Nolan Smith as BB8

We couldn’t make this list without including Georgia football stud Nolan Smith, but who would he be in Star Wars? He and BB8 are the perfect match because they are both vocal and willing to do their part.

BB8 is the new favorite droid, and that will be Smith as he leads the defense in 2022. He could have left and probably would have been the 16th Georgia draft pick, but Smith chose to come back and lead the defense. His willingness to help Georgia stay elite is why we think BB8 is perfect.

Nothing bothers either of these players, and they understand the value of a team. That skill is a dying one, but Smith refuses to let that happen.

BB8 and Smith often got overlooked, but that doesn’t mean they are any less unique. They don’t demand the spotlight, and it just comes to them.

While R2D2 is spunky, so is BB8, and he is swift, which, again, Smith is too. They both have big, bold personalities, but deep down are the most loyal and will love you no matter what.

Georgia football players and Star Wars will never look the same after crafting this list, but it was a blast to reflect on who would be the best character choices. There are countless other options, so who would you put on this list? May the force be with you and Georgia football.
