NFL Draft - Episode 6

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Hamish is joined by new guest, James Curtis, and On The Ball regular, Christian, to discuss the recent NFL Draft and a little bit of NFL Free Agency.

Cheese settle. Welcome back to episode six of the on the ball podcast. Today we will be discussing the NFL draft and also a little bit of NFL free agency. But yeah, today I'm joined by a two guests. One that has been on the on the channel the the podcast quite a bit, Christian pilcher. Welcome back, mate, get boys. Glad to be back, glad to have a new contract. And we are introducing a new guest to the show, the third non family guest, Russell Coit, also known as James Curtis or Hummers. Welcome Gray, thanks having me on as pleasure. Looking forward to what should be a good party. Yeah, so we've had a bit of difficulty here with some technical issues, but we'll see how we go. So let's just go straight into it, let's not let's not piss fart around. It's not beat around the bush. Let's just start with the big dogs. Everyone loves them, everyone knows and the cub's off. The first couple rounds of the draft will start with Joe Burrow, the main dog, the main man, the number one pick from Lsu. Cincinnati bengals picked him up. He won everything there was to win in college in his final season at Lsu. He won the Heisman, he was the National Champ, he won pretty much every award a QB can win. He broke the record for the most touchdowns in a divone college season and many commentators and experts on the sport a claiming that it's the best ever college qb season. So what do you guys think of Joe Barrow? I think he's an absolute first rate player, first rate character as well. Heard extremely smart both on and off the field. Seemed to go through his progressions in our exceptional fashion, and I think it's the mold of a first round or first first draft pick. After this incinnati bangles in perfect fashion. Yeah, I absolutely agree. And the fact that he was before before last season, he was tipped to go what, six or seventh round? Yes, so, yeah, I reckon that shows that he's obviously put in a shitload of work into improving his game in the previous preseason, which to me is a great sign for his NFL career, because talent only gets you so far and work ethic is, if not more important than talent. So I reckon that's a good sign as well. Yeah, completely agree, and it was especially interesting see this year with the heisman t profy, seeing chase yarn hurts and obviously borrow or finalists and seeing them all be transfers. It definitely fits the the contention that hard work definitely beats talent. Yeah, he as you just mentioned, he started out at a higher state, which is a little known fact because it was pretty mythical there, and then found his way to Lsu and became the stary is today. How do you guys reckon he's going to fare in the NFL? Um I'm not necessarily I think. I think he would definitely be a staff for sure, and I think he will have a pretty, pretty long career. I'm not necessarily sure I will be, as like say, affluent is, maybe like rodgers or someone along those lines, but I think you'll certainly have a successful career. I don't think he's the most talented q being this draft, that's for sure, but I certainly think you'll have a successful career at the Cincinnati bengals and wherever some the NFL takes him. Yeah, I think he's definitely got the potential to have a great career and he does have a lot of weapons at the Bengals as well. A lot of pace to work with, so be interesting to see. Yeah, I don't know why I'm not. I don't think he's going to be awful, but I just get the vibe that he's maybe gonna be a little bit underwhelming. If I'm honest, I think he's coming in with two high expectations, like, at the end of the day, he is going to the bangles. But I don't think he can be much worse than Andy Dalton and the other bengals qb's who played last year. They were the combined out of any team, they had the lowest qb rating and they were third last in completion percentage. So I can't really see him doing much worse than that. That's pretty much the bottom of the barrel. He's got some great attacking weapons, though, which it's probably surprising to some considering how bad the bangles have been of late. But he's got Aj Green, who's been franchise tagged, he's got John Ross, who should be back from injury, Tyler Boyd who kind of broke...

...out a little bit last year and t higgins, who was the second round draft pick they got, and then they've also got Joe Mixon, who's one of the better running backs in the league. So and Dalton's been released in the last week, so there's not going to be too much pressure on him in terms of competing for his spot, so you can easily make it his. The only thing I've got about Joe Barrow, then, I'm a bitch stressed out about, is the fact that Joe Brady, who is the offensive coordinator Lsu you, got picked up by ELF NFL team. I can't quite remember who it was, but that may be suggest to me that LS use attacking dominance. Maybe wasn't just down to Joe Joe Burrow and it was more like a scheme kind of thing. So that's maybe the only red flag I'd have against him, but yeah, I'm sure you'll do well. Yeah, that's that's an interesting point. Actually, it could be, but only time will tell. Yeah, exact actually can't really very interesting point, but it seems to be a bit of a trend in the college football at the moment anyway, like you see a lot of Qub's go to Oklahoma and up being quite successful, save with a higher state. So yeah, just be interesting to see whether the the translation of his offensive coordinator going to the NFL is is a determinant for a success. Yeah, and I don't see like. I can't. I can't really believe that it was simply purely down to the attacking scheme. I do think you have to be at a high level to like win the awards and break the records that he did. Now on to I've heard, curtis, that you believe that this man is better than Joe Borrow, the second take in Qbat, pick five from Alabama. He got picked up by the Miami Dolphins to a tag of the lower yeah, excellent player. Think he's definitely the most talented in the this class of our QB's. He's throwings just purely exceptional. He's able to really control the rebs in the bowl, which is something that really has been something that dictates whether you're an excellent qb or not. So we see that with Rogers quite a bit, where he's able to really spin it with rebs when he needs to and then just let it fly out with a few less rebs where necessary. I think he's also he's quite agile, despite the fact he's being injured quite a bit recently and of you see, that's been one of the Knox and him as of as of the last guest few months, especially with the hip injury. So yeah, I'll just be interesting to see whether he they would actually fulfill his talent just because obviously he's been injured so much. So I would expect, mind me, to definitely read shirt him this season to ensure that he can get his body in perfect condition. But yeah, obviously I think he's definitely the most talented qb's this draft, probably the most talented QB off by my time watching NFL to come out of the college system. So yeah, I hope he has a very successful career. I've got a I've got a question for you boys about tour. Yeah, do you think that if he didn't get injured, he'd be on the Bengals List right now? Yes, yeah, here, yeah, that's up said, hundred percent. Not even a question. He's got, he's he's by far the most talented qb I think in the in the draft. Borrow definitely was the more successful in terms of accolades, in terms of the achievements that he he acquired this season, but in terms of he just went headtohead. You had the same teams, both players were given the the same kind of opposition. I think too would come out the better QB and to the steel for the dolphins. And Yeah, I reckon I was great pick up and there is a bit of risk to it, as you were saying, with the injury element, but him and his team have come out and said that he's feeling a hundred two percent and that he doesn't really feel any lingering effects from his dislocated hip in November. And Yeah, to a like I know it's form is important and like they're at a developing stage in their career in college. So the last year is probably the most important year. But to are over, his college career was a lot more consistent. Like going into the final season. No one really had Joe Barrow going close to the first round, where there were plenty of people predicting to it to go number one or definitely in the top five. So I think I have a little bit more faith and to our becoming a star. So he won a championship game. He actually has quite an interesting story because coming ail and hurts, he was a backup to jail and hurts, who is another drug quarterback in this draft class, and so he was kind of stuck behind him for a bit of Alabama and then in the championship game they actually bench jail and hurts for two hour and tour came...

