One last preseason projection: the 2019 offense

Jake Rowe posts his final call on Georgia’s offensive roster here.  I find the exercise interesting in that he factors in what he’s heard and season from practice.

While there aren’t a lot of shocks, it’s worth noting a few tidbits.

  • Between White’s health and McIntosh’s emergence, the running backs as a group appear to be deeper than ever.  Best thing about that is it allows the coaches to bring White along cautiously.
  • I’m guardedly optimistic about the tight ends, but Woerner’s another player I worry about from an injury standpoint.
  • Matt Landers running at #1 X-receiver is either going to give me a lot of wow moments early on… or more than a few groans, based on what I saw at G-Day.  Here’s hoping it’s plenty more of the former.
  • Robertson in the slot has the chance to benefit from a lot of mismatches.
  • I know it goes without saying, but, damn, that offensive line depth…

Your thoughts?

    McIntosh has definitely been under the radar. I agree if White is truly 100%, this looks to be the deepest backfield maybe ever.



    Say it again, White will be backing up Swift by UF game.

      Maybe, but Herrien, Cook and McIntosh will get their shots as well. The problem comes when we need to have each one in the game long enough that they can get their rhythm and muscle memory going with the flow. It’s a great problem to have, if you aren’t one of those good RBs looking for playing time.

    I really hope Brian Herrien has a very good year. Not because I think we will need him, but because he’s more than earned it after all the time and hard work he’s put in.

    Can’t you just see him falling in the 4th-5th round of the draft and having a nice NFL career?

      I agree. Herrien is one of my favorite Dawgs. He busted his butt to even get eligible, and now he’s done well in school and on the field. I hope he has a good year, gets drafted and cashes in. He has earned it.

      Herrien’s flexibility and work ethic will earn him playing time, whether he lines up at tailback, slot, or on special teams.

      It also gives him more opportunities to make a limited 53-man NFL roster.

      He is the ‘Charlie Culberson’ of this team.

    Well, if Landers does have problems I’m not sure he’ll get another chance with Bush and Pickens ready to step in.

    These 6’3″, 6’4″, 6’5″+ WRs will give defenders fits!

    Salyer not in the 2-deep. Webb likely on scout team. Somebody has built a wall.

    As someone who has always believed that championships are won in the trenches, this o-line makes me a happy, happy dawg! The possibility/probability that talents and beasts like Mays and Salyer won’t start due to depth is something I have only dreamed of. Outside of the past two years, those guys would likely be the best two lineman on any UGA team of the last 20 years. Just tell me where to send my contribution to the “Keep Pittman Forever Fund”.

      Just have them all over for steaks. You can safely bet two steaks each for these guys, but you may want to make Wilson’s two in the Texas chateaubriand class (each is a center-cut sirloin that’s the size of two large sirloins).

    What’s so amazing to me is that what used to be a liability (the OL) is now the strength of the team.
