"Because i do think it's going to be kind of a patchwork deal for them for a little bit and we'll get to that later on with the rookie thing but they just cannot afford to have. What has happened with their lasts like ten first round quarterbacks. Happen zack wilson. They can't just have a guy who's tortured behind lines constantly. Sam darnold sacked. Once every twelve plays last year Which is insane and You know so. They can't have that roster gifts going to waste another number two overall graphic. Yeah and because they don't have a veteran transition plan. Zack wilson is their plan. Makes the line even that much more important. Also wanna shout out your use of big bopper. Big bopper mac ten. Ooh yeah. that's i don't know a teacher brand ship. Yeah yeah. I think we know a guy. Get a t shirt. Get some hanes regular t shirts and just just writing sharpie on it. See where it goes. See if there's a market for it Biggest offseason addition rookie. Why don't you just keep cooking with your jets off into line. Yeah let's just. Let's let's continue this offense of line monologue that everybody came to the podcast here So allies avera tucker and Is mine and joe. Douglas traded up to make this happen. i think that a lot of people who had been sniffing around on the jets pre-draft had thought that maybe robert solve is gonna get another edge rusher to pair and cut a book end and complete that defensive line but the fact that they traded up to get allies ver- tucker shows how important he is to make this whole thing work. And you know. I talked to jeff schwartz who was a eight t eight year An fell pro about the outside zone. A little freaked a couple of times and he said the one thing that people don't understand is how integral that guard position is to running that offense to and for example. You know the titans got roger. Sappho old from the rams a couple years ago because they needed him to make that work. It doesn't work without roger cellphone and still the jets. Think elijah vera tucker. Is there roger sappho right. We need a guy that can get out there and run. We need a guy who's gonna be able to do blocks x y and z really. Well and so. I think that that's huge. Because if the system works right when you're trying to marry the run in the past. That gives zack wilson. The kind of time that he was used to byu. And if it doesn't then zack. Wilson is gonna have to learn to throw faster than he's ever thrown in his life which he gets he still is but to a point of uncomfortable -bility and i think that's where we're going to get into trouble because zack wilson was not touched last year. Byu i think he was pressured. Once every thirty. Three or four snaps. Because i had to look that up recently. That's not a lot that's like two or three times a game you know and so. That's that's a pretty incredible thing to have. And he's not going to have that. Note the jets but with tucker you might at least be able to simulate the experience a little bit much offensive line play. I was just gonna say conor is talking about blocking schemes in which players will make them work and for my pick for biggest offseason edition rookie. I picked the patriots quarterback. So i'm the basic one. I went with mac jones. You know the easy obvious. Pick here..

And before I say loaded, Mel and Todd, I'm gonna give them like five extra seconds to catch up on some sleep and say Thank you, everybody who spend time listening to us. Over the last handful of months, plus the people that I'll make this podcast possible. Mike Boss Matt offer David Presley helped bring this podcast to life through video, Daniel dot our intrepid producer and all those involved with the audio product. It was a banner year for us, and it was a banner year again for Mel Kiper Jr and Todd McShay. Mel, How are you doing after the draft? Have you slept more than like six or seven hours per night? Since then, a little less like that survival? This is kind of our bear Grylls moment. Throw us out there and We could come back and still stand today after a couple days after the draft, and we're still standing. We're so excited. Hot. Scott is mock draft for next year coming out Thursday. I've already got some guys raided that I got a big board coming out in two weeks for next year's dress up this one of being a rearview mirror will move on to next year pretty soon, But today we'll kind of review everything and come up with some Some ideas about who we think did well, some surprising, puzzling moves and wrap up the dress. I'll tell you what, guys. A lot of good players went on draft and they've already signed with respective teams there. You kind of your 8th and 9th round picks, and some of those guys could be in camp and and helping things this year. The national football it hanging in good. I told type of the story yesterday. So my parents both worked for Delta. Right Growing up. I've been flying on planes since I was like 89 months old. I've never been able to sleep on a plane ever. I so we I'm flying from Cleveland to Boston, and I got a tap on the shoulder. It's a flight attendant, and he says it's time to go. You got to grab your bag and go. Ah $100 seats heated and one that was my safe. One veterinarian 150. People had passed by that I slept through the whole thing and I look around and there were people with You know the cleaning through the trash bags cleaning everything up on the roof. This is embarrassing. Isn't it? Lucky that no one had somewhere else to take you out to take it. Oh, yeah. Good One wound up in Germany. That is amazing. Well, it's certainly well earned, and the content has not stopped. The draft is over. I know Mel astonish draft great artist on his biggest question, Mark, You mentioned that ties doing his 2022 mock draft, which comes out on Thursday mail. You're working on your big Board. The draft really is a 365 days a year event, but we don't want to let this draft that just went behind us passed by without taking at least one more bite of the Apple to review some of the picks that were made some of the strategies involved by teams and maybe those that we felt like fair, stronger than others. So we're going to start in reviewing this draft by starting with teams that we thought How to stand out draft knocked out of the park. So, Mel, I'll give you the first pick. It was a team that knock knock this draft out of the park. A two ways the Miami Dolphins are so it had a great trance. I don't do they get players to help on both sides of all. We got 2023 1st round pick from the 40 Niners, but Jalen Waddle Jalen Phillips should be impact performers of pass rusher and Phillips and a receiver. Return Man. Put returner and Waddle Jamaan, Holland Liam like the bird hunter long that second tight end Barnell Coleman at huge book an underrated attack while you mask They did really well in the Chargers, I thought lined it up. They sat. They waited for Slater to be there. He was a 13 Asante Samuel, junior cornerback from Florida State line. The more underrated players goes that 47. Then they get guys like Chris Rough. A good pass rusher in the fourth round. I like Brendan. Hi. Mrs. Potential in Nebraska know about the Senior Bowl practice. I went back. It's those the tape in the brass, Katie. He held up very well. There was the Cornhuskers Roundtree running back in the sixth around. Nice pick there. So I gave the Chargers and the Dolphins of two highest phrase in the Giants. Kind of amended that Came up the B Plus should have given him a day They moved down twice. They got a first round pick next year from Chicago. They got social or in a second to various Tony and the first added some real good players along the way. So I'd say that the Dolphins Chargers giants in that order for May. I was just saying that comes to mind for you. I was just to say quickly. Gettleman. Dave Gettleman. The GM of the Giants has never traded down before And so he kind of went against the grain and move down twice, and I thought it over. Really successful draft. I'll start with the other New York team. The Jets. I thought Joe Douglas did a tremendous job and listen. He deconstructed the roster and get got all this. This draft capital on 20 picks over to your span so that he can maneuver around. He's not going to spend all 20 text, but it's just figuring out the guys that he wants. Obviously sitting in number two They love Zack Wilson, the quarterback from BYU. He knew that he wanted to go up and get Elijah Vera Tucker, the offensive tackle in college, who's gonna kick inside the guard from jets to put.