...on and through three touchdowns and got the MVP of the match. So that kind of turned the tired for tour. Yeah, well, that's actually a pretty good joke because Alabama is called the crimson tide. So Hay to just realize that. I was a pretty all time cool yeah, well, you're gonna say. Okay, well, he's Um, he kind of came on to the map with I don't know if you always know about it's called the elite eleven. It's it and if it's a qb program that is typically for the best eleven or so high school qub's, and him, in the current cleansing qb, Trevor Lawrence, were the two pretty much find out for the top pick of the elite eleven, and it's where he really kind of came onto the map. He ended up beating out Trevor Lawrence to win the MVP of that particular program and since then he's just been in a standing player and show showing it really with his arm. He's arms just exception of the way he's able to just hit targets from anywhere on the pitch. I'm very keen to see what to is going to bring to the NFL. Yes, do you reckon? He will start straight away over Fitzee, I reckon. Are Can I read show him the whole year? Old Hope. So I don't really wanted to gain. I don't know about the whole year, I feel like. But depends how Miami's doing. I feel like if there often idea, actually, because he's a bit of a shit, they might just be like, oh, it's not worth it. But then they might also see it as an opportunity to give him a couple like maybe a couple quarters at the back end of games or something sort of. I really know of a Dan Jones situation from last year ten. Yeah, but he'd probably won't tack over as fast as Dan Jones did. So but yeah, it's fits. He isn't Boris like Manny. Well, they all Rosen as well. So they also have a top tenk you year, from few years ago. So yeah, pretty will be interesting to see what they do. Yeah, they cute. The QB rooms pretty pretty stacked with with like young talent in terms of Rosen and tour and then you've got a big experience with fit, to use a bit of a Journeyman, definitely. It just absolutely a names or something. I don't I don't really see rose and getting too many minutes, to be honest, as he'll be third string behind these two, unless maybe fits he gets hurt like round one. But yeah, unless he comes on for a few trick plays. Oh, like a Marioda indeed, bit of a Marioda. All right. So on to the next qb taken. It was the next pick. He went to the LA chargers. This was another pretty obvious one, I'd say. I think the first three qub picks, most people had predicted them to go that way. He came out of Oregon and he is Justin Herbert. I don't know if it's Herbert or like you say it with like a little bit of a French action accent, like her bear, her bet, like you know, you know right. Yeah, he's head there. Yeah, no, I'll go herbert because, after all, he's American, so similar to to our he was kind of touted the whole way through his college career, like the year before his last season. He I looked at five mock drafts and to had him going number one and one had him going number two. So like unlike borrow and more like to he would kind of being a star the whole time. He's six foot six, which is pretty outrageous. Big that they love. The NFL loves anything that's above six foot for for a qub. They are frothy. Yeah, and I think he's quite agile for that height, which is pretty incredible. Like you think six foot six, you'd have to be a bit dopey. And as you love, Curtis, you love pointing this out in your players. But he's known to be one of the smartest players of this draft class. Yeah, well, I think it is just it's just been shown that throughout, throughout the NFL, those who have been quite smart off the field of ended up being extremely success foot on the field. I mean you just look at Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, for example, especially in terms of Q be's. If you've got off field talent, then you typically have on field talent and you're able to go through progressions extremely UN efficiently and eventually shit up targets. And another thing, another thing that her bear has going for him is that he was a fair qub taken, which means a lot of the limelight will be on tour and borrow. So it's true he will have a lot less pressure on him to perform and he's gone into an extremely strong team. I mean the charges are stacked. I don't like, don't care what anyone said. They might have had a bad season last year, but they are stacked. They've got Allen, they're stacked everywhere that on on the least. Like they got ECKLA in the backs. You know, it's just it's just a stacked roster. Yeah, I can our CAN ECKLO will help...

...him out a lot. Yeah, it's just a start. I don't think he's actually going to start around one. To be honest, I agree. I think ty I think will be tyrod Taylor's position to start off, especially given the pandemic and stuff, because I don't think they'll have too much time, if at all, to like have trials and extensive preseason where Herbert can like get used to the system, where tyrod Taylor was there last year so he would have seen Philip rivers doing all like the players that the coaches love. So I would say they'll start with tyrod Taylor and he's decent player he probably deserves another chance out it because he hasn't been a starter since like buffalo or something in two thousand and seventeen. Yeah, right, the very start of the browns. Where now, before they got my field in? Yeah, so I think it will be tyrodd's position to lose and then I predict maybe like round six or seven that the big fellow will come in, maybe if you late game reps early on bit, like Dan Jones did with Eli, and then well, it'll probably more just depend on tyrods performance really. Yeah, I agree tyrone. He's not a bad qub at all, so he could really be anything. Yeah, but it's really gonna to if he wants to stay art. He's going to really have to put in the effort and show the coaches that he deserves the start. But yeah, it tight. Tyra Taylor's a bit of a journeyman as well, but I think he's going to be good in almost like mentoring Herbert, and hopefully I'm forming herb into our inner solid qb that he is expected to be. Got Anything to say on that? PILCH? Not at all. Completely agree. So the next two QUBI's taken, we're quite controversial picks. So the fourth QB taken was a pick twenty six to the Green Bay packers. It was Jordan love from Utah State. I know you've got a pretty strong feeling about this one, Kurt. You want to ripple, rip away, mate, but all our cank loves got plenty of talent on him. He's he's definitely a project, though, so he's yeah, yeah, I remember thinking had nineteen touchdown this season, but it was followed by seventeen deceptions, something rather like that. So he's Um. He's definitely got talent, but he's not necessarily a completely molded player as of yet. So it's got to be a project for Green Bay. But I'm not really a fan of the peak, to be honest. I think green bay have ourn Rogers. It is you've got the go of all QB's and you've just come coming out of a conference for Conference Championship. You've lost it, but you've seen that your roster has talent, you have potential to go the super bowl potentially. Take it out and you've gone to drop of the QB instead of some offensive weapons that were available, especially their strong, strong wide receiver draft. I think it's a pretty, pretty silly pick, but I can understand where they're coming from, the investing in their future, trying to do something similar, I guess, with what they did with five and Rogers. But yeah, I really think that they could have picked someone out up later, even love later. I feel like love might have dropped a bit more and instead picked up maybe another wide receiver to compliment Adams. But yeah, they I think. I think the packers know that they've got the best wide receiver of all time in the Monte Adams, but also think we I think the love pick part of it, maybe as a bit of motivation for Rogers to really really keep going, because he knows now he's got he's got some competition in the near future. So I reckon it'll help him work harder on his game as well and also he'll be a great mentor for love, obviously. Yeah, I do see that reason behind the pick. Like I'll be honest, I think if they ever beenched rodgers for love, it would probably be the biggest out rage of beat cry. But knowing I do think are you down the track? They like this roaches has so much left in him. Yeah, I do. I do think, though, Rogers was maybe, although he they got to the conference final. I do think he was maybe a bit down on past years last year. Can't there was, I think, as we always joke about pilch. I think it was because, like, he had a pretty mythical attack, apart from Jones and Adams, obviously. We used to joke around that he would throw it to like his third wide receiver and he wouldn't know who they were. And so love was similar to borrow. The next the two quarterbacks left love and hurts. They were similar to borrow in the fact that they weren't really touted as high picks. Well, I guess twenty six and fifty three is in that high really, but they before their final college season.

