The Georgia offensive line was the best-represented position group for the Bulldogs at the 2020 NFL Draft. Three of Georgia’s seven selections came from the offensive line, with Andrew Thomas and Isaiah Wilson being Georgia’s only two first-round draft picks.
The offensive line was often praised and talked about as being one of the best in the nation during the 2019 season. The success at the 2020 NFL Draft only validated that.
So which position group could end up being similar to that of the offensive for this upcoming Georgia football team?
Given the talent coming back, to go along with the possible upside, we think it’s going to be Georgia’s secondary. And given how frequent defensive backs were targeted at the top of the 2020 NFL Draft, there’s a plausible chance Georgia could see a repeat of what happened with Thomas and Wilson in next year’s draft with say Eric Stokes and Richard LeCounte.
A number of Georgia’s top defensive backs will all be draft-eligible, meaning Georgia should be expected to see some even leave early as Wilson, Thomas and Solomon Kindley all did for this past draft. In addition to seniors LeCounte, Mark Webb and D.J. Daniel, Eric Stokes and Tyson Campbell are draft-eligible.
As we further explain in the video, the likes of Stokes, Tyson Campbell and D.J. Daniel do have some things they can improve upon in this upcoming season. But there is a real chance that Georgia fans can accurately call Georgia’s secondary — which played a key role in having both the No. 1 scoring and rushing defense in 2019 — one of the best in the nation.
Why UGA’s defensive backs are set up to be the best position group in 2020
