The running back position is always filled with talent for the Georgia Bulldogs. In 2023, Georgia will bring back a few important components for the running back room.
Kenny McIntosh, the Dawgs’ top rusher from the previous year, left for the NFL draft. Georgia’s leading receiving back was McIntosh.
Georgia, however, keeps the remaining running back space from 2022. Due to injuries, the Bulldogs had some depth issues in the spring, but the running back room seems rather strong.
Who in Georgia’s running back room is projected to start in 2023?
RB1 (rushing downs): Kendall Milton
In rushing scenarios during the 2023 season, Kendall Milton should serve as Georgia’s primary backfield option. For Milton to make the most of his senior season, he must maintain his health. In the previous season, an injury forced him to sit out two games. Due to a hamstring injury, Milton was sidelined for a significant portion of the spring. On the other hand, he is expected to be fit for the regular season.
RB1 (passing downs): Daijun Edwards
The passing game at Georgia is heavily reliant on the performance of the running back position. Kenny McIntosh finished the 2022 season as the third-leading receiver for the Bulldogs. Who will pick up his production responsibilities?
RB3: Branson Robinson
Branson Even though Robinson will just be a sophomore in 2023, he has the potential to be Georgia’s best back in rushing situations. That is the level of Robinson’s skill. He has a brutal running style, and he just came off a performance in the national championship in which he scored two touchdowns.
