Following a remarkable two-year stint by Stetson Bennett, capped off by back-to-back National Championships in 2021 and 2022, Georgia was in search of his replacement after Bennett was drafted in the fourth round by Los Angeles.

In hindsight, it's safe to say the Bulldogs found their replacement for Bennett in Beck, who was an overlooked yet integral piece in Georgia's success last season. For reference, Beck completed 302-417 (73.2%) of his passes for 3,941 passing yards, 24 touchdowns, six interceptions, and a 167.9 passer rating in 14 starts.

Based on Beck's play, the junior quarterback from Jacksonville earned an All-SEC Second Team selection by the coaches and was a finalist for The Manning Award. Coupled with Georgia finishing the season with a 13-1 record and a 63-3 thrashing of Florida State in the Orange Bowl, there's no doubt that Beck has a solid first season in Athens.

Beck, who measured in at 6'4" and 215 pounds, has a prototypical frame with good, lean mass, but isn't as strong or athletic as Sanders or Milroe. Even so, Beck has enough mobility and straight-line speed to sneak through gaps for solid gains on the ground, often times to ice the game.

Above all, Ward displays a natural pocket presence and instinctively feels pressure. Because of a remarkable poise against the pass rush; Beck's unflappable demeanor under duress is a testament to his game maturity, an area that will only improve throughout the 2024 season under head coach Kirby Smart.
