Editor’s note: With Georgia set to open preseason camp Thursday, DawgNation will break down each position group and the storylines to watch in August. After examining the offensive positions earlier this week, we shifted to the defensive line yesterday and today will examine the linebackers.

Jarvis Jones could probably be a millionaire by now. But instead of bolting for the NFL after a standout sophomore season where he led the SEC in sacks and tackles for loss, the Georgia outside linebacker decided his game still needs work before he turns pro.