I think their names like Jacob Easen and Jake from they were the tow along with tour and Herbert, who were meant to be the big for Qub's, but those last two kind of fell away this year. So love very interesting pick. I know Brett Farve, the legend of the Green Bay packers. He came out and roasted it, saying in a League like the NFL you've got a if you're in a window to win the Super Bowl, you've got to throw all your eggs in that basket. You can't be half in a super bowl window and then also half planning for the future. Yeah, which I completely agree with. It's not a sport like AFL and rl or even like the Premier League, where there's less teams, so you can almost plan for the future. Why? You still at the top, but in the team with in a league with thirty two teams, you've got to have a stacked roster in every position in their prime pretty much to win a super bowl. So I think to be planning wasting your first round pick on a backup qb who's not going to play in the next two years, I think it's pretty stupid. And even Aaron Rodgers, who's usually a pretty quiet guy, came out and said that he was very shocked by and is unsure the reasoning behind it. So, yeah, I'm really just shocked by that pick, to be honest, as our most people. Touchy subject for Brett Father, though. Yeah, yeah, far people were saying like, obviously it's going to be different because rodgers isn't a ship blow and like rodgers has already come out and said that he's looking forward to like mentoring Jordan love and stuff, so it'll definitely be a different environment there. Yeah, well, I think rodgers is probably one of the best mentors the NFL has ever seen. So, based on what logic may I think he's ever had to mentor Qb ever took you spool out? Yeah. Well, as we know, he's one of the most intelligent players in yeah, yeah, I'll give you that. I'm sure he would be a great mentor, but I just drs on his track record of being the greatest mental here. Oh, no, I've heard I've heard things. That's he's he's a bit of a shit blow. I don't know why. Maybe pere direct about anyone in needs team. All right, moving on to the final q be taken in the first two rounds. It is the AFO mentioned jalen hurts. He is was a transfer from Alabama to Oklahoma. As you got pushed out by tour and he so. He won the championship in two thousand and eighteen with Alabama, but did he really win it? As to our won the final MVP and steered the boys home. He then spent the next season as back up to tour and he just copped it. And then for these final you moved to Oklahoma, replacing Kyla. They've a really successful program in Oklahoma. The coach, Lincoln Riley, is said to be one of the best coaches in the United States, but he's just not really interested in the NFL. So they're produced Baker, Kyla and now jalen hurts. Three is in a row. He came second in the Hiresman to borrow, which is pretty outstanding, and he led Oklahoma to the semis but got absolutely capitulated by Lsu. He got taken by the Philadelphia Eagles. So what do you think on that, boys or can? Hurts is an absolute steel. Yeah, I agree. Yeah, I know, I don't think you can. I'm not a fan of he's throwing. You definitely run. He's definitely probably one of the Best Jill quarterbacks this draft cluboard. He's he's the probably the premier dull quarterback. Maybe borrow is kind of fits into that board as well. I don't know. He if he can learn to throw like a bit more accurately, with bit more revs, been more pace, he definitely has the chance to be steady quarterback in the NFL, I think. And he's not a bad back out to wend see though, especially whence his pretty I mean like last year, for example, very injury. Yeah, so it's not it's not a bad picking that by any means, and he probably went where you should have gone as well in terms of in terms of the whole scheme of the draft. But yeah, he definitely needs some work on the throwing, that's for sure. I mean he did, he was a heisman final so I've probably been very harsh here, but yeah, he need he needs to work on the throwing, that's for sure. Why do you think he's a steel pilt? Well, as we've seen the the running quarterbacks are really starting to have an impact in the NFL in the current day NFL, as I've seen with Lamar my homes and then Kyl Amari, outstanding first year. So I reckon. I reckon.

That is a very positive sign. And just the fact that he's gone pick what fifty three, hundred and fifty three, I'm just reckon. That's a great pickup. Second in the Heisman as well. Yeah, that's pretty crazy. Second, second in the highsman as a QB, you would definitely be predicting like top twenty pick at least. Yeah. So, yeah, that it's fair to say that could be a bit of a steel. So people were outraged that the eagles picked up a qb given the fact that they've got Wentz, but I actually, as Curtius you were saying, I rate the pick. Yeah, I think it's a good compliment to Wentz, for sure. Yeah, it's smart because whence, as you were saying, is very injury prone the last two, maybe even three years here, all the backups to Wentz have got game time. So I think even if it ends up being that hurts, is just the backup for two years and plays maybe three or four games this season and gets traded, I think that's not even the worst case scenario because I'm sure they will get great value for him in that trade. So I don't really see why people were outraged by this pick. The only thing maybe, is I feel like you kind of want your back up to be similar to you, your starting Qb, because then they can kind of sub in the sub out, like there's no change. As you saw, not that he played much, but like multiple went out and got Robert Griffin referred to be the backup to lamb, so they could interchange. So that's maybe one thing, because it would be a bit of a shot going from wentz's playstyle to hurts his play style. But yeah, I write pick. Personally, yeah, I think that the running aspect of a quarterback is more natural. You're sort of born with it, bear being more athletic, whereas the throwing, I think that's you can work on that and improve that it more easily over time, you know, and the fact that you just slipped down so low, I don't pick. It's definitely still more potential with his throwing. Like you could see that he's probably definitely improved from his time at Alabama, Alabama to Oklahoma. So so you can see the improvement and you can see that there's more growth to come in terms of your throwing. It's just it's a question, and I think this probably why he probably slipped into the second round. It's a question is to how much more potential he actually has in terms of the throwing he's obviously there's no doubt he's a very capable runner. He can rip teams open in terms of running, but just just knowing how much of a thrower he can actually be in that how much a jewel, true jewel court of true jewel threat quarterback can be that's really going to dictate his career, I think. Yeah, it's impossible to say Alabama in with an Australian because Australian accent you would say Alabama. Yeah, it just not right. You got to say alabim. You actually have to descend it and go Alabama. Yeah, all right. So That's enough for the QB's. We're discussed the big dogs. They're now to wide receivers. We're mainly going to be discussing the skill position players, but we will talk about a few players on the other side of the ball. Bit laid up, but wide receivers. The first wide receiver to go with Henry Rugs, the third, once again out of Alabama, at pick number twelve for the newly moved relocated last Vegas Raiders. He won a national championship in two thousand and eighteen, that same one that tour and hurts shared. He pretty much went in the same position that he was predicted to before the draft. He wasn't like a bolt or a steel so that's pretty self explainatory. Maybe some people were surprised, as I think a lot of people had him below judy and lamb as in terms of skill yeah, but he was the first taken. He runs a forty yard and four point two seven seconds, yeah, which is beach that is rapid. It was the fastest in this draft by I think it was like country will appreciate. Yeah, the next was like four point three, two or three, which is quite a big distance in such a short Madridge, but he's that. He had the fourth fastest time ever since they moved to electronic recording. So that's pretty insane. If he didn't run that time, would you say there's no way he would have been drafted ahead of Oh, yes, absoltainly right away. No, it's only reason, I think. Yeah, I don't even think he's going to be sound real rough. I think he was a joke of a pick, to be honest. Light there are definitely better wide receivers out there in terms of that actual talent of a wide receiver. But yeah, athletics, in terms of his ability to run, run like an absolute bolt and, you know, distance himself from me, from his opponents, he's definitely got that.

