Bulldogs To Watch: Georgia vs. Missouri 2022

Jackson Meeks (WR #9) – Sophomore Jackson Meeks is an emerging talent in this Georgia offense. He’s in the process of earning the trust of the quarterbacks and is proving himself worthy in the process. Meeks should find himself open often against Mizzou in a reserved role early. If the Dawgs run away with it Meeks may see more deep targets from Carson Beck.

Dillon Bell (WR #86) – The lack of depth at receiver is starting to get real. It is because of injuries to Arian Smith and AD Mitchell that freshman Dillon Bell earned a starting role, but he’s proven himself worthy of the spot thus far. He dropped a touchdown pass against Kent State, but that can easily be attributed to first-year yips. This will be Bell’s third game with meaningful snaps. He should compete well against an unranked Missouri.





Darnell Washington (TE #0) – Not like you should have expected them to, but none of the linebackers or defensive backs expected to start for Missouri exceed the height of 6’3. Darnell Washington is 6’7.5. You already knew Washington was a walking mismatch, so his talents should be put on display against a lackluster Missouri defense. Expect a couple broken tackles and a hurdle or two from him come gameday.

Tykee Smith (DB #23) – Originally a transfer from West Virginia, Tykee Smith’s time at Georgia has been hampered with injury up until this season. The junior safety has earned a rotational role and will more likely see increased playing time since William Poole is no longer on the team. Despite his size, Smith takes pride in his physicality, and his teammates praise him for it too.

Nazir Stackhouse (DL #78) – Now starting as a third-year, Nazir Stackhouse offers a lot of size on the Georgia defensive line. Being 6’3, 320 pounds helps him move guys off the line of scrimmage opening up paths to the quarterback so his teammates can make plays. Coach Tray Scott constantly rotates him in and out so if he’s out there, he’ll be fresh and ready to make a play.





Mykel Williams (DL #13) – Mykel Williams is a disruptor on the line of scrimmage, and he’s only a freshman! Senior linebacker Nolan Smith referred to him as “a spitting image of Travon Walker ‘’ and it certainly feels like it. When Williams is on the field, he lets opposing quarterbacks know it. He has impressed his coaching staff and team all offseason. Now that he’s had a couple games to find his sea legs, Williams should be primed and ready to make himself at home in the Missouri backfield.
