NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein ranks Georgia junior G Greg Pyke his No.1 guard to watch in College Football in 2015.

"Maybe it's my background in an offensive line family, but watching tape of Pyke absolutely made my day! In fairness, I don't live the most exciting life anymore, but when I see a guard mash his opponents with pure power, good footwork and timing on combination blocks -- that makes me happy. Pyke uses quick, choppy steps to get himself in position and then plays with a strong base to lock defenders out," Zierlein wrote. The 6-foot-6, 313-pound Pyke earned AP Second Team All-SEC honors, while being named UGA's "Most Improved Player of the Year" in 2014. The first-year starter played in 13 games last season for the Bulldogs.

Former Georgia redshirt freshman QB Jacob Park is scheduled to visit Alabama this weekend, according to ESPN's Joe Schad.

Park was viewed as a four-star recruit in the 2014 class. Alabama seems to be interested in each transfer quarterback, or at least mentioned in the discussion. They added Jacob Coker last offseason but the FSU transfer sat behind Blake Sims.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein ranks Georgia sophomore RB Nick Chubb as the No. 2 College Football running backs to watch in 2015.

"This year, Chubb should dominate the SEC with his outstanding play speed, physical rushing style and elite balance. His ability to change directions and hit top speed quickly helps him maximize his yardage against athletic SEC foes, and few runners in the conference see the field as well as Chubb. He won't catch anyone by surprise this season, however, and he better get used to the swarm tackling he is sure to see this season," Zierlein wrote. As a freshman, the Georgia prospect opened some eyes with his ability to carry the load when Todd Gurley was out of the lineup. Chubb rushed for 1,547 yards with 14 touchdowns, with an impressive 7.06 yards per carry in 2014.

Sports on Earth's Matt Brown believes Georgia senior edge rusher Jordan Jenkins "could be poised for a big senior season, even if he's not quite the explosive athlete that [Leonard] Floyd is."

Between Jenkins, Floyd and gifted sophomore Lorenzo Carter, Georgia has a trio of ringleaders for what is going to be one of the nation's nastiest defenses in 2015. Jenkins, a former five-star recruit, earned Georgia's Most Improved Player award in 2014 after posting 70 tackles, 9.5 TFL and five sacks. The analyst ranks Jenkins as the No. 9 LB in the land.

Georgia redshirt junior OLB Leonard Floyd "wasn't a consistent superstar last year, and thus he decided to return for his junior season to possibly solidify his status as a first-round pick in the NFL draft," notes Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

"The 6-foot-4, 230-pound pass rusher has a ton of potential as a versatile weapon who can line up anywhere in Georgia's hybrid scheme," Brown wrote. "He just needs to be a bit more consistent, and a bit more physical, but he's one of the most explosive pass rushers in the nation." The analyst ranks Floyd as the No. 8 LB in the land. Floyd had 55 tackles and three forced fumbles last year and has 12.5 sacks and 18 TFL over the past two seasons.

NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter believes further improvement by Georgia senior OT John Theus will earn him comparisons to Jeff Backus.

"The five-star recruit struggled at times early in his career for the Bulldogs, though starting at right tackle as a true freshman in the SEC is quite an accomplishment," Reuter wrote. "The light bulb really seemed to go on for Theus in 2014, both in pass protection and as an effective run blocker after he moved to the left side." The 6-foot-6, 303-pounder from Jacksonville briefly considered turning pro after last season, but it was a sage decision to return for another audition.

Georgia redshirt sophomore LB Davin Bellamy driving charges were dropped by the Athens-Clarke County Police Department.

The charges -- which included a DUI allegation, underage possession of alcohol, speeding -- spurred a two-game suspension from Georgia head coach Mark Richt last season. Apparently, the police officer who arrested Bellamy was arrested in May for allegedly sexually assaulting a juvenile, which perhaps led to the dismissals.

Georgia sophomore RB Nick Chubb is already "as talented" as Todd Gurley, according to NFL Media's Lance Zierlein.

"Tape of Chubb was just as, if not more impressive than what I saw from Gurley when I wrote my draft profile. Chubb's balance is elite," Zierlein tweeted. Obviously this is high praise for Gurley, who was selected witht he No. 10 overall pick this April. Chubb saw a lot of playing time as a freshman due to Gurley's suspension and injury, and he displayed ridiculous skills. Chubb also might be one of the best athletes in the country at any position.

