Oil pipeline route changed to save endangered Kenyan zebra with the help of AI and citizen scientists

"And finally also the triple. As A. I. TO RESCUE Zemmiri's Dan Rubenstein is a professor of biology at Princeton. Ai Comes in two forms. One is supervised machine learning and the others unsupervised machine learning and we use the supervised version in the sense that we can train algorithms to identify zebras by their stripes by the natural bar codes. And once we do that we're able to take photographs that scientists get or citizens get as they drive around on safari or school kids. Get as they come out to the national parks and we're able to say is this animal and seen before and because most cameras will have A. Gps or at least a time stamp will know where it was seeing and when it was seen so they I can start to tell us who went and wear an animal is on the landscape and then we can start to put together. Descriptions and visualizations of its movements. We can look at where it's home ranges are this because particularly important because in one example. We've always been troubled. Why WANTS PEACE? Zebra gravy Zebra with the long thin stripes in the white belly in the Big Round. Mickey Mouse years are much less Paris than the Common Zebra. The planes eve which had big fat stripes that touch under the belly and it turns out. It's because the plains Zebra drink every day and they go to water and around waters lots of Deng and Deng have parasitic eggs from nematodes that then mature into questing larvae and the larvae. Then wait on the grass to be ingested and so by going to the water every day they reinfecting themselves frequently but the gravy zebra are arid adapted. They only have to come to water. Abouts every three to five days and so we thought Maybe they're so far from water whether very few dung piles whether it's very few questing larvae. They don't get infected as much. Maybe they're healthier because of that test that with you take pictures of animals at waterholes. You don't know how often they come there but if you measure their home range and make the assumption that if the home rages close to water. They use water a lot in the central. Did the home ranges far from water. Then they won't use that waterhole very often and hence they'll be grazing where there are may being larvae. We were able to prove this. Isn't that wonderful now? What if you had no air? What if you had no pictures? How long would it take you to get to that point to understand what's going on you know? In the old days in the old days I used to hand draw every zebra stripes and I would go through and look at my pictures. Then we have one hundred animals. That's easy but when you've got thousands of animals and thousands of new drawings to be processed. You'd be there all year just looking at pictures not doing the science so over time. I worked with different types of technologies all of which sped up the work a little. But it's the machine learning and it's in what we call wild book. We've created facebook for animals where we have images for whale sharks and leopards and Cheetahs and zebras we can process tens of thousands of images so the AI. Naturally speeds up the work. It changes the scale at which you can operate on no longer. You restricted studying a few animals that you put. Gps collars on you can study the majority of the individuals in a population and therefore make inferences. That are probably going to be more biologically accurate and to get all these pictures from even kids in the field on holiday. Whatever is the public willing to hand these other limb to you the gravy Zebra which is very endangered species. No one actually knew how many there were. Everyone's said about two thousand. Maybe twenty five hundred and with numbers that have high variability. No government is going to invest very heavily in projects to try to conserve the species. If they're not really sure if they're at risk and so how. Do you get really good numbers. Will you help blitz? And we do it on a Saturday and Sunday two days in a row but we don't have to invasive Lee touch these animals because they naturally bar coded but how do you get all the images around twenty five thousand square kilometers. Well you work with the many publics and Kenya you work on the conservancies up north by giving cameras with GPS recording ability to the people in the communities that share the landscape with the zebras and their livestock then you can also close Konare. Ob still five hours away. You can engage the public to come up for a weekend. We get discounts from the hotel's people bring their kids and go camping. The kids get to use their parents cameras. For the first time we bring school kids up from the slums of Nairobi. And blend them with the kids. From the landscapes. We work out in the immortal bushy areas so they get to see kids from different lifestyles so becomes a social experiment. Social Novelty Fun weekend and we get about forty or fifty thousand images from this and we do it. What animals are seeing on Day One? What animals are seen on Day? Two and then we very simple question. What fraction of animals that were seen on Day Two? We're seeing on day one and this allows us to estimate the population size using simple statistics. Let me ask you a slightly political question. Let's say you've found an endangered species in small numbers and there's a major development happening and you go to the people who in charge of this major development with millions. And you say there's a problem. What kind of response do you get? That's happened in the real world with us in Kenya. So we noticed on one particular. The Zebra numbers were going down and we knew that the lions were adapting to the very predictable movements of the prey. The zebras we also know it was a conservancy that had eco-tourism so the people wanted to both see endangered grabby Zebra and they want the sea. Lions so lion numbers are very high and they were just picking off the gravy Zebra and we went to the Kenya. Wildlife Service and said. Could we do some adoptive management and experiment with reproductive control not to eliminate the lines but the slow the line growth rate so that both species could coexist and their initial response was well in nature this predators and prey and they have to learn to live with each other and so our request was denied? We weren't asking for any money. We're just asking permission to use this contraceptive technique after the great gravity's rally when we shared the data for the number of Grevy Zebras by county and most counties had about thirty percent recruits. That's Vince one. Year olds in