Three takeaways from Saturday’s scrimmage for Georgia Football


We’re heading into week three of the Georgia Spring Football Slate, as Georgia nears its annual Spring G-Day scrimmage, they’ve apparently learned a few things about the current version of their football team.

The quarterback game is strong

One thing was certain by everyone present on Saturday, Georgia is not lacking in talent at quarterback. Stetson Bennett is still at the top of the room, but for the second consecutive offseason, Carson Beck has put together some pretty significant quality work. A solid 6’4, 225-pound frame with an NFL arm, sources said Beck got quite a bit of attention in the NFL just by pitching at Georgia’s Pro Day event.

As for former five-star Brock Vandagriff, he had perhaps his best scrimmage day of his young career on Saturday. Of all the quarterbacks at Georgia, Vandagriff has the most gifted physical skills from head to toe, and he’s starting to steer that talent in the right direction.

three headed monster

The three Georgia running backs currently on campus — Kenny McIntosh, Kendall Milton and Daijun Edwards — are off to a miraculous spring, with McIntosh and Milton breaking big runs Saturday per sources. The buzz around the program is that the running room is perhaps the most professional unit on the roster from a “know how to work” standpoint. They don’t lack homework, they know how to train and they are competitive. Milton has evolved into the role of Zamir White over the past two seasons, with McIntosh doing a bit of everything out of the backfield.

Thin and staggering defense

It wasn’t the standard Georgia defense on display Saturday. Explosive runs, explosive plays in the air, line of scrimmage reset by opposing offensive line. These are not things Georgia is used to at this point in Kirby Smart’s regime. Although to their credit, Georgia’s defense is extremely thin at linebacker, safety and cornerback, while also trying to replace first-round talent inside the box. It’s a marathon, not a sprint here with rebuilding the core of this defense.
