Kendall Ranks Dawgs' Top Offensive Players

ATHENS - Veteran reporter Josh Kendall makes his list of top offensive players in Athens.

Thomas Brown
Vitals: 5-foot-8, 185-pound junior
Career resume: 319 carries, 1,611 yards, 12 touchdowns
Why's he on the list?: Brown has been the most consistently dominant player in fall camp and appears ready to emerge from the three-way rotation at tailback as the No. 1 ball carrier.
Rank: No. 1

Mohamed Massaquoi
Vitals: 6-foot-2, 198-pound sophomore
Career resume: 38 catches, 505 yards, 2 touchdowns
Why's he on the list?: Massaquoi makes every catch. He'll be a more polished route-runner this year and should be a step faster because of his improved knowledge of offense and new running stride.
Rank: No. 2

Mikey Henderson
Vitals: 5-foot-10, 165-pound junior
Career resume: 2 tackles
Why's he on the list?: Saturday will mark Henderson's first collegiate snap on offense, but he has shown something in practice that no current Georgia receiver has shown anywhere – the ability to be a deep threat.
Rank: No. 3

Kregg Lumpkin
Vitals: 6-foot-1, 220-pound junior
Career resume: 178 carries, 858 yards, 9 touchdowns
Why's he on the list?: Although Brown clearly is the best running back on the team, Lumpkin still has plenty of talent. Richt will find ways to keep him involved in the offense.
Rank: No 4

Who's No. 5?
Vitals: It could be 190 -pound wide receiver Mario Raley or 240-pound tight end Martrez Milner or whippet-fast wide receiver Demiko Goodman or ultra-athletic Peach County product A.J. Bryant.
Career resume: All the players listed above, and all of the Bulldogs' other candidates for his spot, have shown flashes in practice but yet to prove themselves on Saturday.
