Georgia football podcast: A different take on UGA’s “most exciting” players

Beginning of the show: This week, ESPN selected wide receiver George Pickens as Georgia’s most exciting player. Given the success Pickens enjoyed as a freshman in 2019 it’s easy to understand why he gets the nod. However, I’ll explain on today’s show why one of the most exciting aspects of Pickens this upcoming season for UGA could be the opportunities he opens up for other Bulldogs receivers.
