Quite simply, is this kid ($$) ready to step up and be a contributor?
Demetris Robertson cut a lonely visual in the Georgia locker room after the Sugar Bowl. He sat at his locker in a corner, putting his unused jersey, unused pants and unused cleats in a bag. He did not play in the Sugar Bowl, a fitting ending to a shockingly quiet season.
“It was a learning experience, mostly,” Robertson said. “I already knew my position coming into the season. Learning the playbook. Talking to coaches about playing more special teams, things like that.”
He left out blocking, which, to my eyes, was the biggest thing keeping him off the field last season. There’s no question he’s a gifted receiver who has the speed to take the top off a defense, but if he can’t block a lick, there’s not much use for him in Georgia’s offensive scheme.
He comes off in Seth’s article as composed and sharp, so hopefully he knows what’s ahead for him if he wants to play a major role in 2019. Lord knows there’s a place for him.
