NFL News: 2022 NFL Draft Rounds 2-3 Notes

RECORD-TYING RECEIVERS: 13 wide receivers were selected in the first two rounds of the 2022 NFL Draft, tied with the 2020 NFL Draft for the most in the first two rounds in the common-draft era (since 1967), while the 17 wide receivers selected in the first three rounds were tied with the 2007 and 1994 NFL Drafts for the most in the first three rounds since 1967.

NINE THROUGH THREE: After a record five defensive players from Georgia were selected in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft, four additional Bulldogs were selected on Day 2: WR GEORGE PICKENS (No. 52, Pittsburgh), RB JAMES COOK (No. 63, Buffalo), LB NAKOBE DEAN (No. 83, Philadelphia) and LB CHANNING TINDALL (No. 102, Miami).

The seven defensive players from Georgia are the most by a single school in the first three rounds of a single NFL Draft since 1967, surpassing the previous high of six from Alabama (2017) and LSU (2013).

Georgia’s nine selections in the first three rounds of the 2022 NFL Draft are tied with Alabama (nine players in 2017 and 2020) for the second-most players in the first three rounds by a single Draft in the common-draft era. Only LSU in 2020 (10 players) and Ohio State in 2016 (10) had more in the first three rounds.

HOMEWARD BOUND: Seven players selected in the first three rounds of the 2022 NFL Draft were drafted by a team in the same state as their college football program.
