Georgia football podcast: NFL analyst ‘pounding the table’ in support of drafting Richard LeCounte

Beginning of the show: Former Georgia safety Richard LeCounte has faced tough questions ahead of the NFL draft stemming from his motorcycle accident that prematurely ended his senior season and likely cost him a chance to show his best performance at UGA’s Pro Day in March.

However, there are still plenty of analysts touting LeCounte despite of his setbacks. I’ll discuss an example of one of those on today’s show.

Five-minute mark: I share an interesting evaluation of former UGA outside linebacker Azeez Ojulari based on the prolific stats he put up for the Bulldogs in 2020.

10-minute mark: I explain why UGA’s national title hopes in 2021 might be tied to how many elite prospects the program produces for the NFL draft in 2022 -- including wide receiver George Pickens, who was recently praised by ESPN.

20-minute mark: DawgNation’s Mike Griffith joins the show to preview the NFL draft.

40-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including an odd decision by Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin to fire his offensive line coach.

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

After the show: I take questions and comments as part of the Podcast Cool Down.
