The Bulldogs defensive back has kept a keen eye on both potential Georgia starting quarterbacks in Carson Beck and Brock Vandagriff. As the battle rages on, Bullard elaborated on his excitement watching the battle play out, but made are to point out the respect and confidence he has in both throwers.
“I like both of them. I feel like both of them can help our team,” explained Bullard. “Two different style quarterbacks. You know, I just feel like (Georgia offensive coordinator) [Mike] Bobo’s going to put the best guy on the field in the best situations.
“So excited to see those guys battle, but like I said, both of those guys can help our team win and take our team to the next level.”
As for watching how both Beck and Vandagriff have grown over their time at Georgia, Bullard was especially smitten with the way he’s watching the latter improve.
“Both of them, I can’t really speak to Carson because I wasn’t here when he came in, but as far as like Brock, me and Brock came in together, and over the years, it’s amazing just know that he’s dialed in,” added Bullard. “Brock’s one of those guys that’s the first one in the meeting room and the last to leave, so just knowing that his mindset is set on us becoming a better team, I know we’re in good hands.”
Nevertheless, Georgia hasn’t made a decision on which quarterback they’ll rock with in 2023, but Bullard will be ready and roaring to go either way. While the position battle continues on offense, the Georgia defensive back is learning a new position himself, as well.
Bullard is moving from cornerback to safety in 2023, and he’s having a good time learning the ins and outs of his new position thus far.
“It has definitely been fun,” Bullard said after Georgia’s G-Day game, via Dawgs HW. “Football is going to be football. I still play defensive back. It’s not like I moved to receiver or anything like that. I love it, man. The coaches brought me in and told me they were thinking about a position change. Like I said, it was definitely a challenge because you’re going into another world as far as safety. Safety is basically another linebacker.
“You’ve got to know because there’s so many checks in our defense but I feel like it was amazing, man. Just dialing in and the coaches helping me and really just taking that ownership and doing what I can to make the team better.”
It should be another fun season for Georgia and Javon Bullard in 2023. The Bulldogs will continue to be the team to beat, regardless of their quarterback.
