NFL Round Two Mock Draft: Stephen Hill, Cordy Glenn Projected To Go Early

Neither one of the state of Georgia's top college prospects - Georgia Tech wide receiver Stephen Hill and Georgia offensive lineman Cordy Glenn - went in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft as many analysts had predicted. However, both are expected to go off the board (one immediately) when the Draft resumes the second and third rounds Friday and Saturday night, as well as additional talent from the Bulldogs:

33. St. Louis Rams - Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech

First-round pick: Michael Brockers, DT

Several very good wide receivers slipped out of the first round of the draft, and the benefactor is the Rams. Trades for this pick will be a popular news item all day Friday, but it would behoove the Rams to keep the pick. Hill's upside is tremendous and would give the Rams a legitimate vertical threat.

35. Baltimore Ravens - Cordy Glenn, OT, Georgia

First-round pick: No pick

The Ravens lost out on Dont'a Hightower, David DeCastro and Kevin Zeitler and opted to trade out of the first round. Luckily for the Ravens, they still get a good talent in Glenn. He can begin his career inside at guard, but if the teams tackles struggles he could move to tackle.

In addition to Glenn and Hill at the top of the second round, two more Bulldogs are projected to go out:

55. Atlanta Falcons - Orson Charles, TE, Georgia

First-round pick: No pick

Behind Tony Gonzalez there is little quality at tight end for the Falcons. With most of the better interior linemen and pass rushers gone, Charles would be a good pickup.

61. San Francisco 49ers - Brandon Boykin, CB, Georgia

First-round pick: AJ Jenkins, WR

Carlos Rodgers scored a big paycheck this offseason, but San Francisco still needs playmakers in the defensive back. Add to it Boykin's incredible ability in the return game and this seems like an easy pick to guess.

The Falcons were also considered to be suitors for Boykin before trading for Asante Samuel. If this projection holds, Georgia would have a quick start at replicating their annual Draft success of sending anywhere from four to eight players annually.
