ATHENS - Georgia Bulldog defensive lineman Jordan Davis announced Friday that he was entering the NFL Draft, and praised Georgia fans along the way. 

Davis said that “life changed forever” after committing to Georgia in late 2017. His move to the NFL was expected. Davis is considered one of the top defensive lineman prospects for this year’s draft. 

Davis called Georgia fans “the most passionate, loving, supportive and loyal fanbase in the entire country.”

Davis added: “You are the reason we go out there and play so hard. This National Championship Trophy is for you. I will miss playing in front of you every week. I am who I am because of you.”

He added that Georgia “will be in my heart every step of the way” in his professional journey. 

Davis and the Bulldogs a led the nation in scoring defense, fewest touchdowns allowed and red zone defense.
Georgia’s opponents were held to 153 total points in 15 games (10.2 points per game), and that was the fewest average points allowed in the CFP era. For perspective, the next lowest points allowed nationally this season was 191 by Texas A&M, and that came in 12 games. This marked the third time in school history that Georgia led the NCAA in Scoring Defense, also doing it in 1968 (9.8 ppg) and 2019 (12.6 ppg). Georgia’s defense this season allowed an FBS-low 13 touchdowns and posted three shutouts. Twelve of Georgia’s opponents were held to a season-low in points. Alabama’s 18 points in the CFP National Championship Game marked the fewest it had scored in a game since the 2018 season.
