Jarvis Jones had as many sacks as Nico, CJ, Upshaw and Hightower combined last year. He led the SEC in sacks and tackles for loss. He was a first team All American and outside of Tuscaloosa, considered the best LB in the SEC. Gilliard as 2nd string had a better year than both guys you have returning.
Jones 70 tackles, 19.5 TFL and 13.5 sacks
Gilliard 65 tackles, 7.0 TFL and 2.0 sacks
Tree played in 8 games 52 tackles, 7.5 TFL and 3.0 sacks
Herrera 37 tackles, 3.0 TFL and no sacks
Washington 17 tackles, 6.0 tackles for loss and 5.0 sacks
Robinson 47 tackles, 6.5 TFL and 1.5 sacks
and Bama is returning
Johnson 47 tackles, 6.5 TFL and 1.5 sacks
Mosley 37 tackles, 4.5 TFL and 2.0 sacks
DePriest 25 tackles, 1.5 TFL and 0 sacks
That is the only players at LB that had any significant stats that are coming back.
So do I think the 6 I listed for Georgia are better. Yea not only do I think it, they have proven it on the field. You just need to take off your homer glasses. I don't think Bama has 2 LBs on their team as good as Jarvis and Tree. Show me where those 3 guys and 3 other guys at Bama with very little playing time are better than the 6 I listed, returning for Georgia. Even Robinson, who is Georgia's 4th or 5th best returning LB had the exact same stats as your best returning LB. If we put Harris in there. Then with Hightower, Upshaw, Harris and Mosley and Nico splitting time. Jarvis had as many sacks by himself than Alabama's entire starting LB corp last year.
