3. TOP GEORGIA PLAYERS

Best Georgia Offensive Player

QB Jake Fromm, Jr.  
No beef if you want to put Andrew Thomas here, but Dawgs have a star at quarterback who’s rising up in the NFL Draft rankings.

The 6-2, 220-pounder went from being the guy who was going to back up Jacob Eason, to the guy who was about to be pushed out by Justin Fields, to the guy who might just be the second quarterback taken in the 2020 NFL Draft after Tua Tagovailoa. He’s the tough veteran who’s accurate, efficient, and as cool as they come.

With a changing offense and with a slew of new receiving parts, he’ll have to be even sharper. There’s no concern there. With Eason now at Washington and Fields at Ohio State, staying healthy is going to be a really big deal.

Best Georgia Defensive Player

S JR Reed, Sr.
The 6-1, 194-pound Reed combines with Richard LeCounte to give Georgia one of the nation’s better safety tandems. Reed could do more when the ball is in the air, and LeCounte led the team in tackles, but the senior is the better pro prospect and should be the biggest playmaker in the secondary.

But this could all change in a hurry in terms of who the best defensive player really is.

Freshman LB Nolan Smith and ends Jermaine Johnson and Travon Walker are special, and there’s a whole lot more talent coming in. For now, though, the secondary will be the star.
