  Draft Scout by Conference

  Bennett, after transferring back into the program and receiving a scholarship, backed up Jake Fromm last season and received a plethora of reps on the scout team. That experience was key to Bennett to earning his first-career start Saturday, but Smart never felt 100% sure the return would happen. He called it a "unique situation" for many reasons, but the fact that Bennett signed his national letter of intent around midnight in December validated the strange circumstance - along with the announcement being temporarily deleted on social media and many thinking that promoting the signing was a technical mistake. "We knew he would be a productive player and a good player," Smart said. "Stetson has never lacked in confidence for himself."

A year after returning from Jones Community College in Mississippi, the quarterback picture became more blurred for Bennett. Georgia brought in two transfers - Jamie Newman and JT Daniels - to compete for the starting role. Smart admitted Saturday that Georgia brought Newman in with the intention of starting. Daniels had the caliber to match his five-star recruiting moniker. Bennett was an afterthought when the Bulldogs seemingly had an overload of options. Newman opted out in August, but it still didn't seem to change much for Bennett. He wasn't going to be the season-opening starter. Everyone spoke about D'Wan Mathis or Daniels. The coaching staff had similar thoughts, too, and Bennett might not have been seen as a viable candidate. Bennett had to inquire about his role. His answer came under the spotlight, and the former two-star prospect beat out a list of highly-touted names. - Macon Telegraph
