Reason #2 – Depth at receiver and tightend

Post by Mike

Georgia has a distinct advantage with dependable targets for Murray. Despite suffering two season ending injuries (Marlon Brown and Michael Bennett) the Dawgs still have more weapons to stretch the field.

Player                                   Yards Receiving
Tavarres King                     704

Malcolm Mitchell             532
Arthur Lynch                      344

Chris Conley                       195

Rantavious Wooten        183

Jay Rome                             133

Bama has been banged up at the position too, but Saban doesn’t have the depth to work with that Richt does. Against Auburn he suffered another injury when Kenny Bell left the game. Now his most dependable targets are freshmen Amari Cooper and Kevin Norwood.

Kevin Norwood                 393

Grantham is salivating over this and expect to see Jarvis Jones in full blitz mode. When he does bring the heat, McCarron will throw to Lacy on the screen. For the season the back has 165 yards receiving and 35 of those came against Texas A&M, when the Tide put up 309 yards passing as they tried to catch up to Johnny Football.
