The Best Sports Handicapper believes Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets football team did a great job of coming off of one of its worst seasons under the leadership of Paul Johnson last season.
Georgia Tech was 3-9 in 2015 but won nine games last season, including a convincing Bowl victory over Kentucky. With seventeen starters returning in 2017 expectations are high in Atlanta, and Johnson accepts the challenge.
Johnson is seeking his fifth Atlantic Coast Conference Coastal, division title and believes he has everything in place to compete with Virginia Tech and preseason favorites Miami.
Georgia Tech opens the 2017 season at the brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in downtown Atlanta vs. Tennessee.
The “RAMBLIN WRECK” gets Virginia Tech, North Carolina and Pittsburgh at home. However, road trips to Miami and Clemson could prove to be tough, but they have plenty of experience on both offense and defense.
The 2017 Georgia Tech offense will be without longtime starter Justin Thomas under center.
Matthew Jordan seems to be a perfect fit for the triple option and all indications are he will be the quarterback in 2017. The Junior has appeared in just fourteen games in his time at Georgia Tech mostly in mop up duty.
TaQuon Marshall will also have a shot at the starting quarterback job. Running Back, Dedrick Mills (771) yards last season leads a talented group at the position.
As usual, the Georgia Tech running attack is one of the most potent in the nation, (258.1) yards per game last season ninth in the FBS.
Junior Clinton Lynch will also contribute at the running back position.
A veteran offensive line led by senior offensive tackle Andrew Marshall will keep the Georgia Tech offense on the field for extended amounts of time, and they will chew up plenty of time on the clock.
Wideouts Brad Stewart and Ricky Jeune have the speed to go deep against athletes in opposing secondaries which will be needed against Clemson, Virginia Tech, and Miami.
The key to success for the Georgia Tech offense is for a quarterback to emerge and produce.
The Georgia Tech defense allowed opponents twenty-four and a half points per game last season, thirty-ninth in the FBS.
The fifth year defensive coordinator Ted Roof may have his best unit in his tenure with eight starters returning.
Senior Ends Antonio Simmons and KeShun Freeman must be more disruptive at the point of attack and also put pressure on the opposing quarterback.
Linebacker Brant Mitchell has the size and speed to play at the next level but becomes better at sniffing out plays to become great.
The Georgia Tech secondary is the strength of the defense. In 2016 they allowed opponents (229.4) yards per contest, sixty-eight nationally.
The numbers should improve in 2017 with all four starters returning, and there is also depth at both cornerback and safety.
Georgia Tech won;t have to face NFL draftees Mitch Trubisky of North Carolina, DeShaun Watson of Clemson, Nathan Peterman of Pittsburgh, or Brad Kayaa of Miami. Georgia Tech will be solid at every level on defense in 2017.
Bovada.Lv lists the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at +3,300 to win the 2017 Atlantic Coast Conference Crown.