"And they're going with Jones and and that's the end of the story, but it's just to me, it's a, it's a matter of when not if it's going to happen at some point. It's just how long can cats hold Mac Jones off. All right, so judging from your comments about Justin Fields, the Patriots were not in love with Justin Fields, they might have liked them know, but they were not in love with him. Why have you been a gather, any information as to why they? Wow, everybody's pretty, everybody's pretty tight-lipped on that. I don't think if Justin Fields was on the board at 15. Now you want to talk about maybe owner pressure and things like that. Now if Justin Fields was on the board, they're fifteen that would have been an interesting discussion cuz I don't think they would have picked him. Maybe they would. Are you saying if both guys were on the board at 15, just one? Okay. Okay. So if phones were already gone and field was sitting there at 15. Yeah, I don't know if they would have took fields and maybe that's when crap pipes up, even though I still don't think that would ever happen whatever Bill wants to do. I I just don't, I don't think they would have taken field service, but that's just me. And, of course, now the conversation will be for the next 10 to 15 years. Justin Fields versus Mac Jones. Yep. Although I do think that's a little unfair wage because again what we've seen in the process is yeah, exactly different systems. Different Personnel. Yep. You know, just because one guy thrives at one place doesn't necessarily mean he would thrive in that they're like, I don't know if n'keal Harry went to another team to start his career, he have different. He would have different success. So that conversation is always a little weird. One last one before we move on to the other pics of this trap cuz I want to get to all off. Guys, you got a little information about Elijah Vera Tucker, we had talked about this on Thursday night after the first round wrapped up. We both wondered you and I if the jet pack up to 14 to draft Vera Tucker because they might have thought the Patriots were in on him at fifteen. Would you hear about that? Yeah, that's why I went and I asked because that it wasn't anything. Anybody report was just hooked. The Jets jumped, the Patriots to take Elijah very Tucker and the The Logical. Next step is they must have had until that the Patriots were going to take him. They might have thought that look I asked you can make you can make of it. What you will? I was told it was quickly dismissed and they were like now he's just a guard for us. They were not going to cause they were not going to take him there especially with Matt Jones dillenburg. All right, let's move on a Christian barmore. Obviously made a big-time move early in the second round. Wage Redwood Cincinnati, they move up. They select the Alabama defensive lineman, your thoughts on the trade up and I was reading some stuff that you wrote some of the risk that comes along with barmore. Yeah, I look in general with draft picks in the draft. I don't really care. I don't have an opinion on their pics. They do, they have much more information than I do and they're good at what they do and I'm the type of guy. Okay. Pick you guys I want to watch him on the practice field. We'll talk in three years and so we'll see I'm far more..

"Me. We she wouldn't but she won't let us forget about her. Three days. 11 picks out of the Star Tribune Meet the players drafted by the Vikings will start off with the first round pick Vikings. It wasn't a surprise to you to see the Vikings make that move. Drop back into the first round a little bit accumulate. Cem Cem later round picks and still, according to Spielman, and the Vikings officials still get their guy this Christian Darussalam offensive tackle out of Virginia Tech. Yeah, I I would say it's surprising to me that they moved back nine Step nine spots and still got him for me. And this is all guys on paper people watching you two videos. I don't watch all 22 film for hours and hours on end, but There's a guy available by the name of Elijah Vera Tucker, and he was an offensive lineman out of USC, and he was available right there at 14. That is who the Jets ultimately took when they did the trade with the Vikings, and I loved that player on when they trade back. For me because I'm 36 year old man, child that works on a sports station. So I get too emotional about it. I was pissed off and I'm looking at Indianapolis there. I think it picked 21. I saw a couple of teams in the mix. Okay. Christian Dara saw After very Tucker for me was the right choice and s O by the indeed uses holding your breath and cross your fingers that nobody says the name Dara saw between put picks 14 and 23. I honestly didn't think he was going to be there. Anthony Castonzo, former first round pick of the Indianapolis Colts, long, illustrious, productive career and Indy He retired. And so now you bring Carson Wentz over there, which they did in the off season. And I'm thinking they want to do something with that Left tackle spot. I'm thinking Marisol is gone. They take quickly pay the pass rusher. Out of Michigan. And we've heard from both general manager Rick Spielman and Mike Zimmer that once that Domino fell, they officially were able to have a sigh of relief. So to speak, and know that a 20 A 23, where they moved back that they were going to be able to get their guy, so they got him and then the equity they got. They got the two third round picks and that kind of created that waiting game on Friday to see what they were going to do with that is their song. It's two starter. Yeah, He's so absolutely is going to start on day one. That should be the expectation and anything less I think is, um, I don't want to be, you know at hyperbole, but it's football. It's mildly disastrous. There'sa Bring us of Super Bowl. That's the real question. We go win a Super Bowl. Now it's the ultimate team Questioned, Arris saw an offensive tackle. He's gonna be. He's gonna be fantastic. Yes, a little bit of grit, their eyes replacing Riley, refi and kind of look at it like this in a way, where When you take that tackle, Um you kind of get yourself back to where you were in 2020, where you're replacing Riley Reef, And I think the what's next part of that, with this historically, least over the last decade awful interior. Of offensive line. Ever since Steve Hutchinson essentially left we've had issue producing on the inside with strong, beefy, nasty guards, and so what they were able to do on Friday as you look down the list of their picks. That kind of that That I think has to be married to the dairy sauce election say That's where that's where this all seemed to work. I watch some film on the on Wyatt Davis, who was one of their one of their fourth round picks. Third round picks. Third round pick third round pick 86 Watch some film on him after that announcement, and that I I liked what I saw at a wide Davis. I know it was kind of late pick. I know there's some size issues there. With