Meet the front seven

Josh and Graham do their spring deep dive on Georgia’s front seven.

Honestly, they had me at Jordan Davis, but check out Devonte Wyatt’s production:

I love Adam Anderson’s game, but, damn, he’s got some big, big shoes to fill this season.

Bottom line:  Georgia’s got a stout front seven to work with, which is a good thing, because that inexperienced secondary is going to need whatever help it can get.

    Jordan Davis is the man in this group. If he gets double teamed that frees up other people to kill the QB. Take a lot of pressure of the secondary

      UGA football is going to be stout (injuries not with standing), special teams play, UGA offense will help the “D” and the plus will be how the “D” coordinator helps the secondary with various schemes and producing 2nd and 3rd and long predictable down and distance….

    What happened to Bill Norton? I remember when he signed, it was trumpeted as a big get. He seems to have faded in to obscurity. Failure to develop or injury?

    Jalen Carter is about to go off this season. He was unblockable at times last year. Plus, he’s fast.

    Also, don’t sleep on Nolan Smith (or rather, I hope the opposition does sleep on him). He’s going to get more than his share this season.

    The thing that immediately jumps out is the rate that of Anderson and Smith pressure or hit the QB. It was higher than Ojulari’s. I think we will be okay in the havoc department this year. Particularly with a Davis, Carter, and Wyatt as down linemen.

    • The issue is whether or not Anderson can stay on the field and defend the run enough to get the snaps needed to truly break out.

        Sounds like getting him pass coverage snaps will get him more opportunities to be on the field

          All this press about Anderson in coverage seems to be a tacit acknowledgment of a huge issue last year, the short passing game. Goodness gracious, some of those later games after the Florida game were just painful. Our backers were shredded underneath on short routes.
