its first-round pick run in the 2024 NFL draft.
The Georgia Bulldogs will have an opportunity to improve their NFL draft prospects at the NFL combine and Georgia’s pro day. NFL teams highly regard Georgia’s program and what Kirby Smart is establishing in Athens. Georgia has had 25 players selected in the last two NFL selections, the most in college football.
Draft Wire predicts that three Georgia Bulldogs and one noteworthy UGA transfer will be selected in the first round of the 2024 NFL draft. Where are their NFL destinations?
Team: Los Angeles Chargers.
Brock Bowers joining Jim Harbaugh’s Los Angeles Chargers would be a really entertaining story. Bowers is the draft’s finest tight end, and Los Angeles could need an upgrade. Draft Wire likes what Bowers could contribute to the Chargers.
One may argue that Bowers is a top-three overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Going cornerback was another option, but five looked too high to meet that need. Instead, you add a powerful pass receiver who can influence the game at all three levels of the field.
Pick: No. 14
Team: New Orleans Saints.
Amarius Mims has little collegiate starting experience, but he is one of the most gifted offensive guards in the draft. In 2023, Mims missed several weeks owing to an injury. However, he was pretty effective while healthy and has a lot of potential. According to Draft Wire, the Saints need an offensive lineman, and Mims is an excellent choice.
Mims possesses the physical profile to succeed as either a left or right tackle. If properly developed, he has the potential to be the top offensive lineman in his class.
Wide receiver Adonai Mitchell (transferred to Texas)
Pick: No. 28.
Team: Buffalo Bills.
Georgia supporters still have a soft spot for Texas wide receiver Adonai Mitchell, who transferred to the Longhorns to be closer to his family after the 2023 NCAA football season ended. Mitchell helped Georgia win two national titles and should excel in the NFL.
Mitchell needs to improve as an all-around wide receiver, but he is a big play danger from the moment he goes on the field. This is a wonderful new gadget for Josh Allen.
Pick: No. 31.
Team: Kansas City Chiefs.
This would be a fantastic home for Ladd McConkey. The shifty wide receiver improved his NFL draft ranking at the Senior Bowl and is considered one of the best route runners in the draft.
The Chiefs desperately need help at wide receiver. Despite the deep run at the position earlier in the first round, McConkey has a skill set that the team lacks. He can win as a route runner, adding a vertical aspect and providing underappreciated impact after the catch.
