imageWhat comes next at tight end, cornerback after significant Georgia football roster turnover

The Georgia football roster is going through changes. It’s not unexpected, given those are the waters national champions swim in, as Georgia saw Darnell Washington and Kelee Ringo declare for the NFL draft, while Ryland Goede and Jaheim Singletary both hopped in the transfer portal.

    What does it say that you are transferring out of a national championship program, when said program has a need at that position. That doesn't look good for the player. Whoever is advising that guy is flat out wrong.

    It says "unlike OL, DL, LB, DB and even RB where they can find ways to get multiple guys on the field, TE is a position where for the most part only 1 guy is going to play at a time and for 2022 that guy is going to be Brock Bowers."

    Good grief man. On 99% of NCAA teams, Darnell Washington is the starting TE. And on 85% of those teams - basically every one that doesn't have a future 1st round pick WR - he is actually the focal point of the offense. Yet at UGA he gets less than 2 catches per game. (And this was UGA making a concerted effort to get him involved that they wouldn't for guys with less ability.) And Delp, the clear #3 TE, got 5 catches. And UGA isn't some ball-control "run it 60% of the time" offense like Michigan. Bennett had 4100 yards passing this year and would have had even more but for the blowouts.

    And not only is Bowers set for next season, Oscar Delp is behind him. What does it say that the coaches turned to Delp, a true freshman, without hesitation in a playoff game that they were a made field goal from losing without hesitation? It says "the other guys aren't in the running."

    Bowers is going to start next season and Delp is going to be #2. No one else is going to get real playing time. Delp is going to start in 2024. So barring serious injuries that no one wants to see happen, let alone predict, the guys who are leaving now flat out aren't going to play for UGA. So whoever these guys are listening to, it shouldn't be you, who cares more about boasting over UGA's depth chart than these guys getting the playing time that they need to perhaps be 5th or 7th round draft picks. Don't say "but they could get another ring" because they already have two of them.

    You know, I actually think your logic is sound... pretty good, actually. Tonality toward your other Dawgnation posting colleagues? Not so much 🤔

    Commitment and loyalty are not character traits that players have today. In the end, it is about self and not the love for the University or program. Some players said they love the university, but in the end, they are doing what they think is best for them. I understand why some leave the program. They have put in the blood and sweat their two or three years in the program and do not get much playing time. When that is the case...it is time to move on. They don't need the coaches to tell them they have no chance of meaningful playing time. The coaches are doing that with the lack of playing time they are giving them. Please don't criticize a kid for leaving when he want to get on the field and the opportunity is not there for them at UGA.
