The University of Georgia Football program will wrap up its spring practice period on Thursday with their final scrimmage on Saturday. Here's what we've learned.

The spring practice portion of the offseason is a tremendous opportunity for college football programs to evaluate and develop their roster. You have 15 practices and an intrasquad scrimmage to find out as much as you can about your football team prior to the second transfer portal window on April 16th.

Georgia will have their final practice of the spring circuit on Thursday. With G-Day's intrasquad scheduled for Saturday, what all have we learned about this roster this spring?

Georgia's Offensive Line is Elite
There's been no secret about how talented this offensive line group is. Kirby Smart told ESPN they have an opportunity to be "special" this fall and sources indicated during the first of two scrimmages this spring they dominated the defensive line. They had to replace Sedrick Van Pran at center with Jared Wilson, but by all accounts, they are going to be a really fun unit to watch this fall. The goal is to have as many playable offensive lineman as possible, Saturday will give us an idea of who those players are.

Georgia's Hit on Some Transfers
Georgia landed 6 transfers this offseason — Xavier McLeod, Colbie Young, London Humphreys, Michael Jackson III, Trevor Etienne, and Benjamin Yurosek. They have five of those individuals on campus this spring and they've been active participants. Colbie Young and Trevor Etienne have had sources raving this spring. Young is a 6'4, 200+ pound wide receiver who has been a mismatch issue during practice from what sources have inidcated. He's a definite redzone presence already for Georgia. Etienne has experienced some trouble this spring but has gone about practice at the rate they expected this spring. He's shaping up to be the No. 1 running back this fall for Georgia.

Gunner Stockton's Team in 2025?
Stockton isn't guaranteed to be the guy in the fall of 2025 after Carson Beck leaves for the NFL Draft. Kirby Smart has been very honest about needing to add QB to the room this transfer portal window. However, all signs point to Gunner Stockton having had an incredible spring. He even noted to the media that he had a perfect practice at one point this spring, having not thrown an incompletion for the entire practice. Stockton has shown that after waiting his time, he should be the guy in 2025.
