It’s another summer in which Georgia football fans are eager to see Labor Day weekend roll around.

Georgia football has become a household name and one of the top programs in the entire country, thanks in large part due to Kirby Smart and his staff. The talent and potential that is being brought into the program over the last few years has been unprecedented.

With that now being the new norm in Athens, so becomes the “issue” of having to consistently replace those productive players that move onto the NFL.

There is plenty of opportunity for new or young players on this team to step up and make an immediate impact. While the offense is returning the majority of the skill position players, there are open spots available along the offensive line after Georgia lost two starters from last season.

On the defensive side of the ball, the glaring hole in the secondary. The Dawgs are searching to find answers as to who is going to replace the likes of Richard LeCounte, Eric Stokes, Tyson Campbell, and Mark Webb. While Kirby Smart has made some big moves in the transfer portal to help rebuild the talent in the secondary, there still is plenty of opportunity for players that were on the roster last year to step up.

So which three players are primed to become major contributors to the success of this Georgia team in 2021?

Many fans know how close this team has been to the College Football Playoff over the last few years, and these three players are ready to help carry this team to the semifinal and even further.
