After transferring from Wake Forest, Jamie Newman has the tools to revive the Georgia Bulldogs offense as he vies to improve his 2021 NFL Draft stock
Ever since the Georgia Bulldogs lost the National Championship two years ago in dramatic fashion to the Alabama Crimson Tide, their offense has not found the same groove. After choosing Jake Fromm over both Jacob Eason and Justin Fields, the Bulldogs may have finally found the right quarterback to run their offense in Wake Forest graduate transfer Jamie Newman.
Just as Joe Burrow did a year ago, using a change in scenery to launch his draft stock to the moon, Newman has a real chance to hear his name called in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Fromm may have been holding the offense back due to a lack of arm strength to push the ball down the field, but Kirby Smart has not been a benefactor either.
However, the dynamic duo of Newman and new offensive coordinator Todd Monken could light up the scoreboard in Athens, Georgia this fall. An Air Raid guru at Oklahoma State, then in the NFL with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Cleveland Browns, Monken is set to bring his fireworks and philosophy to the talent Bulldogs’ offense.
As he is set to begin his new era at the University of Georgia, here is a scouting report on Jamie Newman.
