Georgia Moving Touted Athlete Mecole Hardman From DB To WR

|

The Georgia Bulldogs are gearing up for what could be their best season in a number of years.

After going 8-5 last season, the Bulldogs are returning a number of talented, experienced players to their 2017 roster.

According to the Athens Banner-Herald, one player who saw limited reps on the defensive side of the ball figures to see a lot more this season. Only he’ll be doing it in the offensive phase, lining up as a wide receiver.

Mecole Hardman, the No. 1 ranked pure athlete in the 2017 draft class will be lining up as a pass-catcher in an attempt to recoup some of the production that was lost to the NFL Draft.

The Georgia Bulldogs lost Isaiah McKenzie, their top receiver in 2016 to the professional ranks. They return quarterback Jacob Eason, and running backs Nick Chubb, and Sony Michel for the upcoming year. They’ll also have their top five pass-catchers after McKenzie on their depth chart again in 2017.

If Hardman is able to contribute in any way to the 2017 version of the Georgia Bulldogs, they could be a difficult team to beat. They’ve been a hot topic on SEC Media Days, and are one of the favorites (after Alabama) to come out of college footballs most competitive conference this season.
