Georgia Bulldogs, Quarterback
Jacob Eason, Jake Bentley, Jalen Hurts and Shea Patterson are all capable of putting together a run that would earn them a spot on this list, but it won’t be easy.
Every SEC team, from mighty Alabama to the perceived 2017 title contenders to those simply rebuilding and aiming to be bowl-eligible could use a luck-filled wish on St. Patrick's Day to carry them through the year.
This is the exact scenario that the Bulldogs need. Competition often brings out the best in great athletes, and if there is anyone capable of helping Jacob Eason tap into his massive potential it’s Jake Fromm.
There is no clear-cut favorite in the SEC East this season. Georgia is the trendy pick and might have the most talented roster. If the Bulldogs are going to take the next step and make a return to Atlanta, they will need a strong spring. Here are 10 topics to follow as practice starts March 21.
Brice Ramsey wants to play, which is understandable. However, getting Jake Fromm ready quickly behind Jacob Eason just became more of a priority for Georgia.
Kirby Smart and Georgia are quickly gaining ground with elite prospects, but if the Bulldogs don’t start winning on the field, they will lose their best pitch on the recruiting trail.
All 28 coordinators in the SEC will leave their imprint in 2017, but six stand out as potentially having the greatest impact on this coming season.
When Saturday Down South asked Georgia receiver Isaiah McKenzie at the Scouting Combine about his pre-draft evaluation from the NFL, his response was a bit alarming. That and more from Day 2 in Indianapolis.
For SEC teams looking to take the next step, there are some players who will need to perform at a higher level this fall.
If everything goes according to plan, Georgia should be returning to Atlanta for the first time since its heartbreaking loss to Alabama in 2012.
