We are nearly 100 days away from the start of the 2022 college football season and the start of Georgia’s national title defense for the first time since the 1981 season.
Georgia has lost a lot of talent, breaking an NFL Draft record with 15 players from last year’s national title team being drafted in the 2021 NFL Draft. Although of all the star players who helped win the school’s first tile in 41 years, Georgia’s best player may be back in Athens in 2022.
Jalen Carter. Georgia fans are well aware of his talents and the national media are also starting to catch on.
ESPN’s college football writing team released a “College Football Offseason Primer” in which they listed Jalen Carter as one of the contenders for Heisman. Saying:
Georgia produced a record five NFL first-round picks on defense last month, including first overall pick Travon Walker. More than one opposing coach told ESPN last year that the 6-foot-3, 310-pound Carter was the Dawgs’ most disruptive defenseman on their 2021 National Championship team.
Carter has a lot of anticipation for what should be his final season in Athens, and there’s a lot more to develop from head coach Kirby Smart’s perspective. Smart indicated in the spring that Carter will be called at a much higher rate this fall and will therefore need a strong summer conditioning season.

Smart issued a public challenge to Carter, emphasizing that he wanted Carter to become a leader off the court and continue to improve his game.
“I think he played a part in Tray’s room trying to set an example for others. Devonte and Jordan, and really Travon in that same room, did a great job, with Julian. They established a work ethic standard. , and you want whoever, Jalen, Zion, to control that.”
