Blog: Georgia again among top producers of NFL talent

Only three schools produced more players that were on NFL rosters on the league’s opening weekend than Georgia.

The Bulldogs had 36 of its former players on rosters, according to the league, which trailed only Southern California’s 40, LSU’s 39 and Miami’s 38.

Georgia was tied for fourth last year in the same survey.

The Bulldogs are followed by Florida and Texas (31 each), Alabama, California and Tennessee (30 each), Ohio State and Oregon (27 each) and Florida (26).

Georgia again has the most players in the NFL at defensive end with seven.

The league didn’t specify those players, but Georgia’s official website compiled a list this week that listed six defensive ends: Chris Clemons (Seattle), Robert Geathers (Cincinnati), Kedric Golston (Washington), Charles Johnson (Carolina), DeAngelo Tyson (Baltimore) and Jarius Wynn (San Diego).

Among those in the league are players who went undrafted out of Georgia: Marlon Brown, Demarcus Dobbs, Dannell Ellerbe, Kwame Geathers, Abry Jones and Dennis Roland.
