The Georgia Bulldogs football program has become a perennial top team in the nation in recent seasons under head coach Kirby Smart. Last year, the Bulldogs won the Sugar Bowl after just missing out on the College Football Championship, with a 12-2 season in the SEC.

With a talented 2019 roster, there will be a number of Georgia players selected in the 2020 NFL Draft. Here are the top four Bulldogs' prospects, with predicted landing spots.

4. Jake Fromm, Quarterback – New England Patriots (No. 87)

In case you haven't heard, the Tom Brady era is over in New England. Bill Belichick has made no inclination on whether or not he may bring in a veteran quarterback. Only Jarrett Stidham (Baylor and Auburn alum) and Cody Kessler are on the roster as of now. Jake Fromm is not projected to be a top NFL QB, mainly due to questionable arm strength and a lack of physical traits in general, but one thing he does have is intelligence and field vision. As we know with Belichick, he values the earned intangibles over the God-given ones.

3. Isaiah Wilson, Right Tackle – Denver Broncos (No. 46)

The offensive line has been a ongoing process for John Elway and the Denver Broncos. They currently have a former first-round pick in Garett Bolles at left tackle, and Ja'Wuan James at right, but not much depth behind either. Isaiah Wilson is not projected to become a left tackle at the NFL level, and his inconsistent play and inability to learn different schemes at Georgia might make him more of a backup out of the gates. However, with the right size and length, the Broncos might take the chance on him.

2. D'Andre Swift, Running Back – Kansas City Chiefs (No. 32)

D'Andre Swift could be the top running back available in the 2020 NFL Draft. Georgia running backs have had success in the NFL in the past, and Swift possesses the intelligence and awareness to make all the cuts in and out of NFL blocking schemes. The Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs don't have too many things that they need, but a franchise running back is certainly one of them. This would be a match made in Heaven for all parties.

1. Andrew Thomas, Left Tackle – New York Jets (No. 11)

The top Bulldog prospect is left tackle Andrew Thomas, who stands at 6'5" and 315 pounds. The technically sound and physically gifted blocker made things easier for both Fromm and Swift during their time in Athens, and is considered a day-one starter and possible top ten pick. If he drops to 11, it's hard to imagine the tackle-starved New York Jets would pass on Thomas, especially with new general manager Joe Douglas vowing to fix this issue during his first off-season for the franchise.
