UGA Football Preseason: John Jenkins Believes Bulldogs Have Best Defense In SEC

The SEC is as talented as any football conference in America, but John Jenkins believes that Georgia's defense might be a littler better than the rest of their rivals.

I believe our defense is the top defense. But me saying that doesn't mean I'm talking bad about any other defense because there are a lot of good defenses out there. As a Georgia Bulldog, I'm not going to sit there and downplay our defense for anybody else's because they're not going to do the same for us. If they believe they're the best defense, then they're going to say that. I believe that we're the best defense so I'm going to say that.

A nose guard who considered jumping to the NFL, Jenkins is one of the main reasons why the Bulldogs' defense is so feared. Last season Jenkins recorded 28 tackles and three sacks.
