"Now it'd be extraordinary if we had an identikit super bowl but you never know. The browns are amongst those upstart teams. The afc through the bills in the mix. Here as well ravens. Of course chew that. Going to run the chiefs close. We thinks this will be a fascinating battle as well. Because the browns have got so much to be optimistic about a lot of consistency occasional offensively. Of course there is a real belief that baker. Mayfield as tonto cornered. He's never going to be a Tick what back in the nfl. But he feels year on year to have taken significant steps forward to be marshalling aside cyber so much out of that is good enough. He's good enough to get them where they need to get to a defensive span. They've re upped quite significantly in the off season. Flash the cash in the checkbook out to pick up a lot of shiny free agent signings so they had the mostofi stronger on the defensive side of the bull. They are like the cowboys laden with talent. Offensively unlike the cowboys they've got an even stronger offensive line. You would argue one of the best units in the business. so how high yuan. The browns this season in the browns to lay down a marker in week. One against the afc champs. You know just thinking about this week. One games it's like any any week of the nfl season it feels like it's a buffet and you going round and you think oh i love that and you pilot on the plane i want. I want a bit of that and you might see something and you're like no no. I'm going to avoid that. There's not a lot to avoid you. I feel like i'm really piling on my viewing plates. D bring home plate poetry style. You've got a large plate and lodge ladle jet. If go get go to bring a. I do love a buffet. One of the downsides of covert is the you know they've not been buffets going on anyway the browns. I am high on them. I'm high on them to really really push the chiefs. Really push them in this game on in this in this game and and over the course of the season. The browns are legit playoff team. They are one of the. Let's say one of the four best teams in the afc. Which i think is is a big compliment because the afc is laden with fantastic teams. I don't think this is a game. They're going to win. I what they need to do. And i know that there's they won't feel like there's a moral victory. They've got to keep this close. And that sounds like damning with faint praise and the thing that worries me is games last season a couple where they played a team that made the playoffs. Now i should say the browns were think four and three against teams that made the playoffs. Been a couple of those games against playoff teams. They got blown away like by thirty points. And if teams that make. The playoffs don't tend to lose multiple games by thirty points. I think as long as they keep this close because this is this is the toughest game of the season. I think you get this one out of the way and keep building. I expect it to be close. And i really. The browns will fun to watch last season. And they've they have improved. They've improved a lot. We'll see if bakeries taking the next step. I think the frazier used about good. Enough is exactly right. He doesn't need to be patrick mahomes. he's just got to be good enough and when the time has come. He has been good enough over the past year. Expectations have now been raised. Good enough won't just be you know making the playoffs. Now good enough. We'll be making the afc championship game. Which is still a tall order. Because of the talents there is on other teams. I think the chiefs are gonna win this one. I think the browns are going to push them and give them as much as they can handle and it might be. We come out of that game. Even if the chiefs win asking more questions about kansas city than about cleveland. We feel okay. Cleveland of showing that credentials and we can see what they're capable of. And maybe we'll see the. The chiefs aren't as aunt as obvious a nailed on favorites. Win the nfc. Tell us about greg news. First round pick. Greg newsom as i was. I wasn't surprised that they picked him when i was doing. When i was doing some mocks he was someone who had mocked to to them he is he is fast. Is the way that what you tend to see when it comes to. His speed is not just the speed with his legs but the speed with his arms. So they'll be they'll be points in this game where you will. You'll see in break-up passes or potentially make an interception and the swiftness with how he how he moves his arms to get them to get in position. Might sound like a crazy thing but trust me when you watch the replace. You'll you'll see what i mean. He's a great cover corner. He is aggressive. He hits hard he makes place. And i think he's i think he's going to be really really good. I think they got great value. Getting him at twenty six a. They've really tightened up. Secretary coast troy hill. john johnson. From the rams. We were chatting about the rams with greg earlier in the week. Oh shut that. If you haven't already is sitting there in the volt. Greg rosenthal high up the rams discussing the impact that losing those two place in particular and michael brokers as well defensive or the rams is gonna and greg's augie while it's such a well run and defined identity within that team that they'll survive and that could play his they'll survive it but within that. We're discussing johnson's role within the rams defensive leader and play caller adding again to me another very important larry into this rebooted. All new cleveland browns. This is everywhere you look. This feels like a championship contender if you look at the coaching if you look at the leadership that they have now on on both sides of the ball the maturity. The upside odell beckham most notably springs time. I don't know that people are still pouring scoring. on and joking beckham's gonna have a variety of another abject season but that i have been Playing this record a few times on the show the off season. Ben is you know. But i would not surprise me. Tool beckham as a comeback season. Eleven hundred yards at eight nine touchdowns right so does a huge amount of upside here tough and you make a great point. When they got blown out season. Pittsburgh bloom out of the water. They gave up a huge amount of points of course in second game against baltimore although they ran him. Close the season opener against baltimore. Another game. eight six to smashed out so they wanna try and avoid that although in the end it didn't affect them as a playoff team season but it might have had more significant psychological impact. It's that opportunities in. Afc winning contender. What about the chiefs. The line of course was where they looked to concentrate on off the getting manhandled in the super bowl and lots of reasons why that happened and lots of reasons why there was such a change in discord within that particular unit for the chiefs nevertheless that is what they've completely keyed in on. Have they done enough..

