DawgNation links: Next Champ Bailey?

By ESPN.com staff

David Ching writes: With a role in all three aspects of the game, Malcolm Mitchell faces the question of whether he can pull off the sizable task, much as UGA legend Champ Bailey did back in the day. The Freshman All-SEC player thinks that uncertainty is a good thing.

Ching Insider: Georgia’s starting offense and defense largely dominated against their second-team counterparts in Georgia’s first preseason scrimmage -- and that was disappointing to some of the starters.

Kipp Adams writes Insider: 2014 quarterback DeShaun Watson of Gainesville, Ga., has put up some video-game-like numbers in the past two seasons, and for that effort he has received early and prestigious postseason invites: to Rising Seniors, the Atlanta all-star weekend, and to January’s Under Armour All-America Game.

Radi Nabulsi writes Insider: 2014 receiver Nate Brown is on the cusp of becoming a big name in recruiting, and he’s ready for the 2012 season and an invite to the Georgia Junior Bowl in December to help determine his fate.

Ching Insider: Around the Hedges in 80 Days -- 23 days to kickoff. It is possible for freshman O-lineman Greg Pyke to play in some capacity this fall, but it would not be shocking to see him take a redshirt like Bulldogs offensive linemen often do.

Nabulsi: UGA receiver Rantavious Wooten talks about coming back from the injuries of a car accident and weighs in on the issue of concussions in football.