He's not the best wide receiver out there, I don't think, but it's kind of follows the trend of loss of Vegas and before that the Oakland Raiders. They they look with their picks. They kind of like to be a bit out there that. It's yeah, that's actually true. That is the jets. The jets love that as well. They love to this, you know, not necessarily follow the convention of draft boards and what everyone else to seeing it. No, kind of back back themselves in the back their thoughts in yeah, all rightly, by no means he's a bad, bad wire receiver at all. Yeah, he was actually the third receiver in terms of yardage in his final year out Alabama alone. So pretty outrageous that he was taken first. Yeah, whole draft class. That's that's pretty bizarre. What do you think of the raiders picking up or wide receiver with their pick? Do you write that or that? Oh, I'm pretty I'm not necessarily have having an opinion on it. It I'm not really based in terms of either way or that. I think he compliments car pretty well. They probably it means that they all guess he's going. He's going to, I guess, an offense that has a few Alabama players. So they've got Jacobs as a running back. So I mean he's probably going to fit into this system pretty well, there and it probably compliments Kakwin Nicey, but I mean, yeah, there's no I think they needed some x factor. So I think a four point two seven Fort Yard will give that to you for sure, for sure. So they also signed Nelson to agalaw in Fred See. So now they've got a receiving corp of Agalore Hunter, Renfro Tyrell Williams, Darren Waller and newly signed Jason Witten. And they also drafted to other wide receivers. So there's no absolute star and there, but they are building like a solid bunch of players to odd say Darren walls a star, but they're building a solid bunch of players to for Derek Carr and maybe Marcus Mario to to throw too, for sure. And they weren't too far off the playoffs either last year, right surprisingly. Yeah, I mean a bit of it factor with a four point two seven, I mean you never know, you couldn't. Could could propel them towards the Om the playoffs this year. Maybe, you know, have a little appearance in there, which would be, I guess, nice for the newly last ve Yas Raiders. Yeah, so next pick in the wide receiver group was Jerry Duty, who was probably the unanimous Lee believed best receiver, I'd say, going into his final year college. People were saying it. All five drafts I saw had him in the top seven picks. So him going at pick fifteen, also from Alabama, but the Denver Broncos, would be considered a steal by many. He won receiver of the year in his second last season and I was looking at the history of that record, that award, and it's like pretty bloody good names in there. Yeah, maybe the last five years the players haven't got to their peak yet, but like, fucking what's that? Blocks that Larry Fitz Larae's yeah, Calvin Johnson, golden tap. There's a few others I can't remember. Lateral genuine stars of won it. Sorry. Did Julio Jones Copy Award? I don't know, probably because I think it was a beast in cold water. I think he was Alabama productors well, but yeah, Jerry Judy definitely the best of the Alabama wide receivers in my opinion. Absolute beast of fire, very good route runner, exceptional in terms of the route running. So who picked him up? DENVER. So he's going to be a bit of a one to punch with Sutton. They yeah, so. I mean ever became an exceptional route runner and I think he's going to definitely be any outstanding wide receiver. And just on the wide receives generally, a lot of them slipped, I think, in terms of where they were actually predicted to get. I agree. That's just I think. I think that's just the NFL stating that they don't think the wide receiver position is of the optimal import it. Say, think the interior of the offensive line comes up. More is more. It's more importance then, say a white receiver is in protecting and complementing the QB. Yeah, couldn't agree more there. I think people just think there's like so many wide receivers out there who do the job that it's not worth, I'm sure, using a top ten pick on pilch do. How do you know? What do you do right? The broncos taking him. I'm a fan of the broncos picking up judge dudy because I reckon weird name I reckon. There are their wide receiver stocks now actually quite solid and I think that's exactly what they needed, because that is that's where they...

