Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones led the SEC in quarterback sacks last season.
The bad news for opposing offenses is Jones believes he can get even better in the outside linebacker position in 2012.
The desire to improve is one reason why Jarvis Jones didn't even think about leaving for the NFL draft after his redshirt sophomore season.
Head coach Mark Richt says the junior from Columbus has been a leader since he transferred from USC.
Richt says Jones led the scout team two years ago when he had to sit out under transfer rules and Jones decision to return was big influence on his fellow players.
Jarvis Jones said. "That is why I came back to become a better student of the game. Learn more about the game. Preparation, tendencies, more techniques. Become DeMarcus Ware's and the Dwight Freeney's. That is where I am trying to take my game to."
Mark Richt said. "We had 10 guys put their papers in to check the waters in the NFL. 9 out of 10 decided to stay. That was a big deal for us and I thought that was tremendous leadership as well."
Georgia opens the season September 1st in Athens against Buffalo.
Game time is 12:21 on the SEC Network and WALB-NBC.