two year olds are mathematical models say that a population will sustain itself. Bits bits about thirty percent made of these juveniles and infants. They saw the population on the part of Mary. County as being the only one way out of line when they saw that we now can use birth control and that comes because when we talked to the cabinet secretary said I believe your numbers and I believe your analysis because you didn't get the data. The public got the data. My citizens got the data from the pastoral people to the school kids to the urbanites middle-class in Nairobi. It was a national effort and by making sure that everybody got involved. Those numbers become real. In the minds of policymakers and sways them to change their behavior. Sure but what? If it's pipeline motivates with millions millions of dollars and examples that indeed Kenya discovered oil and its northwest corner and move that oil to Lamu on the coast. A NEW PIPELINE NEEDS TO BE BUILT. Pipelines caused lots of problems in the US issues everywhere. This pipeline this fears that it's going to disrupt animal movements because corridors are going to be blocked that animals views. And if you don't know where the cars are and you don't know where the hot spots are where the animals breed and where they get their resources. There's really no way you're going to be able to try to attenuate these negative consequences so all our data showing where the animals are and where the babies were and where the moms were and where their home ranges were and how they move by season. We were able to demonstrate that the route of the pipeline has it was proposed would not only go right through the nursery area where the MOMS take the babies to fatten quickly but it also blocked a lot of the carters that allowed them to get to the dry season. Refuge is where the food was that they needed when the rain stopped. We then wrote up a report. As part of the environmental impact statement assessment and the government and the Pipeline Committee realized that with the iconic historic species the gravy Zebra being only two thousand eight hundred left on in Kenya and the basically three thousand left on the planet. Because they have a few hundred Ethiopia. They decided to change the pipeline. And that cost many. Millions of dollars weld Yeah that's where science matters but again it's science not done by the Shamans wearing the white coat in the experts at science. That's a partnership between the muddy booty colleges the technologists that have Ai. That make the day to get gathered at a different scale. In both time and space we can get it quickly and we can get it wide ranging and to get that they that we need the public and so by blending those three partners. That's what makes government's move professor. Dan Rubenstein at Princeton and AAA S. The public that's you make government's move. He said

"The. Welcome to the solid. Verbal. For me. I'm a man on forty. I've heard so many players they why wanna be happy you want to be happy for day. Eight estate. Untie? Welcome back to the soliver, boys girls. My name is Tai Hildenbrand joining me as always over there in beautiful New York City. Good friend and co host the one the only Dan Rubenstein, sir. How are you? Unlike our friends in Athens, Georgia I have shown up ready and prepared for duty and success. How about that? Yeah. It wasn't impressive performance before the committee. I hope they like what they saw. You know, what it really was tie to me? And I'm sure you felt this too as as a Notre Dame fan feeling people just beating down that that story line of Notre Dame not belonging. Right. The very end of what was it? The final Lord of the rings the eagle stores. Carrying our clan to the rescue. It's incomes Georgia's complete sloppiness and in attention to any sort of detail to to take some of that pressure off of the faithful Irish. Yeah. It was definitely a lifeline. I didn't get my full wish with a high state losing as well. Yeah. Fair. But we'll talk about that game. In addition to the George game. In addition to a bunch of other games that we haven't had a chance to recap Hello on Thai. He's Dan, we are the silver. We're going to be continuing all throughout the off season. We've got one game left that we're going to preview tomorrow. So stay tuned your podcast feed Thursday evening at some point where we'll drop that official preview show. And then of course, recap at some point early on Tuesday after the game between Clemson and Alabama actually takes place today, though, we've got recaps we've got some college football news, which of course, dropped right? Right after we hit the stop button on our last show when we went through some other bull action. We'll talk about that big news from Miami as of Sunday here momentarily. But yeah, just a nice casual dress Wednesday show here. One more game. That's all we have after this. Yeah. Officially passed multiple games on the same day that portion of the college football season with the final gun of Georgia, Texas here we are. And we feel pretty good here. We are Dan. Let's do this. Okay. On sunday. We had. So it came out of left field that Mark richt was retiring effective immediately as head football. Coach of the Miami hurricanes set off a bit of a firestorm because again, it came sort of out of nowhere granted the season didn't go as expected for the Miami hurricanes. But I don't know if anyone quite expected that Rick going up and leave the job as expected in light of this sudden announcement there was a lot of speculation right away. As to who the next coach might be Bruce Feldman, our friend. Bruce was tweeting out about all sorts of names lo and behold by evening, it ends up being Manny Diaz. No, Manny D as was the defensive coordinator for the Miami hurricanes in native son of the greater Miami area. But he had just agreed to be head football coach at temple Miami acts quickly they. Bring many D as back from the brink of the city of brotherly love back from the brink. Like, she was about to be shoved into a pool of magma. It's a little colder up there up here. I should say. Yeah. Now as it stands managed as going to be your new head football coach at Miami. How do you grade the higher? I like it. It's interesting to me. And I do appreciate the fact that they moved swiftly and Manny Diaz. I'm sure had a moment of. Here's this opportunity facing me. And not unlike what happened, I suppose Willie Taggart and Florida state except that the even spend a full year or month at a new gig just a matter of weeks. And so if he were going to make that move, you gotta make it immediately. And he did he you know to his credit..

