Sophomore Jalen Catalon has been a stud on the defensive side of the ball for Arkansas through four games this season.
The defensive back leads the team with 16 solo tackles and is one of two players with two interceptions this year, one of which he returned for 44 yards.
If those numbers aren’t impressive enough, keep in mind that Catalan has two interceptions and only had to defend three passes so far. Catalan knows what he is doing back there, and Georgia will have to be smart with him.
Texas A&M was smart enough not to throw the ball his way. He was only thrown towards once against Texas and twice when Arkansas played Georgia Southern. Georgia may need to choose the same route the Aggies took, but at the same time, the Dawgs have talented wideouts. They just need to make sure they can create space and catch the ball.
JT Daniels has plenty of options to play catch with, including getting back the big-man himself this week in Darnell Washington. Just last week, the Dawgs had four different players with at least three receptions. Still, I don’t know if Georgia has played a defensive back with the talent Catalon has.
If I were a betting man, I’d say he will more than likely be defending the best receiver Georgia has on the field. Regardless of who is under center for the Dawgs, they will need to know where this defensive back is at all times.
