Jake Rowe lists this as one of Georgia’s biggest concerns after spring practice:
Running back depth: We really like the one-two punch at the top of Georgia’s running back room with D’Andre Swift and Brian Herrien. Swift has an argument as the most dynamic ball carrier in the nation and Herrien is more than capable of sharing the load with little or no dropoff. James Cook is an excellent change-of-pace option who can also serve as an offensive weapon/gadget guy.
Beyond those three, though, there are question marks. Zamir White isn’t yet healthy and no one truly knows when he will be back to his old self. Kenny McIntosh isn’t even in Athens yet and when he does arrive, how much of an impact will he make?
The fact that Walter Grant moved over from outside linebacker to give the running back room an extra body validates our concern here. It’s a physical position where an injury or two can really challenge your depth. Swift has a history of nagging injuries and you can bet Smart is crossing his fingers when it comes injuries at this position going forward.
There is something to be said for that. What I wonder is, which would hurt Georgia more, Swift going down with an injury, or Jake Fromm?
