Kirby is surprisingly bullish on his wide receivers group this season.
“I am pleased with their work ethic,” Smart said. “We don’t have that dominant, back-shoulder size that Javon Wims, who was a really good wideout for us. We don’t have that guy yet, but we have a lot of guys who have been very productive. Riley has done a great job this camp. Terry has been hobbled a bit so, through no fault of his own, but he has not been able to do everything. But Tyler Simmons and Jayson Stanley, I cannot say enough about all the things they bring to the table. Are they elite, vertical threats – go up and get it. I do not know about that. But what they are is they are really, really good wideouts who compliment each other and help the rest of the team with special teams.
“I love the demeanor of that room because they compete really hard.”
Not that I blame him.
People are talking mainly about the talent, particularly after the addition of Robertson, but I’m curious to see what Cortez Hankton brings to the table as the new position coach.
Defenses will need to pay for stacking the box to stop the run. Let’s hope Georgia’s got the tools to make that happen.
