Stetson Bennett is the poster child for the kind of football player who is easily overlooked but just gets the job done. That has been the case since Bennett arrived at Georgia.
Since then, he has the kind of story you could literally turn into a movie.
He seemed destined to be nothing more than a backup for the Bulldogs who have had several highly-touted prospects on the team such as Jake Fromm, Jamie Newman, D’Wan Mathis and JT Daniels during his time there.
Bennett managed to work his way into the starting lineup and he became the quarterback of the national champions last year, taking out No. 1 Alabama in the process en route to being named the offensive MVP of that game.
This season, Bennett has the Bulldogs as the favorite to repeat that feat and he was invited to New York as a finalist for the Heisman Trophy.
Once that is all said and done, he will become an NFL draft prospect where he will be knocked for his lack of size and athleticism and while all of those points will be valid, he could become an excellent backup quarterback for a team at some point with the ability to come in and lead a team to victory, even for a stretch of games if the starter were to go down.
