Hey, it’s less than two weeks ’til the opener, so why not take a stab at it?
My short take on their picks is that the front seven is ridiculously loaded (Kirby’s gonna be able to rotate to his heart’s desire) and the secondary, not so much. And even with that, I find that my cornerback anxiety has calmed somewhat, mainly because it sounds like Kendrick has lived up to expectations so far. Depth at safety and STAR is a concern because of Tykee Smith’s health, but it’s comforting that Brini has followed up his excellent performance in the bowl game with a solid preseason.
And if this is true…
As we said prior to camp, Anderson should probably just have his own role. He’s going to see some action at the STAR/nickel position. He’s also going to rush from the edge, specially on obvious passing downs. Anderson will probably get some traditional snaps at the JACK linebacker position, too. UGA is going to try and get him on the field as much as possible.
… somebody’s about to have a monster season.
