What is the biggest upcoming position battle on the Georgia football team?
Brandon Adams: Left tackle
The “why” from “DawgNation Daily” here: “If a left tackle emerges that allows UGA to move Jamaree Salyer back to the guard spot full time, then the Bulldogs might truly have a championship-caliber offensive line.”
Mike Griffith: The “X” receiver position
The “why” from “On the Beat” here: “No one can or will fill George Pickens’ shoes, but now one wonders who will step into that feature receiver role. Jermaine Burton and Justin Robinson have both taken reps there, but with them injured Adonai Mitchell assumed the role at G-Day. Might the opening day “X” not yet be on the roster?“
Connor Riley: Left tackle
The “why” from “Good Day UGA” here: “Whoever ends up starting at left tackle, whether it be Salyer, Xavier Truss, Broderick Jones, etc. is going to have the biggest impact on Georgia’s ceiling.”
Jeff Sentell: No. 1 cornerback
The Intel here: “Which new face will draw Clemson’s top receiver in September? Will that be the same guy who shadows the No. 1 receiver for the Gators in Jacksonville? Jalen Kimber and Ameer Speed got the first-team looks at G-Day. Can Kelee Ringo emerge? It seems like each one of those guys has an edge in a different skill set the position calls for. Let’s also not forget about the lure of the transfer portal here. If I had to pick today, I’d say that would be the ultra-athletic and playbook-savvy Kimber.”
