The first is the rising junior defensive lineman Jalen Carter, who is considered one of the top 5 draft picks in the NFL by draft analysts. The All-American preseason is set for a big year for a new UGA defense without Jordan Davis, Devonte Wyatt or Travon Walker.

Brock Bowers led the national champions to receive last season as a rookie. With a year in the system under his belt and quarterback Stetson Bennett back at the helm, Bowers will have an even bigger role in the Bulldogs offense.

Kelee Ringo put the college football world on notice when he sealed the deal in the National Championship with the infamous interception returned for a touchdown. What has gone unnoticed by many is Ringo’s impact throughout the season as a lockdown cornerback. Also considered a top NFL draft pick next spring, Ringo will be the Bulldogs’ No. 1 cover man in 2022.
