Davis' spring improvement

The Georgia wideout refines skills, speed during spring

Reggie Davis hasn’t put up the type of receiving numbers in Georgia’s two scrimmages as fellow receivers Justin Scott-Wesley, Malcolm Mitchell and Isaiah McKenzie, but still drew a mention from receivers coach Bryan McClendon this week for his spring showing.

“Playing receiver is just not about catching the ball,” Davis said. “It’s about blocking. You may run a route knowing you’re not getting the ball, but you still have to do it to protect your teammate. I feel like I’ve gotten better overall.”

Davis, who had six catches for 63 yards last season, said he’s working on being “more explosive laterally.”

The junior has always been one of the fastest players on the team.

Asked if he has the same speed as Chris Conley, the former Georgia receiver who clocked a 4.35 40-yard dash at the NFL combine. “Yeah, I do,” Davis said matter of factly.

This and that

Keyon Brown’s move from outside linebacker to the defensive end has continued as the spring winds down ….Cornerback Devin Bowman was not spotted at practice Thursday, but Georgia did not provide an update on if he was out with an injury. …Tailback Keith Marshall practiced for the second straight time without limitations. He had missed five practices with a hamstring injury. …Coach Mark Richt called Thursday’s practice a “sloppy day” for the offense. He said the defense practiced harder.
