Covered Games

  • After Arkansas dropped Texas A&M, this looked like a great opportunity to evaluate the Georgia defense, but unfortunately the game quickly got out of hand. The Bulldogs' offense dominated the time of possession. As a result, Georgia's defense was not on the field much in the first half and we did not get a lot of looks at the team's star defensive linemen.


  • Bulldogs inside linebacker Nakobe Dean was the defender who had the biggest game. In the first quarter, Dean came on an interior blitz and snuffed out a quarterback draw for a tackle for a loss. In the third quarter, Dean blitzed up the middle and powered through a running back to start a sack. Dean added another sack a short time later thanks to an interior blitz that went through a blocker.

    For the NFL, Dean is a fast linebacker who is physical and a dangerous blitzer. His blitzing ability will get diminished as a pro because teams more often have inside linebackers drop into coverage and Dean is not big enough to be a designated pass rusher at the pro level. Some team sources told me they thought Dean could go on Day 2 of the 2022 NFL Draft and should go in the early rounds of Day 3 if he slips that far.


  • Georgia nose tackle Jordan Davis looks like a future top-20 pick. He flashed versus Arkansas on a few plays. He snuffed out a quarterback draw on a third-and-5 and showed good speed to run down the line and get a takedown off tackle. Davis is a first-round nose tackle who is a prospect similar to the Giants' Dexter Lawrence or Washington's Da'Ron Payne, both went as top-20 picks.


  • Once again, Georgia outside linebacker Adam Anderson got very little playing time, but he flashed his first-round ability in limited opportunities. In the first quarter, Anderson stayed home on a quarterback draw and got in on a tackle for a loss with linebacker Nakobe Dean. In the fourth quarter, Anderson got upfield against the right tackle and chased down the quarterback for a sack when he scrambled. Anderson is a fast edge rusher who can bend and really hunt down the quarterback. He looks like a future first-round pick with upside to be a better pro than college player.
