The Georgia Bulldogs have a lot to prepare for in the game against the top-ten ranked Boise State Broncos in Atlanta.
Here are three hot issues that the Bulldogs need to answer in fall camp:
1. Offensive Line Rotation
If there was one word to describe the Georgia offensive line, it would be attrition. Both Brent Benedict and AJ Harmon transferred, and Trinton Sturdivant went down with another knee injury that will keep him off the field in 2011. Two returnees in Cordy Glenn and Ben Jones will anchor this line, but outside of those two players, it gets a little hazy. Kenarius Gates, Chris Burnette and Justin Anderson are the other projected starters on this line. Depth is paper thin, but the front five could be okay. The Dawgs need to build some depth in fall camp.
2. Running Back Rotation
The running backs have also experienced attrition as well. Washaun Ealey has now transferred to Jacksonville State, and Caleb King is now gone as well. Bulldog fans are hoping Isaiah Crowell can step up in a big, big way. Along with Crowell, Richard Samuel and Ken Malcome look to be the backups. This inexperience is very concerning for Georgia fans. The running game has to be better this year.
3. Name Starting Nose Tackle
Everyone expects JUCO transfer John Jenkins to walk right in and take over the nose tackle position on this team. However, let’s not forget Kwame Geathers’ ability to play this position as well. I mean, both players are going to play a crucial role in this year’s defense, but it will be fun to see who the bigger difference maker will be at nose guard for Todd Grantham’s 3-4 defense.
