Another offensive depth chart update

Jake Rowe is back, “(u)sing all the information we’ve gathered to this point” to update things on the offensive side of the ball.  No surprise at this point that Mathis has moved to the top of the QB list, but there are a few other changes worth mentioning here:

  • “White and Cook have been excellent this preseason. If the buzz is any indication of how they’ll play, the Bulldogs transition at running back should go pretty smoothly.”  Okay, that’s not a change per se, but it’s still a nice confirmation that maybe Monken is going to make better use of Cook’s skill set.
  • “… and early on in camp we felt Robinson would be the guy to spell him. But the freshman early enrollee has tapered off some late in preseason practice while Rosemy has really come on.”  Not really a surprise in that all of the true freshmen receivers are bound to have their ups and downs in the early going.
  • On the other hand… “We’ve had Burton listed as a slot receiver most of the way but he was the flanker with the first-team for most of the third scrimmage. He also had his best scrimmage with big plays against two experienced Georgia cornerbacks. There’s some buzz to suggest that he might be a little ahead of Landers at this point but both are likely to play.”
  • “We felt for the longest time that Robertson might move back to the outside as a senior but we’re now told that he has been getting a lot of work in the slot.”  Color me a little disappointed by this, as I think Robertson is better suited for the outside, but Rowe is probably onto something when he suggests the move may be triggered by the Blaylock injury.
  • “Hill is the starter at this spot and came into camp with a few kinks to work out. The biggest was his struggles with shotgun snapping but based on what we’ve heard, that hasn’t been a problem.”  That is good to hear, to put it mildly.
  • Raise your hand if you saw this coming before the preseason:  “It’s going to take one heck of a development for Condon not to be Georgia’s right tackle. He split first-team reps with McClendon in the first scrimmage but he has been the No. 1 right tackle in the past two scrimmages. Sources indicate that he is getting better and better at that spot, especially when it comes to pass protection and playing with power. One thing that really helped him was his ability to learn and adapt to the new offense.”

Anything else worth noting?

    Yes, but how are we at the long snappah position?

    Really surprised by Condon. Good for that kid.

    And as much as I b!tch about Hill, I’m glad his snapping issues haven’t surfaced.

    I would say that Salyer and Condon are getting tested as much in practice as they will anywhere else. With the outside pressure that Johnson, Nolan Olajari, Herring etc I cant imagine who can throw much more at them. They are seeing all kinds of different rushes from very talented dudes. They are probably looking forward to Ark at this point.

    Re Condon: Critics from other teams try and paint Kirby as a recruiter of raw talent but lacking in player development……but it seems like every season, some 3 star, a guy who was tossed in to his recruiting class as a proverbial stocking stuffer, plays a very substantial role. Hell Condon’s name stood OUT precisely because of how significantly the separation was in “on paper” acclaim between he and his fellow signees. Bravo Condon !

      Good point. I always take notice when Kirby signs a 3-star recruit. Kindley, Rice, Herrien, Stokes, Grant, Marshall, etc. We don’t sign many 3-stars, but we’ve had some great success with them.

    It’s really nice to have really good players, or at least players with really good potential, at all spots. I don’t remember it ever being like this before the last few years.

    Clay Webb. “In the mix” at one guard spot, and that’s it?
