NFL types note more zip from Georgia QB Stetson Bennett, but more to prove entering Missouri game

ATHENS — Stetson Bennett leads Georgia into its first night game of the year at Missouri looking to help the No. 1-ranked Bulldogs make a statement after last week’s lackluster outing.

Bennett wasn’t sharp, throwing his first interception of the year, and neither were his teammates in a 39-22 win over a Mid-American Conference opponent that hardly seemed befitting of a program many believe to be the best in the country.

The college football world will be watching, but so, too, will NFL scouts as they assess this year’s Georgia talent.

Bennett has aroused some curiosity despite his relatively small stature and the late bloom nature of his career.

“I talked to a scout who said coming into the year, based off of last year’s tape, (he’s) seventh round (or) free agent,” ESPN NFL Draft analyst Todd McShay said on the SEC Network on Friday.
