INDIANAPOLIS — The Georgia football presence at the NFL combine in undeniable, with 10 Bulldogs partaking in the 2019 event leading up to the draft.

Georgia players Elijah Holyfield and Lamont Gaillard took part in the podium interviews on Thursday and are expected to perform in their field drills on Friday.

AJC-DawgNation reporters D. Orlando Ledbetter and Mike Griffith broke down the Georgia football related news that came out of the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium on Thursday.

Ledbetter, who covers the Atlanta Falcons for AJC.com, was the Pro Football Writers of America president in 2013-14, while Griffith was the 2007 Football Writers Association of American President.

Holyfield has opened eyes, Ledbetter said, explaining why the Bulldogs’ tailback could end up with the Falcons.

Griffith shared that Gaillard’s SEC stock doesn’t match his NFL draft stock, but that could change with an impressive workout on Friday.

Ledbetter and Griffith also discussed why Deandre Baker has the look of a first-round pick, from what NFL types think about the Thorpe Award winner, and what he proved at the college level.