"Heads off and you want guys to be Just aggressive and attack mode in. He's very football guy. Wearing teddy said he drinks like eight shots of espresso every morning. That's his coffee order All that stuff. it's fun it's entertaining having with the media but it can go south real quick if you are if your team's not winning and i think the team likes. I don't think this is the same culture yet that that matt patricia had where there was a lot of bad relationships with players in the head coach would j. Just don't think you can have but it will always be interesting to see how the team responds when things get rough because things will get rough for the lines at some point this year. Now i expect a lot more effort. Compared to some of those Patricia days in so those games that they lost. But that's really what you're looking for. I think if you're the if you're running the lions is you're looking to see what kind of effort guys are putting out if guys do enjoy are happy if guys are wanting to play for this coach because that's the biggest thing similar to the jets figure out what you have something or not in your head coach. So for the niners. My big question for this team is how long is the leash on jimmy garoppolo if he if he wins games you'll stay the starter They're running football team. That can win with jimmy garoppolo but losses start to stack. How many does it take till shanahan pulls the plug in puts in trae lance said. We'll see At some points but that is going to be very interesting to check out. The browns at chiefs is going to be one of the best games of the entire slates. My favorite game are minus six at home over under fifty four and a half the browns. They're trying to get revenge from last year's. Afc playoff game. The chiefs are looking revamped focused. They're pissed off which is just a scary sight on. And i think it's going to be a high scoring affair. Now we'll really see how solidified the chiefs align got this off season when now they're going up against myles garrett and jeevan cloudy we'll see what he has and the rest of that defensive front but i'm really excited to see greg newsom alongside denzel war dens award. I think that can be a lethal cornerback. To and they're gonna be up to the test against tyreek hill and those guys might be a little bit of surprise but gimme the browns plus six. I think the game will be close to that. Not sure if they win they can win. They showed they can win. Thirteen got better this off season. They want revenge for how that game unfolded. 'cause they really really could be in the chiefs in the puff game if they don't fumble out of the back of the end zone and that's what seven fourteen point swing when you look at it so give me the over fifty four. The browns post six really. I just can't watch this game and not root for points. But i think the browns keep a close enough. My question for the browns can't oto beckham junior. Look like odell beckham junior. We know the running game will will be there. We know the offensive line is there. We know the defense what the defense can provide. but where is odell beckham. Junior gonna be at come week seven week eight. Can you stay healthy. Can you produce like he used to. I think so. I want been wanting it. And that's what i think is really the key for this offense in for this team to go really far in the playoffs for the chiefs. My question is is the o line really improved added orlando brown you adage oath unni guess some inexperience on the other side of the of the offensive line with creed humphry tackle that they drafted. In the second round they raved about him thus far. But not many more questions other than that align and i think align is going to be.

"Playing and he's not holding in and all of that sort of stuff. You know incredible. Show i love joe haden. I love the back end of the defense of him. Their nausea. i mean. There's there's many ways that you can massage this to say the steelers are gonna win the division. But i still think it's the browns. I am not going to sit here and say it's the browns bringing the browns are always going to be the browns. That's over how does that sound right. Say the i. I declare that over. It's just anybody. The browns are just going to be. The browns is a new another way for people to say. I don't believe in baker mayfield. That's it. that's the way. I'm putting it whether you think he's was never worthy of the first overall pick or you think he's too brash. Or he's wearing his hat a certain way or all that stupid stance and all that crap too many commercial or the way i look at it was previously too many turnovers too many And he had the wrong guy who drafted him and he had the wrong guy who then took over for that guy then he got the right guy and we saw what happened last year. And he's got the right defense and he's got the running game and he's got the right protection scheme it's all right. They've got it right and the draft is supposedly deep.

