Georgia Football Preview: 2022 Predictions, Players To Watch, More

 Staff   in Football

Chris Lee, Blake Lovell, and Blayne Gilmer preview the 2022 season for Georgia football, including predictions, players to watch, expectations on offense and defense, and much more.

The Georgia Bulldogs are the defending national champions. Georgia's 33 - 18 victory over Alabama in January ended a 41-year national title drought for Georgia. Kirby Smart's team produced 15 NFL Draft picks, setting an all-time record in the modern draft era.

Georgia returns 8 starters on offense and 5 on defense. Stetson Bennett IV continues to be one of the more overlooked quarterbacks in the league and the country heading into the 2022 season despite showing up for Georgia big time in the College Football Playoff.

Jamon Dumas-Johnson is a name to know as the next leader of the Georgia defense at inside linebacker. Nolan Smith, Chris Smith, Robert Beal, and William Poole all return as well to provide leadership on a defense that will have a lot of new faces.

Georgia opens up with the Oregon Ducks. That opener is likely to be Georgia's toughest regular season match until November. Even so, Georgia is opening up in some sportsbooks as an 18-point favorite.

The win total over/under for Georgia is 11.
