Former Dawgs in the NFL

The University of Georgia has the third most active players in the National Football League with 36 "Pro Dawgs". Only Miami with 44 and Florida State with 37 rank ahead of the Bulldogs. There are however, nine former Dawg defensive ends in the league, the most from any school. Georgia is also tied for the most tight ends with four, as well as for the most kickers with two. In the past, Georgia has been known for supplying the pros with quality running backs and linebackers. With the talent that is stockpiled in Athens, and with the agressive recruiting of Georgia's staff, you will continue to see many former Georgia players in the NFL. However, it is always the hope of the Bulldawg Nation that they complete their college eligibility first. Are you listening, numbers 7 and 24?
