The Georgia defense once again comes into the season with high expectations and the possibility of being a top 5 unit in the country.

The defense line is expected to be a dominant one and with a ton of questions on the back end, Kirby Smart hit the transfer portal and searched for and may have found some answers.

The UGA secondary is certainly depleted after losing Eric Stokes, Tyson Campbell, Richard LeCounte, and Mark Webb to the NFL Draft, but a few incoming transfers could help cover up those departures.

Kirby Smart added CB Derion Kendrick from Clemson and Safety Tykee Smith from West Virginia and both guys are expected to start immediately.

If the biggest supposed weakness for the UGA defense suddenly becomes a strength, it could be the boost needed to push Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs to their first national championship in over 40 years.

Unfortunately for Kendrick, Smith, and the rest of the Georgia defense, there isn't much time to figure things out as the Bulldogs open the season facing Clemson in Charlotte.
