March 21, 2023

ATHENS - Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs are now in full pads for spring practice. Well, the players are at least. 

Last week, we learned a lot about where the wide receivers are at and how they are being grouped up. 

The biggest question surrounds the quarterback room. Has Carson Beck separated himself? Is Brock Vandagriff gaining ground? Is Kirby Smart just saying that Gunner Stockton has a real chance or is he too far back?

This is a defense that is losing only four players who played significant snaps. They lost five in just the first round of the NFL Draft from the 2021 team. Does Georgia’s defense get better?

Will there be any impact freshmen this season?

Here is everything I could gather in about 12 minutes of viewing drills:

  • Quarterbacks
    • Carson Beck is still going first in drills
      • It seems like he is in front for now- it seems like comfortable lead
      • In the limited time media is allotted, he is having the most one-on-one conversations with Mike Bobo
      • The ball comes out smoothly. Smooth is a good way to describe the way he throws the ball
    • Brock Vandagriff
      • Vandagriff goes second in drills
      • He has the most power behind the throw just from a visual standpoint- How much more powerful than Beck? I’m not sure. 
      • I thought he was a little less accurate than Beck throwing on the run
    • Gunner Stockton
      • He was going third behind those guys again
      • He was a little inaccurate in the red zone drill they ran
      • Other than that, he looks comfortable
  • Running Backs
    • Daijun Edwards was out there this time and I did not see any sort of limitation
    • Kendall Milton went first in drills, followed by Branson Robsinson then Edwards
    • Andrew Paul went fourth
      • He is still wearing a knee brace, but he is not wearing a non-contact jersey
    • Roderick Robinson is wearing #0. He has a huge upper body. He is the most uniquely shaped running back out of the group.
      • Maybe that is a fight between him and Branson
  • Wide Recievers
    • Same deal as last week
    • Ladd McConkey, Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint and Arian Smith were working as the first group
    • CJ Smith, Dominic Lovett and Dillon Bell were the second group
    • Rara Thomas is still running in the fourth group
      • He dropped a really easy ball from Vandagriff
    • This wide receiver room has all sorts of different types of talent, but they might not have a true No. 1
  • Tight Ends
    • I did not see freshman Pearce Spurlin out there today
    • Brock Bowers and Oscar Delp are followed by freshman Lawson Luckie in drills
  • Offensive Line
    • It is too hard to tell what the order is
    • They were running a run block drill where three of them at a time went, and there is not much I can take away from that


  • Defensive Line
    • Mykel Williams seems to go first in every drill they do
    • I think from a talent standpoint, the two inside guys are Nazir Stackhouse and Bear Alexander
  • Outside Linebackers
    • Again, this seems like their thinnest group as far as depth goes
    • Chaz Chambliss is definitely the smallest guy
    • Injuries are not a good thing, but Marvin Jones Jr. being out will probably benefit the younger guys in terms of reps
    • Freshmen Samuel M’Pemba and Gabe Harris Jr. are two guys to keep an eye on
      • They both look athletic and explosive
  • Inside Linebackers
    • What is interesting here is that Jamon Dumas-Johnson is not as fast or twitchy as the other guys, yet he was an All-American
    • Watch out for Raylen Wilson. He looks like a problem from an athletic standpoint. Get used to hearing that about a lot of players.
  • Corners
    • Smoke Bouie was working with the outside corners in the time I watched
    • Daylen Everett missed a couple of tackles in a row during a screen pass drill
  • Safeties
    • This is the only group I didn’t get a great look at
    • If the starter next to Malaki Starks ends up being David Daniel-Sisavahn, then that will be a physically thin starting duo
