Georgia’s fall practice starts later this week. (And there was much rejoicing.) Here’s hoping that it will herald a time when we can get back to some degree of normalcy at the blog and focus way less on conference realignment.
In that spirit, Seth Emerson has taken a stab at a defensive depth chart here ($$). I wouldn’t say it’s full of surprising developments (the first name on the list is Jordan Davis at nose tackle); rather, it reinforces the general perception of the front seven’s stability and the secondary’s… uh… not so much stability.
More than that, though, what really comes across is the depth across the board, even in the backfield. The vast majority of it is home grown, but make no mistake about Kendrick’s and Smith’s arrivals. Maybe there’s a question about their starting chances (like Seth, I don’t believe that’s really in doubt), but there’s no question that Smart has done a good job of shoring up the number of bodies who can legitimately contribute in pass coverage.
