ATHENS — Georgia football put full pads on Tuesday for the first time in fall camp, and Kirby Smart turned his players loose on one another.
Junior Ben Cleveland said it didn’t make much difference for the offensive and defensive lines.
“We don’t really (differentiate), the last two days in shells, that’s full pads for us, we don’t know a difference,” Cleveland said.
“All we know are that our legs and knees are restricted a little bit more, so, it’s pretty live going out through there beating and banging on everybody.”
Full pads make more of a difference for the skill position players, though, as it’s their first chance to prove their mettle with all-out force.
The Georgia film crew was ready, providing drone shots that will get the pulses pumping on Bulldogs’ fans.
