One of Georgia’s top defenders, safety Lewis Cine, has made his decision to skip his senior season and enter his name into the 2022 NFL Draft.

Cine, a former four-star prospect out of Trinity Christian School (TX), was a multi-year starter for the Bulldogs and a key member of one of the best defensive units in college football history.

A hard-hitting defensive back at 6-foot-1 200-pounds, Cine was a reliable defender his entire career and was excellent coming downhill and helping stop the run. He was one of the top run-defending safeties in the conference and left many bruises during his career in Athens. 

Cine was a top priority for the Georgia staff in the 2019 class, committing to Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs over Florida, Michigan, Penn State, and Texas on October 10, 2018. 

As a freshman in 2019, Cine played in 14 games and started in two of them, making 20 total tackles on the season.

As a sophomore in 2020, Cine started 10 games and was second on team in tackles with 49 stops. 

As a junior this past fall, Cine was named AP All-SEC 1st Team and All-SEC 2nd Team according to the coaches. The Texas native was also a semifinalist for the 2021 Paycom Jim Thorpe Award, given to the nation’s top defensive back. Cine led the team in tackles this past season with 73 tackles to go along with a team-high nine pass breakups.

He made play after play during this season’s national championship ride and will bring Georgia Bulldog toughness to one lucky NFL team. 

Cine was named Defensive MVP of the Georgia’s CFP Championship Game victory over Alabama, making seven tackles, one TFL, and one PBU.

After a productive career and outstanding performance in Georgia’s national championship victory, it’s clear that Cine will be remembered in a big way to Georgia fans for years to come.


The Georgia Bulldogs are national champions once more. 

Kirby Smart and his No. 1 Dawgs have run through the 2021 season - knocking out Nick Saban and Alabama in Indianapolis to win it all in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game. 

Now you can own this commemorative keep-sake hardcover book to remember the season. DAWGSTRUCTION will print in late January when the season concludes. The cover is subject to change.
