NFL Draft challenges bring out the ‘old’ Stetson Bennett at Georgia Football Pro Day

ATHENS — It seemed the “old” Stetson Bennett was back at Georgia on Wednesday, his mind back into the football groove with the 2023 NFL Draft fast approaching.

There was no talk of back-to-back championships, all-time greatness or wanting or needing to prove anything to the coaches, fans or media who doubted him or his team.

Bennett, instead, kept the focus on football and the process he has been through since the NFL Combine.

“Missed a few (throws), but I thought we ran good routes and everybody caught it well, so I think it went pretty good,” Bennett said, summing up his 50-plus-throw Pro Day workout at the Payne Indoor Athletic Center.

The work Bennett put in the past three years to improve his throwing technique and footwork has paid off in the form of a quick release, tight spirals, and adequate accuracy and velocity.

But as Bennett is the first to say, this “combine stuff” only goes so far.
