Isaac Nauta is the only true freshman on this list, but he is here for a reason. When else have we seen a tight end earn a five-star recruiting rating coming out of high school? Nauta could become an absolute star playing in Jim Chaney’s offense the next few years. We’re talking All-SEC, All-American, Mackey Award all by the time he is a true junior in 2018.
Nauta will stand as a difference maker in the receiving game for the Georgia Bulldogs from day one. He will make both Jeb Blazevich and Jackson Harris better tight ends in 2016 and vice versa. Nauta’s speed, physicality, sure-handedness, and route running may end up giving the Dawgs their own version of Rob Gronkowski the next three seasons.
While he does come to Athens will a ton of hype, Isaac Nauta is the type of receiving threat that can positively impact the UGA receiving game as a true freshman. Chaney will want to lean on his tight ends in 2016, as they are one of the deepest position groups Georgia has entering the season.
Whether it is Jacob Eason, Greyson Lambert, or Brice Ramsey lining up at quarterback for the Dawgs, Isaac Nauta is the type of impact playmaker that will make all three pocket passers look better by just having him on the field.
