Georgia football podcast: ESPN analyst raves about UGA’s future after pro day

Beginning of the show: Georgia had its pro day on Wednesday, and it was quite the star-studded affair. However, the takeaway from some national media members wasn’t the former UGA standouts on their way to the NFL, but the future crop of Bulldogs who could join them there in the years to come. I’ll talk more about that subject on the show.

10-minute mark: UGA’s 2017 offensive line set the standard for performance for that position group. Does the new Georgia offensive line embrace the challenge of meeting that mark? UGA coach Kirby Smart addressed that on Wednesday. I’ll play audio of what Smart said and explain how a better offensive line also means an easier transition at running back after the departure of Nick Chubb and Sony Michel.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Seth Emerson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick’s presence at UGA pro day
  • Defensive end Jonathan Ledbetter’s new leadership role
  • The new offensive coaching responsibilities for Jim Chaney and James Coley
  • And whether redshirt freshman tackle Isaiah Wilson is ready to compete for a starting job

30-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including an update on Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and the injury to his left (throwing hand) thumb; a look at the LSU defense, which reportedly dominated in its first spring scrimmage; a national writer explaining why South Carolina coach Will Muschamp has “overachieved” with the Gamecocks; and more.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown.