him that people are kind of concerned about his frame. And then you might be a little bit. Yeah, yeah, anything but but he's still gonna be in that 3 20 range He's I mean, he's bigger than as Rick Cleveland is who we went to work with every week last year. And it will be, uh, either left or right guard. I don't know how that'll shape out. Yeah, the thing for me with white Davis. This is where things got weird. And and why? I like to say that Rick Spielman ultimately found the right answers and found his way to the guys that that he wanted and guys that least the ones I'm familiar with. I really liked You got it was fortunate. I don't. I don't want to use the term lucky per se, but in some ways if they had traded up into the second round and took Wyatt Davis at 56 instead of 86 you read the scouting reports. And this isn't me. This isn't even Rick, who's always going to be pumped up about who he selects. People throughout the leader like Holy BLEEP, This is amazing value at pick 86 that you got for this card and again marrying him with Darius saw and the idea that when you traded back, you're a topic goal was to get back into the second round on Friday. You're unable to do that, but still end up with this quality player at 86. From an offensive line standpoint, I don't think we can ask Rick to do more than he has done over the last 34 years in terms of Trying to turn around and awful position group and it's something that could become a strength. So very positive news with those two guys stepping back a little bit and painting with a broad brush because I don't know how to do anything other than that when we're talking Vikings, um, looking at the issues that the Vikings were faced last year, when you look at the overall group of players that they were able to get Do you think that those issues air being addressed? Are you seeing picks that perhaps are looking at places that maybe you You weren't expecting well, so I think that I think that they checked all the boxes in terms of addressing the positions all ultimately until these guys get on the field. That's where the true grading starts is. Did this workout Dara saw us. He has to be a day one starter. Otherwise, that's a terrible pick. Why Davis has to be a day one starter. Otherwise, it's a terrible pick. So, looking at really two things with this team into the draft offensive line hideous needs to improve defensive line. We have Daniel Hunter you get Dalvin Tomlinson via free agency, Michael Pierce was a 2020 Opt out just is gonna be a difference. Make this bowling ball of a human from the Ravens. He's easy, a major difference maker. So if you look at all the issues, it's very easy to say We didn't have a pass rush, which we didn't Rookie corners were bad at times, which they were but one issue that this defense constantly had a year ago that compounded all that exacerbated. All of it was the past the run defense. And you put two bowling balls in the middle with Tomlinson and Pierce. The last thing you got to do is improve on. I think it's the lowest number of sacks might be the worst defense simmers had in his career. It was 21 or 23. Sacks is a team that's that they had 50 the year before. So just picture just cutting the statistical production in half. The rotation at defensive end right now, whether it's Stephen Weatherly, and then you're gonna have DJ want him who kind of flash a little bit of this at different times last year, so he's in his second year. Then you take Patrick Jones late third round. Hey, had 17 sacks last two years of pit and then and then Jin areas. Robinson, who's kind of like this raw, just he's cut out a stone long arms. I mean, he could reach out and touch it from seven ft. Away. He's Amazing athletic specimen, but he wasn't productive. He's not technically sound, and so they taught themselves. Mr Andre Patterson is a guy that could develop a guy like to Neil Hunter Guy like, ever seen Griffin 1/4 round around a USC now 11 years ago. Now it's just time to do some work with with Patrick Jones and Engineering is Robinson so addressing those positions On addressing the A topic needs for the team on paper. It looks like they did that real quick..

"I don't fault people for kind of sitting there. Yep. Like, but that's the kind of just need at you go out, you put all that Talent around them. People say, oh, and play with all the tone, what you're going to do, will sound like he's playing with them, right? They're not putting them out there with the group, they put him out there with last year, to putting them out. There were two of the best tight ends in football, they upgraded the wide receivers. We'll see what they do. Kind of here on day two, if they add another pass-catcher great offensive line, and he just has to operate. He just has to be in that neutral in this is a team that can win the division. Now if he's just in that neutral which he can be in, intelligence goes goes a long way in that, like you said, Justin feel, yeah, you can really fish pump for Justin Fields. I think people would be a lot more excited, maybe about that one, but when you look at the cost to get them uncharacteristically, aggressive ended last night, it made it right up until the track. Then it hit a wall. I don't know the filter back on the first round still pretty aggressive but you're right. It's not, they could have saved that for Justin fields that would have been uncharacteristically aggressive and they didn't do that. But it if they weren't dead. For into Fields, why bother, right? Why do that then? And it's not being uncharacteristically aggressive. Then it's taking a quarterback just to take a quarterback, which is what we call pulling a trubisky. So I, you know, to me, they, they just did what they need to do. C, c o, b. Take care of business as what they did. They they again they have that plan. Now I get that people. Maybe aren't you know, super excited about it, but would look into it. This is ultimately a good thing, it's a good pick, they made the right decision will see to what extent it works out. But, you know, especially when you look at, I think some of it is the board. I I think we were really nearing a worst case scenario. My boss was at what point me too. And, and at what point do you have to? Wait? This is something that we talked about on the street last night of, okay, its a mac Jones at the quarterback position versus trying to ask you kill and monitor or Davis Mills, right? And, and Doug, kindness and put out there. But he had heard that if the judge didn't take Elijah Vera Tucker at fourteen. Yeah. Some might have taken Elijah Mara Tucker at fifteen wage. If Jones works out, this is the second time. The Jets have pushed the Patriots into a stud QB. Yeah. All remember that. And they and they would have taken Davis Mills in the second round. I think there's a significant difference if you're just going to tear them together. I think there's a significant difference between where Mac Jones is and where those dates you guys are right now, active, right?.

