Much of the offseason hoopla about Georgia involves blue-chip quarterback prospect Jacob Eason and the status of Nick Chubb’s surgically-repaired knee.

The barrage of questions are fair, but they somewhat overshadow the great overall talent that first-year coach Kirby Smart inherited when he agreed to succeed Mark Richt and coach at his alma mater.

Here’s a look at Georgia’s 10 best players coming out of the spring.

10. QB Jacob Eason: It’s not if, but just when with the former five-star quarterback prospect. Eason’s arrival in January was a much-anticipated one by Georgia fans and he only added to the hype and soaring expectations with a scintillating 19-for-29, 244-yard, one-touchdown performance in the Spring Game.

Doing it in the fall is another matter entirely, but it’s easy to see why Eason was ranked the nation’s No. 2 pro-style quarterback of the 2016 class and why Bulldogs fans are so excited. It’s only now a matter of when he permanently assumes the keys to the kingdom.

9. TE Jeb Blazevich: The junior provides an inviting target with his 6-foot-5 frame, quick feet and soft hands. Blazevich, a two-year starter, never really fit into former offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer’s system and saw his production drop last year to 15 catches for 144 yards and a touchdown. New OC Jim Chaney figures to use his tight ends much more frequently, so expect to hear Blazevich’s name called early and often.

8. ILB Natrez Patrick: The sophomore came on strong by the end of last season, making starts against Georgia Tech and Penn State to give fans a glimpse of his great promise. A former high school All-American, Patrick continued his strong play this spring, earning defensive Most Improved honors.

7. C Brandon Kublanow: The senior was a second-team All-SEC pick at center a year despite playing both there and at guard. He’ll be at center again this year and will anchor a Georgia offensive line that must play better this fall. Moreover, Kublanow’s ability to quickly recognize opposing defenses will be that much more critical when true freshman quarterback Jacob Eason eventually ascends into the starting role.

6. OLB Davin Bellamy: The junior started just two games in 2015, but made his presence felt whenever on the field with three sacks, nine quarterback hurries and 5.5 tackles for loss. Bellamy registered a team-high seven tackles against Florida last fall to go along with two stops for loss, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He’s poised to assume a bigger role with the loss to Jordan Jenkins and Leonard Floyd to the NFL.

5. WR Terry Godwin: The former five-star recruit came on strong toward the end of last fall, capping his freshman year by capturing MVP honors in the TaxSlayer Bowl win over Penn State after throwing for one touchdown and catching another. Godwin will be the Dawgs’ go-to receiver now that Malcolm Mitchell is gone and could have a breakout year in 2016.

4. WR/KR Isaiah McKenzie: “The Human Joystick” is a home run threat every touches the ball as a receiver or returns a punt or a kick. McKenzie appeared in 10 games last fall, starting three, but missed three games with injury. Keeping him healthy and on the field appears to be a challenge.

3. FS Dominick Sanders: The ball-hawking junior is back to again anchor the Dawgs secondary after earning first-team All-SEC accolades in 2015 by registering a team-high six interceptions to go along with six pass breakups and one sack.

2. RB Nick Chubb: The Georgia staff remains confident that Chubb’s recovery is going as planned or better, but how quickly he can regain the form that made him a first-team All-SEC pick as a freshman in 2014 after rushing for 1,547 yards and 14 touchdowns remains to be seen. When healthy, there are few running backs better.

1. RB Sony Michel: The versatile Michel assumed the bulk of the offensive load following the season-ending knee injury to Nick Chubb and didn’t disappoint, totaling 1,161 yards and eight touchdowns on 219 carries. The junior added 26 receptions for 270 yards and three more scores to earn team offensive MVP honors. Michel could asked be asked to shoulder much of the offensive load early on this fall if Chubb is still on the mend, but knowing he has a guy capable of doing just that comes as a good news for first-year coach Kirby Smart.
