Richt said a major point of emphasis at today's practice was protection.
"We talked a lot about protection issues today," Richt said. We got a lot better. We have to keep working hard. We need to be perfect with the protection, the holds and the snaps so the other guys can do their jobs."
Richt also singled out a pair of upperclassmen for taking on leadership roles.
"Asher Allen continues to be a guy who competes at a high level," Richt said. "He makes everybody better. Dannell Ellbere has really turned it around and has become a leader. I'm excited about what he's doing."
After practice Richt noted that senior defensive tackle Jeff Owens suffered a dislocated shoulder in the scrimmage last Saturday and will be out for the remainder of spring drills. Owens is expected to fully recover within two months.
The Bulldogs will practice again on Wednesday and Friday before the annual G-Day game at Sanford Stadium on Saturday at 2 p.m.
