Outside of obviously Todd Gurley, I believe that Michael Bennett might be Georgia’s most valuable player on offense.
He won’t burn you as a deep threat, but he is as clutch and sure handed as they come. When the Dawgs need a first down or a big catch, he seems like he is always the one making the play.
Saturday, his numbers were just so-so. He did lead the team in receiving, but only had 60 yards on 5 catches. The whole passing game as a whole was pedestrian.
But something I noticed watching the replay yesterday morning stuck out. Bennett’s blocking was amazing. Georgia got their big runs on the outside, and it seemed like during all those runs to the perimeter, Bennett was right there throwing a downfield block to help the backs break free. It is a cliche to say “things that don’t show up in the box score”, and it is absolutely true in his case.