"Stewing. But i'm going with the browns here. I think they have one of the most complete rosters in the game. I think i'm betting a little bit on baker looking in that offense similar to the way he looked in the last half of the season last year. But even if it's not quite that. I think what they've done on defense over the past off season puts them in position where he doesn't quite need to win them games. They're going to be so balanced. That i just think if this team weren't the browns because as much as they've improved in terms of kind of trustworthiness over the last few years i think there is still this tendency to be like an part of. It's the history of the team part of it's also baker. Just go like cleveland. But i think if this were like a blind taste test we would look at this go. This is just an incredible roster. This is a super bowl contending roster and i'm just going for it fortune favors the brave nora lack. Afc north. yeah. I love the roster but as i've talked about right i always liked to see it before i believe in it. Especially when there's so much newness. I was just writing about cloudy. And what he means to that defense and game last year ben zolak race that once again in a game the pittsburgh steelers simply forgot the rules of the sport of football which was awesome. It was great. I made my younger brother put his first ever sports betting on that game and he hit six hundred one parlay on that game. It was one of the best viewing experience these nineteen now. Okay honestly obviously we did it through a state where fans sportsbook is legal and went to a fan duel sportsbook. We both way. it's great. Yeah it was my thing with the browns also is this In terms of of teams. That i expect to be in the playoffs On their schedule they have the ravens honesty. They split them home in a way. But they also have the chiefs The chargers the patriots and the packers. All four of those games are on the road. They play their their toughest parts of the schedule away from home so it's one thing to be a good team. It's the thing to be a good team that travels especially when a young team travels. There's you know habits that you wanna set up in preparation and and and Kind of that big boy veteran presence and they certainly have some of those guys. But it's a week longer season they're gonna be on the road against the toughest opponents. I think that they don't catches many wins in the regular season. I think they're very good team. But i don't think they'd be baltimore so i have the rams at the top of the division and it's because even if you look at the ravens roster and it doesn't seem as strong as the browns. There's that proven success with the head coach with the defensive coordinator who hasn't left by multiple years of success with with quarterback is played an mvp levels. They've gone to the playoffs in three consecutive seasons. Now that's the sort of consistency. That i i wanna believe in and i think that the rams are gonna be able to the browns out in the division accordingly. How much does the dobbins injury or. How much did that sort of. Change your outlook for them. It certainly does and talked to him. My concerns with being thin and offense in general both rashad bateman and miles. Boykin i wanna say went on. I r recently this week so early in the season like i do not expect them to hang with kansas city league to like. I think it's gonna be tough game. That plane off the ground a little bit. But i have faith in them. Having always employed committee backfield to find answers even without dobbins there. And i do like us edwards for what he is and so it. It gives you pause because they're thinner. But i still think when they put their best eleven out there. They're going to run the football anybody. Okay i'm gonna go. I'm gonna go browns to really good teams. I think that what swung it to me. Was this offseason andrew berry. I think eric the top five journal manager in this league. top ten But what's one to me was that it is clear to me that andrew berry is going to fill the gaps that are needed to be built. And whether that's in the secondary whether that's something as simple as agassi grant elba was out for all last year he's coming back healthy within going out and signing what might have been the best slot cornerback in the nfl Making the draft picks they needed to make back their Some greg newsom. Playing cornerback I think that joe troy hill. It was a great value signing. I think that everything that they did solve their problems. I who they're going to be better this year because of it baker mayfield is not as good. A quarterback is lamar jax now biggest quickly close but i think over seventeen games that roster so talented That i think that the they're both going to the kind of the thirteen fourteen when kind of thing. It's gonna come down to a half football or quarter football a couple of drops. But if i had to guess right. Now i'm going cleveland And i think ben. I know that sounds crazy. You said the success over the past three years if they've had and the coaching stability and the just the program that they run their. And i'm probably going to regret saying this. But i'm going to say it anyway. Good i think. Kevin's defence can andrew barrier building. A program that gives them that sort of stability.

