Not many teams recruit better than the Georgia Bulldogs. Ever since Kirby Smart arrived in Athens, he has been at or near the top of the recruiting rankings on signing day and that has translated to putting out some of the best NFL talent that each year.

Georgia had several players go in the first few rounds in 2021, with Eric Stokes being a first-round pick, Tyson Campbell and Azeez Ojulari going in the second round, and Ben Cleveland and Richard LeCounte went later.

There are still plenty of good draft prospects on the roster and you could argue that there are better guys in this draft class for Georgia than last year.

On offense, this is going to be a huge season for quarterback JT Daniels. He played great once he got healthy and was inserted into the starting job, but he will have to show he can stay healthy for a full season to be considered among the draft’s top quarterbacks. The running back room is loaded and I think that one of Zamir White or James Cook can have a monster season and rise up the NFL draft boards. Star wideout George Pickens was injured in the spring, but he should still remain among the top wideouts in next year’s draft.

This should be another top defense in Athens and defensive lineman Jordan Davis will be one of the reasons why. Davis can cause havoc inside and be one of the most disruptive players in the country and I think his return for his senior season should give him room to move up in the draft and be one of the top defensive players taken next April.

Here are the top three 2022 draft prospects from the Georgia Bulldogs
