One of the interesting aspects of evaluating Jamie Newman’s transition from Wake Forest to Georgia is trying to figure out whether the net rise in talent level between the schools for which he’s suited up outweighs that of the competition he’s facing.
Here’s one element to factor in.
Honestly, in that regard, Wake wasn’t too bad allowing 23 sacks in 2019, ranking fourth in the conference. (How much of that could be chalked up to Newman’s mobility?) Still, by comparison, Georgia was 5th nationally in sacks allowed per game, while Wake was 44th. He’s clearly getting a boost, protection-wise.
