Post The depth chart for the next three days

Tuesday August 30, 2011

Georgia released an updated depth chart today, and it creates almost as many questions as it answers. Weiszer’s observations are good ones, and here are a couple more.

  • The absence of Drew isn’t a big deal; it just reflects his injured status (same with Malcome). Richt said at his press conference today that Drew would play on Saturday.
  • Two of the bigger questions in the offseason have been who will be the “other” receiver and cornerback. King and Boykin were pretty well established at their spots, but the departure of A.J. Green and Vance Cuff left vacancies at the other starting spots. I’m encouraged to see Marlon Brown and Branden Smith step into those roles. Both are two of the top prospects Georgia has recruitied at their respective positions over the past several years. It’s good to see that top talent finally come into its own in their junior seasons.
  • Speaking of the secondary, Sanders Commings looks to be one of the more important players on the team that the average fan doesn’t know much about. Not only is he listed as the starting safety; he’s also one of the top cornerback reserves.
  • The starting line has the possibility of being very good if it can stay healthy. The sum total of the experience of the second-team line is the three 2010 games in which Dallas Lee saw mop-up duty: Louisiana-Lafayette, Vanderbilt and Idaho St. The rest of the second team are true freshmen and one highly-rated redshirt sophomore who’s yet to see any game time due to a long recovery from back surgery.
  • As for the whole Rambo thing, I’ve wondered if something is up. But while Richt continues to be maddeningly cryptic about the whole thing, Rambo remains on the depth chart. Carlton Thomas, who most definitely is suspended for the opener, is not listed. It leads me to wonder if Rambo isn’t seeing some sort of alternate discipline like the loss of his starting position or even a partial-game suspension.
