Davis could be deep ball threat 'Dawgs are missing in Mitchell
With Malcolm Mitchell likely out for the season-opener against Clemson, Hutson Mason doesn’t have a home-run threat yet identified.
Mitchell, and Justin Scott-Wesley, who is out for the Clemson game and may not be available for South Carolina two weeks later, are deep ball threats that the Bulldogs missed last year with both out with knee injuries. Michael Bennett is a dependable receiver and route-runner, but doesn’t possess a big-play capability.
There could be answer, though. And his name might be Reggie Davis.
Georgia coaches clocked Davis at a 4.23 hand-held 40, faster than what NFL officials timed any Georgia receiver running last spring during the Pro Day in Athens. That time tied fellow receiver Chris Conley.
Davis, the 6-foot, 175-pound receiver from Tallahassee, Fla. caught 11 passes for 257 and one touchdown in 2013 and is primed for a breakout season in 2014. Expect he and Conley to provide the stretch-the-field threats Mason will need.
