INDIANAPOLIS — Falcons coach Raheem Morris wants to copy the recent success of the Georgia football program.

“Jealously is my relationship with Kirby Smart,” Falcons coach Raheem Morris said Tuesday at the NFL Scouting Combine. “Let’s go win some championships like that guy. They’ve done nothing but formulate a great program.”

The Bulldogs are set to have 11 players at the combine, led by tight end Brock Bowers, who’s not expected to work out.

“Again, it starts with the people,” Morris said. “Just watching him win championships, it’s been fun to see. Fun to see the acquisition of great talent coming out of Georgia.”