...lacks last year. So very interesting to see and I reckon he's a better wide receiver than then rugs, anyway, in my opinion. Yeah, agree. And the other the other week I made a list. I ranked all the wide receivers in my opinion in the AFC and I picked the top four from each team and Denver had like the bottom two out of the whole AFC. Their third and fourth were absolute myths. So things that they probably good that they reinforced that, especially with drew locket quarterback for a young QB definitely needs some help at wide receiver and no offense the tight end. He looked decent last year. So they're building a decent attack, also with Philip Lindsay and newly signed Melvine Gordon. So they might be able to score some points, which is being tough for them, especially considering their coach is the famous defensive coach Vic Fangio. So or can they are? Can they have in a world class defense and an underrated defense as well, because they are at tackles giving them absolutely nothing? Last year the defense had to carry him. Yes, so I drew lock can pull that all together. Who knows, they could push for a wild card spot, maybe behind the chiefs so all right. Next pick, CD LAMB from Oklahoma, picked umber Seventeen Dallas cowboys. What do you think of that? Pick, Kut absolute peakmate, absolute selection, and you'll find you're a big lamb fan boy on your curtis. You love him? Oh for sure. I think I actually thought he was the best. What receive it in the draft? Probably be may are now, probably is. He's probably better than my second favorite in Pittman. Yeah, I think the dollas carry either. Dallas cowboys have got an absolute steel here, and I can see why they decided to pick him up in favor of other positions, especially in terms of their defensive side of the ball, which they're quite weak out, unfortunately. But yeah, they've got offensive talent. US for sure add their offensive you offensive department's going to be frothing him and there they're just looking real strong the offense, each other the ball this year, like it's pretty scary to think of. Yeah, I'm just pretty gassed with it for the Dallas Dallas to MEE, because they've obviously got rid of their head coach, because you up to Baker. And Yeah, now now they've picked up an absolute offensive talent. So that, yeah, that I will be with the gonna see that could be absolutely licking his lips at home. and CD LAMB's got one of the best names I've ever seen as well, but not quite the best name of the wide receiver crop in this draft. Way. Have you heard the story of how you got he became known as CD? I have not. He's apparently names bit of all wacky. Want Yeah, like the lock was telling me, is like his names like sedarian or something and in like yeah, high school, or might have even been earlier than that. He's like football. Coach was like so confused of what he was saying. He liked had no idea. So then lamb just said like just call me see or something, and but the coach heard that was it was something d so he just went or, I'll just call you CD. I love it. I love it, and that somehow stuck. So I think personally, great pick in terms of him, but I think just Dallas idea rested as Asian. Really you've got a Mary Cooper, Michael Ballot, Amari Cooper, Michael Gallant with Zeke Elliott. I think that's just greedy picking up a top tier wide receiver. I think they really should have gone for a quarterback to try and, yeah, replace Iron Jones that left for Miami. Better have it more or even like a linebacker or something to replace the I don't know if he's retired or just aging, but Sean Lee, who was their main linebacker a few years ago, he's not really got it anymore. So I drs that decision. But he had a great punch in his second last year in college with Marquis Brown, who went to the Ravens, and so maybe that suggests he's he'll be able to play second in the third fiddle to Cooper and Gallop. But yeah, as I said, pretty weird choice for the cowboys, I think. But I heard on a podcast I was listening to the other day that Mike McCarthy got unstuck at Green Bay because he basically likes got let all the wide receivers go because he just backed Davante Adams to do it all himself, and apparently that was like the big part of his down for because at the start of his tenure he had like the best wide receiving core. So people are saying it's positive signs...

...that he's maybe learnt from his mistakes and is not just piling it up on one superstar. Yeah, but the thing is to Wante Adams can do it all by himself. So well, got self and do too well. Do you right? Next, do you think it follows the trend? This pick especially follows a trend of the NFL where they're really going offensive heavy, especially considering Kansas City now. So, especially considering Kansas City's in the same conference, you think that this was a smart choice? Maybe because it's stacked up their offense to means I could almost go offense to offensive Kansas and other offensively stand games now as well. Yeah, and especially in their division alone. If you just look at Philly, they were very evenly matched last year, as it basically came down to the last match of the season who made the playoffs from that division. But I think they will back their defenses are both pretty average, so that's a neutral. So if they just think I attack better than their's, which now I definitely say it is, probably always was. So maybe they're just looking at that One v one matchup, and Philly struggled for quarterbacks in the last two or three years, so maybe they've ye notice that. If they have three pacy outstanding wide receivers that Philly, despite signing Diris Sleigh, would have no hope. So yeah, I can't of see the thinking, but it's just pretty crazy, to be honest. But it could work. As it I said, Kansas are very okay. All right, the next three things. One, you're on them too long. We'll just go through where they went and if we think it's a good choice, jail and Raga from Texas Christian University went pick twenty one to Philly Eagles. Thoughts on that one? Myth good pick up. Dad, did you well, do you rightfully? Going a wide receiver staff? That's exactly right. I right. Yeah, going a ride wide receiver, I think that's exactly like. Yeah, yes, especially that you saw last year when our Sean Jeffrey got injured how quickly their wide receiving call can't you can't have your whole receiving call being carried by a tight end. Yeah, at one point they had like two starting wide receivers who would actually not been on the original list and they'd been added because of injuries. So pretty, pretty nuts. So I think that was a good call and also, especially with Nelson agalare departing to the raiders I think they really needed to bolster that up. Justin Jefferson went the next pick. Great Alan he is. He was burrows and second target, but the best lsu receiver of this draft class. He obviously won the national champ as he went to Lsu. So he got picked up by MINNESOTA. So he's trading the purple and yellow of Lsu to the purple and yellow of Minnesota. So do you rate that choice? Yeah, I reckon is a good choice for that's for sure, Minnistera, I have they they're pretty sack, minister. I mean they got feeling, but I feel like a bit more telling. The Wide Receiver Corps was certainly have about kirk cousins. So I think it might just propelled the bit fertain playoffs is yea, and yeah, I think it's competed. Yeah, built. Yeah, ready, rate and sorry, I was I'm uppy. Yeah, I agree. Yeah, so they let step on Dicks go to the Buffalo Bill. So I do think they needed to grab another top wide receiver to help out feeling. Jefferson. In College he was partnered with Jamar Chase, who's available for the draft next year, who is like base. was almost the best wide receiver of college this season despite not being allegible for the draft. So pretty interesting there, but probably shows that he will be able to work with feeling well as he's used to being the number two. And the final will pick of the final wide receiver who went in the first round, Brandon I yuk of from Arizona State. Pick Twenty five went to your beloved Sam friend, Fort Is Curtis. What do you think of the nine is taking a wide receiver. Great, great choice. I think be ascenders is obviously on to New Orleans Aye, so I think they've got to replace him. He was, I believe he's actually with the number one wide receiver on San Friends Actual Board. So I feel like the fact that they got him where they did was absolute bonus for them. And Yeah, I think he's just a great peak. Fits the bold of Sam friend perfectly and yeah, hopefully it...

