No. 2 – Jeb Blazevich, Tight End (Rising Sophomore)

Blazevich was yet another one of Georgia’s true freshman who began making an early impact on the team. Jay Rome was looked at as Georgia’s number one tight end last season, but injuries and other issues gave Blazevich the chance to shine.

Georgia’s run-heavy, pass-light offense last season didn’t utilize tight ends as much as it had in years past, but even with fewer overall targets to the position, Blazevich still managed to catch 18 passes for 269 yards and two touchdowns

New offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer loves 2-tight end schemes, and will undoubtedly make good use of Blazevich. We could be looking at something hearkening back to the days of Leonard Pope and Benjamin Watson in the 6’5, 230-pound Blazevich.
