Just how many first-round selections will come from Georgia in the 2018 NFL draft? Besides the obvious in linebacker Roquan Smith, there’s another name rocketing up the draft boards at the Senior Bowl.
Bulldogs offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn has earned rave reviews for his work during Senior Bowl practice in Mobile, Ala., and some analysts now have him as the second-best interior line prospect, behind Notre Dame’s Quenton Nelson.
Among them: NFL.com analyst Lance Zierlein.
Trying to watch Auburn LB Tre' Williams and the Rockets/TWolves but it has turned into peeping UGA's Isaiah Wynn on every play. He is so good.

Wynn, listed at 6 feet 2 and 302 pounds at Georgia, started 41 games in his Bulldogs career while playing both guard and left tackle. He started at left tackle this season but almost certainly will be a guard at the next level.
While it’s not certain how high Wynn will be selected, he’s now widely ranked as a likely top-50 pick. No Georgia offensive lineman has been picked in the first round since the Denver Broncos selected tackle George Foster 20th overall in the 2003 draft. Only one Georgia lineman, tackle Cordy Glenn, has gone in the top 50 since.
