The loss of a player like D'Andre Swift, who was picked 35th overall in the 2020 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions, would cripple running games at most programs. Most programs, however, are not Georgia.
The Bulldogs should once again have one of college football's best running games, even without Swift, as the dynamic duo of Zamir White and James Cook should keep the Bulldogs offense once again near the top of the SEC.
White is a better runner between the tackles, as his ability to power through tacklers is matched only by the former 5-star's explosiveness as soon as he finds a crease. Look for him to be a first-round pick as soon as he is draft eligible.
Cook was used more as a pass-catcher last year, but the 190-pound jitterbug looks like a guy that should take on an increased role in Todd Monken's aggressive offense.
They only thing that could derail White and Cook is their own offensive coordinator, as Monken is a pass first guy that would love nothing more than to throw deep passes down the field all game long. If Monken realizes how special these two backs are and lets the run game dictate things, the Georgia offense could really be something special.
