Georgia football podcast: J.R. Reed warns not to overlook certain members of UGA defense

Beginning of the show: One of the hot topics this offseason has centered around the possibility Georgia freshmen such as linebackers Nolan Smith and Nakobe Dean become breakout stars this fall. UGA safety J.R. Reed didn’t dismiss the possibility of that occurring when asked about the topic at SEC Media Days. However, I’ll play audio on today’s show of what Reed did have to say — including why he thinks some players who’ve been on the roster for a year or more could be strong candidates to stand out this season.