"Good draft. Now we kind of it's hard. To not like a team's draft when they have multiple bites at the Apple. In the first couple of rounds. And the reason why they do. Is because they've been a bad football team. So the Jets of Elijah more Zach Taylor. And Zach Wilson wearing keeps saying Zack Taylor Zack's thinking in the Bangles. Jack Wilson. They get Elijah Tucker out of USC to get some protection First, Wilson and now they get him a weapon. That is called investing. In your young quarterback. I like to picks Elijah, Moral, Miss wide receiver. I like him better. What? The better wide receiver, in my opinion went to the Jets. 20 picks after the Giants pick their guy. So I like what the Jets did there. Zach will send Elijah Vera Tucker and Elijah Moore. The three picks for the Jets are to argue with that. A couple of your thoughts here. We want to try and time things up as best we can so we can React to the Broncos selection together. Oh, let's see, Alex says. I hope they go with, um Jeremiah a wuss Ooh, from Notre Dame, the inside linebacker. Rondell more out of Purdue will be a steal for someone. He adds, is that Broncos you're open that they go Jeremiah loose. Ooh! I think that I'll be good. I think that would be a good pick. Oh, the Broncos have just moved up. The Broncos have just moved up. They traded with the Falcons, George Payton said. Last night, there was a player that they wanted that they were not able to trade up for could there have been A player at a similar position available right now that the Broncos went up just went up to go get Don't want to go to break because it says the pick is in and I'm falling for ESPN is trapped here. Who could the Broncos, possibly beginning? Jeremiah Woo Suk or Amoah or they going tackle. Right. That has to be it so Heaven. Jenkins or Jeremiah Wuss. Ooh! Carmela See which one it is. Drafting Jeremiah Woo Suk or Amoah, I think would Peas, the section of Broncos country that wanted Michael Parsons. Is not as good as Michael Parsons. But I think, yes. Similar skill sets. Maybe a little bit better and coverage. The Michael Parsons is So I think if you're Bronco fan and you wanted Michael Parsons last night If they go, Jeremiah Woo Suk or Amoah? I think they'll make you feel better. There's nothing that the Broncos could do short of landing Aaron Rodgers that makes up for passing on Justin Fields. If you wanted Michael Parsons, which I thought would have been a better selection and number nine last night. Then Patrick's or Tan You can make up for that by grabbing. Jay. OK, Do we call him? J. Okay? I don't know. I'm getting used to saying Jeremiah Woo Suk or mo and watching not be him. It seems like you have him and then you got a bunch of tackles. Who's picking Who's the guy picking for the Broncos? They're getting legend. Can't tell who it is quite yet. As picking for the Denver Broncos here. As they tried out legends of Oh, Billy Thompson. There he is. Billy Thompson. Making the pick for the Denver Broncos, and it is Come on now, Billy, give us the pick. The Denver Broncos move up with the Atlanta Falcons to select Broncos fans. Air happy Joe Vontae Williams. The running back out of North Carolina, Philip Lindsay's replacement. So now as we put the pieces of the puzzle together George Payton says last night. That there was a player they wanted to trade up for, but he didn't go far enough. He didn't fall far enough for them to get him. Could that possibly be Nausea, Harris Or Travis at Tien. Travis said Tien makes a little bit more sense. Complimenting Melvin Gordon, the nausea Harris does. So if the Denver Broncos decided That they wanted Travis at Tien and we're willing to trade back into the first round, but he was taken in the twenties. So And here's Here's what George Payton said. Last night. About whether they entertain the idea of potentially moving back into the first round. Yeah, that's a good question that there was a player that we really way were trying to get that was falling. He just didn't fall far enough. So we were in discussions with teams. We needed him to fall. You know, in the mid twenties for it to make sense. And before we can I came out here. We just sat with the scouts, and we really like our board for our second pick. I think there's eight we're picking a thin around. I believe in their eight players were really like, so we were gonna get a good player tomorrow. And they do get a good player. In Japan today. Williams. There's been a lot of heat on these North Carolina running backs. How? Maybe if you get one of them. Later. It's better than drafting nausea Harris or Travis AT T End in the first round. Again. You have Jeremiah Woo Suk or Amoah? Who fits in need, just like Michael Parsons did last night. And setting aside the quarterback stuff because I've said what I needed to say on that. For now, anyway. Vontae Williams seems like A promising player..

"At nine. You had fields and Jones on the board. I was sitting here in our in our studios hosting the show last night with J. R. We had a blast. I'm saying this is perfect for my team. I thought my team is gonna walk away last night. With Justin Fields and there we have to trade up till like, eight or nine to go get Justin Fields. And then once the Broncos didn't take a quarterback ago, you have fields or Jones. I take either and you could stay put it 15. Now No one sees really a trade up happening. That's what makes it so fun. And that's what makes the draft so awesome to watch. You said on the edge of your seats, and I give credit to the Bears. They knew that the Patriots were gonna take either fields or Jones. So you go get the guy that you love. If you love someone, you can't wait. You gotta go pounds, and that's what the Bears did. And that's why they ended up doing at 11. Michael Parsons does go, 12. Had picked number 13. I give a lot of credit to the Chargers. They stayed put and they did a very good job and going and get out there and get in. Justin Herbert, another tackle. As they did draft for Shawn Slater out of Northwestern. So you could take you to move on. I have 14 the Jets trade up, right? You're one pick away right after the Bears did trade up. I put out a twitter video. You've got to get Mack Jones. Bill, Go get the cookie monster. So once you did see that trade up, bears get Justin Fields it all those other picks. Jets trade up. Vikings Go back. Jets ends up getting Elijah Vera Tucker. The Jets had a really good draft. So far, first round you got a quarterback with second overall pick and because you have so many resources, you had another first round pick. You end up moving up some spots and you go get maybe the second or third best tackle in this draft. So the Jets move up and then a 15. The Patriots get who I think Is the third best quarterback in this draft class in that Jones And I like Mack Jones. Why people don't like back Jones is because he's not what the quarterback position is in 2021, right. It's not very mobile. But Mac Jones was an absolute stud at Alabama last year, You know, I know people going to say all Well, it's easy when you have Devante Smith, the Nazi Harris and I know that jail wallet got hurt, but he could have him for like 45 games. And you have a tremendous offense line you're playing for next day, even some of us still football. And I look at Mack Jones last year. Yes, the receivers for Alabama great, but it's not as if they made so many plays that bailed out Mac Jones. I think that's a perfect fit for Matt. And I think for Bill Belichick, he answered everything I could have asked for this offseason. I said to Bill, Go give me hope this off season. Go get this team moving back in the right direction after one year playoff hiatus, And he says that Cam is gonna be the starting quarterback. We'll talk about that in a bit. They made. They called their shot last night on who they think will be their next franchise quarterback and you have to trade up to do so. So I thought the Patriots and a home run last night with Mack Jones. That was the story line. That was that was the biggest story line of the draft was where the five quarterbacks here to go. We knew Lawrence is going on. We knew Wilson is going to I was surprised that Lance did go three. But I knew this from the minute when I first talked to Trey Lance I'm not gonna sit and tell you. I thought he's going three. When I talked to him, and now people are talking to him. You didn't. I did an interview with them. And I remember talking to Mikey Be my old producer right after that, and we were both gushing with, you know, on a few sieve, amount of praise and many words of extol mint. Just how professional he sounded. And you get in a room with them, or you talked him over the phone. It's amazing that the guy is like about to turn 21. It's like crazy. It seems that he's a seasoned vet with 10 or 15 years of experience, so he's very impressive. Any impressed, unwound and routed odd The San Francisco 49 or so they will get their quarterback. There's go get their quarterback to Justin Fields, and the Patriots get their man to eventually replace. Cam, and maybe we could see if he could go get some Consistent postseason success returning to one Patriot place. Was the biggest storyline here opinion in the NFL draft. For me. It's where the three quarterbacks did go that we don't know where they were going to go and Trey lands Justin Fields and Mack Jones, 40 Niners, Bears and the New England Patriots. Come on back. So, Trey Lance in front of him right now is Jimmy G. Justin Fields and friend right now is Andy Dalton. Back Jones in front of him right now is Cam Newton. One game one rolls around. Was gonna be starting for all three of those teams. The guys that they just drafted or the guys that are now all currently placeholders until those youngsters already we'll talk about that. Next. It is this that killed show often running on a big football.

