Matthew Stafford: Jacob Eason is a "Super Talented Kid"

Stafford talks UGA football.

Former Georgia Bulldogs gunslinger Matthew Stafford took a minute to talk UGA football with the press Friday, and not surprisingly new Freshman QB Jacob Eason was a hot topic.

In the above clip, courtesy of 11Alive, Stafford says he hasn't seen a ton of Eason's work but describes him as a "super talented kid" that's maybe even bigger and faster than he was at that age.

Eason draws comparisons to Stafford, and the latter points out that both came to UGA from far away to be a part of the program in Athens. He also touches on the added scrutiny with social media since he was recruited a decade ago.

"It's a heck of a spotlight to be under," he says. "There's no such thing as privacy anymore."
