How We Replace Orson Charles

   Orson is off the the NFL. Look for him to be another Georgia TE who ends up being a successful pro. Obviously, he can catch it. Runs good routes. Physical enough to bring it down in traffic. I see Orson being a 2nd round pick, by a team with a west coast scheme. Probably the second or third TE off the board. 
   But how do we replace him at Georgia? I believe we are in good shape at TE, even though the offense lost Charles and Aron White. But Coach Bobo will be changing the scheme. Orson and Aron were good receiving TE's, who we flexed out a lot.
   The new guys have a different skill set. Can't wait to see redshirt freshman Jay Rome take the field. Jay is 6'6" in cleats and 260 pounds. Big enough to block and also a big target. Junior Arthur Lynch is a physical blocker, at 6'5" 270 pounds. Coach Bobo will probably be using 2 TE sets and pounding the rock a little more. 
   Rome's uncle was an awesome HS TE at Valdosta High. His Dad was the most talented WR that ever put on a Valdosta uniform. Both were highly competitive. Jay comes from good stock. He looks like a combination of both. Can block. Can catch. Team guy, who wants to win. 
   Orson Charles will be a success in the NFL. But he leaves the position in good hands.

    Buck, I know you love and defend fellow UGA QB alumn Mike Bobo, and I understand, but could you ever see yourself as OC at UGA?

    I think you would be a great play caller.

    I think Ty Smith will fall into Orson's role just fine I saw him play this year against Camden in the playoffs and he is the real deal big and hard to bring down, has great hands, and is surprisingly fast he's defenantly faster than orson. I think he will be a great one. Even though we do have depth at that position I still would be surprised if he red shirts, he will instantly become our best pass catching tight end, and I've also saw some of Jay Romes games in highschool but Ty Smith is really good.
