On Monday, the AP All-America squad was announced and five Bulldogs in total made the squads, including two defensemen who were named to the first team. The five Georgia players selected in total are tied with Alabama for most of all schools.
Linebacker Nakobe Dean and defensive lineman Jordan Davis have been named to the first team, having enjoyed stellar seasons in a Georgian defense that has allowed just 9.54 points per game this season.
Davis has been the heart and soul of Team Georgia this season, leading the defense and garnering enough buzz at a normally overlooked position to finish ninth in the Heisman Trophy race. Davis has 28 total tackles and two sacks this season, but his ability to shoot doubles teams has been incredibly valuable, opening up space for others to make plays.
Dean was another Georgia defense leader and tied for the team lead in tackles at 61. He also added five sacks, five stoppages, two interceptions and a forced fumble, doing it all for the defense. by Kirby Smart.
First-year tight end Brock Bowers was the only Georgia offensive player to be part of one of three teams, selected as the second team tight end. Bowers has been remarkable for Georgia this season, amassing 47 receptions for 791 yards and 11 touchdowns and adding a 12th trip to the rushing end zone.
Senior defensive lineman Devonte Wyatt is also on the second team, which, along with Davis and Jalen Carter, has formed college football’s most impressive indoor defensive line rotation. Wyatt has 34 total tackles, two forced fumbles and 2.5 sacks this season.
Safety Lewis Cine was the last Bulldogs selected, making the third team. Cine has 61 tackles this season, tied with Dean for the team manager. Cine also added one interception and eight pass breakouts as a standout high school member from Georgia.
