Smart on Salyer’s left tackle makes his debut
Jamaree Salyer He made his debut last Saturday in a left tackle against Arkansas, and the head coach Kirby Smart Satisfied with what he saw.
“Jamari did a great job. I thought he helped lead this group. He said on Wednesday’s SEC conference call: “He may have more experience than others. “He is still relatively new to this position; he works very hard.”
Salyer’s first two games were the correct choice for the Bulldogs, including the team’s sugar bowl victory over Baylor.
According to competitors, this is after graduating from Pace College in Atlanta to become the nation’s top guard.
But after good friend and former teammate (whether in high school or UGA) Andrew Thomas left, Sayer moved to a left tackle, and this number will become his home for the Bulldogs offensive line in the second half of this year.
“As the level of the game improves, he will be more and more challenged. We know that this is one of the toughest places in the SEC. No one is perfect over there. We lost two first rounds on the edge, you realize It’s difficult to participate in this area,” Smart said. “But he really worked hard, he was very responsible for it, and he met very good passers every day in practice.”
More quarterback talk
Wide receiver Kyrias Jackson There is no hint as to who will become quarterback on Saturday. But no matter who does it, he needs more help from his teammates.
“I don’t think I have done a good job of keeping men comfortable. This week is different. All quarterbacks have shown different attitudes, one is ready and the other becomes better. “Everyone knows that we are going Zhou’s performance is unacceptable. This week, we have to go out and play fast and make sure we do everything in the right way. “
Jackson’s comments echoed Smart’s views earlier in the day, and Smart was again asked about his quarterback on the SEC conference call.
After discussing this topic on Monday and Tuesday, during the SEC teleconference, the first question raised by a national reporter was about the pecking order of Stetson Bennett, D’Wan Mathis and JT Daniels in Saturday’s game.
Smart, obviously didn’t bite.
“With D’Wan, he is working and he is constantly improving. He is growing as a player and learning from his mistakes. “But we are also working hard to make the players around him play better, which will make He was successful,” Smart said. “Same as JT. He is continuing to work; he is doing well. I am glad he was cleared. He can play football now and I am very happy to see his performance. “
On Tuesday, Smart provided the latest information on the status of the proximal injury Tre’McKitty And offensive winger Clay Weber.
McKitty, who underwent arthroscopic surgery in the past three weeks, had the chance to make his debut against Auburn after missing his first chance against Arkansas.
At the same time, Weber still had doubts after Smart believed it was an ankle injury.
On Wednesday, I asked Smart about Tommy Bush, a broadband receiver in Arkansas. Although he did not provide specific reasons, Smart pointed out that Bush’s absence was actually related to health.
“It just depends on how deep the injury and other things need to go. We have five guys that we are satisfied with. The good news is that the young people get a lot of representation. Kenny got together in the camp, so we can get Kendall (Milton) and Dai Jun (Edwards) more representatives. I have confidence in these five guys. They work hard and do a good job every day. Not that we have to play all five games in every game , But we have confidence in these five games.” – Shrewd how deep he would go with the guard.
“He did a great job; he worked very hard, and this is one of his goals this year. Obviously, he was able to nail more people within 10 people, and with the help of some very good machine gunners Can do this.” – Jake Camarda’s smart performance on Saturday.
“I think so. I think this has always been the case. The way of coaching is that. When you are coaching, maybe at the school you have been to or playing in the school you have played, I always That said. I thought it was a factor in some of our games last year. Of course it was. It doesn’t necessarily mean that we don’t want them. We want many of these people and be defeated! You will play on your shoulders. Bargaining chip, because this is your home state and you may have more families in the game. Yes, I think it must be that way. Same as the kids on the Alabama roster.” – Auburn University’s Georgia players are smart and hands-on.
