Reporter shares just how crazy talented Georgia defense is

The Georgia defense was historic in 2021 and they may make even more history once April and the 2022 NFL draft arrive.

Georgia DL Jordan Davis

Georgia is headed to Indianapolis where they’ll take on Alabama in the National Championship Game on January 10. No matter how that contest plays out, the Bulldogs will still be the big story come April.

Kirby Smart’s defense excelled on a historic level in 2021. Leading up to the SEC Championship Game in December, they were allowing less than a touchdown per contest. Even after the Crimson Tide erupted for 41 points, Georgia’s opponents averaged just 9.5 points per game.

Much of that success came on the shoulders of the Bulldogs’ front seven. They were allowing just 2.61 yards per rushing attempt entering Saturday’s CFP semifinal against Michigan. And opponents punched the ball into the end zone just three times against that defense this past season.

In total, Georgia will likely see 11 players selected in the 2022 NFL draft. Seven of those may even turn out to be top 100 picks.

Outside of Jalen Carter, other top Georgia prospects include linebacker Nakobe Dean, defensive lineman Jordan Davis, edge rusher Travon Walker and safety Lewis Cine. All four could have their names called in Round 1.

Defensive lineman Devonte Wyatt, linebacker Channing Tindall and cornerback Derion Kendrick are other names to watch.
