Now an upperclassman, Dantzler has an opportunity to showcase his all-round game on the brightest stage.
Coming off a respectable sophomore campaign, Dantzler is a proven lockdown corner and matchup nightmare for opposing wideouts. That said, Dantzler will have his work cut out for him. As he will up against names such as Alabama’s Jerry Jeudy, LSU’s Justin Jefferson Kentucky’s Lynn Bowden Jr., and Tennessee’s Marquez Callaway, to name a few, Dantzler has the speed, size and physicality to neutralize the opposition.
In addition, Dantzler will have to take chances. Many of the SEC’s star wideouts are freak athletes. But if anybody can shut them down, it is the man who did not let a single wideout find the end zone. However, it is a new year and Dantzler is the face of a revamped defensive backfield that has big shoes to fill.
Dantzler will be heavily relied on as a leader. He has the personality but must be a vocal presence in the locker room. The Bulldogs are known for their defense year after year and have a rich history at defensive back. Expect big things from Dantzler this season.
