Seven Georgia defensive players were drafted in all, including first-round linebackers Jarvis Jones (Pittsburgh) and Alec Ogletree (St. Louis) and third-round selections in nose guard John Jenkins (New Orleans) and safety Shawn Williams (Cincinnati).
"I know we’ve got guys on our defense that are phenomenal," King said. "For me to be a guy on our offense that made it to the league and got drafted, it’s pretty good."
Nose guard Kwame Geathers, who left after his redshirt junior season, went undrafted, though he will sign as a free agent with San Diego, according to a tweet from Georgia’s official Twitter account.
Cornerback Branden Smith said via text he will sign with Tampa Bay.
Receiver Marlon Brown (Houston), defensive end Abry Jones (Jacksonville) and linebackers Christian Robinson (St. Louis) and Mike Gilliard (St. Louis) tweeted they would sign as free agents.
