    Flanker
    8 A.J. Green (6-4, 207, Jr.)
    17 Rantavious Wooten (5-10, 170, So.)

    Georgia's turmoil under center generated much consternation in the offseason. Zach Mettenburger was dismissed from the team and junior Logan Gray (6-2, 192) nearly left after finding out redshirt freshman Aaron Murray (6-1, 207) had emerged from spring camp as the No. 1 quarterback. Gray still might end up somewhere other than quarterback. sophomore Washaun Ealey (5-11, 205) found his stride before his true freshman season was finished. After watching the first five games, Ealey debuted against LSU and went on to lead Georgia with 717 yards on 125 carries. Ealey, who also scored three TDs. Junior Caleb King (5-11, 210) rushed for 594 yards and seven TDs on 114 carries last season. The Competion here is still undecided...the coaches just feel they will spit carrier 50/50 as well as certain formation just for each back. Georgia might have the best receiver in the nation in junior A.J. Green (6-4, 205). Now, if it could only have him healthy for 13 games. Green missed three games with a shoulder injury last season and was limited part of his freshman year with an injury. Nonetheless, he's caught 109 passes for 1,772 yards and 14 touchdowns. Green's adjustments while balls are in the air -- like on his late TD catch against talented LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson -- are poetry in motion. Sophomore Tavarres King (6-1, 182) caught 18 passes for 377 yards (20.9 ypc) and a touchdown last season. Sophomore Rantavious Wooten (5-10, 173) caught 10 passes for 197 yards and two TDs. Sophomore tight end Orson Charles (6-3, 233) showed he could block and catch during an impressive freshman season, Charles had 23 receptions for 374 yards and three TDs. Junior tight end Aron White (6-4, 234) caught four TD passes while tallying 13 catches for 198 yards.

    Brandon Boykins, Justin Houston Baccari Rambo, and Braden Smith are the Stars we are counting on this season. Its still up in the Air where Houston will end up, either at End or OLB.

    It appears to be a good time to switch to the 3-4. The Bulldogs have to replace three interior linemen -- Geno Atkins, Jeff Owens and Kade Weston -- who were chosen in the NFL draft. Junior Justin Houston (6-3, 259) should thrive in the new scheme -- not that he was struggling in the 4-3. Houston was second-team All-SEC in 2009. He led the team in sacks (7.5) and tackles for loss (15) despite missing three games. Darryl Gamble (6-2, 250), a senior, could win a starting spot on the outside. Gamble started 11 games in 2009 and made 47 tackles, giving him 120 stops during his career. He really took off there [at Sam]. Maybe it's just as well the secondary must replace three starters in cornerback Prince Miller and safeties Bryan Evans and Reshad Jones, who was a fifth-round draft pick of the Miami Dolphins. Georgia gave up an SEC-high 25 touchdown passes last season and finished 10th in the league in pass defense. The returning starter is junior cornerback Brandon Boykin (5-10, 185), who was second on the team with three interceptions and six breakups last season. Sophomore Branden Smith (5-11, 175) played in 13 games, including one start as a true freshman. I think Branden Smith is probably the most talented guy. He's got good quickness. He played some on offense last year, too. He's a pretty talented guy who's got good cover skills. There is some experience at safety in redshirt sophomore Bacarri Rambo (6-0, 210). He suffered a concussion on a game winning pass break up at Auburn, which cost him two games. Rambo had five breakups and two interceptions, including one he returned 18 yards for a score against Tennessee. The last Spot is still Up for grabs.


    Punter
    13 Drew Butler (6-2, 203, Jr.)

    Place Kicker
    57 Blair Walsh (5-10, 185, Jr.)
    Junior Blair Walsh (5-10, 185) was one of three finalists for the Lou Groza Award last year. He made 20-of-22 field goals and all 42 of his PATs. He made a 53-yard field goal against Oklahoma State.

    Walsh turned 17 of his 75 kickoffs into touchbacks and is 92-for-92 on career PATs. He's 6-of-10 from beyond 50 yards on field goals and an impressive 10-of-11 from 40-49 yards.

    Junior Drew Butler (6-2, 203) won the Ray Guy Award and made at least four All-America first teams, including Walter Camp and the American Football Coaches, after averaging a whopping 48.1 yards per punt. Butler launchd a 75-yarder against Oklahoma State and 24 of his 56 punts went at least 50 yards. Nineteen were downed inside the 20-yard line.

    Returners
    Braden Smith and Brandon Boykins should handle all return duties. AJ Green and Tavarres King are Also Intrested. Junior Brandon Boykin became the first SEC player to return two kickoffs 100 yards in the same season. His Third Return was an 81 Yarder Vs TAMU in the Independence Bowl.
