Georgia’s change to a 3-4 scheme under Todd Grantham has produced improved results for the Bulldogs, but players who came out of the previous 4-3 scheme are making an impact in the NFL at defensive end.
Is Georgia Defensive End U?
The NFL says it might just be.
Georgia has more former players in the NFL at defensive end—six total–than any other school, according to the league’s count.
The players weren’t specified, but Charles Johnson (Panthers), Robert Geathers (Bengals), Richard Seymour (Raiders), Chris Clemons (Seahawks), Kedric Golston (Redskins) and DeAngelo Tyson (Ravens) make six.
Demarcus Dobbs (Chargers) is now playing tight end and defensive tackle after playing defensive end for the Bulldogs’ in the 3-4. Tyson also played in the 3-4 at Georgia. Golston has also played defensive tackle in the NFL.
Georgia was tied for fourth for the most players on NFL rosters on the league’s opening weekend.
Here’s the top producers, as compiled by the league:
