There will be no shortage of players from Georgia at the NFL combine.

 

Ten former Bulldogs are listed as slated to participate in the scouting event for draft prospects in Indianapolis this year. On-field workouts are March 2-5.

The players from Georgia listed on NFL.com on Tuesday in alphabetical order: defensive tackle John Atkins, outside linebackers Davin Bellamy and Lorenzo Carter, running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, safety Dominick Sanders, junior inside linebacker Roquan Smith, junior defensive tackle Trenton Thompson, wide receiver Javon Wims and offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn.

Georgia is tied for the third most at the combine, according to Chase Goodbread of NFL.com. Alabama leads with 14, Ohio State has 11 and Georgia and LSU each have 10.

Smith and Wynn are both listed in the top 20 overall prospects in a mock draft posted Tuesday by ESPN.com draft analyst Todd McShay.

Among those not on the combine list but will have a chance to get in front of NFL scouts at the school’s on-campus Pro Day: punter Cameron Nizialek, cornerback Aaron Davis, fullback Christian Payne, tight end Jeb Blazevich and cornerback Malkom Parrish.