Georgia OC Brian Schottenheimer was "blown away" the most by sophomore RB Nick Chubb's "work ethic in the classroom and on the field."

"The work ethic he displays on the field, just the way he practices, I've been around few guys who have worked like that," Schottenheimer told 24/7 Sports. He's very mature beyond his years in what it takes to be an elite player. Just watching the guy work and the way he finishes runs and the way he attacks individual when he and coach Brown are just kind of doing drills or read drills or even pass protection, he attacks his craft. The ability, we've all seen that. The sky is the limit for the guy but the thing I was blown away most by is his work ethic in the classroom and on the field. When you do that, it tends to lead to success." The Georgia prospect had quite the season as a freshman, rushing for 1,547 yards with 14 touchdowns, despite losing reps to Todd Gurley. Chubb should have an opportunity to have another monster season in 2015.

Georgia graduate transfer QB Greyson Lambert "is a helpful addition to a team that would have found itself dangerously thin at quarterback without him," wrote ESPN's Edward Aschoff.

The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Lambert transferred over from Virginia, where he threw for 1,632 yards with a 10/11 TD/INT rate last year. Those are poor numbers, of course, but Lambert has skills and the hope is that with superior surrounding talent and two years of eligibility remaining, a career can be salvaged. Aschoff actually thinks redshirt sophomore Brice Ramsey is going to win the starting job, but after redshirt freshman Jacob Park transferred, the Bulldogs would have been down to only two quarterbacks had Lambert not come on board. "If Lambert is thrown onto the field at any point this season, the Bulldogs know they'll at least have an experienced FBS quarterback under center," Aschoff wrote.

Georgia senior edge rusher Jordan Jenkins "has quick hands to beat offensive linemen and deadly straight-line speed," according to NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

"Turning those flashes into long periods of brightness should put Jenkins (6-3, 253) squarely in the top-10 conversation," Reuter wrote. The former five-star recruit earned Georgia's Most Improved Player award in 2014 after posting 9.5 tackles for loss and five sacks.

Georgia redshirt freshman QB Jacob Park will transfer.

Park joins other Georgia quarterbacks to transfer in the last couple of seasons. The Bulldogs did bring in Greyson Lambert, a Virginia transfer, but if he ends up starting games that is a sign of the level of talent redshirt sophomore Brice Ramsey and redshirt junior Faton Bauta bring to the table. Georgia will add the No. 1 quarterback recruit in the country, Jacob Eason, in 2016.

Sports on Earth's Matt Brown thinks Georgia sophomore RB Nick Chubb is the best running back in the country.

Many would side with Ezekiel Elliott of Ohio State, but you can't go wrong either way. "The 5-foot-10, 220-pound sophomore packs a punch, running with a punishing style but also possessing nimble feet and superb vision," Brown wrote. Chubb had 1,547 yards with 14 touchdowns (7.06 yards per carry) last season despite not getting starters' carries until Week 6. After Todd Gurley's suspension, he averaged 165 yards per game. "It's hard to know exactly what the Georgia offense will look like as it moves from Mike Bobo to new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, but the answer should be obvious: Get the ball to Chubb as much as possible," Brown wrote.
Jun 9 - 6:31 PM

NFL Media believes Georgia HC Mark Richt's "calm demeanor and offensive mind would likely do just fine in the NFL."

Richt has been excelling for 15 years in Athens, so it'd be a little surprising if he decided to test NFL waters. Opportunities will be out there if he does so, however. "He's been running a pro-style offense with plenty of shotgun mixed in for ages, and has a very solid track record in the tough SEC," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Bryan Fischer.

The Sports Quotient doesn't believe Virginia transfer QB Greyson Lambert is "the type of player who makes a team like Georgia immediately better" and was puzzled by his choice of destination.

The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Lambert, who fell out of favor in Virginia, chose to enter the Bulldogs' crowded QB competition with Brice Ramsey, Faton Bauta, and Jacob Park. Ramsey and Lambert are the favorites, though Georgia’s new offensive coordinator, Brian Schottenheimer, may only use the winner for one season with No. 1 quarterback prospect Jacob Eason coming in 2016.
