Plenty of talent at wide receiver

Yes, the wide receivers are a strength this season. George Pickens not only had a fantastic season, fellow freshman Dominick Blaylock also had a good year. Both played better as the season went on and were already the true leaders of the position group when the Dawgs entered the SEC Championship Game.

The returning receivers aren’t far off from being solid players though. Matt Landers was probably everyone’s least favorite player by the end of the season. His dropped passes, especially near the end zone, frustrated fans. But, the reason why those plays were so frustrating is because he was usually wide open. Landers does a great job getting open, he just needs to finish. Same goes for Demetris Robertson.

You also can’t overlook the talent of Kearis Jackson and Tommy Bush. Who knows what those two could have accomplished if they had stayed healthy.

Perhaps the biggest cause of optimism for Georgia’s receiving corps in 2020 is the wealth of receivers signed to this most recent recruiting class. Marcus Rosemy, Arian Smith and Jermaine Burton, make this the most star-studded class of receivers in school history. Add in what’s already on campus, this receiving corps is extremely talented.
