Good linebackers come in many shapes and sizes and have varying play styles. Georgia football is riddled with impressive linebackers. The class of 2022 includes multiple prospects with much promise. With so many prospects, some do not garner the attention they deserve. Let’s look at five linebackers whose names scouts should get to know if they don’t already.

Kalen Justice, Drew
Justice is a nice, promising backer. He has a nose for the ball and consistently meets defenders in running lanes. He plays with a high motor. Justice takes good pursuit angles, cutting off ball carriers from getting extra yards. He put forth a strong junior campaign, he had 118 total tackles, 84 solo tackles, and forced 2 fumbles in 10 games. He offers more than just run support, having sound coverage skills. He comfortable covering the underneath zones. Justice shows good movement and does not waste much time pursuing ball carriers. While Justice is a little undersized he possesses a lot of desirable traits for a good linebacker. Justice can be a good addition to a NAIA or D3 program.
