The Georgia Bulldogs will have a fair amount of both new faces and returning ones this football season. And while some positions are all but locked up, there are others that will be battled for, and some of them key positions.

It’s all but decided that redshirt senior Hutson Mason will be the Bulldogs’ starting quarterback. With four years of experience behind him, most of it watching the incomparable Aaron Murray, it’s doubtful that any of Georgia’s other quarterbacks will truly challenge Mason.

The tailback situation as well is a known, with Todd Gurley coming back off an injury-plagued 2013, and J.J. Green, Brendan Douglas, and (eventually) Keith Marshall there as well. Incoming freshman Sony Michel might be able to work his way into the regular rotation and perhaps even pass a couple of the others, but no matter how you look at it, the Bulldogs are well stacked at running back.

But down in the trenches on both sides of the ball, as well as receivers and tight ends, there will be some questions that have to be answered.

Here are the five most pressing positions that fans should keep a close watch on through the fall practices up until the season opener depth charts are announced.