"The cleveland though for two off seasons. Now all we've heard from browns players is that joe woods the hardest working coach. They've ever been around and how he's helped them improve everyone's technique. He's just he's intricate and his teachings and the good news is. Aj berry went out and got him some dogs this off season and you factor in the improved health. That's going to be huge. Because if you look at joe woods can actually run the defense. You wanna run last year and even without this like year one progression and i know a lot of people aren't really thinking of joe woods in the light that i am because we didn't see the efficiency number increase year over year but if you dig into some of the concepts you can see how good joe was was. The browns had the most injured secondary in the nfl by a mile right. The secondary alone had triple the games lost than the nfl average and yet the browns were the fourth best team in the league. Stopping opposing team's number. One wide receivers. It tells you it's a really good scheme to mask. Injuries in the secondary. Joe was forced to use a lot of cover three. He couldn't be versatile and give offense is different looks. He couldn't expose the secondary so only blitz twenty one percent of snaps third lowest rate in the league. i am hearing with nine new projected defensive. Starters not only have the jimmy's and joe's improve but expect a scheme upgrade of xs and os. You know he wants to move guys around more in the front seventies talk specifically about moving myles garrett and clowney around to create matchup problems from what my sources are saying. There's been a huge uptick in man coverage in the secondary this camp. Well cleveland is going to make a massive leap no no bones about it and joe would second season. They finished twenty fifth and defensive efficiency a season ago. Expect this to be at least on average defense. At least the browns play bottom ten schedule of offenses. If you told me they fight to be a top ten defense this year. I probably wouldn't argue with you. But i do think they get to that average mark. I really do the seven most expensive free agent editions. This offseason we're all defense. And then the first two picks in the draft both events john johnson troy hill came over from an elite ram secondary. Last season johnson. One of the premier free safeties in the league does a fantastic job. Negating big place. Clowney jackson in mckinley is a nice way to upgrade. Defensive line affordably. They all kind of having attribute that didn't allow them to sign for massive money whether it's a specific skill set or age but they're great value signings whether it's a healthier greedy williams or the first round pick greg newsom. There's now someone to pair opposite denzel ward and that's important because again. The browns did very well against number one receivers. But if you look number. Two receivers perform better than expectation and the other ancillary weapons to horst the browns secondary receivers that were not number ones or twos perform. Twenty percent better than expectation against the browns secondary last season. It just tells you they didn't have the dogs past denzel ward linebacker was upgraded with anthony walker. Jay okay walker had a better coverage grade than darius leonard last year j. o. k. was fantastic and coverages final season at notre dame and i think he provides a real nice speed element which comes in handy when you have to face a guy like lamar jackson twice a season so from a talent perspective from an x.'s and o.'s perspective from joe woods can actually put out there to opposing offenses each week. Everything's going improve for this unit. Fat last thing with the cleveland browns and you mentioned off the top their win total from nine and a half taking up to ten. And a half. With all the hype. Does everything that we've seen. As far as them upgrading. The overall talent level on their roster. Do you feel the market is accurately reflecting how good this team can be or do you think they're still under selling them a little bit. I think it's probably right on par right now nine and a half for a team that was supposed to win seven point seven last year and then you add an extra game but we think it's year two. That was probably a little light. But i think you are looking at ten and a half as the right number at this point. It's really interesting. I think we talked a little bit about this off air not specific to the browns but in general when we decided do thirteen. Preseason podcasts and i looked at the number of futures we had bet last year. I kind of said. Hey you know what. We might not have a problem. Getting to ten or eleven. Best bets in the thirteen podcasts. And then yesterday had a chance to speak with some of my guys and in a couple of guys that we share information from from other groups. And it's like down. The market has priced. Pretty damn. well this offseason. There is not a ton of futures that we love. And i think it partly goes into what you sat and i'll let you expound on that a little bit more but basically it was. These futures are getting released earlier and earlier guys that are sharp but not betting lot are touching them earlier and earlier in its allowing books that once they increase their limits. And you're in the middle of july in late july and even early august even though were more than a month out from the season. The market's still price pretty well right now. Yeah i mean. I think it's a trend. We're seeing across all sports. It's kind of that. Golden age for that nickel or dime better. Who doesn't have to try and move. Large sums of money on these can do his or her homework well in advance and get down on win. Totals division futures game of the year prices early on get the best of it and you know what do a lot of the research and development For bookmakers out there who value their opinions allow the markets to be shaped before some of the heavy hitters. The guys that you work with wanna move substantial sums have a chance to really pick apart what we would have defined as immature pricing market. Two years ago. I mean pain i think back roughly ten years give or take a year to my time behind the counter and how late we were putting up. Nfl win totals at caesar's. Let's call it late. July early august maybe to be generous. And you would still see volatile swings moves for one one and a half games in some instances because it was a market. That wasn't talked about a ton it wasn't picked over and i think that's just what all of us have to deal with with the ongoing evolution for sports betting. That if you wanna cut yourself into a million pieces you want a handicap. All the sports that are out there. You're not going to be able to get some of the best value especially some of the high level markets for the nfl nba win totals. Whatever else will tickle your fancy in terms of trying to diversify that portfolio and it's also the ultimate win win. I sports books weakened. Put these lines out three months earlier. Pick up all the media and news and marketing coverage we can and we can allow that five hundred thousand dollar better to do our work for us and that's a effectively. What's happened here as as the new market has come to light over the next over the last few seasons rather i sure and it'll be real interesting not to go too far off on the tangent that we started to see what the evolution looks like and hall of that goes. But it's one of the things that i was taught when i was coming up through the industry that hey you can set a number. You can have a strong opinion but all it takes is one back to to move that particular price especially if it's evaluate opinion and that's what it should be more of a cat and mouse now. We can nitpick in terms of limits. And if it's three hundred dollars that should do that or obviously a couple of dimes at least given one of my experiences about ten days ago to better win total but hey look that's the world we live in and all of us are going to have to evolve in die regardless of what side of the counter were on ultimately. I think we just are hoping as professional sports bettors.

