2019 Football Preview – ACC- Yellow Jackets
Looking for 2019 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets predictions? Georgia Tech is going to be one of the hardest teams to forecast this season. They are a Power 5 program so there is talent but maybe no program in America is going through a greater transition. I like the long term outlook but short term pain seems likely.

Even though they will look a lot different on the field I see no reason the Yellow Jackets can’t compete in a division without a dominant team.
2019 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Predictions: Team Strengths
Still Talent Around: It was a classy move by outgoing coach Paul Johnson to say that the roster is full of football players, not option football players.
At first glance that bears out but it will be interesting to see who can step forward.
The new coaching staff is confident that they can run a balanced offense with the players they have.
They think they have pretty good options at quarterback and at receiver but only time will tell. I am optimistic.
Defending the Pass: Juanyeh Thomas is a tremendous athlete who earned freshman All-American honours as a returner. Now he is expected to create big plays in the secondary.
This is the most experienced of all the defensive units and they are going to be leaned upon as the team looks to improve in other areas.
Under the old regime the defense was up and down throughout each cycle. Collins is looking for more consistently high performances.
2019 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Predictions: Team Weaknesses
Transition, Transition, Transition?: It is a brand new day at Tech. Geoff Collins has a vision but only time will tell if it is the right one.
I for one always liked option offenses. Can you win a championship with one I don’t know but doing the same as everybody else never seems the way to get ahead unless you can get the best players.
The biggest challenge is probably up front on the offensive line. They have some holdovers but those guys are really going to have to learn quickly. If it takes time they are toast.
Up front on the other side is another area for concern. GT graduated its best players and if this group can’t hold up it might not give the secondary a chance to be a difference maker.
The same goes for the linebacking group. They are looking for some players to step forward becayse Collins is a defense guy and want to use this group to set the tone.
Georgia Tech is a true unknown which means there could be some opportunities for those who can catch on quickly.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Prediction: 6-6
Collins might be able to get the Yellow Jackets to a bowl game in his first season.
The opener could be a disaster as they are at Clemson. The Tigers are coming off a title and they have to rebuild their defense but that group is elite. What we see in that opener is going to set expectations big time.
Hosting South Florida and Georgia to close to the season look like losses to me. Georgia for sure and the Bulls program is further along than GT right now.
Georgia Tech is lucky to be in a pretty weak division with lots of 50/50 opportunities. If they get some breaks then it is unlikely the bottom is going to fall out of the program. When and how to bet them might be hard to figure out early though.
