Projected Depth Chart:
3. Chauncey Manac (will get snaps at OLB as well)
5. Robert Beal (may get snaps at OLB as well)
This could well be one of the more exciting groups for UGA this season. Ledbetter is one of the potential stars on this defense and then there are 4 players under 20 battling for the other spots. David Marshall is likely going to be the backup at this spot, and fans should expect to see him a lot. The other 3 will likely rotate in and out, keeping players fresh and each offering a different option at the position.
It will be interesting to see how Manac and Beal end up rotating between DE and OLB. Both of them are a little smaller than the other 3 and offer a little more pass rush potential. This position group certainly offers Mel Tucker and his coaches plenty of versatility. Hopefully they really lead to an increase in production in terms of sacks in 2017.
