Georgia Tech finished last in the ACC in sacks and had one of the worst rushing defenses in the country, so it is safe to say that the Yellow Jackets are going to have to be much better up front.

The good news for the defensive line is that Keion White is going to be healthy for the start of the season. White missed the first eight games of the 2021 season and is going to be counted on to give the Yellow Jackets a boost in the pass rush.

T.K. Chimedza is going to be one of the veteran guys on the inside and a likely starter. He had a nice 2019 season, but after missing the entire 2020 season with an injury, he struggled a bit in 2021. The run defense needs him to play as he did in 2019 to have any chance of getting better.

Kyle Kennard is another guy that is going to be counted to help lift this pass rush. He played in every game last season as a freshman and finished the season with two sacks, which both came in the upset victory over North Carolina. Kennard was a member of the 2020 recruiting class and the coaching staff is hoping he can finally put it all together.
