DN90: Former UGA WR expects Dominick Blaylock to ‘continue to fight,’ make major comeback

Dominick Blaylock is one of Georgia’s most popular players, and fans were devastated to hear this week that the sophomore wide receiver had re-injured his knee, but Terrence Edwards, the most productive wide receiver in UGA history, joined DawgNation Daily this week to say that Blaylock’s latest injury setback won’t define how he’ll eventually be remembered with the Bulldogs.

Edwards predicts that Blaylock will return stronger than ever in 2021.

That comeback will require an intense mental focus from Blaylock because he’ll essentially be repeating the rigorous process he’s been going through the past year, but Edwards says Blaylock has the structure in place in his life to encourage him towards that end.

That could be good news for Blaylock and the Bulldogs in 2021, but Blaylock’s absence this season creates a void that needs to be filled.

Edwards believes there are candidates that can step up.

“You’ve got some veterans there,” Edwards said. “Kearis Jackson is one that’s going to be a great leader in that room. Demetris Robertson is another guy who has played a lot of football and is going to be a leader. And George Pickens too.”

Edwards says UGA will need to lean on that trio’s experience to help bring along a talented crop of freshman receivers — including four four-star signees from the 2020 class.

In other words, there are no shortage of unanswered questions about the Bulldogs receivers, but the talent is there to potentially provide emphatic answers.

Blaylock’s injury undoubtedly is disappointing news for UGA fans, and it creates an additional challenge for the Bulldogs in the short term. However, the ingredients are also in place Blaylock and the rest of the UGA receivers’ stories to eventually conclude with a happy ending.