"I feel like a lot of Mississippi State and Kentucky. How about safety? Yeah, they've got a couple of safeties in the senior class, Kentucky to kids that I think are pretty good in Jonathan Abram, this kid is a physical freak, and he started as a true freshman at Georgia and was really, really good as a true freshman had some issues there had to transfer out, went to junior college, went to Mississippi State is the number one junior college safety in the country. This is a high school quarterback five, eleven. He's two hundred and ten pounds. It was a great baseball player in high school as well. He reminds me a lot of like Justin Evans and Armani waas. Those two free safe as it came out of taxation in the last couple of years, he's athlete, he's rangy, he's competitive and he's he's a high effort guy, but he doesn't always take great angles through the football. He can be a little bit slow to react to the things and he's just, he comes in so hot sometimes as tackler that he's a little bit out of control and will miss. So he's not fearful of fearless tackler. He's just got. To be a little bit under more under control. But Jonathan Haber was a rotational player for them in that secondary this past year, I'm excited to see him as more of a fulltime guy. The ceiling is very, very high, which Jonathan the neighbor, and then his teammate back there. Mark McLaren he's been more the Scherf fire. The solid started back there. The athletes schism is not anywhere near what you see with Abram, but he's a good Blitzer and he does play the ball pretty well in the air it. You just got to question the range. Another another. Similarity with the tools. They don't always take great angles, but this is a big body kid who can play the ball in the air. I think he's got a shot to make it as a backup and special teams player. So those are the two kids from Mississippi State Kentucky's got Mike Edwards and Kendra west. I'll talk about Edwards because I think he's he's probably been one of my favorite safeties that I studied so far. I'd say he's a top three or top five safety and the senior class. Oh FOX, he's small. He's five, ten and a half. He's just over two hundred pounds. He's got corner skills though. He can line up in the slot. He can shadow receivers. Inside and the SEC not a big time, run defender. He's not a strong tap actor. That's going to be the big knock on them. But I think he's got some versatility and he believed to play a free safety on the back in the NFL. So those the guys in the SEC that I've watched so far, some other guys that are on my list, John battle from LSU's Egypt woods from ole miss. And then underclass wise Deontay Thompson is kind of like MAC, Wilson from Alabama, and that he didn't really Klay much until the end of last year. So I'm excited to watch him heard good things about JR read from Georgia's well and then Chauncey Gardiner Johnson from Florida that kinda rounds out the the watch list for the safety position friend that was amazing. I have mixed emotions right now. On the one hand, I'm sad that our conference preview episodes are over, although everybody can go back and listen to the conferences they might have missed. But that also means we are getting closer and closer to actual games which I know some of you might like to put a little..

"And then Jordan Jones from Kentucky. Honestly, I watched Jordan Jones and Josh Allen together, and I like Jordan Jones more mean. I think his game translates a little bit better to the next level. I think when you watch him, he's under size, he's listed like you know to fifteen or something. But this kid's quick, he's he's instinctive and he's not afraid to come down to only needs to get better as attack, but but he's not fearful coming downhill. He's not worried about coming down hill and trying to beat a block. And so I kind of liked that his mentality, his physicality was there other guys in the senior class stuff to watch? I've talked about this Auburn duo before in Daryl Williams into Sean Davis. Those guys were seniors this year, not Patrick from Georgia. I have watched athletic kid. He's got off the field issues to worry about was a starter for them at the SEC champs last year. So interesting player Drake, greenlaw from Arkansas to res- Hoffa Missouri and then underclassmen Devon, white. A lot of people think could be a top fifteen top twenty pick have not studied him yet. So I'm trying to see what he shows on film and then TJ Brunson from South Carolina in that mix as well. Let's get to the secondary. You know, I feel like I'm saying this every position group, but there's always a good long. It's in the SEC. We already talked about greedy Williams at LSU. What else she got de'andre Baker is probably the biggest name at in the senior classic corner. You know, he's just under six foot. He's a little bit light. One eighty five range, but this kid he's really good zone coverage. He's got good hands to finish the catch point. I'd say his speed is above average to good. Like I don't think he's a blazer, but I think he's got more enough speed to be able to play on the outside. I don't think he's got great quickness out of breaks. I think he'd be a little bit late to dribble at the top of a route and the other issue I've got kind of like what we talked about was greedy Williams earlier with dad. He can be a little bit late to my little bit slow to find the ball downfield. So those are the issues I've got with the Andre Baker, but I think he's a solid player overall. Kentucky's got a couple interesting kids a corner, Dirk Beatty and then Lonnie Johnson as well. Eighty six to he's one hundred ninety one. Pounds. He's got long ours. He's really quick for a long corner. I don't know though that he's speed is something that you would look at saying it's a leak. That'll be a little bit of a question Mark, and he's not a great run right now. That's honestly my biggest disappointment within considering his size. So that's the big thing with him there and then line Lonnie Johnson, it's the other corner. Another kid he's over six foot two. This kids over two hundred seven pounds. He's the prototype at press corner in terms of what people are looking at for looking for at that position. Now he's just not. He's the big question with him is speed and then starting experience. He's a big body kid. He can really help themselves with a strong senior year. So everyone's talking about Dirk baby, but don't forget about Lonnie Johnson as well. The other seniors in the SEC Jamal Peterson, Mississippi State Ken Webster from ole miss Keyshawn, Dixon and recite sent in from South Carolina, and then underclass relies auburn's gotta do, oh, they're in Java's Davis, and Jamal Deen Ronald kurkin from zoo and Jalen Jones from ole miss. Those are the corners. I've got my eye on going into the season..

