1. Jack Chambers (QB)
The biggest playmaker for Georgia football to slow down is Bucs starting quarterback Jack Chambers.
He is a dual-threat quarterback who uses his arm and legs to make things happen. Chambers leads the team in rushing yards as he averages 3.7 yards a touch on 128 carries for 477 yards and seven touchdowns.
Through the air, he has gone 219-of-387 for 2,435 yards, 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions on the season. He completes 56% of his passes and is the Bucs’ go-to man.
Last week against Gardner-Webb, the redshirt senior went 23-of-39 for 286 yards, two scores, and one interception. He also had 13 carries for 28 yards and a rushing touchdown.
Chambers is the guy Charleston Southern is going to look to try and make plays against the Bulldogs. He can, but this defense is stout, so it’ll be interesting to see how the coaching staff decides to call the game.
The Bucs trust him to score points, and he does. He is their leader, and it shows in his numbers — to have 2,435 yards through nine games is pretty impressive as well. There is no overlooking this guy as he is a similar statue to Georgia’s quarterback Stetson Bennett.
Chambers is 5-10 and 180-pounds while Bennett is 5-11 and 190-pounds, so this defense knows what it’s like to go up against twitchy quarterbacks that like to run the ball.
Charleston Southern will try and hurt the Dawgs through the air, so the secondary better get ready to stay tight on those wideouts, and the linebackers and defensive linemen need to be prepared for Chambers to tuck and run it because he will.
Georgia should put some pressure on Chambers, but they need to do it quickly because while he has gotten sacked 31 times, Chambers can get away from the pressure as well.
