The Georgia roster and coaching staff has begun to take shape for the 2022 season. Below you can find live updates on the latest transfer portal, NFL draft and coaching decisions.

The Bulldogs have already had some departures announced ahead of the end of the season, chiefly with Dan Lanning heading to Oregon.

The Bulldogs will likely see quarterback JT Daniels enter the transfer portal as he is expected to do so. Georgia is still waiting on the announcements of quarterback Stetson Bennett and outside linebacker Robert Beal as far as their future plans. Neither would count against the 85-man scholarship cap as it would be the sixth season for both players.

Jan. 17, 11:30 a.m. update: Georgia’s defense got some massive news on Monday morning when outside linebacker Nolan Smith announced he would be returning.

Smith figures to improve as a pass rusher as well as becoming the team leader for the Georgia Bulldogs next season. Already one of the more vocal players on the team, Smith’s experience will greatly help a young defense.

With Georgia losing many of its top players, Smith will be asked to do more next season. But if Georgia is also to get Robert Beal back for another season, outside linebacker should once again become a strength for the Bulldogs. Georgia also signed 5-star edge rusher Marvin Jones Jr., to go along with CJ Madden and Darris Smith in the 2022 recruiting cycle.

Smith joins Christopher Smith and Kelee Ringo as the only projected starters to return for next year’s defense. But Georgia should see more plays from Jalen Carter, Jamon Dumas-Johnson and Kamari Lassiter as they take on bigger roles next season.

Offensive lineman Justin Shaffer also announced his departure from the program. Shaffer was a multi-year starter for the Bulldogs at the left guard position.
