Kendall's Take: Looking ahead to 2006

ATHENS - Josh Kendall ahead to the 2006 season.

Starters gone: Five offense, Six defense

Top needs: The Bulldogs needed linebackers, linemen and wide receivers and addressed two of those needs emphatically. Georgia signed four linebackers, which will help on special teams mostly at least early on. It signed six offensive linemen and five defensive linemen, which should help alleviate the depth problems that the Bulldogs have had on both lines since Richt arrived. The downside is at wide receiver, where only two could be coaxed into the fold.

He's here: Safety Reshad Jones and running back Knowshon Moreno split the signing day spotlight by holding off on their decisions until Wednesday. Jones was the No. 1 safety target on Georgia's board and picked the Bulldogs over LSU. Moreno was a national recruit at running back who spurned Florida for Georgia.

Waiting game: Georgia can add one more player to this signing class and still be within NCAA guidelines. Offensive lineman Clifton Geathers out of Carver's Bay, S.C., the younger brother of former Bulldog Robert Geathers, didn't sign with anyone Wednesday. He's a nationally ranked recruit who is considering the Bulldogs but may not qualify academically.

Still searching: The Bulldogs addressed every need to some degree in this class. They will be eager to sign more offensive linemen in next year's class because they are set to lose so many to graduation in the next two years.
