The best 6 Georgia football players through the first 6 weeks of the season

6. Eric Stokes, defensive back

The why: We had to include at least one defensive back on this list. And the margin between Stokes and senior safety J.R. Reed is razor-thin. Reed does so much in terms of setting up the defense and he’s warranted the label “The Human Eraser.”

But after watching what Stokes did against Tennessee, we have to give the slightest of nods to the redshirt sophomore cornerback. While he’s yet to snare an interception this season, he’s got a team-best 6 pass break-ups. And that’s despite missing a majority of the Notre Dame game.

Georgia has been vulnerable at times over the middle of the field. But teams have had very little success when trying to go after Stokes in coverage. If and/or when Georgia goes up against Alabama or LSU, the Bulldogs should feel as comfortable as any team putting Stokes on whichever elite wide receiver he’s tasked with covering.

And as he showed against Tennessee, he’s very capable of just laying out an opposing player.

The quote: “He’s just always working, he’s already whenever his number is going to call. We expect him to play and do big things when he’s out there.” — Georgia safety J.R. Reed
