Malcolm Mitchell is tied for sixth in the SEC in receiving yards with 617 on 43 catches.
The Georgia senior was added Monday to the Biletnikoff Award Watch list for an award that goes to the nation’s top wide receiver, but he would seem to be unlikely to make the cut to the 10 semifinalists given how run-centric Georgia’s offense seems to be now.
Georgia passed for just 90 yards against Kentucky Saturday when it used wildcat runs.
“I think at this point in my career, it’s all about doing whatever wins the game,” said Mitchell, who had four catches for 52 yards Saturday. “If that means I can’t finish off with 10 receptions, 100-some yards (a game), that’s fine with me. I think when I do have my opportunities if I take advantage of them, it won’t go unnoticed.”
Mitchell is fifth in program history with 159 career catches and seventh in receiving yards with 2,102.

Sean White was out injured. Malzahn said it’s possible both quarterbacks could play…Defensive lineman Trenton Thompson played sparingly against Kentucky due to a sprained ankle. “W e didn't want to go the whole game with him if we could help it,” Richt said. “Try to keep him going and learning and getting better and all that, but also try not to put too much stress on his ankles. He's getting better. He's still not 100 percent, but he'll be practicing and he'll be ready to play. ” … Georgia wide receiver Reggie Davis practiced in a non-contact jersey Tuesday. Richt has said that Davis had “more of a headache” than a concussion against Kentucky and expected him to be “fine” for Saturday.
