Experience and depth give the Bulldogs reason to be optimistic at the wide-out positions. Malcolm Mitchell (6-1, 190, Jr.) went through spring drills and the early part of the regular season in 2012 as a defensive back, then returned full-time to receiver and finished with 40 catches for 572 yards and four touchdowns to rank second on the team. Chris Conley (6-3, 206, Jr.) added 342 yards and six touchdowns, including two scores - one on a 87-yard catch-and-run - in the bowl. Rantavious Wooten (5-10, 176, Sr.) had two touchdowns among his 15 catches, while Justin Scott-Wesley (5-11, 206, RSo.) picked up a score in his six grabs.
Michael Bennett (6-3, 205, Jr.) is recovering from a torn ACL that sidelined him after he made 24 catches for 345 yards and four touchdowns in the first five games last year. While he was limited in the spring, he will be ready for the start of the regular season. Georgia's coaches got their first look this spring at Jonathon Rumph (6-5, 208, Jr.), who transferred from Holmes (Miss.) Community College. He caught 45 passes for 569 yards last season and had two touchdowns in the G-Day Game.
The Bulldogs also return Rhett McGowan (6-0, 180, Sr.), Blake Tibbs (6-2, 179, RFr.), Michael Erdman (5-10, 191, Jr.), Clay Johnson (6-1, 171, RFr.), Jamal Payette (6-3, 190, Sr.), Kenneth Towns (6-3, 201, RFr.) and Curtis Wyatt (6-1, 205, Sr.). Tramel Terry (6-0, 184, Fr.) arrived early as well but he had to rehab a knee injury.