...means that they can maybe actually win the super bowl this year and dreamy hit it. It matches your theory, which you can touch on our curve, because you can. We have been brought to your man, Pittman. So do you want to discuss your theory about wide receivers? There we go. Yeah, especially it's especially applicable to wide receivers. I have a theory that a lot of wide receivers overlooked that are more talented than otherwise receivers that go to big school such as Alsu Alabama. I'm a higher state, Oklahoma. We see a lot of the smallest school wide receivers been overlooked and dropping down the boards a lot more, and it's pretty interesting in my in my opinion, because a lot of the small school wide receivers actually turn out to be beasts. So we see, even though Hopkins went to Clemson, he went to Clemson when they're not not necessarily their strongest position. We see AB AB went to a I don't even know where it went, but I think it might have been old miss so yeah, I think that you see a lot of why receivers from small schools fold down. You say that especially with my boy pittman. Next he went the USC. I think he's probably the second best why I received with this class. To be honest. He was an absolute beast. Four ran a for four five two, which is pretty quick for a six four men, and I believe he left a bit out there as well. And in the usually test I think he few finished like fourth or something out of all the wire receivers, which is unreal for a six four men and apparently unreal blow good. I've heard that is an unreal blow good character may as a youtube channel, so you got to save you a good bloke for me for yourself. Yeah, and the cold. The colts love him, apparently, especially the their their head coach. They they think he's inn at standing play and it was captain the US as well, so it's a bit leadership school there as well. So I think perfect pick, pick thirty four for the cults. Yeah, that the reason I brought up that theory because it all can also be applied to a as Arizona state didn't really have a great season and I don't have no idea who their quarterback is. So I think he did a lot of it by himself and he actually turned down some of the biggest schools because they saw him as more of a punt returner who maybe took a few snaps of wide receiver that he wanted to be a starter the wide out position. So it's a wonder. Yeah, what's interest pittman was the exact same. The PIMM actually started off in the special teams and start off is a kick returner. So it's interesting. Now a lot of wide receivers are actually go to small schools. Are like actually evaluate his talents by the big schools, but they don't necessarily put the bit of position that those particular players want to or desire. So yeah, it would be interesting to see whether I can pittman actually turn out to be what I expect them to be. HMM. Yeah, well, we'll have to keep an eye on that one if the season goes ahead. So now we'll just swiftly move onto the running backs. Not Too much to mention he as it wasn't the greatest running back draft class. Nice Pun that. What did I say? Swiftly move on to the running backs. Wait, do you mean it's because for those play and I left, or because it's because the running back is called swift? Because it's called swift? Okay, yeah, right, so the first will start with him, right, deandre swift, with second running back to be taken out of Georgia. He got taken by Pilch, your Detroit lines. What do you think on that? They put the lines taking a running back with their second pick. Well, I don't know, mate, because I think carry on has a lot of talent. But put maybe because you got that because he got injured. That might be in a reason why they want a bit of back up. But yeah, swift obviously has a lot of talent. So I mean, we'll see where it goes. And I love running backs as well. Yeah, could quick, quick, I don't much. I don't mythicol running back, cool team, drs on, a mythical running back. But Fair enough, he was like the number one towered running back, but was surprising you taken as the second running back. Yeah, I think he's not going to start with the most stuffs that detry. I do think carry on will take his mantle back as number one, but maybe over time that might change because although you love carry on Pilch, I do think you overrate him a bit. I think he's nothing more than just like a solid running back. Yeah, well, I think everyon had a carry on how to poor season, which was hampered...

...by injuries. But yeah, by the way, he said maybe to poor season. Maybe it's a tactic from Matt Patricia and the Detroit Lines to take a bit of the load off Stafford and maybe run a bit more to lower the amount stafford could get injured, but that's just a little stuffing. Was Bowling last year as well. Yeah, exactly, so that they could be a right this year and they've actually said, I know the board came out and said, if they don't make playoffs this year, Matt Patricia is gone. So pretty big calls, especially in the division they're in, at right or out. So the the number one, the number one right running back. I keep seeing our beat and I think it's right back. But the number one running back taken was Clyde Edwards La from Lsu, pick thirty two. This was to Kansas. This was a pretty shocking pick, not in terms of bad but it shocked a lot of people. He was predicted in a few moth draft that I saw to go close to a hundred and he's ended up being the last pick in the first round by the Super Bowl Champs. So pretty interesting pick. I do think he may just be lucky that the fact that he went to Lsu and was in the Joe Brady offense, so I think that might be the reason why they took him so high. What do you guys reckon about Kansas taking and running back as well? Well? I don't know much about him, but I'd say he probably brings something unique that cans just made me lacking and that it's probably why I went so high. Yeah, I think it's a great pig boy is pure because can there's need running back like they have fair their story room in my homes have they had Williams last year, but he's not an APP out, like outstandy jaw dropping running back. Yeah, I mean cliver Claire. He's pretty small. He's five seven, I think. I think you've made bits as five seven seven. So yeah, he's he didn't. He's not a bad running back at all and he can catch. He he often ran. They ran a play that they would run around the offensive line. They kind of he kind of come back and he kind of get open catch pretty often and then he would kind of beat a couple men and it led to quite a few tds for him. So he's not he's not bad with his hands. He's a pretty like sturdy, bulky, go hard in your face running back, which which I think is suit suits cares. CANS is pretty nicely. So yeah, I don't think it's a bad pick at all. It's only what Kansas needed. So they're fitting a requirement that they probably needed to get in this draft. So I've just saying something pretty interesting. And apparently mahomes himself said that he was the first player that he would have liked to them of drafted, and he said it's because the bigger the games were, or like the more the more high pressure of the situation, the better he performed. So did ball out in a lot of games. So maybe he'll be a god and read reading mark him a lot as well, speaking of that. So so he's getting, he's getting the ticks of approval from all the big the big guys in the Kansas City City coaching and play a room. So right, if he's doing red loved him almost much because he liked his diet coakes. He's cheeseburgers, cheese burgs pillage bay. That's what he had after the Super Bowl, remember, yes, said after every win. All right. So yeah, it's a they're run it, they're backfield. They it's probably going to be similar to last year again, where they share it around. Leshawn McCoy is no longer with them, so Edwards Hiller will probably take his snaps but share them with Damien and Daryl Williams. But yeah, rushing. They were pretty bad last year in terms of the league, but that's probably due to the fact that Mahomes does everything. So they don't really need to rush, do they correct? Moving on to the third taken, our be Jonathan Taylor from Wisconsin. He was pick forty one to the Indianapolis Colts. He won the running back of the year in college boat two years in a row. In those two years he was a unanimous all American. He was top ten in the heisman three years in a row and he finished sixth all time in career yards in college divone footy. So probably the most stucked resume of the running backs in this draft class. So what do you think about him being taken by the colts? He's a speak. Yeah, he's an absolute beast. Run a three hundred and nine and forty years well at...

