Kearis Jackson as R2D2

Our first droid comparison is R2D2 and Kearis Jackson, as they are two of the most versatile characters for their respected teams.

Artoo was around for it all, and Jackson has been a part of the Georgia football program for a long time.

Both have a lot of spunk and sass but are incredibly loyal. You can always count on Jackson to make a play on the ground, through the air, or even in the return game.

They are dependable and trustworthy team players. Jackson was someone who could have left and found playing time but decided to stick it out and stay a Dawg. He is such a light on the team and is on track to have an incredible final season.

Artoo is a joy and keeps fans constantly laughing and wondering what the little droid will do next. Jackson is also someone that can break open and do something special. His return game skills are so close to seeing him break 100-plus yards to score, and we cannot wait for that to happen.

Jackson is a fan favorite, and so is Artoo, so the matching came easy with this one. There is nothing wrong with being an incredibly witty droid that gets to tag along through it all, just like there isn’t anything wrong with a versatile receiver taking on whatever opportunities they have.