We have been collecting poems from listeners on the theme of emergence all month, and we have had so many great ones. I wish we had the time to get them all on the air, But I thought right now as we're closing out the month You and I could read a few Are you up for that? I have come prepared. We plan this will let people in on that little behind the scenes tidbit. I am so psyched, David. Okay, Well, the first one I'm reading this is ah, haiku. Called spring gardening amnesia. This was sent in by listener, Kiki Short. Of Port Chester. Fresh shoots poking up. What the heck did I plant there? Must wait to find out. And that's it, And that's it because the haiku goes by so fast, well, the one that I picked is just a little bit longer, but it's also about something that we might say. Looming is the wrong word because this is not in the area of flora, but it's called in Queary of cicadas and for people who don't know cicadas. Are these insects that only come out every 17 years? In the spring, and this is the year and I haven't heard any yet, but we are likely to hear a relatively big noise that cicadas make in the coming weeks in our area. So MJ crop of port of Port Jefferson Jefferson on Long Island wrote in Queary. Of cicadas, and it goes to sleep. Perhaps at ease. You are there. Just below waiting in place for years. Not that we ever know. And in sudden bloom, as if from dormant seeds. Your company attends us to what end for your needs. Not floral are your forms of sprouting life in night presenting in clamor, a turning crop of flight cicadas. Why, just now? The point of your choosing, is it perhaps some teas? For your amusing Huh? You're not wonderful. And you know in the topic that the station chose for listener contributions and national poetry month emergence so many people. Shows emergence from the pandemic right in one way or another. And so I loved that MJ crop protection chose three emergency service cicadas after 17. It's perfect when you only get to emerge once every 17 years. You deserve a poem and let's at least let's be honest. Okay, I have to read this. This last one here. This is called Go Play by Melissa Yellow. Don't give me your poems of nature and morning and birds don't sing the words of windswept loves like prairies on fire. I know only the language of school lunch boxes and diapers changed and fears heard. The only poetry I know of birds is one Ms Frizzle told me about how they are dinosaurs. Ancient. Yes, but also A sign of a shore spring. Which means that these kids can finally play outside after dinner flowers. Be damned. Self explanatory, and we can all relate. Great. I just want to say a big thank you to every single one of you who sent in a poem. I know we didn't get a lot of them on the air, but we we read each and every one. It was so much fun to have these this month. And you can see a sampling of them at gothamist dot com. Backslash poetry 62 degrees now mostly sunny skies today a high of 66. This is W N. Y. C.

Why O L O stands for you only live once and reports are that millennials, especially after a year of slack and June burnout. Are leaving their jobs in surprisingly large numbers, in some cases for completely different careers. Some have turned their side hustles into full time gigs or heading back to school. And wondering if this is a millennial thing. Did any of you and other age groups also do that, Um, who decided life is too short to be stuck at your current job. And how are you Navigating this? What did you tell your parents 646435 70 to 86 46435 70 to 80 for anybody who quit your job during the pandemic. While other people were losing theirs in voluntarily, um another angle.

