Demetris Robertson arrived in Athens with big expectations after he hauled in 50 receptions for 767 yards and seven touchdowns as a freshman at the University of California. However, despite showing glimpses here and there, Demetris has not lived up to those lofty expectations placed on him at UGA.
The problem wasn’t his playmaking ability but opportunities. Although he has shined at times, he is never on the field long enough to sustain the momentum. The biggest reason is that the previous OC’s put more emphasis on run blocking than playmaking. With a new offensive coordinator, look for Demetris to get the kind of playing time needed to have an explosive season. Todd Monken and his staff will find creative ways to get the ball in Robinson’s hand and I predict he will challenge the 1000 total yards mark this season.
