Ray Drew was credited with a pair of sacks in Tuesday’s closed Georgia scrimmage, but he saw it differently.
“I think I came away from the day with at least three or four sacks and a couple of tackles for loss,” Drew said of a scrimmage where quarterbacks actually can’t be hit. “Overall, it was a pretty good day.”

“From what I noticed, Ray Drew was really unblockable today,” quarterback Hutson Mason said. “That’s always good to see. He’s a big guy, a strong guy.”
The 6-foot-5, 284-pound Drew worked with the second unit, but said he thinks that will change.
“I believe that by the time the season rolls around, Sterling Bailey and myself will be sharing a good amount of playing time,” said Drew, a junior from Thomasville. “I wouldn’t say that I deserve to be a one or Sterling deserves to be a one, but I know we both come from similar backgrounds. We both played in the (U.S.) Army All-American Game. Sterling is a heck of a player. I believe talent-wise we’re right there together and we’re both going to make an impact this upcoming season.”