...seventeen bench presses and run a fort for for the twenty yards. Also. He's no down an absolute beast. He can catch and run, he's extremely quick once he gets out and open and I think just the cults generally had a pretty good draft of me. They got a wide receiver that they wanted in terms of pretty stocky big wide receiver. Now they've got themselves are quick, agile running back that clearly, by all accounts, he is probably the best, will arguably the best in this this draft, maybe with swift. So yeah, who do you think had the best draft? Cut? It's a good question. I think the Ravens had a pretty good draft, to be honest. I think colts had a pretty good draft. I think Miami, like even though a lot of the grading isn't necessarily in favor of Mimi if he Miami did pretty well in terms of building what is going to be the core of a pretty young, young, interesting team over the next few years, especially now they've got a lot of draft picks coming up as well. But yeah, I think Dallas as well. Dallas really formed themselves an offensive, like a scary offensive prospect. Even though you guys didn't necessarily back some of the peas purely because they're they've left a lot to be desired in terms of the defensive side of the ball. But yeah, I think if we're going to pick one, it's probably going to be either Dallas or the multiple ravens. But it's surprising, is it is that the Baltimore Ravens had a good draft, considering that they didn't the obviously they didn't have very high high picks. They did pick up Patrick Queen and JK Dobbins, which is pretty elite, specially Dobbins. Dobbins is unreal, unreal running back, which you probably going to mention soon from a highest say, and I think he's going to be something big in the future. So I think the Ravens probably a come out best at this, considering the context of where they were allowed to pick because of how well they perform last year. Yeah, it doesn't surprise me really. The Ravens of probably showing time and time again that they're probably the smartest, or one of the smartest organizations in the league. So you couldn't think that ten could get much better. But, as you were saying, the probably have one of the best draft. So that's enough of the skill position players. As a few people on the other side of the ball that we just want to quickly talk about. First of all, I just want to quickly talk about the beast that is chase young. He went pick number two from a higher state to the redskins. He won ridiculous amount of awards in College here won defensive players of the years many occasions, and also he won every defensive end position you can pretty much win. He broke the highest state individual season sack record, which is pretty crazy to school like that, and he was a finalist for the heisman trophy, which is very, very rare for a defensive player. So just shows how much of a nuisance he was to Qub's and no Lineman of the League. Lots of people were saying that he was the undisputed best player in the draft and the borrow only went ahead of him because of, you know that, the fact that the ban was needed a QB. So I don't disagree with that at all. Based on his tape, he looks pretty, pretty crazy really just courses carnage to everyone on the field, even sometimes his own players. Interesting fact he went to the same high school as Marquel foots, who was the number one NBA pick, I think three years ago or something. So that's pretty crazy the fact that that high school is now had a pick two in the NFL and a pick one in the NBA. The redskins. I was looking at them, I was expecting them to be bad and these elements, but they had really good stats in qb, knockdown sacks and qb pressures. So the fact that they're going to add one of the most exciting prospects out of college in the last ten years in all three of those areas it's going to be frightening fell position, qb and Oh Liman to face up to that thought. Thoughts on the Big Fella? Yeah, when you look at the red skins, I don't think they're too bad on the defensive side of the ball. So the fact that they're just added chase young I think makes him a scary prospect as a defense. But obviously they've still got a lot to work on in terms of offense. They're still definitely a little Park Ke, no doubt about it. So yeah, we'll have to see how they go. But Chase Young, as you said, absolute beast, scary scary prospect, most probably athletic talent in addition to just like the football capability that he has, and yet would rip rip Qubas to shreds throughout college from the day started...

...to the days finished. So yeah, deep, deep, deep resume and I think he's either be pretty or pro bowl off or used to come. I think he's an absolute talent yeah, I think he's going to be a base pill to do on it. Do you have any words to say on number three? Pick Mat yeah, sorry, boys, had to meet myself for a bit. There some absolute silly business going on in the other room. But yeah, I can chase young's an absolute giraffe. He's an absolute rhinoceros and directing is better than Nick Bosa. No idea. Col Iris is versus a person was very similar in terms of how he was raved about. So I guess we'll have to wait and see how they pair up against each other. But yeah, we are. Don't think we're going to see them. I don't even know if they've play against each other this year, but I mean, if they do, will be a wisper see them for that. Yeah, they do. They don't play on the same field at the same time, so probably doesn't really matter, but we I guess we can see able the comparison. Yeah, exactly. Nice. Yeah, who would you rather be sacked by? Chase Young? Chase Young? Good, yeah, I've got I've got a man crush on chase young. I'll say, you're just trying to you're just trying to get a bit of physical contact with the man yet in any form. I want to touch the absolute adonis of a man. I wouldn't want I wouldn't mind grabbing his deltoids. Yeah, all right, all right, pillched. You want to talk about the thing I actually asked you about? You want to mention Jeffrey a Couta, or you good, Jeffrey Up, trying to leave this one outside or stuff. Well, I'm a bit biased here because I am the Lions Fan, but I'm very excited about a couda because he's obviously a great cornerback and, seeing as we lost sleigh, it's exactly what we needed. So I'm just very excited to see him. But can't really think it's filthy the Hea'se we when you just bloody, when you just fucking changing between the packers of the lines every week, but not at that's enough from you, then. I'm sure. I'm sure he is great man, but I'm happy for you. All right. So now the final player I want to talk about before we quickly touch on Fred and see, before we end up this potty Isaiah Simmons. Mean quite absolutely froth this man. He is a line back up, but I don't actually know if you can put a position to him because, as they were highlighting on the ESPN coverage of the draft, he he just plays every position like he he spent almost equal amount of times at linebackert defensive end, cornerback and safety, which is just nuts. He seems like a bit of a Jamal Adams kind of player. How the fact that, although he is a defender, he is a genuine playmaker. And the scary thing is he is six foot for and he's like a hundred and ten kilos, so that's bigger and heavier than Jamal atoms. He runs a four point three nine, did you say? Yeah, for three nine, which is absolutely rapid for someone who, for right, I was, as I was saying him in before n a four, five two, which for for me is considered pretty elite. And I mean simmons run a three nine. So I guess you can see just how athletic this man is. I'm as much of a stretched is. He's almost almost as a potential talent, better than change, just because he's able to cover whatever you need, whatever you need it like. He can just he can move between positions, he's athletic, he's able to use vertical jump. Was Thirty nine inches, which is outstanding. So he's got serious leap in him. He can just you can do everything you need and he can rip, rip offenses of the part. Three interceptions, which he showed throughout his time Clemson. Yeah, so he's surprisingly slipped to pick eight and he went to Arizona, which is resigner is kind of looking tasty this year and lie given the Hopkins Trade. And so they're adding as eyes Isaiah Simmons to Chandler Jones, who was an all first team pro last year at the same linebacker and he also was second in sacks in the league. And then they had a pro bowl safety in but a baker. So that defense is getting quite scary and the fact that they've got Kyla and Deandre Hopkins on the other side of the ball, they're going to be a bit of a force maybe, although the fact that they are in the impossible division that is the NFC West, very strong division to say the least. I mean you've got pretty have Seattle, you got the Niger, two rams and...

