Georgia football must see its offensive line contain Will Anderson
Will Anderson is a stud. One of the best, if not the best, pass rushers in college football. The junior from Hampton, Ga., has racked up 14.5 sacks this season and is the team general for Alabama. He understands what it means to wear Crimson and White. After that loss to Texas A&M, he put the team on his shoulders and got them to where they are now.
The Dawgs will need to know where No. 31 is at all times. Expect a double team from Georgia, and this will not be like any double team Anderson has seen.
Georgia will be able to use Darnell Washington to help out the tackles, either Warren McClendon at right tackle or Jamaree Salyer/Boderick Jones at left tackle. It would be different from other teams’ double teams because Washington could legit play SEC tackle if he added some more weight. Heck, he could probably play defensive end if needed.
With all the credit and respect Georgia gives to Anderson, they will have to trust the tackles to take him one-on-one. Georgia can trust their offensive linemen because of the talent they see weekly in practice. It will pay off this Saturday.
Keep your eye on Anderson. If he is having a frustrating night, Georgia will be having a great night from their offensive line.
The Dawgs need that line to protect starting quarterback Stetson Bennett at all costs. He leads the SEC in fewest times sacked, and that doesn’t need to change on Saturday.
