During Round 1 of the 2020 NFL Draft, 2 former Georgia offensive linemen — Andrew Thomas and Isaiah Wilson — heard their names called by commissioner Roger Goodell.

As the draft progressed, Solomon Kindley heard his name called in Round 4. That, obviously, leaves 3 gigantic holes on the Georgia offensive line heading into the 2020 season.

Also, former OL coach Sam Pittman is gone, taking over as the head coach at Arkansas. However, the Dawgs have former Ole Miss head coach Matt Luke as their new OL coach and Pittman said recently he’s confident the Bulldogs will be fine up front (via OnlineAthens.com):

“There’s plenty of talent on that line there even though they lost several kids but they recruited well like Georgia always does,” Pittman said. “Xavier Truss is a kid that’s got a lot of talent. They’ll be fine. They’ve got a really good offensive line coach there. They’ll be fine.”
