The curious case of Watts Dantzler

Going into his last season as a Bulldog, Watts Dantzler's best known for a Greyhound bus trip he took on spring break a couple years ago. He's yet to start a game and has battled through some injuries. But last season he played some meaningful snaps as well as logging time on special teams in every game. And now he's competing at both tackle and guard on an offensive line that is reinventing itself to some degree.

Richt has said Dantzler's best shot is at guard. He thinks. Dantzler himself has complete trust in Coach Friend and is more concerned with helping the team win a championship. But fellow lineman and best friend David Andrews has the money quote:
"Watts and I are roommates and best friends, and I think this could be his year if he wanted it to be. At the end of the day, it comes down to him wanting it, and I am kind of liking what I'm seeing."
