Georgia football’s tight ends will lead the receiving pack
Georgia football has two of the most talented tight ends in the entire country on their roster, and now they are both finally healthy.
All season, Brock Bowers has led the way, emerging as someone to keep an eye on despite being a freshman. Darnell Washington is back, and while he slowly got implemented into the offense against Auburn this week against Kentucky, both will be at the top of the receiving page.
Washington is a freak athlete who will be a mismatch for every single defensive back in the country. At 6-foot-7 260-pounds, he towers over defenders. So Bennett just needs to place the ball where he can get it, and either he will catch it or draw a pass interference call.
While Kentucky has the second-most pass breakups in the conference, they haven’t taken on a target like Washington.
Bowers has 20 catches on the year for 315 yards and four touchdowns. He is one of Bennett and JT Daniels’ favorite targets, and after this big week on the recruiting front, it would only be smart for offensive coordinator Todd Monken to use the tight ends a lot.
These two could see a pair of touchdowns themselves, and I would go as far as to say Bowers will get No. 5 and No. 6 on the season. He has been quiet the last couple of games, so it’s time for him to make some plays in an explosive way.
