Bulldogs To Watch: Georgia vs. Vanderbilt 2022

Bryan McClendon (Receiver Coach) – It’s been a while since Georgia fans have seen their team go up top on a defense and heave one for a deep touchdown. The Dawgs just haven’t executed or had the leeway to try that high-risk, high-reward kind of play, but that should change against Vanderbilt. Coach Bryan McClendon and this Georgia receiving core should have their way with this objectively less talented Commodore secondary. Expect Stetson Bennett to be airing it out come gameday.

Arian Smith (WR #11) – After being limited by both recovery from surgery and a minor thumb injury, Smith should find some good opportunities against a below mediocre Vanderbilt defense. If offensive coordinator Todd Monken is to try any plays that take the top off the defense, it would be against Vanderbilt with Arian Smith, so if he finds himself open deep don’t be surprised.





Oscar Delp (TE #4) – Freshman tight end Oscar Delp often finds playing time in the back end of games when the win is already secured. Given the reputation of this Vanderbilt team going into week seven, the Dawgs should secure their victory early in this game which in turn should offer Delp more opportunities in the form of targets. He’s shown off some decent route running ability and has found himself open in the past. Expect him to be challenged earlier in this matchup.

Devin Willock (OL #77) – The fact that Georgia constantly rotates their offensive line is an underrated and overlooked statement that speaks to the talent and depth that they have at that position. Willock is a force in the running game. Standing at 6-7, 335-pound, he uses his size to displace defenders and make way for the ball carrier.

Tramel Walthour (#90) – Originally a JUCO transfer, Tramel Walthour has been seeing an increased role ever since fellow DL and first round lock Jalen Carter went down with a knee injury. Most often you can see Walthour play at defensive end, but he has the size to play inside, and he’s been utilized there before. Walthour is a twitchy defender who can show fans that he has something special to offer with this newfound playing time.





Kelee Ringo (#5) – Starting the year off, considered as a preseason All-American and first round NFL draft pick by multiple prominent outlets may have gotten into the young cornerbacks head. Over the past six games Keee Ringo’s game has been a little shaky. Yes, he’s had good days, but he’s also had bad ones. When you have a defensive front that’s as hard to run against as the one that Georgia has right now, your corners are bound to see more targets. Ringo should have a performance that lives up to the hype against a dingy Vanderbilt team.
