Georgia football podcast: Dear Atlanta Falcons, please draft Azeez Ojulari
Beginning of the show: One of the surprising facets of the first round of the NFL draft on Thursday night was that Georgia outside linebacker Azeez Ojulari slipped out of the first round. However, there are some UGA fans -- including yours truly -- who see a potential silver lining to the disappointing news. That is, of course, if the Atlanta Falcons decide to draft the hometown product in the second round Friday night. I’ll discuss more on that topic on today’s show.
