Georgia senior edge rusher Lorenzo Carter is off to an impressive start in the 2017 college football season.
Three games in, he has been all over opposing quarterbacks. Carter has 13 pressures on just 46 pass-rush attempts.
He’s been able to bring down the opposing signal caller, officially, for three sacks. Two of those came last week in a 42-14 win over Samford.
Carter is third on Georgia’s tackle chart at the moment, with 14 total stops. Eight of those have been solo stops. He had a season-high seven tackles in the Bulldogs’ 20-19 road win at Notre Dame.
Pro Football Focus tweeted this graphic, which notes that Carter has the highest pass-rush productivity among all FBS edge defenders:
