Bulaga was a tackle. and was picked 23rd.
Using the top 25 as a barometer
2000 - None
2001 - Steve Hutchinson G 17th
2003 - Jeff Faine C 21st
2004 - None
2005 - None
2006 - Davin Joseph G 23rd
2007 - None
2008 - Branden Albert G 15th(Taken as a OT)
2009 - Alex Mack C 21
2010 - Mike Iupati G 17th
2010 - Maurkice Pouncy C 18th
2011 - Mike Pouncy C 15th
2011 - Danny Watkins G 23rd
2012 - David DeCastro G 24th

Using the first round as a barometer
2000 - None
2001 - Hutchinson(G) 17th
2002 - Simmons(G) 30th
2003 - Faine(C) 21st
2004 - None
2005 - Spencer(C) 26th, Mankins(G) 32nd
2006 - Josepg(G) 23rd, Mangold(C) 29th
2007 - Grubbs(G) 29th
2008 - Albert(G) 15th, taken as a OT
2009 - Mack(C) 21st, Wood(C) 28th
2010 - Iupati(G) 17th, Pouncey(C) 18th
2011 - Pouncey(C) 15th, Watkins(G) 23rd
2012 - DeCastro(G) 24th, Zeitler(G) 27th

as i said, guards don't normally go top 20. Iupati was the last one and before him it was Albert who was drafted as a OT, before then you have to go all the way back to Hutchinson.

all of those guards who went that high also were seen as top tier, near can't miss guys who were either blocked from playing OT by a better player(Ferguson and Monroe blocked Albert from playing OT at UVA) or just seen as insane talent(Hutchinson,Iupati & DeCastro)
