Georgia Bulldogs To Watch: Georgia vs. Mississippi State 2022

Glenn Schumann (DC) – Schumann is one of the most valuable pieces of the UGA coaching staff. An elite recruiter who has exceptional football knowledge and a work ethic Coach Smart praises often. Schumann’s defense is coming off their best performance of the season, limiting Tennessee’s No. 1 ranked offense to just 13 points, creating two turnovers, and sacking the quarterback six times. Mississippi State runs a hurry-up, air raid offense similar to Tennessee, which Schumann will need to get the Dawgs ready to go again.

Broderick Jones (LT #59) – Jones, who has expectedly replaced Jamaree Salyer at left tackle this season, has been solid as a rock for the Bulldogs up front. Protecting the quarterback’s blindside is no easy task against the number of elite edge rushers that play in the SEC, but Jones has made it look effortless. Georgia has been at their best when they have been able to establish the run game early in order to open up the passing game. Expect Jones to play a critical factor in this against Mississippi State.





Brock Bowers (TE #19) – Bowers, the best player in college football, is coming off a game where he had just three receptions for 27 yards and one rush for seven yards. Bowers was essential to Georgia’s success on the ground yesterday despite limited numbers in this game. Against Mississippi State, on the road, Georgia will need to get off to a fast start to get the crowd out of the game. Bowers will provide Georgia’s offense with that sense of security and should expect to receive plenty of touches.

Kenny McIntosh (RB #6) – McIntosh is heating up for the Bulldogs running game. Coming into the season, McIntosh had shown that he was an impressive back with numerous strengths, especially catching the ball out of the backfield. In the past two games, McIntosh has 144 yards and two touchdowns. McIntosh will provide the Dawgs with a stable rushing performance as well as continue to contribute to the passing attack against Mississippi State.

Smael Mondon (LB #2) – Mondon, the talented ILB, has returned from injury to take back over his starting role in this Georgia defense. Mondon is exceptionally quick, and a player Coach Smart has praised as “one of the best athletes he has ever coached.” The linebacker is coming off a performance where he had four tackles and he will have to play a very disciplined game to limit Mississippi State through the air.





Kamari Lassiter (DB #3) – Lassiter has been often overshadowed by his counterpart, Keele Ringo, but what a performance he had against Tennessee. Lassiter racked up five tackles and one PD. With Mississippi State looking to throw the ball all over the field, Lassiter will once again have to play exceptionally well in coverage against Mike Leach’s team.