...niners last year and ramp is head to win it or that the rams, obviously rams super bowl. Yeah, yes, yeah, yeah, so I mean that is an absolutely stacked a yeah, Jeb way, scary stuff. Yeah, so it'll be hard for Arizona. But peeled John, explain why you think Simmons isn't the number one linebacker in the in the draft class. I'm absolutely on board with you boys here. I absolutely ha ha, he share. Ye, he's. I think chase young a side. He's the best part in the draft. You're just talking shit now, man. Arizona is lineup is stacked this year, so I think about jumping on that bandwagon. But anyway, yeah, just just pick a third team to go for. Why don't you? I might do that. Yeah, I would just like to mention that two hours ago you were saying that Simmons wasn't even the best linebacker in the draft class and now you're saying he's probably arguably the best player in the draft class. So just sort yourself out, mate. So we've been on for quite a while, but we will just quickly touch on free D and See. Before we get into the free Aden see part of the podcast, I just want to mention that Andy Dalton has since been signed by the Dallas cowboys on a one year contract worth up to seven million dollars. This podcast was recorded on Saturday and the deal was made on Sunday. So anything we say about Andy Dolton just just just disregard it, and all the qb stuff we say still applies to Cam Newton. So enjoy thanks. So that the top three free agents left Cam Newton, Andy Dalton and Jadeveon clowney. So I think we should address the two qbs together, as their destinations are probably closely linked. So both have been released by their teams. They couldn't find a trade for Newton and then they were holding on to Dalton just to make sure they picked up burrow and then as soon as they got borrow, Dolton got the flick. So where do you guys us think of some spots these two could go? The XFL don't I I'm not not a big Fan. adulted in the lighters. adulting in was that right place? Is it because he's a ranger? That is it? Because he's a ranger? I love writing. Yeah, my favorite people. So yeah, dalting can get lost are but I'm Cam Newton't very interesting prospect. I think if he's like he was two or three years ago, he's the the best qb in the in the league. Like he's he's a scary talent when he's at his prime. So and he's still he's still quite still, relatively young for yeah, definitely how like. So he if he can get himself back to full health, he's a scary prospect, whichever TV joins. As for teams, I'd like to probably see him joy if he could join you, England, that would be, I think, one of the the best outcomes for him personally, but also for New England. I don't say I have ny but if it does, that would be a great, great prospect and a great thing to see because obviously New England are a fourth be reckoned with and with Ala check. And if you join, can you do with that? Who, I think, as of a probably the last year, if we're talking in terms of can need to be in his prime and where Tom Brady was came you didn't a better player, as controversial as that might sound. Sorry. If he can hit you in the up that would be awesome. But it's not going to happen, let's be honest. But he'll be I think he won't be picked up by a team until some point during the season. I think it will happen whereby he'll be picked up and added to a Rosster once injury start appearing and crack started period in teams. So yeah, I think we'll be waiting still quite a while until we see where can you can goes. Who Are you? Who are you taking? Cortis, prime, Cameron Durell Newton, or Prime Jackson, Lamar Jackson, Lamargactim at? Lamar Jackson, the past, it is prime. Well, Martin had near his prime, so it's hard to say. or prime from what he's had so far. The Mars had like two seasons in the NFL. Last season was scary. So if we're going to go buy that, probably Lamar Jackson. But where? We don't know what Lama's going to be yet, just because he's still extremely young. So he lamarth will, you know, could be the best you'll quarterback of all time. That's at for ages. Yeah, that I'm going Cam Newton for that Dialam up. I just heard you say of all time and I just knew it was outrageous. Yeah, so...

Lamar the best you could Ju coolback of all time running, run, any AIDS, throwing, for sure. I'm not saying he's the best Michael Vick. I think he's going to be bad the Michael Vick, for sure. He's breaking all Michael Vick's record at the moment. Yeah, the running records, not the throwing ones. Yeah, but that's what you don't have to throw because he's got legs of blood. Yeah, he's can rip anyone to shreds. I think you're going earli there. But yeah, it's a great play, obviously. So destinations for these two? I think Jacksonville is the clear one. If I'm honest. They've got mint chew and they're backup is an absolute magical so whether they signed Dolton is a backup to mint shoe, or Sign Newton and push min shoot to back up, I think they would be smart business from the Jaguars, but they are rebuilding. But then again, neither of these two are old, so I don't see why they would stop them from doing it. Patriots, I feel like they're going to be stubborn and stick with Jarretts did him. If I'm honest, they've reportedly made no offers for Newton and Dalton. So I don't think Patriots will pick them up, even though it probably, on paper, is the smartest move. And then the rest of the teams who could pick them are either teams who have young players that they've put all their eggs in their basket, like the jets, the Browns, the giants the Redskins, or they have aging starters, like the steelers or now tamper, that they could sign as a potential replacement or back up. So I don't really know what's going to happen with those two. I think your shout, Curtis, of them moving into it squad a couple rounds in is probably going to be a good shout. So we'll just quickly touch on Jadevi and clowney. Clown he's a genuine beast. He is a former number one pick, is a three time pro bowler and he's still very young. I think he's only twenty seven. So the teams I've got here? Well, first of all, are there any teams that you lads reckon should pick him up? Detroit lions. Yeah, they are one of the teams I have down here, actually, because I know you've just said it, because you go for Detroit, but I'll take it as a genuine suggestion, as they have super bowl winning D Lineman from the Patriots, tray flowers and Danny Shelton. So also with the board threatening Patricia about his job, I wouldn't be surprised if they just lay it all on the line and picked up clowney. Any any suggestions? Quite, Um, not really from me. I haven't really been reading up and CLOWNEY. So yeah, I'm not really too sure. Those to WHO's might pick him up. I really looked at the rosters too intently yet. Yeah, I'm just basing him. Was So far off last year. So I've been really following traders as much as I did for the draft. Yeah, so I reckon. Detroit's a good one, and then Atlanta and Seattle. Of probably the other two standouts when I was doing some research. Atlanta, they struggled defensively last year. They signed Dante Fowler, so it would make sense if they added another piece to their puzzle that they're trying to get back to their premiership window that they should be in right now, with one of the better quarterbacks and one of the best wide receivers in the league. And then Seattle, it would just make sense. Even though you didn't have the greatest year last year, it would make sense for him to go back there because they're in a premiership window, was super bowl window with an inform qb and a great defensive coach and Pete Carol. So it would make sense to him to go back there, even though he was not resigned by them. So that's it, boys, to do. Enjoy that. I loved it, mate. It was good party, I thought. And Yeah, it was just part of the last coup and I loved it. I loved it. Always love just talking to you boys. Well, what do you guys got planned for your weekend? Probably nothing. Maybe surf, the bay, apparently, probably debaate. Yeah, when for a run and I saw some genuine waves in Bowie. Yeah, so mt that's is be saying that it's pumping. So we'll have to see. Maybe a surf and the bay might be on the cars, but otherwise probably just catch up on some unique considering. been working a week. So yeah, fair enough. Hardest work with a Peel Joss or, as I just said, it's silly, resolutely nothing. Nothing. Well, we're reporting the tennis potty tomorrow being Sunday morning. So that's true.

That's true. Looking forward to that one. Now I'm actually looking forward to that one. Yeah, so bit of research for that one as well, potentially, hopefully for pillage, but let's be honest, pool won't be researching. But I don't need to research. I'm a human calculator. Oh my God. Yeah, actually the most arrogant man. I'm going to wrap this up a there is no one listening. The it's it's talking now.
