Cover 4: Which young Bulldog will have the best finish to the 2018 season?
DawgNation has four staffers who cover the UGA football team from every angle: Beat, live streams, photos, podcasts, recruiting, etc. The Cover 4 aim is simple: 1) Present a topic; 2) Offer a reasoned response; 3) Share a brisk statement to support the informed opinion.
How many of those young Bulldogs are ready? Have they gotten coached up enough in order to carve out a big chunk of playing time against Georgia Tech and Alabama?
Is there a player on the team that can provide a spark down the stretch?
That is our topic for today.
This Cover 4 question: Which young Bulldog has the best finish to the 2018 season?
These takes are designed to come out even faster than a Georgia football discussion can include the talk of what to do in those goal line situations.
Which young Bulldog will have the best finish to the 2018 season?
Brandon Adams: Freshman DT Jordan Davis
The why from Adams: He has what most of UGA’s defensive linemen are lacking — true size. At 320 pounds, he provides the Bulldogs with the beef they need to stop the run.
Chip Towers: Freshman ILB Channing Tindall
The why from Towers Take: The freshman from Columbia has the opportunity to play a bigger role for the rest of the way. He has developed into a third-down specialist and playing increasingly on other downs and on special teams.
Mike Griffith: Sophomore WR Jeremiah Holloman
The why from On The Beat: Holloman has emerged as Jake Fromm’s favorite target since the bye week, doing his best impression of Javon Wims with his length, speed and work ethic.
Jeff Sentell: Redshirt freshman CB Eric Stokes
Why: Names like Davis and Holloman come to mind. So does Cade Mays. But Stokes is the pick. He has the right combination of intelligence, work ethic and blazing speed to make a difference against Alabama.
