Diving Into A Decades Worth of the Swarm’s Entry Draft Picks

With the 2021 NLL Entry Draft now behind us, we look back at a decade’s worth of draft picks the Georgia Swarm has selected over the years.

Since 2011, the Swarm have had 27 first round draft picks, 15 of whom continue to play for Georgia. Out of a decade’s worth of veterans, Jordan MacIntosh is the most seasoned as he was the Swarm’s first draft pick and the fourth overall in the 2011 NLL Entry Draft.  

Twenty-three out of the 82 draft picks the Swarm has utilized across 10 years still reside with Georgia. Since 2018, the Swarm has retained 66.7 percent of its draftees, as four members from both the 2018 and 2019 class suit up in the navy and gold along with the 2020 draftees.

During the 2020 NLL Entry Draft, the Swarm picked up four prospects during the first round in Robert Hudson, Jeff Henrick, Ethan Walker and Laine Hruska. Last year’s draft marked the fourth time in the last decade the Swarm had four first round picks (2012-13, 2015).

This year, Georgia had two first round picks following with four in the second totaling 12 picks overall. The 2021 draft class joins the decade’s worth of draftees below (those in bold are still on the Swarm roster):
