Georgia returns the top-2 receivers in the SEC, per PFF

The college football champion Georgia Bulldogs had three receivers announce their intention to transfer after the national title game.

That is on top of losing star receiver George Pickens to the NFL draft

Former Bulldog Jermaine Burton elected to transfer to Alabama, while other Georgia receiver reserves Justin Robinson (Mississippi State) and Jaylen Johnson (ECU) transferred out of Athens as well.

DawgNation shouldn’t be worried quite yet.

On Tuesday, junior receiver Kearis Jackson announced his return to the Bulldogs.

Jackson, Georgia’s leading receiver in 2020, will rejoin two other Dawgs, who according to Pro Football Focus, are the top receivers returning in the SEC.

Freshman tight end Brock Bowers (92.1) and redshirt freshman Ladd McConkey (79.1) are the two highest-graded returning pass catchers in the SEC.

Freshman tight end Brock Bowers won a slew of awards for his explosive first season, which set a UGA record for a tight end.

Bowers racked up 882 yards on 56 catches, a whopping 14-yard average, with 14 total touchdowns. That’s 30 more catches than Georgia’s second-leading receiver, Ladd McConkey.

McConkey caught 31 passes for 447 yards (14.4 avg.) with five touchdowns on the year.

With Jackson, Bowers and McConkey back with tight end Darnell Washington and a healthy Arian Smith out wide, the Bulldogs should have plenty of talented options to choose from in the fall.
