Quick Hitters from Spring Scrimmage

Georgia had a scrimmage at Sanford stadium today. Several players stood out. Here are some of Dawgpost's observations from practice and the scrimmage.

* Danny Ware missed practice with a slight knee injury. He will be back on Tuesday and said his knee injury was not serious.

* Bryan McClendon and T.J. Gartrell both made some nice long catches. McClendon looked the most impressive of the wide receivers.

* Speaking of wide receives, after going through drills at the quarterback position, A.J. Bryant ran some routes in the scrimmage at both wide receiver and slot receiver. The ball was not thrown his way.

* Tyson Browning made a nice catch on a fade from Joe Tereshinski.

* Des Williams shined at the fullback position during the inside running drills.

* Kregg Lumpkin also moved piles during the inside running drills. During the scrimmage, Lumpkin ripped off two 20+ yard runs. He limped off the field after the second one, but he returned after a brief rest and quickly picked up another 15 yard gain.

* The best defensive back on the day was Tim Jennings without question. Paul Oliver made some good plays and was very physical, but Jennings was head and shoulders better than everyone else in the defensive backfield on Friday.

* Gerald Anderson was unstoppable during individual drills, and he also looked good during the scrimmage. Quentin Moses also made some nice plays, and asking around Will Thompson has been very impressive this spring as well. the defensive end position is in very good hands.

* The tight ends struggled a bit during individual drills, but Leonard Pope made two very nice catches with his hands during the scrimmage. He is an absolutely huge target on the field, and if he continues to develop his hands, he is going to be a weapon this season.

Here are some pictures from practice today:
