No. 2 – Will the Georgia offensive line live up to their experience and potential?

In 2013, the Georgia offensive line was good. Not great (as it probably should have been) but good enough…most of the time.

Center David Andrews is the rock, and all the rest of the linemen need to take their cues from him. John Theus and Kolton Houston have to be better, and not have some of the mental lapses that plagued them last season. Both seniors (Houston only in his second season after the NCAA drug testing battle), they need to be part of the leadership on this line.

Some of the position battles are still hashing out, but when the smoke clears, Georgia will probably have one of the most game-experienced lines in the country on the field, and they need to simply play like an elite group to give Hutson Mason the time he needs, and to create space for the running backs.

Keep an eye on redshirt sophomore Greg Pyke, who is sitting first on the depth chart at right guard at the moment. At 6-foot-6 and 320 pounds, Pyke is a freak of nature who was dusting most of the offensive linemen in sprint drills, and runs a faster 40-yard dash than some of the position players.
