Georgia Made Players In The 2021 NFL Draft


Georgia knows two things, peaches and making NFL players. Cartersville native, Trevor Lawrence, was selected number one overall to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Harrison High alum, Justin Fields, is going to Chicago to help solidify their failed attempts at the quarterback position. Jaycee Horn of Alpharetta is off the the land of Blue Crabs in Baltimore. Rashod Bateman of Tift County is now a Minnesota Viking. Azeez Ojulari of Marietta, was the only player not taken in the first round and is still available. Since Ojulari wasn't picked, that could've tied the state record of Georgians selected in the First Round. The only time that five Georgia players have gone in the first round was 1995. That group featured Carlos Rogers of Butler, Ronnie Brown of Cartersville, Thomas Davis of Randolph-Clay, David Pollack of Shiloh and Adam Jones of Westlake.
