John Theus figures to be a pivotal player this year on Georgia’s offensive line, whether at left or tight tackle.
Tight end Jay Rome, returning from surgery on his right foot that kept him out all spring, certainly will have the opportunity to the fill the void in the passing game left by the departure of Arthur Lynch.
You can watch and listen to what each had to say about their first two practices below.
Theus is splitting time between right and left tackle.
Theus is listed on the depth chart as a possible starter at both after being a starter at right tackle his first two seasons. That could say something about his abilities.
“I guess or we don’t know what we’re doing yet,” Theus said laughing.
Rome on what he’s done so far in practice: “I’ve basically been working in and doing what I feel comfortable doing. I’m getting a lot better. I can see a whole bunch of improvement. Still a little rusty, a little shaky on a few different things but it’s just some stuff that I’m going to have to work through and just keep getting better every day and just monitor and just keep getting better.”
