    Georgia fall practice will kick off on Tuesday, August 4. For Mark Richt and the Bulldogs, the expectations are once again to win the SEC Championship.

    Sophomore running back Nick Chubb returns for his second act, and could very well be the best running back in America. On the other side of the ball, the
    defense returns linebackers Leonard Floyd and Jordan Jenkins.

    After two years
    of watching the SEC title game from home, Georgia wants to
    reclaim its spot on top of the East, and the entire conference.

    Five Things To Keep Your Eye On

    Following are five things to keep your eye on during Georgia fall practice.

    1. The Quarterback Battle – Nick Chubb might be the focus of
    the offense, but he needs some help from whoever wins the quarterback job.
    Sophomore Brice Ramsey has a cannon of an arm, while Virginia transfer Greyson
    Lambert comes to Athens after completing 59 percent of his passes last year for
    the Cavaliers. For the Georgia offense to be dangerous, the quarterback will
    have to carry his share of the load.

    2. Where Are The Receivers? – Whichever quarterback wins the
    job will also have to deal with a lot of unknowns at the receiver position.
    Senior Malcolm Mitchell is back, but he tends to be injury prone. Senior Justin
    Scott-Wesley is also coming back from an injury, so tight end Jeb Blazevich
    could play a vital role in the passing game. Blazevich finished last season with 18 receptions for 269 yards and
    two touchdowns.

    3. A New Offensive Mind – Richt went out and brought in
    Brian Schottenheimer from the St. Louis Rams after Mike Bobo left for the head coaching position at Colorado State. Schottenheimer’s first duty will be to figure out
    ways to get the ball into the hands of Chubb.

    4. The Emergence of Trent Thompson – One of the top overall
    recruits in the country, Thompson is a mountain of a man at 6’4″ and 310 lbs. If he develops like many think he will in his first year, Georgia’s front seven will be dynamite.

    5. Who Can Relieve Nick Chubb? – Chubb is an amazing running
    back, but even he needs a breather every now and then. Who will emerge during fall practice to spell the budding superstar. Sophomore Sony Michel was
    consistent last year and should get more reps this season. Senior Keith
    Marshall could also see some time in the backfield.