"I do think he got better in that area as the year went on just can't can't just run by tackles and the NFL and it's not going to fly. So he's going to have to get better there. He's gotta learn that. But I think early on, he's got the ability to be a sub package, ROY. Scher because of those tools and you just hope that you're able to bring him along and he could turn into more Georgia's got a kid. The Andre Walker who when I first started watching my thought, maybe he's an off the ball guy, but as I kept watching, he reminded me of another former Georgia guy, Jordan Jenkins who came out Jordan, I wanna say three or four years ago. Now outside linebacker at the New York Jets. This kid is so strong. He dominates tight ends in the run game. He kills offensive tackles in the run game. He's a great run. Defender needs to put it together as a pass rusher. His best role I think is more of a three, four, Sam, or even a four, three Sam, more of a Jack of all trades type as opposed to being like a pure pass rusher. But this kid's gonna line up off the I loved watching this kid play. He's he's a really fun player. Watch kind of similar in ways sound like a Ryan Anderson coming out of Alabama a couple of years ago as well. The big name to that everybody's talking about is Josh Allen from Kentucky was getting a lot of first round buzz. I would say earlier this spring, he's six, five. He's two hundred and fifty pounds of former high school wide receiver from north jersey from Montclair. I just don't think he knows what he's doing yet in terms of getting after the quarterback. I don't know what his best position is. He's not really strong or powerful. He uses his hands fairly well at the point of attack as a run player, and he knows how to lock out and drop his weight and hold up. But after that, I'm not sure where he isn't. He lines up a couple of different spots. I'm excited to watch him kind of develop into this this final year of his career. It's a pretty good defense there for Kentucky. We've got a couple more of their guys to talk about, but he's a guy that I think is a little bit overrated at this point talking about him as a first round pick. I don't see that kind of guy. Other players rook with Al always has players Jamie, Jamie, Moseley, and Christian Miller, Jonathan Ledbetter from Georgia Jefferson from Florida. Those are all guys in the senior class underclassmen, Anthony, Jennings from Alabama, thinks a nice player. Terrell Lewis guy that he tore his l. this summer. Awesome. I loved this kid on film watching that front seven Terrell Lewis. I think he's going to be a great player. It was really. Sad to see that he got hurt over the summer jabbar's Zuniga and Jakob Jakab polite from Florida Marlon Davidson from Auburn, Ed Alexander from LSU and mckelvin GM from Arkansas. The other names that kinda around up my watch list lot of running hit linebackers off the ball and the SEC we have to watch and have fun with this year. Yeah. MAC, Wilson from album is the guy that I most excited about because his best plays and he does not see see things quite as clearly as this guy did. His best plays look like Reuben foster from sideline to sideline. His physicality is explosive traits. He just not. He's got to see things a little bit fast. You'll only started a couple of games last year at the end of the year due to injury. So when Sean beyond Hamilton went out Mak Wilson came in this kid, he's got all the tools. He looks really, really good. I'm excited for what he'll look like this year with another year, but he's really good coverage. And that's kind of been his role throughout the course of his young career. I'm excited to take on more of a fulltime. Role right now this year, but this kid is really, really fun. Darren Kirkland from Tennessee is another guy that I watched last summer preparing to the season. He was out for most of the year this year. So you got another medical year a redshirt year. There were rumors that he was going to transfer. Then he announced that he was gonna stay with Tennessee. That's the kind of a weird situation. But Kirkland on film I thought was really good..

"The guard just wasn't there, but he still was a little bit wild with his hands there. So it's weird to watch parts of two games. You see a guy give up two sacks and you still like him. But that's kind of what I came away with thinking. He's a really good player. I think he's a really good player. I don't think I like them more than trae atoms. But interesting. I think he's, I think he's at tackle. I think he's more of an insecure guy, but I enjoyed watching who else will she have on the offensive line. So the other guy that I've studied so far Zack Bailey from South Carolina who's got experience both tackle and guard this guy who definitely has short arms, and I think is definitely more of a guard than he is tackle. He played on the outside last year and he also got banged up. So I know his film last year wasn't quite what it was in years past. I still kind of like to know I really liked the way he battles. I think that you in terms of being. Run blocker a front. He's got really strong hands. He's really tough to shed. I just don't think he's got the feet to play outside. He too often. He gets keyed, get caught lunging and I think that lack of length really kinda showed up there. I think he's more that road greater type on the inside to, you know, put them into a shoebox there. I really like Jack belly though, and I'm excited to see him this year. It sounds like he's moved back to guard and he's also got some reps there at center as well. So he's going to be a guy that I think is you know, after a big year now in his senior season, other players, I look like Alabama's got a couple kids in the senior class. Lester cotton and Ross Pierce Bacher, Mississippi State. They've got a couple of guys up front, some young guys, and then also a couple of seniors. The Calhoun and Elton Jenkins Florida's got Martinez Ivy and Frederick Johnson. I've watched ivy's kind of that big, you know, the kind of slug right tackle, and you know what kind of a throwback there. Khaliq fro Holtz from Arkansas's name. Dennis daily is a guy that I've heard some good things about who played tackle for South Carolina. So he's a name, Greg Lil from ole miss is a junior at left tackle for for the rebels. I have watched him. He's he's an interesting guy because he's a big body who I think has good enough feet to be in the outside. He's not. I wouldn't say he's got great feet to play left tackle. But this is a big kid who kind of holds his own in terms of his strength and his also ability to move people front. I think he's got really good is, and he just like to see him be a little bit more consistent with his hands and you got to be realistic about what his athletic upside is, but I kind of liked Greg little. So I'm excited to watch more of him as well. Let's get to where the SEC typically dominates. Let's get to the d. line and as usual, Alabama has a total freak show. Yeah, Rick Juan Davis is, you know he's got the ability to be outstanding in terms of his, he's a physical freak in terms of his dimensions. I'm pulling up his numbers now. He was he's six, seven, three, six. He led the team last year with eight and a half sacks, and I still don't think he knows what he's doing yet as a pass rusher. So I mean, that's that's a scary thought. Just ended up itself. He's winning purely base of this physical skills. I think he could be a defunct Buckner type when it's all said and done Ross. Like I think that that's really if you really like him and you like what his skill set could be. I think that's the kind of player he is. His size is length his strength on contact. He's really tough to move. He's just gotta get better with his hands as a pass rusher and it overall plan of attack how just wanna see more consistent motor. There are times like I'll watch is Ahah bugs the guy..

