A prediction of the 2022 Georgia football offense depth chart

Of course, Georgia football super senior Stetson Bennett will be the starting quarterback, but how will the rest of this offense shape up in 2022?

Will Kendall Milton and Kenny McIntosh be the next pair of running backs that will start, or will one emerge as a premier back? Sure tight end Brock Bowers will be a starter, and AD Mitchell could be as well, but there are a lot of guys that competed this spring, like Arik Gilbert and Oscar Delp, that earned some playing time.

What about Darnell Washington and other receivers who need playing time because they are elite too?

One of the best things about offensive coordinator Todd Monken is that he likes to use a lot of personnel and spread the wealth.

Last season Georgia averaged nine different players recording at least one catch per game, with seven of those being some kind of receiver and two being running backs. The Dawgs also averaged seven people recording at least one rush each game.

Talk about spreading the wealth, and the offense did just that. The best part about it is that Georgia returns most of its offensive playmakers, who were part of the large group of people getting at least one catch during last year’s games.

Here is how we think the Georgia football offense will look at each position.


  • Stetson Bennett
  • Carson Beck
  • Brock Vandagriff

Bennett secured his job last season, and there is no reason he won’t be the guy in 2022.  Beck had a strong G-Day and spring, and he will be there to learn from Bennett and be there if something happens.

The quarterback has grown a lot since last season, but he still has some work. We all must remember that at G-Day, Beck went against the backups and not the defense Georgia will field each week. He is the backup right now, but don’t count out Brock Vandagriff either because he went up against the first-string defense and had to work for it.

Bennett is the guy, though, and unless something drastic happens, he will stay the guy. There is no reason not to start him.

Running back

  • Kendall Milton
  • Kenny McIntosh
  • Daijun Edwards

If years’ past tells us anything, Georgia uses a running back by committee mindset, but Milton could change that. He seems poised to have a breakout season, but that will have to get earned if head coach Kirby Smart will steer away from something that works.

However, this duo will be strong because they have been around to know what they need to do. Daijun Edwards will be the third stringer McIntosh played with Milton during the last few years.

Many guys will get snaps at the running back position this year, but Milton will have the biggest year.

Offensive line

Left Tackle: 

  • Broderick Jones
  • Amarius Mims/Earnest Greene

Left Guard:

  • Xavier Truss
  • Micah Morris


  • Sedrick Van Pran
  • Warren Ericson

Right Guard

  • Devin Willock/ Tate Ratledge
  • Warren Ericson

Right Tackle

  • Warren McClendon
  • Amarius Mims/Aliou Bah/Earnest Greene

This position group has a lot of movement outside the tackles and center as McClendon, and Van Pran secured their starting roles. Jones is another who has secured his spot after filling the position when Jamaree Salyer couldn’t last year. When he could do that, it allowed  Salyer to go inside, which helped the Dawgs even more.

Some true freshmen could push their way into this starting lineup and earn some playing time, as Greene is one of those guys.

Mims is back from the transfer portal, and he will likely be someone who sees more playing time if he earns it.

Ratledge is where he is because this time last year, it was his spot to lose, but with that injury, there are some red flags, but if he heals, then it’s his starting spot, and it’ll elevate the offensive line to another level.

Truss is someone who waited for his turn and could get a lot of playing time, and then Morris is another name that is growing and patiently waiting to get more time. He seemed to have developed a lot this spring, so he appears on this two-deep prediction.

Tight end

  • Brock Bowers/Arik Gilbert
  • Darnell Washington

Washington and Bowers missed most of the spring because of injuries, but they will get a lot of playing time in 2022. The rising sophomore has high expectations, but he will likely shine as bright as he did in Year 1.

However, don’t get us wrong, Oscar Delp will get playing time. He is a freshman, so that could push him down the totem pole some, but expect him to push Washington and the rest of this crew. Gilbert stood out in G-Day and has similar expectations surrounding him that Bowers does, which is why they are together.

He will be on the field with Bowers, then Washington will be the next in line. Washington has to find a way to play to his size, or Delp will beat him.


  • AD Mitchell
  • Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint/Jackson Meeks


  • Ladd McConkey
  • Dominick Blaylock/Kearis Jackson


  • Arian Smith
  • Kearis Jackson/De’Nylon Morrissette

This group looks to replace George Pickens and Jermaine Burton as one left for the NFL and the other transferred to Alabama.

Mitchell proved himself in the playoffs last year, and his spring was strong as well, so he is an easy starter prediction.

McConkey can play multiple different spots, but he is someone who will start after such a solid first year. He stepped up when Georgia needed him most, and that alone will be a reason he will be on the field a lot.

Morrissette is another who had a strong spring, so look for him to try and earn a way onto the field.

There are many moving parts in the receiving room, with Bryan McClendon taking over the job. He has his system, but there will be more than the guys listed that will get playing time.

This receiving corp is stout and has a lot of guys on it that can ball out and fill the roles Georgia needs out of its wide outs.
