Georgia football podcast: CBS pays Elijah Holyfield a big compliment after not getting drafted

Beginning of the show: Former Georgia running back Elijah Holyfield elected to leave school after his junior season in the hopes of getting selected in the NFL draft. That didn’t happen. However, I’ll explain on today’s show why some still think Holyfield will have a chance to find a home in the league.

10-minute mark: I’ll address the state of UGA’s offensive line competition at the end of spring practice.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Chip Towers joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • A look at the seven former UGA players taken in the NFL draft
  • Chip’s reaction to Holyfield not being drafted
  • And a preview of the Bulldogs who could enter the 2020 draft — including quarterback Jake Fromm

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including 5-star wide receiver Rakim Jarrett committing to LSU, 2021 athlete Kamar Wilcoxson using a poem to de-commit from Florida, former Kentucky quarterback Gunnar Hoak announcing a transfer to Ohio State and Tennessee failing to produce an NFL draft pick.

35-minute mark: I discuss the Diamond Dawgs getting swept by Mississippi State and former UGA tight end Luke Ford retaining a lawyer.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
