Divaad Wilson cleared to play

Maybe too late into the season to give him playing time. Many thought he had the potential to start during spring practice before tearing his ACL. We'll see how this goes. At the very least, the more depth the better.

    Could see some time vs UMass and Gtech and still redshirt.

    I could see that too.

    I’d rather he play against UMass than Tech, I think we’ll need more/better LB play for Tech

    He's been cleared, but is he in football shape? Don't need another Zeus incident. Let the kid pace thru drills and just chalk this year up as a chance to learn the playbook in depth.

    With on you on getting him redshirted, but if he is as good as the reports were on him before the injury then focus him on returning for GT get his feet wet before we see Bama and what lies next.

    That would be great but those key 2 words ( Before Injury) but I think he have a bright future with us

    Where was he getting his run before the injury? CB, Safety, Star?

    Edit...nevermind. I just read that it's Star.

    If Kirby puts him on punt coverage and ruins coach @nycdawg 's half birthday THERE WILL BE HE'LL TO PAY!!!!!

    :D ... was thinking the same thing.

    Regarding Wilson being in shape. I do know he's been running drills in practice for quite a while. I wouldn't advise putting him in against AU, but rather wait for UMass. FWIW, I thought Mark Webb played well against Kentucky.

    Let him get a full week or two full go in practice. If he can handle the physicality of our practices he should be good to go in a game. I just wonder where he sits on the depth chart at this point.

    I think either play him the last 6 games or bench him for auburn and tech so he can redshort but still help us against bama or in the playoff

    What last 6 games? Georgia has Auburn, UMASS, and GT left to play. Then it's Alabama. Georgia is most likely going to redshirt him. Only let him try and play 4 games.

    When we beat Bama and go to the playoffs and have a 5th and 6th game, we might want to be able to play Divaad without burning a redshirt.

    If that happens I'm less concerned with his redshirt status. :)

    Play him against auburn....full contact practices for Umass and GaTech to work on any potential whiffs he has against the barn. Then he can still play against Bama and any potential games afterwards and retain red shirt, unless there's a clause regarding post season I'm not aware of

    VERY interesting news with Divaad when you consider Bamas advantage at the WR position and smarts heeping praise of him in the spring. Kinda reminds me of a western movie where the good guys are pinned down and losing a gun fight. Just when all hope seems lost, a character from was earlier in the movie you forgot about in the heat of the moment come crashing through the burning barn door on his horse, guns a blazing. He catches everyone off guard and does just enough at critical moment in the battle to tip the balance in favor of sheriff smart and the boys. Now defeated, The outlaw “shorty” nick satan is promptly hung from the nearest tree.

    I’ve seen that movie, Star Wars. It was Han Solo

    ...or something like that.

    Really excited to see Divaad play. Could really be an X-factor in the secondary. Maybe even down the stretch of 2018.

    There are moments like this when I wonder if this board can adequately express our appreciation for the timely graphics you drop in here from time to time.

    Kind of like a pass to the TE.

    Does that mean there are a lot more coming?

    I'll hold up my end of the bargain.