"So I do like Joan Williams, honestly. He's one of the best overall players I've studied in the country and I, I don't know how you like them compared to trae atoms and some of these other guys that you studied. But I really, really liked Jona Williams. So I really liked them. Also, it's interesting. I watched parts of the national championship against Georgia end the semifinal again in. So I watched parts of both. He actually reminds me, I don't think he's quite this athlete, but and maybe it's just the number seventy three. But he reminds me a lot of Joe Thomas like a lot. I think same body type. They look the same in their past sets. They both have short arms. He looks like he's short arms to me. I hurt them same thing. Yeah, I think I think it was the Georgia game. He got beat on outside club, but I think it was Lorenzo Carter. Or you know, he went with to hand punch Carter, wiped them both hang around down, went around him, you know, especially if you have short arms yet to be more of an independent puncher because you don't have enough time to recover if you miss. And so I but his past set was right on the money every time he's powerful. He's very good as in technique. I thought he had really good pad level and movement in the running gear from what I was watching. I wouldn't be surprised if he's like a Tonio, Zack, Martin, all pro guard type, Brandon sheriff something will might see him that way. Others might try him at tackle first. And his arm length might have something to do with it. Then I also saw against Clemson, it looked like he, he overset got beat inside for a second. I think he had inside help and..

"I'd like to see him get a little bit more consistent there. He did have some drops that I think he can cut out this year somewhere. He got took his eye off the ball and is trying to get field before he's able to secure the catch. But this kid has got all the traits that you look for. I mean, he's a good enough at more than good enough athlete. He's not truly explosives quicker than he is fast, but I'll tell you when the when he's got the ball in his hands, he's moving at a different speed. I just hope that he gets some reps on the outside this year just to prove that he can do it because that will be that's going to be the big, knock on AJ Brown. If you come out is, can he play outside or is he just the slot receiver? For that reason. I mean, the thing, the thing you're gonna hear constantly and I don't think that the comparison is crazy is Jarvis Landry and then Jarvis Landry led the league and receptions last year mostly as a slot. Receiver got some of the best hands in the in the NFL. He's outstanding after the catch, he's super physical. That's kind of where AJ Brown is, and I feel that they have some similarity. Is there. I don't think it's a lazy comparison to make that to make that juxtaposition. So I would look at AJ Brown on the outside and this guy lined up mostly to the left that's decay. Metcalf. This kid is a physical freak. I mean, he's six four. He's over two hundred twenty pounds. He's been time reportedly in like the four fours. You can jump out of the gym. You look at them, you look at pictures of this kid and he's, he looks like he's all rocked up. I mean, he's he's like Arnold Schwarzenegger playing the wide receiver position. But when you look at them, I don't know the, he says successful in contested situations as I would like to see for a guy that big because he's not super explosive on film. I didn't think that he showed those dynamic test scores watching him on the football field. So to me, his skill set speaks to a guy that's going to have to win and contests situations. And while he did win some, he didn't win as many as I would like. But he is a big strong kid. He needs to get better as a route writer. Again, this is going to be a young kid. He's only redshirt sophomore going into his redshirt sophomore year. So he's still has a couple years of eligibility left to work with so decay Metcalf. And then lastly, DaMarcus lodge for all this, this kid's burner, he can get outside and run by people. He's probably the most explosive of the returning rebel receivers lines up mostly to the far right. All these kids are going to have to learn how to run routes from all over the field because both lodging Metcalf only run from from one side right now lodges explosive, you can go up and get it. He's one of my favorite receivers that I've studied so far in this senior class. So other seniors that are on my watch Terry Godwin from Georgia, Joseph Hough from Missouri. And then from the underclassmen list, Marquez Calloway from Tennessee is a junior that I still need to get to. I have watched van Jefferson who was the other ole miss receiver. Last year he transferred out, he's going to be at Florida. He's kind of like lodge in that he's more of a burner. He's a straight line guy can lineup inside and outside, but he's a vertical threat receiver transferred there because he wasn't happy his father Shawn Jefferson was in the league. A long time and now is a receivers coach. I want to say he's either with Miami Jacksonville, either way. It's in the state of Florida. I think that's a big reason why van Jefferson transferred to the Gators and then Jerry Judy is a guy with Alabama's a true sophomore that I'm a big fan of big kid with some athleticism and he's, he looks like a pretty polish route runner in the little that I've seen from so far tight end friend who we have in the SEC tight end this year. Yeah..

