Georgia Vs. Buffalo Depth Chart: Ramik Wilson And Malcolm Mitchell To Start

The two biggest changes in Georgia's opening day depth chart are linebacker Ramik Wilson and cornerback Malcolm Mitchell both in starting positions on defense.

Wilson returns after a difficult freshman year in which he was forced to cope with the death of his father. This year, defensive coordinator Todd Grantham was happy to give Wilson the starting job at outside linebacker, stating:

"[Ramik] has worked hard, has developed his skills, he'll be a good player for us there. I look forward to watching him play there Saturday. He's earned it."

Mitchell, also in his second year, is a supremely talented athlete who actually finished second in receiving last year for the Bulldogs. He'll start the year at cornerback, filling in for the suspended Sanders Commings.

When Commings returns after serving his two-game suspension, Mitchell could return to the offense, but that will depend on where his coaches feel he is most needed.
