Tight Ends – Ben Watson (2001-2003), Orson Charles (2009-2011)

The position of tight end at Georgia has essentially been a “next man up” situation. Moving through Ben Watson, Ben Watson, Leonard Pope, Martrez Milner, Orson Charles, Arthur Lynch and now on to Jeb Blazevich, Tight End-U is becoming a name familiar to Bulldog fans.

But Watson and Charles were special in their respective careers, coming up with not only some incredible stats, but being dependable and go-to receivers for their quarterbacks and always seeming to come up with the big catches when needed.

After transferring from Duke in 1999, Watson took over as the starting tight end in 2002 and amassed an incredible 65 receptions for 852 yards in three seasons with the Dawgs, scoring seven touchdowns with an impressive 13.1 yards per catch.

Charles was the tireless worker, a huge blocking tight end and receiver who in three seasons totaled 94 catches for 1,370 yards and 10 touchdowns.
