The most interesting question for each position group as Georgia enters final stretch of spring practice
Quarterback: Can Carson Beck emerge as the No. 2 quarterback?
By all accounts, Beck had a strong performance in this past Saturday’s scrimmage for Georgia. While he lacks the game experience that Stetson Bennett does, Beck has a greater upside. If he’s able to translate that potential into a few more strong performances over Georgia’s final five spring practices, he could make a strong case to be Georgia’s No. 2 quarterback come the 2021 season.

JT Daniels is clearly entrenched as the start. Freshman Brock Vandagriff is still trying to adjust to the speed of the college game, as Beck himself was as a freshman.
How Beck and Bennett play on G-Day could be very telling for the future of the Georgia quarterback position, and not just in 2021 but potentially 2022 and beyond.
Running back: Can Kendall Milton close the gap on veteran running backs?
Zamir White and James Cook don’t have much to prove this spring. They’re clear leaders at the position and the coaching staff knows what they bring to the table.
Come G-Day, most of the attention at the running back position will be on Milton. He’s easily one of the most popular players on the team and he showed some impressive flashes during his freshman season.
Depth figures to be an issue for the position group on G-Day. While the development of the position is still paramount, Georgia really can’t afford to lose any more bodies at the position for at least the rest of spring practice.
Tight ends: Can this group build off a strong spring?
While we’ve focused on individuals at quarterback and running back, we can’t quite do that at this position as a trio of tight ends have all earned consistent praise this spring.
Sophomore Darnell Washington has really improved as far as the mental aspects of the game while continuing to use his Hulk-Esque 280-pound frame. Brock Bowers has been one of the few early enrollees to earn consistent praise this spring.
And Daniels had some very encouraging words to say about the improvements made by John FitzPatrick.
