Banners hang in downtown Cleveland announcing the NFL draft, Saturday, April 24, 2021. After going all virtual in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the three-day draft, which has grown into one of America's biggest, non-game sporting events, returns with an outdoor event and thousands of fans who will be separated by their loyalties ��� and whether they've been vaccinated. Back on the road in Cleveland, this draft will be unlike any other.(AP Photo/Tony Dejak)

Georgia football podcast: NFL draft shows path toward national championship for UGA

Beginning of the show: Georgia set a program record with nine selections in the 2021 NFL draft -- which concluded Saturday. Yet if the Bulldogs want to increase their chances of winning a national championship, the program is probably going to need to do more to match the first-round success in recent seasons of programs such as Clemson, LSU and Alabama. I’ll discuss more on that topic on today’s show.

10-minute mark: I discuss what UGA is getting in its most recent commit, four-star wide receiver De’Nylon Morrissette.

15-minute mark: Former UGA All-American Jon Stinchomb joins the show to recap the impressive haul of Bulldogs taken in the NFL draft.

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including a former Ohio State wide receiver possibly finding a home in the league.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown, and award a Golden Shoe winner as part of the Gator Hater Roll Call.

NOTE: We had to evacuate the studio this morning due to weather concerns. Therefore, there’s no Podcast Cool Down at the end of today’s show. However, I’ll look forward to taking your questions and comments again tomorrow.
