Georgia have reason to be excited about the status of their football program in Athens. They are the reigning domestic champions, have a favorable 2022 schedule and have a plethora of talented prospects on their roster heading into the fall.
The practical part of the spring of the offseason is to assess what you have on your roster, where the holes are, how to fix problems and improve. It’s completely different from regular season workouts. In the regular season, it’s about developing the first and second units. In the spring, it’s all about finding out who this first and second team is.
Which means competition. And with competition come those who beat the rest. Our Saturday G-Day Scrimmage MVPs.
Carson Beck, QB
Beck did enough on Saturday to make a cemented starter sweat. He was the only Georgia quarterback to complete more than 50% of his passes, throwing for 274 yards, and played without a turnover. Kirby Smart always says he’s looking for quarterbacks to just operate the offense, well from his first pass to his last, Beck handled the offense and played into himself. Leaving some to wonder what the future of the Georgia quarterback job looks like beyond Stetson Bennett.
It’s clear, Stetson Bennett is Georgia’s starting quarterback, but that doesn’t mean Carson Beck isn’t an SEC-caliber starter, and that doesn’t mean he wasn’t the best quarterback. -back of Saturday’s scrum.
Oscar Delp, TE
Delp drew comparisons to Brock Bowers coming out of high school for a reason. He’s 6’4, 225 pounds and runs within 4.5 seconds in the 40. He’s a complete and total mismatch for defensive backs and linebackers. Although what made Bowers’ freshman season so special and what made Delp so unique was their ability to run with the football after the catch.
He caught 9 of 7 targets for 91 yards, including 26 yards after the catch.

Javon Bullard, DB
It takes a special football player to play STAR in Georgia. You need to be able to cover like a corner, play the ball like a safety, run down the aisle like a linebacker, and blitz like an edge defender at times. It’s not only the hardest position to learn, but it’s the most demanding position to play, and to do it at 5’9, 190 pounds, you have to be crazy or incredibly talented.
Bullard is both. Rewind and watch the G-Day scrum and see how many different ways Javon Bullard flashed from star position. You’ll see the No. 22 break up passes in the backfield, cover the likes of Dominick Blaylock in the slot, then tackle Kendall Milton at the line of scrimmage. A firework ready to explode at any moment.
Tyrion Ingram-Dawkins, DL
Georgia needed someone to step in defensively in the absence of Tramel Walthour for the scrimmage, and Ingram-Dawkins answered the bell. one sack, 1.5 TFL, 2.0 total tackles and a start with the first team defense. He showed why so many people in the recruiting industry were all on TID. He’s lost a lot of weight since entering college and has gone from someone who played 3-tech in high school to someone who now plays defensive end for Georgia.
