Georgia football podcast: Anonymous coach blames UGA offense for Jake Fromm’s draft slide

Brandon Adams

Georgia football is the No. 1 topic every day on DawgNation Daily — the daily podcast for Georgia Bulldogs fans. Catch up on everything happening with UGA athletics with host Brandon Adams and the DawgNation experts as they break down the latest Georgia football recruiting news and discuss coach Kirby Smart’s quest to return the Bulldogs to the top of the SEC. On episode No. 1,182 (April 27, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about what Yahoo’s Pete Thamel wrote about former Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm, including quoting an anonymous coach critical of the Bulldogs’ offense, after Fromm fell to the fifth round in the NFL draft.

Georgia football podcast: Anonymous coach blames UGA offense for Jake Fromm’s draft slide

Beginning of the show: Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm slipped into the fifth round of the NFL draft — which was much lower than would typically be expected when a player of Fromm’s stature chooses to leave after his junior season. Many will attempt to assess what went wrong for him, and at least one writer points to UGA’s struggling offense as being deserving of a portion of the blame. Yahoo’s Pete Thamel’s column also includes a quote from an anonymous coach that suggests UGA’s unrest at coordinator contributed to the slide. I’ll discuss on today’s show what that assessment means for the Bulldogs going forward, and how UGA can avoid the same fate for other quarterbacks in the future.

10-minute mark: I discuss why Fromm still has an opportunity to produce a fruitful NFL career.

15-minute mark: DawgNation analyst — and former UGA All-American — Jon Stinchcomb joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Andrew Thomas and Isaiah Wilson being taken in the first round of the NFL draft
  • A discussion about Solomon Kindley, who was selected by the Miami Dolphins in the fourth round
  • And Jon’s thoughts on Fromm

30-minute mark: I take a look at how other SEC teams performed during the NFL draft.

End of show: I congratulate UGA basketball for adding an impressive grad transfer and share the Gator Hater Updater.
