No. 2: Georgia Bulldogs

2014 Finish: 10-3, 6-2 SEC, 2nd in SEC East
Key Losses: QB Hutson Mason, RB Todd Gurley, WR Michael Bennett, WR Chris Conley, C David Andrews, DL Ray Drew, LB Amarlo Herrera, LB Ramik Wilson, DB Damian Swann
2015 Recruiting Class: 6th in nation (25 commits)
2015 Prediction: 1st in SEC East

Here we go again. It’s time to pick Georgia to win the East and hope that they don’t stumble along the way somewhere. Once again Mark Richt is pulling in a Top 10 recruiting class and looks to finally get past the “can’t win the big game” label, as unfair as it may be.

For the second straight season, the Bulldogs will be breaking in a new quarterback. But with the way Georgia runs the ball and the weapons they have in the backfield, it may not matter who stands under center. Nick Chubb and Sony Michel will key this Georgia offense.

Defensively the Bulldogs got better all season long, and the genius of hiring Jeremy Pruitt as D.C. is showing itself big time in the defensive recruits coming in. This team will return to old school Georgia football. Pounding running game and punishing defense.
