Cover 4 on Georgia football: The most improved Bulldog since last season is ….

DawgNation has four staffers who cover Georgia football from every angle: Beat, live streams, photos, podcasts, recruiting, etc. The “Cover 4” concept is: 1) Present a topic; 2) Offer a reasoned response; 3) Share a brisk statement to support the informed opinion. 4) Pepper the page with photos for the big picture. For this edition, we discuss the most improved Bulldogs on the team since last season. 

We all made it back from Broadway to Week ✌️of the 2019 season.

DawgNation continues on with the “Cover 4” concept. It was a regular in our story rotation in 2018.

We have four staffers who cover UGA athletics on a full-time basis. It means the focus shifts to a timely “Cover 4” look with each of our guys manning the secondary here.

The quick in-and-out game still remains. These takes are designed to come out quicker than former Bulldog Mecole Hardman Jr. ran the 40 at the NFL combine.

The seventh “Cover 4” question of the regular season is:

Who is the most improved Bulldog on the team since last season?

Brandon Adams: Trey Hill 

The “why” from “DawgNation Daily” here: “UGA has quietly produced a nice little legacy at center in recent years, and last season’s starter, Lamont Gaillard, was probably one of the more-underrated players in the country. The fact that Hill has stepped in an earned Kirby Smart and Sam Pittman’s trust as quickly as he apparently has means he must’ve been really putting in work behind the scenes.”

Mike Griffith: Isaiah Wilson

The “why” from “On the Beat” here: Wilson knows that his massive 6-foot-7, 340-pound frame makes him a load, but he also recognizes he must work on his feet and his hand skills to become a truly elite OL.”

Connor Riley: Azeez Ojulari

The “why” from “Good Day UGA” here: “When talking about the outside linebackers, Kirby Smart has spoken at length about how well Ojulari played this spring. He looked good in the bowl game against Texas and as he’s continued to get more confident in his surgically repaired knee, he’s become a better player.”

Matt Landers-Georgia football-UGA football” width=”3714″ height=”2476″ /> Matt Landers is really starting to come into his own at Georgia. He looked like a dominant special teams player at Vanderbilt and was also getting some early reps at receiver. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)

Jeff Sentell: Matt Landers

The Intel here: “When Smart spoke on Monday about how far Landers had progressed, he meant it. Landers has flipped his script under receivers coach Cortez Hankton. Going from the guy with the most untapped NFL tools to one of the grinders on special teams. His work ethic there has instilled a toughness. It will lead to a lot of catches this fall.”
