Georgia QB Hutson Mason
Don't be fooled by the absence of quarterback Aaron Murray, because redshirt senior Hutson Mason can handle it.
He's learned behind one of the SEC's all-time best throughout his career, and it showed in the spring game. Mason showed off his big arm, was accurate underneath and displayed a mastery of the back shoulder fade both in the red zone and deep downfield.
What's scary is that he has weapons...a lot of them.
Todd Gurley is arguably the best running back in the country, the Bulldogs return center David Andrews and tackles Kolton Houston and John Theus on the offensive line and wide receivers Malcolm Mitchell and Justin Scott-Wesley will be healthy and join Michael Bennett and Chris Conley this summer.
Defensively, Georgia was a train wreck last year. But it fixed the glitch. Well, the glitch really fixed itself.
Todd Grantham was hired away by Louisville and all head coach Mark Richt did was lure Jeremy Pruitt, fresh off a national title, away from Florida State. He inherits a defense that returns nine starters and is loaded with talent but was poorly taught under the previous regime.
Pruitt's track record of both a coach and a teacher should get the Bulldogs defense back to a competitive level in a hurry.
