247Sports pre-spring depth chart projections:
We’re four classes in to the Kirby Smart recruiting era, and I continue to be stunned every time I look at the depth that’s been amassed up and down the offensive line. Rowe writes, “Georgia fans had better enjoy Thomas while they can”, but, whereas five years ago that would have given me a real sense of panic over what Georgia might plug in to replace a top ten in the draft-type talent, now it does nothing but give me confidence that Pittman will find a way to plug and play. Amazing.
Defensively, more of the same. Georgia has to replace an all-American talent, just like it did the season before, but there is a ton of depth at every position waiting to emerge — just look at names like Divaad Wilson at the top of the chart at the STAR position. My biggest concern right now might be injuries on the defensive line. Marshall’s limited and Smart’s obviously worried about Jordan Davis staying in shape to be a significant contributor.
What are your takeaways?
