Cover 4 on Georgia football: The Volunteers to look out for on Saturday
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 biggest weapons that Tennessee will have on the field Saturday in Knoxville.
DawgNation continues with the “Cover 4” concept. The focus is always a timely “Cover 4” look with each of our guys manning the secondary on a pertinent topic.
The quick in-and-out game remains. These takes are designed to come out quicker than former Bulldog Nick Chubb scored his third touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens this year.
The latest “Cover 4” question is:
Which Volunteers will present matchup problems for Georgia on Saturday?
Brandon Adams: The Tennessee defensive backs
The “why” from “DawgNation Daily” here: “Cornerbacks Warren Burrell and Alontae Taylor are a little banged up, but safety Bryce Thompson is back from suspension for a Vols’ secondary that’s played a little better than you might realize. They’re second in the SEC in passing yards allowed (190 per game).”
Mike Griffith: WR Jauan Jennings, WR Marquez Callaway and DE Darrell Taylor
The “why” from “On the Beat” here: “Jennings and Callaway are big WR targets, both taller and thicker than projected starting Georgia corners DJ Daniel and Eric Stokes. Jennings might also line up at quarterback. Taylor (6-4, 255) is a talented edge rusher who sacked Fromm 3 times last season and forced 2 fumbles.“
Connor Riley: WR Jauan Jennings, WR Marquez Callaway and LB Henry To’oto’o
The “why” from “Good Day UGA” here: “Georgia’s banged up at corner right now and Jennings and Callaway are both good enough to take advantage of a hobbled secondary. As for To’oto’o, he’s been one of the few real bright spots for this Tennessee team in 2019.“
Jeff Sentell: WR Jauan Jennings
The Intel here: “The Intel you pick up on the Vols is their run game hasn’t really came alive yet this year. The storyline with former 5-star OL Trey Smith is intriguing since he’s playing almost the entire game right now. In the end, it is Jennings. He’s their top playmaker (298 yards, 4 TDs) on a team that could certainly use a few more on offense. How healthy will Georgia’s secondary be this week to check him? “
