How to Replace Roquan Smith?

July 5, 2018

How do you replace arguably the best linebacker to ever play between the hedges?

Well, you don't.

You can't replace the 137 tackles and 6.5 sacks with just one player. It will take multiple Bulldogs this fall to replace what Smith was able to do.

Luckily, the memories will last forever.

Georgia fans knew the future Butkus award winner was bound for a big junior season, but his coming out party to the rest of the country happened in week 2 against Notre Dame. Former Notre Dame star Quenton Nelson might have the best NFL carrer among that 2018 class, but Smith was the best player on the field on that beautiful Saturday night in South Bend last September.
