When drafting, Packers prefer Bruins, Bulldogs

  • By JERRY TAPP
  • Over the past ten years (2012-2021) the Green Bay Packers have drafted 90 college players. Those picks have come from 58 different schools. Of those 58 colleges, 20 have had multiple players chosen by the Packers over the past decade.
  • Topping the list is Mississippi State and UCLA, each with four players picked by Green Bay in the draft since 2012.

Here is a look at the schools that have had two or more players drafted by the Packers since 2012:

Four players: Mississippi State, UCLA

The UCLA picks were defensive tackle Kenny Clark, 2016, first round), quarterback Brett Hundley (2015, fifth round), defensive end Datone Jones (2013, first round) and running back Jonathan Franklin (2013, fourth round).

The Mississippi State picks were running back Kylin Hill (2021, seventh round), offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins (2019, second round), Hunter Bradley (2018, long snapper) and defensive end Josh Boyd (2013, fifth round.

Three players: Alabama, California, Iowa, Michigan, South Florida, Stanford, Utah State, Wisconsin

Two players: Arizona State, Boston College, Indiana, Maryland, North Carolina State, Notre Dame. Ohio State, TCU, Texas A&M, Vanderbilt.

Of the 22 players chosen by the Packers in the last ten years in either round one or two, the only two schools that have had two players chosen by the team were Alabama and UCLA.

Looking at only first-round choices by the Packers in the last 10 years, only one school, UCLA, had two players chosen: Jones and Clark.
