- I am not so arrogant as to declare Georgia’s roster from top to bottom being on the same level as Alabama’s (although the gap narrows), but I’m confident that one area where things are even is the offensive line. Andrew Thomas will leave after this season as a likely top-five NFL draft pick and the o-line won’t miss a beat. I don’t know if Sam Pittman is Georgia’s best assistant coach hire of the 21st century, but I can’t think of one that’s had a greater positive impact in such a short period of time.
- If, as Rowe writes, “the slot receiver position is key in Coley’s offense because of the option routes and two-way go’s”, color me still a little nervous about the position.
- That being said, between need and talent, at least one of Georgia’s incoming true freshman receivers is going to wind up being a major contributor this season.
- The most troubling note from both pieces? This: “… (Jordan) Davis being somewhat out of shape at the start of spring drills”. I hope that isn’t a precursor to a season long struggle to contribute.
- If there’s a surprise, it’s Mark Webb clawing his way to the top of the two-deep at the nickel position. Looks like that’s gonna be a battle all season long.
- Stephenson at two at one of the cornerback spots isn’t a surprise to me, though, given how confident he looked at G-Day.
- Given the depth at safety, I don’t expect Cine to crack the starting lineup this season, but he’ll be there in 2020. Good looking player.
Overall, crazy depth.
