Milner: There's always room for improvement

ATHENS – Martrez Milner spoke with Dean Legge for a short time after one of Georgia's fall practices.

Dean Legge: Tell me about this week. I know it's been hard dealing with the Florida loss. A win would virtually lock up the SEC East this weekend.

Martrez Milner: It means a lot to us. It means a lot because last year they really whipped us hands down. This year with the SEC East and West, this game could be the one that locks it up for us.

Is it going to be hard not to watch TV this weekend before the game?

Its going to be hard not to. LSU and Alabama are playing, too. But we have to get focused on Auburn – we can't overlook Auburn. We can't worry about next week. We have to worry about this week.

Who has been the most impressive freshman to you?

Mohamed Massaquoi – by far.

Is there anyone close?

Close to Mohamed? (Long pause) C.J. Byrd on special teams.

Is Byrd the hardest hitting guy that's young?

Yes. He kind of reminds me of Kelin Johnson last year on special teams. Both of them are wild-hitting safeties. It looks good for our future there.

How about your situation as far as the rest of the season is concerned – what do you hope to accomplish the rest of the season?

I hope to be known as a tight end that can receive and see the ball as well as block. Last year was not a good year for me. I didn't have an impressive year and I wanted to do better. There is always room for improvement.

Have you thought about playing in the NFL after this season?

Not after this season. People ask me, but I am saying no.
