Who will step up at receiver for Georgia in 2015?

Round two of the Georgia bloggers’ roundtable discussion can be found here.

Pretty fair to say there’s a consensus around Isaiah McKenzie and the tight ends.

Oh, yeah.  And spring injuries.

    I have not given up on Davis, Tibbs, and Towns. I’m expecting this guys plus Williams, Hegedus and the new recruits to provide some depth and maybe impact. You know how you get that one player in your mind that you think may have that break-out moment. For me that’s Davis. He has the speed, if things will just click with him.

    I know it was a WR question…but from a ‘passing game’ perspective, Michel, Chubb, and Marshall will probably ‘contribute’ too.

    The WR position reminds me a little of 11-12 when you had T King and Orson Charles as the only real established pass catchers. That year you had a RS Fr in Bennett and two true freshman in Mitchell and Conley step into the spotlight. Only Mitchell in that group was better than a 3 star recruit.

    No worries here. McClendon has proven to be a fine coach. He’s been able to get production from his players, even in difficult conditions like injuries, suspensions, etc.

    And with his incredible recruiting track record, is there any doubt he’s zeroing in on the top 2 or 3 WR recruits in the country for 2016.

  4. QBs and WRs go hand-in-hand, and both groups are up in the air. That’s concerning. TEs are going to be huge if UGA has any hopes of winning the East/SEC.

    The TEs. It’s going to be a traditional kind of year.

    Well, let’s just wait until CMR’s annual unveiling of his latest DB turned WR experiment……

      Yep, because we shouldn’t exhibit any flexibility to cover needs for the good of the team. 🙂 It is also pretty normal to find a handful of recruits who played both positions in HS and came to college torn by which way was best for them. We have an overload at DB relative to WRs, Godwin will make just one more. I hope someone is able to help at multiple positions, I have yet to see a year that circumstance hasn’t been needed.

        hopefully, you’re not a recruiter on the UGA staff?

          I think all recruiters tap dance on this issue by telling recruits what they want to hear but mentioning that they will find the right position for them to best develop their talents for the next step. Not uncommon at all, and I think UGA has lost players because we rarely guarantee them a specific spot (Cam Newton, anyone?). Often they mention the player will get a “trial” at offense, if they like/insist on that but we are pretty honest with them. I think dealing with the team concept above the “I” is the correct way. 18 year olds that cannot deal with reality and honesty will usually fall flat in other areas anyway.

        I am all for this practice…as long as it doesn’t reach Richard Samuel proportions. I still don’t think they did that kid right.

          Like other DGDs, Richard, the team man, can always fall back on a staff position if the going gets bad. That’s the least we could do. And he certainly is plugged into the UGA network.

          You never know, it didn’t work out for RS. He was a DGD, but straight line speed doesn’t work so great for football players in this day and age. I hope he ends some successful in some career and it was some Dawg Alum that gave him a chance because he laid it out for the team. I will never forget the FU and Arky games for him.

    In answer to your question, Senator: Tibbs.
