Seth Emerson takes a stab at predicting next season’s two-deep on offense here. My overall impression? Georgia looks to be fine at the skill positions and anywhere from a work in progress to downright scarifying on the line.
The good news is that if Gurley verbals today, the backfield looks pretty stout – stout enough that Emerson predicts a few more offseason departures may be in the works. And it’s gratifying to see the depth that’s been developed at wide receiver. Tight end won’t be the strength it was this past year, but it will still be important.
And that’s because the line still looks shaky (how many years in a row have I said that now?). I think Theus is close to a lock to start, simply because I don’t think there’s anyone else ready to play the position competently. And if Beard turns out to be ready to play, my bet is that Burnette moves to center, because I’m not sure Andrews is big enough to handle the position. Right tackle makes me a little nervous, too.