"That was the main issue that I had honestly watching this kid because otherwise, I think is tools are pretty good other players to watch that. I've got on my watch this senior class Jordan, Tom, who was at ole miss. He did play some last year because shape Patterson was kind of out of the lineup, the flashes that I've seen because I've watched the receivers for all miss. We'll talk about them in a bit. He kind of looks leg. Look adult. Don't hold me to this, but in terms of his bills and how he throws the football time, kinda reminds me of Jimmy Garoppolo just like physically and this all just watching the receiver. So I'm excited to kind of dig into his tape and see how he did last year and then Kyle Shurmur. Now we'll be started going into his senior year with Vanderbilt, so he's a guy still have to watch as well underclassmen long list. Jake Bentley's at South Carolina. I know that there are some people out there that are really high on him fully Franks. His battling for job at the university of Florida. We talked about Jake from Georgia, his sophomore class when I guess at Alabama, Tula and Jalen hurts and Alabama, the how those guys are going to battle it out for Alabama. It seems like to tag avowal Loa is going to win that job. So we'll see how that goes at Alabama, but it's a long list of quarterbacks in the SEC. What about friend? The running back position other than Damian, I feel like we've been talking about Damian Harris for three years on this show I well rightfully so because I love Damien Harrison. Every single time I watch whether it's an Alabama, offensive, lineman, William watching Joan Williams or any other guys up front or watching a defense and they're playing, it's Alabama. Gaming hires does things that just make say, like, I just, I love this kid so much. He's got great vision, great balance. He's very slippery. He's got great feet in the whole. He's not like an explosive athlete. Let's going to constantly run to get to the corner and like blow by defenders down the sideline. He's not that guy. He can do it, but it's just not super high level, but this kid has everything that you want. I mean, he's he's a really good pass protector. He catches the ball while the back so that I mentioned that vision, that vision, the ability to make people miss. I think he's got everything you want to be kind of a fulltime back. So I really like Damian Harris. There aren't really any other seniors that I've got my eye on right now. They're on. Watchlist in terms of underclassmen. Florida's got a couple of kids. Jordan scarlet didn't play last year. So I'm excited to see him kind of bounce back this year going into his, I guess, what will be his redshirt junior season? Well, Michael p Ryan is also there for the Gators Benny Snell as a player that some people are high on out of the university of Kentucky, Josh Jacobs from Alabama's well, Nause Harris from Alabama. He's going to be a true sophomore that backfield is loaded as always we know about Georgia's backfield and all the kids got coming back. A lot of youngsters there, Georgia, and then Trayvon Williams with tech, sane as well. Let's keep it moving and go next to the wide receivers. We talked about deebo Samuel. You mentioned all the South Carolina guys. Who else do you want to talk about? So let's talk about the trio from ole miss because I think if you look at trio from South Carolina is really, really good. But I think when you look at this whole mystery, oh, that's probably going to they're going to be getting bigger headlines right now. AJ Brown is getting a lot of positive buzz right now. He's going to be a true junior, four ole miss and this kid lines up primarily in the slot, and that's where that's where he got my I would venture to guess he got all of his reps inside last year. He's six one. He's two hundred and twenty five pounds. He's a big kid. He's got great size, and he can out-muscle people at the catch point what I love most about AJ Brown and it's very similar to depot Samuel in this way. He's outstanding after the catch. You know, he look, he's coming along as a route runner. He's not quite ready needs to be yet, but the flashes are that Aaron in a big way..

"The offense is a little bit of an issue, and it's going to change this year because Derek Dooley is coming from the Dallas Cowboys. He's going to be the offense coordinator there and he'll be calling all the shots because Barry of defensive guy. So this is going to be Derek Dooley show. Now on the offense of side of the football footwork wise, I'd like to see this kid get a little bit better and his ball placement is not great. That's one thing that I've got a concern with. He doesn't throw with grant patient at this point in his career, but physical tools are all those big kid. I mentioned a big strong arm, and he's athletic people are going to make the Josh Allen comparisons right off the bat. I don't know that he's like, you know, the NFC is just probably aren't as bad, and I think Josh Allen was probably a little bit better. He's probably a little bit better of an athlete as well. But this kid is really, really talented. I think when it's all said and done, he's probably going to be in that first round discussion when we're talking about guys in the spring, I do think that drew lock is going to end up being in that first round discussion. So I've watched drew lock really, really big fan of his skill set. What. He can bring next. I'll talk about another senior and the Knicks Knicks Gerald from Mississippi State actually watched him over the weekend. He's six, five, two hundred twenty five pounds. He's a three going to be a three year starter now is going into a new system. Dan Mullen left. He's off to off to Florida. So they're ushering in a new offense there at Mississippi State. I I'll be issue to see how he's used because he's a big kid and he is athletic accuracy is a major concern for me and mental processing is a major concern for me as well. He takes a little bit too long to get through his reads, and when he does get through the accuracy, especially late in the down, if if it's not a catch and throw kind of situation this, this could be very scattershot. He's very Radic especially in the intermediate area that's going to be a big concern for me and I wanna see him get a little bit more natural. Muddy, talk it when he's under fresher. I think he kind of doesn't fold under pressure, but you could see the his process really speeds up and then he gets a little bit more uncomfortable. So I'm going to be interesting to see how. He develops this year and that new system, but Nick FitzGerald. I think he's got tools to work with, but you're probably talking more about developmental backup type of player right now. And honestly, I don't think there are a lot. It's a lot of differences between Nick FitzGerald in the last guy I watched and and that's Jared stood him from Auburn. And I mean he's six threes, two hundred fifteen pounds. This is a former five star fruit. He played as a true freshman at Baylor, then all the stuff went down with them. So he transferred out. He went to junior college for your didn't play football. Then started last year for Auburn. He's got, he's got decent size, and I think his arms pretty good, but the issue I've I've got this kid number one, he takes way too long to get through things. He stares down receivers, he holds onto the ball way too long. His anticipation is really, really low level right now, and he does not move well in the pocket too often. You're gonna see edge pressure with this kid, and instead of stepping up, he's committing that cardinal sin of stepping back and bailing through the back door, the pocket, and that really got to God himself into a lot of trouble. He doesn't really. Force the issue in terms of making bad decisions with the football. He just holds onto a way too long, and I just worry about his mental processing. That's an offense that's very simplified for just because of all the different layers of that offense, all the backfield action, all the spread option. Aspects of that offense. It's a simplified scheme and he's just really slow to kind of get through things. So I'm hoping this year in year two that he's able to see things a little bit faster and he's able to get that ball out a little bit quicker..