"Been selected in the first round of the 2021 NFL draft. As the draft is ongoing in Cleveland so far, Trevor Laurence off the board to the Jacksonville Jaguars, Zach Wilson to the Jets. You did see Trey Lance. That was the first surprise of the night. Go to the 40. Niners. Kyle pits to the Falcons. Jamaar Chase to the Bangles. Jalen Waddle goes to Miami Panay soul to Detroit, JC Horn, Patrick's or Tan back to back corners going respectively to the Panthers and the Broncos Devante Smith. Wanna trade up goes to Philadelphia, The Bears traded up to get Justin Fields. That is probably the move of the night In the biggest talking point from this draft, Michael Parsons, then goes to the Cowboys at 12. Justin Herbert has a new pal. That's for Shawn Slater, the offensive lineman from Northwestern. The Jets already had Zach Wilson. They go get him another offensive lineman to compliment. Mukai Beckton. That's Elijah Vera Tucker out of USC. The Patriots get their quarterback of the future in that Jones even Collins out of Tulsa. Goes out to the desert with the Cardinals. Alex Leatherwood to Las Vegas, Jalen Philip, staying in Miami with the Dolphins. John Davis. Going to Washington's football team could areas Tony on the trade back to the New York Giants quit he paid to the Colts and then Caleb Farley. And at number 22 to Tennessee Jr other than Trey, Lance and Justin Fields of Mack Jones, the quarterbacks being the big talking points. What is something else that is really stood out to you tonight. Well, I'm happy that the Eagles went out and selected Devante Smith. We had no idea where he was going to end up where he was going to go. And as I said, when he was selected, I think this is awesome for Jalen hurts. He granted it was only four games. If you multiply that times, four he was on his way. To more than 1000 yards on the ground, But we know in the NFL, you still have to throw the football and having Devante Smith out there is an excellent target. Regardless of how much he weighs, because if you can't jam him at the line of scrimmage and he gets off, you can forget about it and you also pick up you get Devante Smith and you pick up another first round pick in the process from the original trade back with the Miami Dolphins, and some could argue that Devante Smith is going to be a better football player. Then jail a model that's always gonna be a fun debate for years to come between those two former teammates at Alabama for May. I look at what smart teams do in this league and that is protecting a young quarterback. I look at the Lions. I don't think Jarod Golf is the answer, but the how the new quarterback in the next year or two, maybe three at most. You got today, So they're tremendous value was Sean Slater is going to help out Justin Herbert immensely. And then the Jets, who had in another first round pick, They traded up and they get Elijah Vera Tucker there. It's not sexy, but there is nothing wrong with going out there and protecting your young investment at the quarterback. It zah beautiful thing. I tweeted this out about the New York Jets. You know it. ZANU time New management. New general manager New coach. And it looks like for once they're actually building a solid foundation for a winning football team. No one knows what any of these players are going to turn out to be. But if you think about the potential of Zach Wilson, if you think about adding an offensive lineman to help protect them, you think about having Mukai Beckton. And Vera Tucker. This is a This is a good situation. If your jets man, you can't be too upset, and then the Jets the details of that trade one more time They traded pick number 23 numbers. 66 86 for number 14 a number 1 43 overall, and it speaks to Joe Douglas and awesome. Jeff bands were annoyed with all the resource is that they got for Jamal Adams. But they have so many resource is Through the last, you know, you know, coming up this year and then in the next two years, you have a lot of picks. So when you identify a player like Elijah Vera Tucker, and you think you have to move up to go get him. You could do that because of the situation even though you don't wanna be in that situation, because it's from bad football play, but to try to fix this thing up. They have so many pics in the next few years, and they felt as if you say good bye to some of those and you go get a new offensive line. Let's hear the Vikings were taken in at 23.

The Titans are on the clock. Pick number 22. We've had some action in this first. Well, we've had some trades of fuel. And as a matter of fact, involving the NFC East, you heard a couple those on the cliffs coming back. And now the Titans. About to make their selections. We get to the bottom of this first round here and, you know, most of the big time stars are off the grid. And now Roger Goodell steps up. To make this Titan speak. Really? You talk about intrigue left. There's still one day and that we thought was gonna get chosen earlier, and it won't go here to Tennessee. Um But there is all still sitting there That is Obama team. I'm like man. There's still that one guy left. I'm either in Minnesota's nude. I'm trying to trade up with Minnesota. But I know Minnesota need the offensive line into shit. That's the one guy we even kind of larger more but a lot more. You could see that here, but, man, um No. Darius was the one guy of all the guys we had were a little surprised that still because you said you'd been looking for my list going who we missing here. Can't Farley rank very high? Let me tell you why I hate Kayla Farley out on on my mind. Listen, he's just now gone, Tonto. Three injuries. I'm just saying, though. I mean, the guy is in the draft, and he's going Ready to go first round. I mean, you still got to give him a little bit of little bit of love him. He's on his back, and they sell in the past. But, yeah, I said that to you earlier here. You gave me that. Same answer right? Soon as we came with you, Caleb Farley's There's my number. 12 guy on my my top. My big board My number three. My number three cornerback. But you know what it takes. It takes a It takes a team like a Tennessee titans. Would a guy like Mike Vrabel to see somebody trashes their treasure? I mean, Wow. Why not? Wait. Take the voiceover guy. A lot of money coming in here unannounced. The pic? Yeah, with the 22nd pick. Tennessee Titans Select Caleb Barley. Cornerback Virginia attack. Is that you doing the voice over me? Is that why you got a little sensitive? If it's me? I could tell you. I didn't get paid a lot of money to do it. That is a fact. I said, there you go. You guys are obviously talking about it, but we have to be official with Farley. And Minnesota's kind of jump all over dollars. So they got to jump all over because they were even talking about guys like that early. You know, up there where they're originally until they trade out with the Jets when they're sitting there, 14. They got to go with a guy like carrots. He been like the last guy. We still haven't are bored, but go back here to Farley. You know, I know you like him. I do, Fucky. You know again. If you were on the team right now, Would you be comfortable with those? Injuries of the sad I'll be worried about the back because twice he's added twice, years should as prematurely shut down his 2019 season And then he had the surgery right before the draft. Um So I won't worry about it. Um, now you picked him. He's a talented player. He's athletic. He terrific instincts and ball skills and those things I don't think he's his fastest. People portray him to be, but I think he is fast enough to make plays on the perimeter. Just, you know. Rupture mile for Elf four times. L one l two twice her needs C 2345 and I still run an 86 40. What about what about if you had to have shoulder surgery on your right throwing on had it left handed? September Would you had labor and two rotator cuff terrorists? You