Georgia coach confident in offensive line and receivers

May 9, 2007

Albany - Georgia coach Mark Richt is not hearing any questions this spring about his starting quarterback.

Richt though is being asked who will protect Matthew Stafford this fall.

The Georgia football coach making his annual spring stop in Albany Wednesday night.

Richt told the audience that Georgia's offensive line will have three starters who have never played a down in division one football.

But he is confident the line will be fine based on their performance in spring drills.

Another area of concern is receivers after Georgia widouts struggled holding on to the bullets from the strong-armed quarterback.

Coach Richt believes experience will make the receiving corps an asset this season.

Mark Richt said "They have been around long enough. I think we have got four seniors and three juniors. It is time for them to step up and play big. We have got some young guys who are putting some pressure on them."

Mark Richt did tell the Bulldog fans that offensive guard Ben Harden from Perry made his qualifying score and will be eligible this fall.

Perry signed with Georgia in 2006 but spent last year at Hargrave Military Academy.
