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.
DawgNation continues on this season with the “Cover 4” concept.
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.
These takes are designed to come out quicker than former Bulldog Mecole Hardman Jr. ran the 40 at the NFL combine. The latest “Cover 4” question of the regular season is:
Who has already opened your eyes on this team after just two games?
Brandon Adams: Freshman DT Travon Walker
Travon Walker is already a regular on the defensive line in nickel situations. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
The “why” from “DawgNation Daily” here: “Walker is obviously one of the highest-rated prospects on the roster, but freshmen don’t typically thrive on the defensive line in the SEC. The fact that Walker has been as involved as he has through two games suggests he’s not the typical freshman.”
Mike Griffith: Grad transfer TE Eli Wolf
Wolf had four catches for 74 yards against Murray State. Watch him work. He’s faster than most might think. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
The “why” from “On the Beat” here: “It was hard to imagine UGA getting Isaac Nauta level play from a TE who had 10 career targets, but Wolf is actually faster than Nauta and has filled a void.“
Connor Riley: Freshman OLB Nolan Smith
