“We definitely feel like we’ve dropped off with our speed on the edge after Lorenzo (Carter) and Davin (Bellamy),” Georgia head coach Kirby Smart said. “With Jermaine and Nolan, I don’t know if there are two better rushers in a signing class anywhere in the country when it comes to speed. They have to help us disrupt quarterbacks.”
I don’t think D’Andre Walker is a slouch in the speed department; his 7.5 sacks in 2018 leads the team in both seasons. But when only one other defensive player notched even two sacks (Channing Tindall, a true freshman who had limited playing time most of the season), yeah, Kirby’s got a point.
Johnson’s already practicing with the team.
