DN90: Expectations rise for UGA ‘wrecking ball’ Jordan Davis

One of the most impactful players on Georgia’s touted defense is nose tackle Jordan Davis. What makes Davis unique is that on a unit filled with former elite recruits, Davis was just a three-star prospect coming out of high school.However, that hasn’t stopped him from becoming a force in the interior of the Bulldogs’ defense.

Davis has primarily been credited as dominant run stopper, but as he prepares to enter his junior season, expectations are rising that he’s also on the verge of establishing himself as a pass rusher too.

Davis tied for second with five of his teammates for the Bulldogs in sacks last season with 2.5. Yet at least one NFL draft scout expects Davis to get after the quarterback even more this upcoming season.

The SEC Network’s Cole Cubelic also recently recognized Davis as well.

Davis’ continued development is critical for UGA. On paper, the Bulldogs have arguably the country’s top defense. However, pass rush hasn’t been a strength for the unit in recent seasons. The Bulldogs were just seventh in the SEC with 31 sacks in 2019.

If Davis improves in that category as some have predicted he could, then he could also be a catalyst for the rest of the defense as well.
