Cover 4 on Georgia: Who is the next fan favorite on the team?

DawgNation has four staffers who cover Georgia football from every angle: Beat, live streams, photos, podcasts, recruiting, etc. The “Cover 4” concept here is simple: 1) Present a topic; 2) Offer a reasoned response; 3) Share a brisk statement to support the informed opinion. 4) Pepper the page with big photos to get the big picture. For this edition, we give potential fan-favorite candidates the “Cover 4” look. 

DawgNation returns this week with the “Cover 4” concept which was in our regular story rotation in 2018.

We have four staffers who cover the UGA athletics program on a full-time basis and that means the focus shifts to a timely “Cover 4” look with each of our guys manning the secondary here.

The quick in-and-out game still remains. These takes are designed to come out quicker than former Bulldog Mecole Hardman Jr. ran the 40 this year at the NFL combine.

The fourth “Cover 4” question of the regular season is:

Who is the next fan favorite on the team?    

Former nation’s No. 1 RB prospect Zamir White is trending up to be an impact player for DawgNation this fall. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)

Brandon Adams: Zamir White

The “why” from “DawgNation Daily” here: “It’s perhaps too easy an answer, but every indication I’ve gotten is White is on his way to full health, and a healthy White will be an enormous problem for the rest of college football.“

Look for Richard LeCounte III to carry an even bigger stick for the Georgia defense this fall. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)

Mike Griffith: Richard LeCounte III

The “why” from “On the Beat” here: “Richard has a great personality, is all sorts of fun to interview, and he tells it like it is — oh, and I think he’s going to have a breakout season.”

Dominick Blaylock is going to make a lot of plays for Georgia over the next few years. That is pretty certain. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)

Connor Riley: Dominick Blaylock

The “why” from “Good Day UGA” here: “I know he hasn’t played a down yet. But Blaylock is just a really, really good football player. I think he’s going to make a couple of plays as a freshman and become someone the Georgia fan base really likes.“

Tyler Simmons might inspire a new T-shirt. It will read “Tyler Simmons was in the end zone. Again” after his 2019 season. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)

Jeff Sentell: Tyler Simmons

The Intel here: “My pick seems like college here. Going past candidates like Nakobe Dean, Azeez Ojulari and Nolan Smith for the hipster fave from 2018. Simmons goes mainstream this fall. Gobbles up the yards and his legacy becomes the big play. Not a mystery call.”
