Going shortly after Stokes in the draft order was fellow cornerback Tyson Campbell, who was an off-and-on starter in his three seasons at Georgia. Listed at 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds, he has the physical tools to succeed at the professional level. He just needs to turn his potential into production, which is something he didn’t consistently do while at Georgia. Azeez Ojulari: 50th overall (second round), New York Giants
It wasn’t surprising for Eric Stokes to be a first-round draft choice, as he was projected by many to be a late-first, early-second round selection. But he wasn’t expected to be the first Bulldog to hear his name called. Nonetheless, the Green Bay Packers decided on Stokes, and his speed will be utilized to pair with Jaire Alexander at the cornerback position.

Inside linebacker Monty Rice finished with 28 starts during his career at Georgia, with 22 coming in the Bulldogs’ 24 games over the past two seasons. He finished with 219 career tackles and 10.5 tackles for loss while at Georgia. For the Tennessee Titans, Rice likely won’t see much meaningful action during his rookie season, as 2018 first-round pick Rashaan Evans has one season remaining on his rookie contract and is expected to fill the starting role.

Outside linebacker Azeez Ojulari was projected as a first-round talent throughout much of the pre-draft process. But with an injury history that includes a torn ACL, he slipped into the second round to the New York Giants at pick No. 50, joining former Bulldogs Andrew Thomas, Tae Crowder and Lorenzo Carter.
