Prior to last season, he had made two starts at right tackle with both coming in the 2019 season.

Three Georgia players named Sporting News preseason All-Americans

Junior Tykee Smith was a selection at safety. The former West Virginia player was the fourth-highest rating among defensive backs in the 247Sports Transfer Porter ratings after he recorded 33 solo tackles, 5 pass breakups, and two interceptions this past fall en route to being named an All-Big 12 Honorable Mention. Smith was previously named an FWAA Freshman All-American for his efforts during the 2019 campaign. As a freshman, he was the team’s fifth-leading tackler with 53 tackles, including 36 unassisted tackles, one sack, and a forced fumble. At defensive tackle, senior Jordan Davis earns a selection. He has served as a key contributor for all three of his seasons on campus and has been a full-time starter in each of the past two seasons. Had Davis entered the 2021 NFL Draft, he would have been a high pick but he elected to come back for one more year. In three years with the program, the Charlotte, N.C. native has totaled 59 total tackles, seven tackles for loss, five sacks, and a blocked kick. He missed three games and most of a fourth in 2020 with an elbow injury but returned to play in each of UGA’s last two games.
