Georgia taking advantage of depth at receiver

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Chris Conley says Georgia no longer has to depend on any one receiver.

Not A.J. Green.

Not Malcolm Mitchell.

Conley proved the point last week when he took advantage of his 6-foot-3 frame and 40-inch vertical leap to make a key 18-yard sideline catch that enabled Georgia to run out the clock in its 24-20 win over Florida.

With the big grab, Conley proved there's new depth at receiver for No. 18 Georgia, which plays New Mexico State on Saturday.

The last few years Georgia relied heavily on Green, who is now the NFL's top rookie receiver with Cincinnati. Quarterback Aaron Murray has turned to Conley and others after losing Mitchell, this year's top target who will miss his third straight game this week with a hamstring injury.
