Record 11 Dawgs Drafted

Georgia senior pitcher Will Harvil (32nd round), junior catcher Joey Lewis (41st) and junior pitcher Justin Earls (47th) were selected on the final day of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft on Thursday, bringing the total number of Bulldogs drafted to a school-record 11.

I'm pretty surprised that Lewis went so late, but the 11 total players is a pretty impressive tally. Here's the rundown of each pick...
