Earlier this week, Jamaree Salyer and James Cook turned heads by posting highlights from their offseason workouts. Cook showed off his agility skills while working with his older brother, Minnesota Vikings’ running back Dalvin Cook, while Salyer went through his pass-blocking sets.
Salyer caught the attention of Smart in part because he’s slimmed down this offseason, with Smart hinting he’s down to 315 pounds. But Salyer and Cook weren’t the only ones who were putting in work this week.
Cornerback Eric Stokes had a video of himself going through cornerback drills. Stokes is expected to be one of the leaders of Georgia’s secondary this year, as he enters his junior season. Some even have Stokes as a potential top draft pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, thanks to his strong measurables.

Stokes had 38 tackles and nine pass breakups and a forced fumble last season. If there’s one knock against, it’s that he’s yet to record an interception in his Georgia career.
There was also a video posted by Georgia wide receiver Tommy Bush of himself going through drills.
The 6-foot-5 wide receiver is looking to have a bounce-back season for the Bulldogs this season after he missed a majority of the 2019 season due to a sports hernia injury.

Bush signed as a member of Georgia’s 2018 signing class out of Schertz, Texas. He was ranked as the No. 196 overall prospect in the class and the No. 37 ranked wide receiver. He had just one catch in the 2019 season, coming in the final regular-season against Georgia Tech.
Former Georgia wide receiver Terrence Edwards has spoken highly of Bush in the past, and there’s certainly an opportunity for him at Georgia this year. Other than George Pickens, the Bulldogs have a number of questions at the wide receiver position. And Georgia does not have many guys that move as well as Bush that also have his size.
The Bulldogs did sign five wide receivers in the 2020 recruiting class including Marcus Rosemy and Jermaine Burton.
Georgia players may not have to conduct these workouts away from Athens much longer, as the SEC presidents are set to vote on May 22 whether to allow students back on campus on June 1.
