Kadin Semonza QB vs. Carson Beck QB

This all indicates his limited vertical game.
Carson Beck has emerged as Georgia’s offensive unit’s driving force, as his impressive stats attest. He completed 21 out of 31 passes for 294 yards and showed an affinity for making big plays. His quarterback rating stands at 158.1; average yards per throw stands at 9.5, much higher than his counterpart from Ball State, reflecting an ability to complete passes and make them count for more yardage than ever
