Georgia draft hopefuls set to test for NFL scouts

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - NFL scouts and coaches are set to preview what is expected to be Georgia's biggest NFL draft class in school history.

Possible first-round picks Jarvis Jones, Alec Ogletree and Jonathan Jenkins will headline a large group of draft hopefuls who will be tested on Georgia's pro day on Thursday.

Georgia could have 10 or more players selected in next month's NFL draft. It had a school-record eight players drafted in 2002.

Jones, Ogletree and Jenkins were defensive starters. Georgia's most recent first-round picks - receiver A.J. Green in 2011 and quarterback Matthew Stafford and running back Knowshon Moreno in 2009 - were offensive stars.

The last Georgia defensive player to be drafted in the first or second round was cornerback Tim Jennings, a second-round pick in 2006.
