Ray Drew had a unique perspective when it came to dropping out of the starting defensive line during spring practice.
“It’s about like making Kool-Aid growing up,” Drew said. “You’ve got to figure out which one tastes better, one with four scoops of sugar or one with five scoops. You’ve got to see what makes best with what and who plays best with whom, especially with the new staff coming in.”
Drew said he worked with the second and third team in Saturday’s first spring scrimmage and did not get any first-team work.
Asked about Drew’s spring, coach Mark Richt said after the scrimmage that the senior has “done alright. He’s been banged up a little bit. I would say he’s not been kicking tail right now. I think he’s got a lot of improvement to do.”
Drew at least put up good numbers Saturday. He was credited with three tackles, two tackles for loss and a sack.
“Up until we kick off against Clemson,” Drew said, “I don’t think anybody’s secure in a job or set.”
