Georgia Football Practice Report: Sunday, Aug. 7, 2022
ATHENS — The Georgia Bulldogs hit the field Sunday for their fourth practice of fall camp.
The media was allowed to view around 12 minutes of Georgia's practice this afternoon.
Here are some notes from Sunday:
Freshman defensive backs Julian Humphrey and Jaheim Singletary were getting yelled at by Bulldogs’ head coach Kirby Smart, who was on the microphone in his tower.
The quarterbacks were working by themselves over on the other side of the practice field. Senior signal caller Stetson Bennett and offensive coordinator Todd Monken were coaching up freshman Gunner Stockton during position drills.
Rising redshirt freshman Brock Vandagriff was taking reps ahead of rising redshirt sophomore Carson Beck on Sunday; however, it was the other way around on Thursday. (It will likely change the next time we see practice.)
Tight end Brett Seither and wide receiver Mekhi Mews were in black non-contact uniforms. Both of them were also wearing black jerseys at Thursday’s practice.
Meanwhile, freshman defensive lineman Christen Miller, who was wearing a black non-contact jersey on Thursday, was not donning one on Sunday.
The first-team offensive line was left tackle Broderick Jones, left guard Devin Willock, center Sedrick Van Pran, right guard Tate Ratledge, and right tackle Warren McClendon. The second team was left tackle Earnest Greene, left guard Xavier Truss, center Warren Ericson, right guard Dylan Fairchild, and right tackle Amarius Mims.
Rising redshirt sophomore offensive lineman Austin Blaske was talking over on the sideline with Van Pran and Ericson. It looked like Blaske was going to rotate in at the center position behind Ericson at some point with the second team.
The normal combination of wide receivers - Ladd McConkey, Arian Smith, AD Mitchell, Dominick Blaylock, and Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint - were running in various orders during position drills. Rising freshman Dillon Bell was the next man up.
Bell made a great play towards the sideline on a crossing route. The ball was a little under-thrown and Bell adjusted quickly, catching Smart's attention.
The tight ends were working together during positions drills and Oscar Delp looked impressive. He has a lot of upper-body strength and was also able to burst off the line of scrimmage with great speed. His footwork could use some work, though.
Freshman Marvin Jones Jr. and Darris Smith spent a period with the outside linebackers. Both are incredibly athletic, strong, and quick on their feet. Also, Chaz Chambliss made a great pop on a tackling dummy, impressing position coach Chidera Uzo-Diribe. He and former Bulldog Jarvis Jones were giving the OLBs pointers.
Smart was also chewing out tight end Arik Gilbert for not hustling hard during one drill. He also yelled at cornerback Nyland Greene for getting beat in coverage. Freshman defensive back Malaki Starks was also victim to Smart’s eye-in-the-sky.
The running backs were on the other side of the field, but Kenny McIntosh appeared to be the first guy through drills today. Kendall Milton was the No. 2 guy and looked a little bit more put together than he did in the annual G-Day scrimmage. Milton seems to have put on some weight and gotten bigger since April.
