Rating Georgia Players As If They Were In A Video Game



Rating Georgia players as if they were in a video game

We all miss the EA Sports NCAA Football game and badly want to use D’Andre Swift to juke past an Auburn defender in Mercedes-Benz Stadium or Jake Fromm to throw a slant at Florida’s Chauncy Gardner.  Unfortunately, though, EA ended its partnership with collegiate athletics back in 2013 due to licensing issues.  However, we can all dream that Georgia is still on a video game and give some of our favorite players ratings.

Here you will find select ratings for our projected 2018 Georgia depth chart.

To start off, we will rate the projected offensive starters.

Offense

QB Jake Fromm: Sophomore quarterback Fromm had a pretty good start to his career in Athens and did well considering how quickly he was thrown into the starting role.

Overall: 88

Speed: 71

Accuracy: 91

Throw Power: 86

Read: Georgia Spring Predictions: Depth Chart, Record, Stats, Bowls, Etc.

RB D’Andre Swift: Sophomore running back Swift had a successful freshman season, but he still needs to prove himself as the main guy. Swift was stuck behind the greatest running back duo ever, so it was difficult to get reps last season.  However, we think Swift will have a breakout year in Athens come fall.

Overall: 82

Speed: 88

Agility: 83

WR/PR Mecole Hardman: Hardman had a successful season on special teams and came increasingly close to breaking free on a punt return last year. His incredible speed grants him an 85 overall rating.

Overall: 85

Speed: 94

Agility: 87

Catching: 82

WR Terry Godwin II: Godwin II is coming off of a huge season for the Bulldogs. He made an incredible diving grab in South Bend last year, which was comparable to Odell Beckham’s infamous catch.

Overall: 86

Speed: 83

Agility: 80

Catching: 94

TE Isaac Nauta: Georgia did not use the tight ends much last season, but that does not mean Nauta is not talented. The junior tight end is dangerous when he gets the ball.

Overall: 84

Speed: 78

Agility: 80

Catching: 88

Offensive Line: The offensive line provided the running backs a lot of help last season, which led to a domination of the SEC East.  The offensive line will only improve in Athens.

Overall: 92

Run blocking: 96

Pass blocking: 88

Overall offense rating: 86


Defense (we threw in some extra players)

DL Tyler Clark: Clark had some success in his freshman season in Athens. He will only get better during his tenure with the Bulldogs and showed out strong towards the end of 2017.

Overall: 85

Speed: 69

Tackling: 86

Pass rushing: 87

Run stuffing: 86

Penetration: 88

DE Jonathan Ledbetter: Ledbetter will be a huge asset to the Georgia defense in 2018 and likely lead the team on the defensive line.

Overall: 86

Speed: 73

Tackling: 88

DL Julian Rochester: Rochester will have a big year in Athens after a nice sophomore season. Look for Rochester, Ledbetter and Clark to carry the load of the defense in 2018.

Overall: 85

Speed: 70

Strength: 95

Penetration: 88

LB Monty Rice: Rice did well his freshman season, especially after Patrick’s suspension.

Overall: 80

Speed: 81

Tackling: 79

Motor: 94

LB Natrez Patrick: Patrick had a decent year for Georgia with a few interceptions, but his mistakes off the field proved to be costly.  Look for Patrick to have a breakout season if he stays on the field.

Overall: 80

Speed: 81

Pass rushing: 78

Tackling: 83

LB D’Andre Walker: Walker had a pretty good showing for his junior year  and has the potential to be a team leader in his senior season.

Overall: 79

Speed: 77

Tackling: 81

LB Juwan Taylor: Taylor will enter his senior season with the Bulldogs as one of the leaders at linebacker.  The Bulldogs could use a big year out of Taylor if they want to replicate their defensive success from last season.

Overall: 80

Speed: 79

Tackling: 83

LB Walter Grant: Grant will be entering his sophomore season as an unfamiliar Bulldog to some.  He will likely replace some of the lost talent at the linebacker position.

Overall: 78

Speed: 77

Tackling: 79

DB Deangelo Gibbs: Gibbs was not enrolled with the university for the spring semester, but he has now re-joined the team and will begin taking classes again.

Overall: 82

Speed: 80

Tackling: 83

DB Deandre Baker: The Bulldogs got a lot out of Baker in the 2017 season, and he is regarded as one of the nation’s most talented cornerbacks.

Overall: 93

Speed: 86

Catching: 87

Awareness: 95

Coverage: 98

DB JR Reed: Reed had a successful season with the Bulldogs last year and looks to carry that success with him to the 2018 season.

Overall: 85

Speed: 83

Catching: 80

DB Tyrique Mcghee: Mcghee returns to the Bulldogs as a veteran now who has played in quite a few games.  He will provide some needed leadership for the younger stars on the Bulldogs’ talented roster.

Overall: 83

Speed: 81

Tackling: 84

DB Richard LeCounte: LeCounte is due for a big season in Athens, and though young, will emerge as a leader.

Overall: 82

Speed: 85

Tackling: 81

Awareness: 88

Overall defense rating: 83


Special Teams

K Rodrigo Blankenship: Blankenship returns to Athens for his junior season after a successful sophomore year.  The kicker did not miss a single extra point last season and provided the Bulldogs with 3 points at some of the most crucial points in big ball games.

Overall: 96

Accuracy: 95

Kick Power: 97
