Morning Coffee: Underrated Dawgs

Monday, December 10

(Photo by UGA Sports Communications) took a look at the SEC's most underappreciated players from this past season, pointing out players who didn't make the first or second All-SEC teams.

No. 1 on the list was Georgia QB Aaron Murray (who is also getting some early mention for the Heisman next year).

So that gets you thinking: Who were some of Georgia's other underappreciated players when it came to postseason awards this year?

Here's a few ...

Jordan Jenkins
Jenkins was a no-show on the Freshman All-SEC team. And while his role was part-time for Georgia for a large chunk of this season, he is listed in the UGA stats with 4 sacks and a whopping 21 quarterback hurries. That is the second-most in the SEC among all players. Only teammate Jarvis Jones (33) was credited with more.

Tavarres King
The competition for postseason honors at wide receiver is always crowded, but TK put up some very solid numbers as a senior. His 846 receiving yards led UGA's team and ranked eighth in the SEC. He also had 8 receiving TDs, which was fifth in the league, and his yard-per-catch average of 21.7 was almost five yards better than any of the league's other top 15 receivers.

Shawn Williams
Safety Bacarri Rambo continued to get the nod for postseason awards despite the fact that Williams totalled 87 tackles, ranking second on Georgia's defense behind only Alec Ogletree. Hurting Williams, however, was the fact that he did not intercept a pass all season.



Georgia's Capital One Bowl preparation truly gets rolling Wednesday, with practice preceeded by the team's bowl media day. Mark Richt's press conference is scheduled for noon.
