Nakobe Dean as Leia Organa

Before anyone judges for comparing a male Georgia football player to a female Star Wars character, it’s essential to include the movie’s biggest stars, and Leia Organa is one of those.

Nakobe Dean would make a great male version of Leia as they have similar characteristics. Both are generals and excellent leaders that put their teams on their backs.

Leia is sassy, slightly dangerous, and running the whole show even though her twin brother usually gets more attention. Dean is also all of those things, and while Dawg nation appreciated what he did for the defense, he is still underappreciated after seeing the NFL Draft.

Not to mention both of them have had some of the most iconic fashion moments, and that alone needs to be recognized.

Both of them are total badasses who defy the odds. Leia overcomes a lot as a woman, while Dean doesn’t let anything stand in his way of leading. He was a big reason Georgia had such good defense, and Leia was a big reason the resistance found so much success.

Lastly, Leia is brilliant, and so is Dean. While this pairing may be weird to some, it was perfect for us because the personalities are similar, and Leia is one of the best characters in the franchise, which I suspect Dean will appreciate.
