If I have a real comfort level with any position group at Georgia right now, it’s the defensive line. Depth, talent and a good position coach who sounds like he’s not fretting so much as figuring out which pieces he likes putting together best:
“Everybody would like to have a rotation, but right now I think we’re just trying to see where everybody fits in. Because when we started out we gave everyone a clean slate. So we’re trying to see: Where does this guy fit, where does this guy fit?”
I mean, does this sound like a man who’s concerned about somebody he demoted to third-string at one point in the spring?
“Ray’s gonna be fine. Ray’s gonna peak at the right time for us. I don’t worry. Ray’s played in a lot of games, so he will be a factor for us in the fall.”
If these guys stay healthy, I think Rocker will keep ’em hungry. Depth already looks decent across the line and that’s before Lorenzo Carter shows up. The big question will be how much can this bunch cover for what looks to be a shaky secondary.
