Joe Robbins/Getty ImagesGarrison Smith has been a key cog in Georgia's defensive line since a big performance last season against Georgia Tech.ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia coach Mark Richt immediately singled out one player last week when asked whom he envisioned playing a larger role in the second half of the season.
After watching Garrison Smith play an increasingly effective role in the Bulldogs’ defensive line rotation, Richt said he expects the junior defensive end to continue his emergence as the season progresses.
“Garrison has been playing, but I think he should play more snaps,” Richt said. “For two reasons: One, to help other guys get a little bit of a rest, and that he has been productive when he’s been in there, so you feel like he probably should get a little more of a rotation than he’s getting right now.”
