The Bulldogs potentially have a very interesting depth chart at the QB position next season. Aaron Murray (Sr.), Hutson Mason (RJr.), Christian Lemay (RSo.), and Brice Ramsey (Fr.) figure to be Top 4 on the Depth Chart next season. However, there is a lot that can happen before then.
First, Aaron Murray could declare himself eligible for the NFL Draft. This season Aaron Murray was the No. 2 in the Nation in Passing Efficiency, raised his completion percentage to 65%, and cut down his interception total to 8. It was a very impressive season. Also, Tony Dungy spoke very highly of Aaron Murray saying that he would take Murray before any other quarterback in this years draft, even at No. 1 Overall. The question is how do NFL GM's and scouts feel about Murray. At 6'0 tall he is far from the prototypical NFL QB but so are guys like Drew Brees and Russell Wilson. It will be a big choice for Aaron and could potentially have a major effect on the rest of the Dawgs QB depth chart.
Second, Hutson Mason took a redshirt season this year in order to create a year of seperation between himself and Aaron Murray. However, if Murray decides to come back to Athens for his senior season is Mason willing to stick around or will he transfer to a smaller school where he can play immediately? It would not shock me since Mason has repeatedly talked about having to do what is best for himself and I don't blame him. Whether he stays or transfers could have an impact on Christian Lemay.
Christian Lemay is currently involved in a battle for 3rd on the Depth Chart with Parker Welch, however I believe that he is more talented than Welch and will earn a spot ahead of him. However, if Murray decides to return for his senior season and Mason choose to wait 1 more season behind Murray then Lemay may decide he should transfer. There have been grumblings of that happening since Welch passed Lemay on the depth chart.
Also, you have Brice Ramsey arriving on campus in January who will be able to participate in offseason workouts and Spring Practice. At 6'3 205 pounds, with a rocket arm, and underrated athleticism he is the prototypical SEC Quarterback. His fundamentals are well beyond his age and he could prove to Lemay and Mason that he is the heir apparent to Murray during the spring causing one of them to transfer before the fall.
Finally, you can't forget Faton Bauta who is 6'3 225 pounds and has a lot of natural talent and is a big physical runner. UGA is not going to suddenly transform into a spread option team however he could give the Dawgs a different dynamic with the ability to run the Wildcat. It will be interesting to see if they use him for that in short yardage and near the goalline.
As you can tell there is a lot that could happen with the QB roster for the Dawgs in the offseason. It will be one of the most interesting things to watch during bowl practice and throughout the offseason. What do you think will happen?
