Dean's List: Offensive Players - #3

Dean Legge counts down Georgia's five most important offensive players of the 2013 season.

Hard work is undervalued – you don't get accolades for it. But if there was a star-rating scale for self-made football players at Georgia, David Andrews would certainly be a five-star.

The natural tendency is to compare players to those who played their position before them. Ben Jones seemed like the best center Georgia was going to have for a long time. But Andrews came along and has been a steady cog in the Georgia offensive line. There was no real visual falloff form Jones' departure to the Houston Texans (as a starting guard no less… think about that – Andrews is probably still undervalued by Georgia fans).

Why is Andrews so important? If he's not playing center – working with Aaron Murray to identify what's what in front of the Bulldogs – Chris Burnette or Dallas Lee would play center, and the shifts would be on. But it's not just that; Andrews isn't just filling a spot at center. He's probably the best lineman at Georgia at any particular given position on the line.

Andrews isn't about upside; He's not about looking pretty. Andrews is just about whipping your ass, and that's just what you want in an offensive lineman.