"Look, I mean, the only played in three or four games last year outside of staying healthy. What are the limitations you see what this kid? Where do you kind of see him in terms of the grand scope of college? Football. So the traditional limitation if we were looking at him in like two thousand three would be, he's a Twitter, right? He's not a huge receiver. He can carry the body of the backfield. He can return kicks sort of. Inbetween things, but as and it's even just football as basketball moves to the point where you're looking for versatility you look at, you know, tyreek hill or Anthony Thomas or Percy Harbin these guys that can occupy various roles they are, and this is another. I'm stealing a basketball term here that somebody else made up. It's he's a gravitational player, your eyeballs. A linebackers eyeballs are pulled to him a safeties eyeballs or pulled to him because on any given play, if he has any bit of space, he's just gone and you're right. He only played three games last year. I think he had three kick returns. Two of which went for touchdowns. He had like three carries one of which went for a touchdown in terms of efficiency getting into the end zone. He's one of those guys where you think when he turns back to look at somebody closing in on him, somebody creating that angle when he looks back, he's going to slow down, but he's one of those people where he looks like he's jogging and separating himself at the same time and with South Carolina specifically this year, their offense should be okay. It should be fine. It might be. Pretty good if it's not they're going to need points from creative places and that creative place is a man with an excellent name, deebo Samuel and I imagine they're going to as they try to go more uptempo as they try to spread the ball around a little bit. They're going to find creative ways whether it's in the screen game, whether it's jet sweeps, whether it's sending him deep, whatever it is. He's versatile enough that he is that gravitational player in the SEC this year, and it's a great receiving core down there because Brian Edwards is junior. I think he's a stud or Trey Smith really shot up after deebo got hurt last year. He's a big kid to six, four, two hundred twenty pounds or really well coached. They're all pretty good route. Runners can do a lot of different things both inside outside. So that's, I would say probably one of the best receiving core is in the country there for the Gamecocks. The other stat I love deebo Samuel. He played in three games. He's still finished with the tied for the team lead and total touchdowns over the course of the season with six, he was he was such a game-breaker for them. And I think the game against Kentucky. I mean he was the when you got hurt think it was the first drive and Kentucky's got a pretty good secondary being by. I think it was Lonnie Johnson and coverage in just of smoke. The rest of the team ran down the field for a long time. I'm I'm a love of big fan of deebo Samuel. So last guy Williams and who really kind of jumped onto the scene this past season long corner, six, two hundred eighty plus pounds. So he's a little bit light, but he was a redshirt freshman last year. Where do you kind of see his future? I mean, a lot of people are talking about potential top ten pick. Is that kind of how you think he's should be viewed at this point in his career? If he develops the ball skills, he's not yet through, yes. If if he develops those ball skills, he the way he plays and the speed with which he operates. He is a stain on receivers. He is somebody they cannot get off their jerseys, and that is something that is it's hard to teach. He has. The instincts to play that position at an incredibly high level. As you mentioned, he's tall, he's long. He's what? Six one, six, two. He was tested a lot deep last year as a first year starter for LSU. And from every you know, possibility he got there. He got to the ball..

