    Clayton will probably only play defense in certain situations (big 3rd downs), but I think he is too valuable on offense.

    How do you think our secondary matches against UGA receivers? Seeing that Gibson is out for Sat, I don't see many big plays.

    I think we'll see a good bit of Clayton on defense, mostly on third downs and definite passing situations. I'm basing that on the fact that Saban put Clayton in on defense for the first 3rd down against Arizona before he knew we would totally blow them out - then after we started dominating he didnt play Clayton again as if to keep it secret.

    I have to agree with tigerfanatic. Unless Clayton is 100% recovered from his ankle injury the only way we will see him on defense will be crucial 3rd down situations.

    As far as the Georgia passing game goes, there is still plenty of firepower.

    Damien Gary, Reggie Brown, Michael Thompson, Sean Bailey, etc.
    And look for some special plays developed for Shockley.

    But I think overall, you will see more running by the Georgia backfield, and more passing to the Georgia backfield this weekend than typical.
