Georgia football podcast: Kirby Smart could use NFL draft to send strong recruiting message

Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart could take advantage of an odd circumstance that could unfold with the upcoming NFL draft. Former UGA wide receiver Riley Ridley would seem to have a legitimate chance of being a high draft pick despite not being used as much with the Bulldogs as the other receivers who’ll be drafted near Ridley. I’ll explain on today’s show why this means Smart can say that his system rewards team players and produce NFL stars without requiring a lot of stats.

10-minute mark: I discuss the latest on 5-star wide receiver Rakim Jarrett — who recently announced a UGA visit.
