ESPN Sees Good Things Coming For Georgia Offense

Last season, the Georgia Bulldogs produced one of the most potent rushing attacks in college football, all while the nation was watching a true-freshmen quarterback lead Georgia to a Rose Bowl victory and bring the team to a national title.

Earlier this week, ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg published an article stating that Georgia will have the nation’s best offense in college football over the next three seasons.

Despite the departures of Nick Chubb, Sony Michel and Javon Wims, Georgia has obtained enough depth through recruiting for the team to continue to progress, rather than regress.

Georgia will be returning most of its offensive production from a season ago, including Jake Fromm, D’Andre Swift, Elijah Holyfield, Brian Herrien, Terry Godwin, Mecole Hardman, Riley Ridley, Tyler Simmons, Jeremiah Holloman, Isaac Nauta and Charlie Woerner. That list doesn’t even include the offensive linemen who combined to make Georgia’s line one of the most dominate in all of college football.

Here are the top stat lines of returning players: (according to sports-reference.com)

  • Jake Fromm had the second-best CMP% (62.2) in the SEC in 2017
  • Jake Fromm had the second-best passing efficiency rating (160.1) in the SEC in 2017
  • Jake Fromm had the third-most passing touchdowns (24) in the SEC in 2017
  • Jake Fromm was responsible for the fourth-most touchdowns (27) in the SEC in 2017
  • Jake Fromm had the fifth-most passing yards (2,615) in the SEC in 2017
  • Jake Fromm had the seventh-most total yards (2,694) in the SEC in 2017
  • Terry Godwin had the ninth-highest receiving yards per reception (16.8) in the SEC in 2017
  • Terry Godwin tied for the tenth-most receiving touchdowns (6) in the SEC in 2017
