To mix things up, I thought I’d do a look-ahead to Georgia State’s August camp in a different format, A-to-Z:

Cheridor, Mackendy.

Cheridor has the potential to be a difference-maker on a defensive line that badly needs someone to make plays.

He started as a hybrid rush end/outside linebacker last year before also suffering a season-ending knee injury.

He is healthy and will play defensive end with his hand on the ground, which the coaches feel better suits his skills.

He is listed at 6-5, 250 pounds, but I think he was probably closer to 270 in the spring. And that’s not a bad 270. Because of his frame, he seemed to carry the weight well as he recovers from his injury.

Cheridor has just one sack last year, but he only played in four games.

Georgia State A to Z so far

B is for backfield

A is for Arbuckle
