The Georgia Bulldogs' defensive secondary has been ranked as one of the best in college football

Throughout the Kirby Smart era, the Georgia Bulldogs have boasted one of college football’s most dominant defenses that have paved the way for the Dawgs’ success on the gridiron. It appears that Georgia’s latest trend is to continue as well.  According to Pro Football Focus, the Georgia Bulldogs have the seventh-best defensive secondary in college football this season. A ranking that is the second-best in the entire SEC as per the list. 

What makes this ranking so impressive is despite losing three starters from the room just a year ago (Javon Bullard, Tykee Smith, and Kamari Lassiter), the Dawgs’ talent and depth still rank among the best in college football. 

The Bulldogs’ high ranking is another testament to Kirby Smart and his staff’s ability to recruit and develop talent. It also shows that once again, the Georgia Bulldogs should have one of the most ferocious defenses in the SEC, if not the entire sport of college football.

According to PFF, the Bulldogs now have: 

  • The nation’s best quarterback room
  • The nation's third-best running back room
  • The nation’s fourth-best wide receiver corps
  • The nation’s second-best offensive line room 
  • The nation's seventh-best defensive secondary