"And from the very start and I told Fran this, he was the captain of the team like there was no. I don't know how it happened, but the coaches told me like he just went up there and got everybody in stretching lines. They all started stretching and they just listened to everything he said, and he was immediately like the guy, the alpha male among the whole group. That's just kinda what he's about. But also, you know, he's not the most physically gifted guy, Dan, and the guy they have coming in because I cover Penn State here in central Pennsylvania. The guy to have coming in just in fields was originally committed to Penn State, and he's like one of the most. Outrageously talented school prospects I've seen in a long time. So I'm just curious. What do you think of from as a prospect in how much of a chance is there? Do you think that he splits time this year? I don't know if he splits time. I think fields will see some action just because they want to see what they have in him. And it's also a situation where if from continuances trajectory, he will be the starter this year. Next year, you know, all things pan out a leave after next year with his trajectory, but they have to get fields on the field to keep him in the program itself. You can only sit a guy so long before his eyes start wandering in college football in two thousand eighteen. And I think everything you hit on is right about from the leadership. The confidence you are a true freshman coming in starting against Notre Dame at Notre Dame and his very first start winning that game and game over game becoming more confident more successful. And they didn't the big credit to Georgia and their offensive coordinator. Jim. Any is they didn't treat him like a freshman. They understood his ceiling, the understood his capabilities, but he his footwork was on points. He would rock back and step into throws, timing, throws anticipation, throws to the back shoulder downfield. It wasn't like it was all check downs. It wasn't all short stuff. Even though they didn't throw a ton. They trusted him to run the offense and the results speak for themselves. He had the great running game to lean on last year, which is why he didn't throw it a ton. But by the time the season ended, he was more efficient against the best teams on Georgia's schedules. We're talking about teams with winning records. He was more efficient than Sam darnold, Josh Rosen, Jarret stidham who's obviously back in the same conference trace McSorley nearby. You will Greer who's getting all sorts of Heisman hype. Khalil Tate's this guy, Jake from did a better job getting the ball to his receivers accurately quickly and in a winning way. And if again, the trajectory speaks for itself, if he keeps progressing the receivers won't. Be as good this year as offensive line will be as good. The running situation won't be as good, but to project forward, he looks like he should be one of the first three picks. I guess this would be the twenty twenty NFL draft, sir. I three quarterbacks taken, excuse me. Yeah, I think when and you nailed it, Dan, when you said that he's doing it in a winning way. I mean, I I haven't done a full study on Jake Frahm just because he's not eligible yet. But when you when you watch the the national title game, and I've watched that game now between Georgia's offense and the guys who are coming out last year to Alabama's defense, which has all those guys last year. And then I was like eight more defensive lineman this year. I've watched that game so many times and every time I always say, man, like look at that throw from Jake front, like, look at that poise, you'll look at the ability to navigate the pocket. I mean, he he's always showed flashes. I've watched them against Auburn. I've watched a lot of those games against some of the best defences on that schedule, like you said. And he constantly he was just very efficient. He looked very calm. He looked collected. He looked. It was just really impressive watching that from a true freshman, like you said, they, it's not like they, they just said, look, we're going to keep the training wheels on and it's going to be heavy screens and keep it simple..

"He's the star of the show you follow his Twitter handle it. So impressive. Fran Duffy at Duffy three. On Twitter. He worked for the Philadelphia Eagles. He's the video and scouting guru over there such an awesome opportunity for us to have him working with us on this podcast. Today's guest will be Dan Rubenstein from the solid verbal podcast, which is an awesome. Awesome college football podcast really looking forward to talking to Dan. We are breaking down the SEC today. We always save the best for last next week by the way, how about a preseason mock draft? You can me how much fun is that gonna be preseason mock draft with Fran a week from now. Right now, though it's time to get to Dan. He's our best available interview. Still available interview very excited. As I mentioned for today's guest, Dan Rubenstein Rubinstein, what is it? Dan Anderson? I think you're now. Rubenstein Rubinstein. Okay. From the solid verbal podcast. So you guys have a really popular show man. What's what's the secret to the success. Just hitting record as much as humanly possible. And when there are weeks where we don't feel like it do it anyway when there are times where we are on the road and wouldn't really want record, we bring our microphones and we really discovered that so much of sports coverage from the fan perspective, even from the media perspective can get a little bit snarky and we sort of came to the realization that we'd love college football and it's not that we don't talk about negative stories. It's not that we don't try to get everything from every angle. But like this year when we're previewing these divisions, we're just trying to figure out why you should care about pretty much every team to just give people a reason to enjoy college football because we only have it for like three and a half months. So I think people respond to that giving people a reason to care is a is a cool way. I think to look at it. I like that a lot. That's awesome. And I love college football. I get a chance to call both college and NFL games and I don't know, man, I, there's just something about the band's. There's something about the charge in tree. I- I- jokingly say that college fans go to the game, cheer NFL fans go to the game too. Yeah, a little bit of a different atmosphere, but we wanna talk SEC today we've been doing a preview series so we we are mainly a draft podcast. So we focus on the best prospects, the best players and discuss them year round. And then you know, going into wants the game start. We talk about the match ups of the best prospects, right? So maybe it's, you know, Jona Williams against an edge rusher from Georgia, whoever, right? So that's kind of what we do. And I wanted to t. up on some players that that you in particular wanted to talk about. And so here's my thing. Okay, Dan, I'll just give it a little sneak preview the three guys. You wanted to talk about greedy Williams, Jake from and deebo Samuel. Okay. You pick the to do with the awesomeness names course deebo and you. Guy that I believe every three months has some sort of outdoor sports incident or injury, whether it's like fishing or hunting or something. Is that, is that why these are the three guys you picked? Absolutely. This is absolutely correct. There's actually a lot of I didn't even think about this in terms of the NFL draft, but it's it's pretty simple to put it in those terms actually. And as for your last point, there's something kind of great about especially a quarterback who is active, who is not just a quarterback, who experiences the world who can connect with people in different environments. Carson Wentz is a big hunter. Aaron Rodgers is a big, traveler know. Tom Brady might be sort of one track minded, but I think that's rare. Sam darnold was a three sport guy in high school, and you know, it's just wired a little bit differently and Jake from I like that fearlessness I like that he is developed as a human being. I think that goes a long way for quarterback. So I didn't do that on purpose, but I can appreciate it. Let's let's talk Jake from because I had I had him in the US army bowl a year ago, or I guess a year and a half ago now at this point.
