Dominick Blaylock is one of the most popular players to Georgia football fans, but his career has been riddled with injuries since getting to Athens.

In a season where George Pickens was hurt, the opportunity was there for Blaylock to become Stetson Bennett’s No. 1 target. But having returned from the knee injury which limited him last season, Blaylock suffered another injury — some guys can’t catch a break.

But genuinely, who would have thought that Ladd McConkey would go on to have the break-out season which he has had this year? Go to the top of the class if you predicted McConkey’s meteoric rise this year.

Rightly so, McConkey made the All-SEC Freshman team representing Georgia football, with his 430 yards and five touchdowns from 28 receptions at the end of the regular season. As for Blaylock, he battled injuries all season long, trying to get back healthy enough to play. He eventually did as Blaylock saw action in three games, recording two catches for 11 yards.

Worse still, for the 6-1, 205-pound redshirt sophomore, the wide receiver room is full of guys ready for their shot. Plus, Smart’s 2022 wide receiver class is looking good.

CJ Smith and Cole Spear are two high-profile signees alongside De’Nylon Morrissette. With Dillon Bell still expected to sign, this will boost a wide receiver room that has been empty at times this season due to so many injuries.

Of course, if Blaylock has learned anything the last two seasons, anything can and is likely to happen throughout the season. Much will depend on how well his injury has healed and whether he needs to move on to get a fresh start. One thing is certain — Georgia football fans have not seen anywhere near the best from Blaylock.

He could break out during the semifinals against Michigan and reaffirm his position on this team, and that would help the Dawgs out far more than him potentially transferring.

While it’s unlikely Blaylock would leave the program because he seems to love Georgia too much — it’s still something to think about and discuss. He is a competitor, and the Dawgs need the depth. So again, it’s unlikely that he will, but we wanted to include him because it’s something to think about because who knows what goes through kids’ minds these days.