talk about things like, what about just going back to you? Throughout this? We're throwing out critical injuries that could be critical to what your perform. It's is and we had a guy that went well fairly high. You know, like number two overall and had to get his throwing shoulder repaired, so I don't know. Go call me crazy, but I mean, if I'm thinking about a cornerback and it back surgeries versus a quarterback, having to get his Throwing arm reconstructed. I mean, which one is going to be worse. So you got to take a chance. I mean, take a chance on the guy. I mean, he's still playing, right? He just went on the first day too. Right away. Listen, first round pick right there. You went on the first date, So I mean, something happened, right? Even with those back surgeries is all I must say. We shall see just saying, if you don't want you to say what you have won, it made your life was never the same. It just keeps going. Never stand. I could never. I could never stop once Once it happened for me. I just never stopped. It was like all the time for me. I was like, really into it. You guys have no idea what I'm talking about. But I do now you could work with me and figure it out on your own thinking you're talking about back there was a tad bit of comic relief. That's all that was Oh, there you go. We're gonna invade your LeVar wasn't it? But we're not giving you any space. But just because we fear for our jobs. I understand that I have been doing this radio thing for quite some time. Now, though, I do kind of a big deal around here. You gonna be really, really go here with the anchorman? Think? No. No kind of a big deal. Okay, but not so much here many leather bound books and you're known to hang out with you and I am run Bergen. Yeah. Good. Show everyone a good show. Great show. Well done. Well done. Well done. Yeah. There you go. Stake last show tonight if you just turn this on, And if you're you know, somewhere, and you're you didn't know what's gone on tonight. Trevor Laurence, one number one of the Jags. Zach Wilson. The guy that LeVar is talking about the surgery will go to to the Jets. Trey Lance to the 40 Niners. That was the thing that started to stir this draft up a little bit. Pits goes to the Falcons, and then you go down Chase of the Bangles Waddle the Dolphins. You saw some trades there. The Eagles jumped up with the Cowboys. They took Devante Smith, the Heisman winner. And the Bears made the trade. They go up and get that deal with the giant to fullback because they wanted Smith and they were out of luck. And the bears get Justin Fields that the biggest surprising move the biggest move of this first round plays. Yeah, I think without a doubt, I think I'm going all the way up there and getting Justin Fields was the Shake up if you will of this draft without a doubt and again. Everybody had Mack Jones going three. I didn't see it happening. Just want everything else told I didn't see that happened. And I knew that that was going to throw things in flux and going into this draft. About a month ago, people thought there be Five quarterbacks taken in the first eight picks or something along those lines, right And they thought it was gonna go to Atlanta. They thought there's gonna be got one going to Carolina want to Denver and I just didn't see that happening so they didn't slide as much. Maybe I thought they would, but they slid obviously into the middle of the first round. I'm not surprised by and here's the quick reason why I'll tell you I'm not is because you're talking about a team that was really actively pursuing a tray with one Russell Wilson. Think about it. Now you gotta watch now you get and the Shawn watch. But in terms of comparison wise, just I Justin Fields is comparable to the playing style of one. Russell Wilson. Well, the Minnesota Vikings. Yes, pick is in. Finally, Let's hear it. With the 23rd pick. The Minnesota Vikings Select Christian Dara saw Offensive lineman Virginia attack. So just to give you a little basis here. They traded with the Jets. Right, Bucky the Jets go, Allie. Vera Tucker. The Vikings go down quite a ways and they get Paris also who made out better here on this deal. I mean, Very talking is an absolute do Oh, I mean, he's an absolute dude. Yes, he's inside outside versatility. Doing so is the guy I told you, Darren. So is the guy understanding Keep the best. He's the nightclub bouncer was telling, you know, know, Whitey's know Tim's got a get out the club, So he throws about the club all the time, however, Very Tucker's versatility was the deciding factor for me Why you're on Darius..

"A player that you wanted to go get. So let's say like an Elijah Vera Tucker falls into the mid teens, and you're a 23. If you really loved him. What would you be willing to give up to go get a guy like that? Or is this draft deep enough on the offensive line that you still feel like you got a good one? If you set a 23 Yeah, you know, Ordinarily I would want to go up very Tucker's a really interesting player, Bob. But With the death of that position and knowing that I want to get a couple other things as I can in the stress this would private here. I wouldn't want to do that. If I was the Jets knowing that, Hey, there's maybe three offensive line and they're in the next six spots. That's you know, the castle is you have to make on the clock or when it's within striking distance, and my gut would be the state put this year. What do you think the giant stuff? These fascinating, I think, 10 11 12 really interesting, And here's why it's Dallas. It's the Giants and it's Philly to me have very similar needs, and I think they need a pressure plate in the front seven. I think that you use another quarter even though they added a jury.

"I just think they're going offense defense in last year's draft so for our purposes to come down to kyle pits versus justin fields to me. The thing that's complicated about that right is you're saying that they're not gonna go receiver and kyle pits is not really a great blocker and he's probably going to play more accent slot than anything in the nfl. He's just going to be a big tight end. I don't think you know he's not going to me. I don't imagine him doing a lot of traditional tight. End things you know. So if receivers already crowded Then i don't think that that's a picky think value. Is you probably just take him. And figure it out if you're carolina and you move the pieces around because it would be phenomenal gift to to sam darnold. But i'm not. I don't know it's it's an interesting question. I mean you having fields. They're etched in stone already. Just sort of boxes us in a little bit. that's you know. I'm i'm i'm i'm very bothered by this hour annette. I have officially unmatched connor. How about that. He is asked. And you if you're ready to stand on the table for kyle pits. We can We can do it here and i do. Think pits is a better blocker than people. Give him credit for. I think he's so overwhelmingly. Good athletically that. I think that he's not a good blocker. But i think he's a passable and they will be able to play him in line at some point maybe not very early on but Pits versus fields. Will you will you blow this up. Conner will you. Swipe the draft card that was on its way in and replace it with your own. I you know. I i you know i. I don't know. I don't think pits gets this far a. b. I think that the panthers could a lot of help on the offensive line. I mean you have guys like elijah vera tucker christian dera saw you know a lot of these guys that i think might be somewhat interesting and worth mentioning there. Maybe tevin jenkins is a little bit too far down for the conversation here. But i don't know. I like that idea. I mean to me. You're building something and you're trying to make your offense work and you can bump cambering down because you just signed him right now. You're left tackle. 's camera thing you know.

