Many that follow the Dawgs believe, that this year’s Georgia Football squad might have the most talent at Wide Receiver since Kirby Smart has taken over.
There is no doubt that Georgia does have a lot of capable receivers. But the question is can they have someone get over 1,000 yards?
Since Terrance Edwards in 2002, Georgia has not had a receiver break over the 1,000 mark. There have been wideouts that have come close.
In 2008 Georgia had 2 wideouts come close to 1,000 yards. AJ Green and Mohamed Massaquoi both went over 900 yards.
Interestingly, Brock Bowers was 5th all-time in receiving yards last season (2022) with 942 yards. With Mike Bobo coming in as the new OC, will there be more emphasis on throwing the ball? There might be.
Given the fact that Georgia’s running back core is probably going to be by committee, I don’t think it is out of the realm of possibility that Georgia is more of a throwing attack on offense.
Also, If history does repeat itself, Mike Bobo was the OC in 2008 when Georgia nearly had 2 wideouts hit the 1,000-yard mark. Now, one of them was AJ Green, but still, this Georgia wide receiver group is extremely deep and talented.
It seems like every analyst is talking about Dominic Lovett as a special player. Lovett, who played at Missouri last year, was owing Georgia most of the game until he got hurt.
Having Lovett, Rara Thomas, McConkey, Bell, and Bowers is going to be a matchup nightmare. Think if Georgia goes 3 wide with Lovett, Thomas, and McConkey.
What is the defense going to do? Add Bowers in that formation and who knows what to do.
Georgia’s offense should be pretty dynamic this season. What we as fans should be looking for, however, is who is finally going to break that 1,000-receiving-yard drought.
