WATCH: DawgNation team debates top freshmen, who will be the next Tae Crowder
On this week’s edition of Cover 4 Live, DawgNation members Jeff Sentell, Brandon Adams, Mike Griffith and Connor Riley answered a number of questions regarding the Georgia football team.
They ranged from serious to silly, with names like Matthew Stafford, Larry Munson and Wayne Knight getting sprinkled into the broadcast as well.
Among the topics that came up was which freshman was mostly likely to make a big impact. Riley led off and selected Marcus Rosemy, a 4-star wide receiver from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Given Georgia’s issues with the position in 2019, there’s a strong chance one of the five freshman wideouts can come in and make an early impact. Riley cited the fact that Rosemy shined at the Under Armour All-American Game in Orlando as well as being a star for one of the top high school programs in the country in St. Thomas Aquinas.

Sentell had the next pick and went a little off the board with his pick of kicker Jared Zirkel. The Bulldogs do have to replace icon Rodrigo Blankenship, who held field goal kicking duties for the previous four seasons for the program. Zirkel, along with punter Jake Camarda figure to get the first crack at replacing Blankenship.

Griffith selected 5-star tight end Darnell Washington with his pick. Washington has a case as being the most physically impressive recruit in the class, as he’s listed at 6-foot-7 and 260 pounds. Georgia must replace Eli Wolf and Charlie Woerner at the position, leaving a path for early playing time for the Las Vegas standout.
Lastly, Adams selected Broderick Jones. He’s a 5-star offensive tackle from Lithonia, Ga., and a big reason Georgia ended up signing the No. 1 class in the country. Georgia must replace both of its offensive tackles as Andrew Thomas and Isaiah Wilson went on to NFL.
Another name that came up in the discussion was 5-star defensive tackle Jalen Carter. But the DawgNation team all agreed that there is reason to at least temper expectations with the defensive tackle.
The guys also spoke on who they think an unsung hero for the 2020 team might be, as well as which Georgia related figure they’d like to be quarantined with in their house.
