Georgia Tech football has wrapped up the spring practices and game, and fall is just around the corner. So who will end up with those coveted starting and 2nd string spots when the season finally opens?

We took a look at what might be expected on the offensive depth chart, and now it’s time to review what could be seen on defense.

There was a lot of turnover on defense, but defensive coordinator Ted Roof has some talent ready to step in, as well as some exciting young players who will be entering as freshman and have a shot at making the squad.

With a base 4-2-5 defense being employed this season (although it was used a lot last year), it means that the linebackers are going to have to really buckle down, and the defensive line is going to have to stop the run at all costs.

Who will replace Jeremiah Attaochu and Jemea Thomas, two of Tech’s most productive defensive players last year, and how will the Jackets improve what was one of the worst pass defenses in the nation last season?

There’s a lot of positions up for grabs on defense, so here’s a quick early look at who may be on the 2-deep depth chart.
