Legge's Thoughts: UGA Insider Practice Report

ATHENS - More movement at QB for the Bulldogs today, but new player joins the fold at RB.

Georgia’s quarterbacks certainly look better than they did this time last year in terms of just throwing the football. Today it was Jacob Eason’s day to run with the No. 1 unit, and he some deep balls short and missed slightly here and there on some other throws. Eason had what I would describe as a perfectly fine day, but it wasn't exceptional. I didn’t see Brice Ramsey, who went with the No. 3s, miss a throw. Greyson Lambert went with the No. 2 unit today. 

All three threw the deep balls pretty well. All three threw the intermediate vertical ball well. The group seems to be improved from what we saw in the spring for sure - it feels like a massive move forward from last fall. 

Nick Chubb clearly has the top body control of all of the running backs. His lower-body control during a drill near the end zone put the other running backs to shame. The younger guys, like Elijah Holyfield or Brian Herrian, run through the drill with too much pace. It was the sort of drill that you would see a running back literally handle during a game. The type of drill where a running back can’t just rocket forward, but has to produce some wiggle in the hole. Chubb looked great at doing that.

Holyfield appeared to be one of the last running backs to go during fundamental drills. Tae Crowder was running with the No. 2 unit today. The other bigger news was that Sony Michel got a fair amount of work today in the handoff department. This was the first day, he pretty well conditioned most of the first two days of camp, where he was with the skill guys working. 

Terry Godwin snatched a fabulous one-handed catch during the pass drills. He seems like he’s clearly UGA’s No. 1 option at WR. Javon Wims appeared to have a hand injury that didn’t seem super serious during passing drills. 

The guy who stood out to me during defensive line drills was Michael Carter. He’s smaller, but I would expect him to give good reps when he’s in during games. You see a guy in Julian Rochester who could develop into a quality force in the middle of the defense, but he’s got to get into condition. 

In addition, the Bulldogs were once more showing multiple defensive fronts - some of them not super conventional in nature.
