Seven Bulldogs selected in draft

April, 28, 2012
With all seven rounds of the NFL draft complete, Georgia finished with seven players selected -- a total that ties with Oklahoma for second most of any school, trailing only Alabama’s eight.

Unlike Alabama, which had four players selected in Thursday’s first round, the bulk of Georgia’s picks came on the final day. The Bulldogs had no first-round selections and only offensive lineman Cordy Glenn selected Friday, when the second and third rounds were held.

A projected first-round pick, Glenn slipped into the second round and went to the Buffalo Bills with the 41st overall pick. Then six Bulldogs came off the board Saturday, including three in the third round -- center Ben Jones to Houston, tight end Orson Charles to Cincinnati and cornerback Brandon Boykin to Philadelphia.

Kicker Blair Walsh went in the sixth round to Minnesota, offensive lineman Justin Anderson went to Indianapolis to lead off the seventh round and defensive lineman DeAngelo Tyson went to Baltimore near the end of the draft.

Here is a recap of the Georgia picks and where they went in the draft (with links to individual recaps):

Second round
OL Cordy Glenn (Buffalo), 41st overall
Fourth round
C Ben Jones (Houston), 99th overall
TE Orson Charles (Cincinnati), 116th overall

Sixth round

Seventh round
OL Justin Anderson (Indianapolis), 208th overall