"It's time now for Impact player this week. What with a big fella up front that she left tackle Elijah Vera Tucker. The impact Player of the week brought to you by Mason, Proud Partners of the USC Trojans. Fight on Let's go on. No, No, The impact Player of the week. Time now for impact player this week. I'm going on the offensive line for Elijah. Vera Tucker is off to a great start since moving over to the left tackle position and his final year at USC. Even Elijah first I want to talk about the unit as a whole. How would you assess the over light The overall line play through two games? Flag replying well, so far, definitely some things to improve on like every online. By five million. With the way we knew what the stats these past again, 170 plus rushing yards, which is grass, Azad passing offense, So you know, I think we're playing pretty well so far, obviously, like I said, things that work on, you know onto Eutaw. There were a lot of guys that came back with experience on the offensive line. But some of the pieces have been shuffled around, including yourself. What's the key for? In offensive line T O build That chemistry is as a unit of five. I obviously had no spring ball s, so I was kind of tough, So we kind of came in the fall camp. All I'm kind of new positions. You know, I think it's just It's just really meeting a lot to be honest and just getting the reps and as much as possible, you know, even before fall camp started, some of the guys are meeting together. Going over the place of like that. You know, we're useful, Reese. Diversity and you know, wherever drumming up, says we're going to perform at the highest level s o so far hasn't been a big issue for you. How is the switch to left tackle? Go. I say it's going pretty well so far, obviously always room for improvement. Meeting with Dr No uncertain things, hand placement for work all that we know so far. I think I'm getting used to it. And obviously you have so much experience at the Guard spot. He ever peek over your right and give some advice to the guys hold Daniel position. Oh, yeah. Always you, Nigel worry sometimes asking the questions about it some advice. You know, they they know what they're doing over. There s Oh, yeah. You know, whenever I need to have somebody with the guard position, especially the younger guys, you know, I'll always be there. Be no. So far, everybody as a musician's down a lot of talking in the first two games about short yardage. How do you think you guys need to improve in those situations when you're either on the goal line or 3rd 1/4 and one? Yeah, I think a big part of that is discipline. You know, Right, right hand placement, right head placement. Which for your stepping with you, you're blocking and part of that is also physicality. You know what it's like Short guards when we put our hand of dirt just more people, because that's what online he's due. I've thought we definitely got better at that last week, especially from a tissue, so it's a big improvement. You know, Utah's a physical team, so we definitely got her hand and dirt. You've drawn a lot of praise that I've seen from. You know, the people evaluate offensive lines about returning for your final season and giving yourself a chance to show scouts which you could do it tackle. How do you feel about your decision? I mean, obviously opted out and then decided not back in. Yeah, I feel great about my decision. You know, it's great to be back with the team. I love my team of my brother's love with coaches and all that. But to be honest, I'm just happy to be back to compete. I'm a competitor, so I love to do you know whether I came back? I guard tackle or even center. You know, I was gonna compete. I think so far. It's just been a great experience for me. Well, this is always a fun one to compete in the line of scrimmage. We know Utah is a physical team. What do you look forward to? When when you play against a team that that likes to battle in the trenches with you? Yeah. No. Yeah, We've been talking about all week. So far as online. You know, we know their physical team. We know every time you was, she plays Utah. More like more than likely. It's going to be most physical game We played And you know being able to do that at Utah Bicycle Stadium, No fans, and I really doesn't matter. I think it's again 40 degree weather to s. Oh, yes, you find is gonna be exciting and we no, like I said, we know what type of team they are. So we're definitely coming to practice sleep with a Different chip on our shoulder. You're at least a bake it not gonna soak out, kid. You okay with the cold weather game? Yeah. I mean, I played in, I guess like 50 degree weather, but I know when you go out there is like 40 years 30 with cold with everything's kind of different, But like I said, it would be fun last one. You know how much film study would you like to do on your opponent that you obviously won't be doing this week? Because you just have no idea, nor do any of us what Utah's personnel is. They change so much, and then we don't know who's healthy and who's not. Yeah, well, like you said, I mean, maybe there's somebody cover cases where we really don't even know who will be out there. Um, starting, but I mean, really doesn't matter. Does anybody out there? You know what I had in the dirt, you know, go full speed. Um, you know, we're kind of uses by now. We would have no film on as you or Arizona s O is basically just like another week for us, and you know, we should go out there, right? But all right, well, it's gonna be a big man's game. We know that. That's why I was talking to us. His best big man, Elijah Vera Tucker, this week's impact player. Thanks a beauty. Thank you. What an impressive start to the season for a lie. Shahira Tucker and Sean think everyone very thankful that he opted back in not sure whether it's offensive line would would be without him. But he has been fantastic in the line improved last week, zero sacks, but still some interior pressure issues that we looked at. I mean, really remarkable from a B T to go from from guard to tackle with that much success and how he's done it so quickly to pick up that position. It's like the hardest position, maybe in football to play left tackle and stop the best pass rusher. Another team and just to pick it up so quickly is just Speaks a lot toe. You know, the kind of player is anything is making himself a lot of money. I think by moving garden attacks Will you come back? I think I think you're looking at a first round draft pick right now to like his buddy Austin Jackson, who's starting for the Miami Dolphins. Very good Dolphins team. He should be in the playoffs, so I thought a cool moment Clay held in the showed it earlier this week in anything I did with him. He showed it off and I thought was cool if you go back and watch the game winning touchdown, devise Run into the end zone. Andrew Vorhees makes a great hustle, play Max and basically clears out three dudes at the end and pushed divide into the end zone. We credit of of I He didn't reach out. They didn't make the mistaking me in week one. But the reason he got in is because his buddy came up on basically carried him in and that's a nice moment for an offensive lineman, and I'm sure went over well with the team. Into guys that have been in the program for a very long time. And when you mentioned those players, I think that's a common thing with this entire roster as you see glimpses of elite level play and stretching to get to the second level, and that Dr specifically just marching all the way down and punching it in. It's like, you know, it's there. It's just a matter of tapping into it. Every single time and for me walking into this season, one of the biggest questions was the tackle. Spot, both right and left tackle. You got two former guards. How do they transition? It's not a concern for me and week three. The concern is now into your wise. Those guys need to take a step up and you better believe that's a challenge. That's that's the message this week in the locker room. I've been in that locker room before. When it's Utah Week. You're pointing straight at the defensive tackles and the offensive guard saying it's your time to win to win this ball game. Big man's game Trojans might get a boost in the interior bread Neilan, I think, pushing the to get back into the lineup tonight..

Happy for him. I feel like we alluded to it in his interview. He's kind of Ah, run blocking tight, and it feels like that's kind of how he's using this offense. But we know he has a skill we know he has. The talent is that he's the starter in a in a good group for a reason he can. He can catch the ball and great job by keen Slovis, replacing the blitz with the throw as she gets him for a touchdown and Great to see criminal get involved the past game.
