Roquan Smith and Lorenzo Carter were mentioned in a recent ESPN article naming the best linebacker duos in the SEC.
Carter, of course, was one of 4 players who chose to return to UGA for their senior seasons, while Smith is a junior that many predict will test the NFL draft Waters after the 2017 season.
2. Georgia: Lorenzo Carter and Roquan Smith. Carter flirted with the NFL after getting back to the destructive ways that made him a budding star as a freshman. After his five-sack, 44-tackle junior year, Carter looks rejuvenated and poised for a big senior season as a top pass-rusher. He has the potential to be an early-round pick next year. Smith could actually be a better pro prospect and Georgia’s best defender. He led the Dawgs with 95 tackles last year and forced two fumbles with 6.5 TFLs. Smith is already built like an NFL linebacker.
