And the Number Two Ranked SEC Defensive Backfield Is… Georgia?

[su_spacer size=”20″] Remember the bad old days of ‘third and Willie’ or the more recent bewilderment and finger-pointing of Todd Grantham’s d-backs? Those days are gone and Georgia’s d-backs are experiencing new found respect in the lead-up to spring practice.

Georgia: After LSU, this unit was the SEC’s best in limiting opponents through the air (170.3 passing yards allowed per game). The good news for Jeremy Pruitt is that not only does he have quite a few options in the secondary, most of them have experience. Dominick Sanders, who shined as a freshman, returns; so do fellow safeties Quincy Mauger and Corey Moore, who started seven games and six games, respectively. All the cornerbacks on the two-deep return. With Damian Swann’s departure, a new leader needs to be established, but overall, this is a good group.
