3. MJ Sherman
The least experienced out of the three has to be sophomore MJ Sherman. While he has dealt with some injuries since getting to Athens, now is his time to get in there and be a big help to his teammates.
Sherman, a Washington DC native, was a highly touted recruit coming out of high school, being the No. 2 overall outside linebacker in the whole country.
The talent is there with Sherman, and now he just needs to get on the field and prove he belongs.
Sherman’s style of play matches more of what you would see out of Nakobe Dean than Adam Anderson, but just because he will be playing in that spot does not mean he has to play exactly like him.
He has only seen playing time in five games throughout this season, but that doesn’t mean he is not ready to step up and play a bigger role without the presence of Anderson. Sherman needs to take this opportunity and run with it.
It’s time he proves why he ranked as the No.2 linebacker in high school and put that talent to work in college. While he is deeper down the depth chart, Anderson is gone, so who cares what that depth chart says — compete and earn your spot if you want it bad enough.
Georgia needs to see something out of Sherman, or someone else will swoop in and steal this role from him.
The Dawgs take on Charleston Southern in the final home game of the season, and all three of these guys should see the field. This matchup will be a perfect opportunity to see them step up and make a name for themselves.