"The browns offense was hovering around the top five. And that's all with the brand new coach scheme and a shortened offseason. And now you look ahead and it's like what don't you like offensively. It's the most expensive offense in the nfl. And that's really something to say because baker mayfield's dylan's work deal so andrew berry. The browns jammie basically has done something every quarterback would die for. And that's just a support system right. And now you get a full off season learning more of kevin's to fancies offense. This is a big year for baker. And it'll be interesting to gauge because the difficulty of passing defense cleveland faces improves from third worst to above average. The pretty big jump but what is interesting. Is the schedule of run defenses declines. It was it's the fourth easiest and we know. Stefanski has no problem running to set up play action but when you look at some of the metrics it's like hey maybe we have baker pass a little bit more on first down is really good doing that. Let's enhance that rape. But when you look at the schedule of increased passing defenses but substantially worst run defense schedule. Let's see how this shakes out but from betting perspective. What's so interesting and and really telling and we try to emphasize this prior to the start of every season. We do so with some of these podcasts and todd you kind of grazed over it a little bit but we talk about python. Occasionally expected wins. And if you look at cleveland they were supposed to win. Seven point seven games last season but won eleven so a lot of luck writes some fortune was on their side. she would immediately think regression. But it's been the opposite pro betters of bought cleveland this offseason. It's why the wind total's gone from nine and a half to ten and a half. Some places generally speaking when you and i talked pie tag and fumble aachen field goal while it's important. It's really the icing on the cake. Right in sprinkles. Maybe you're not basing future investments on only that it's nice to have in the back pocket but scheme in roster in fit and injuries in schedule in obviously in a market price relative to that market. Those are still things that matter most. So it's why. Cleveland is being bought from professionals this season. And it's not necessarily as easy as saying. Hey they should have won four less games last year. They were super lucky. I'm gonna fade the browns. So it's really an interesting team from that perspective when you look at the browns. I mean we talk. Obviously a great lengths about nick chub and what he means to the running attack we know what baker mayfield. You highlighted some of those numbers and i think. He was kind of eye-popping when i see what he put together over the final ten regular season games only two interceptions to sixteen touchdowns in nearly twenty five hundred yards passing. The browns receiving core gets healthy return of odell beckham junior. And you never wanna go. Hey look the team's going to get worse when you add a superstar to the mix but pain when you try and break down the browns passing attack. Do you feel. There's a little bit of a disconnect as far as bakers relationship with odell and maybe getting a guy like donovan people's jones to emerge emerges a true number. Three can help a little bit more because the numbers haven't been great when baker mayfield tries to connect with odell and that's part of the reason we've seen his productivity really declined precipitously since he left new york. I don't know if you've got this memo. But you're not allowed to talk about donovan. People's jones on this podcast. He and devon bush. Burn the florida state seminoles and they were package deal and ultimately chose michigan. So you're not allowed to mention on the podcast but to your point. Yeah mark in that down. That i got a long list. Now that's like the seven thousand four hundred and thirty second thing. I can't say in the pocket so imagine it to the list obi jay and baker mayfield have a fantastic relationship. So let's not skew that for the listeners. They love each other. They hang out off the field and it's almost like that. Friendship is so deep that when they get on the field baker feels like he has to force it to get oh. Bj involved and they just have not been on the same page. But what's really interesting is a guy. That i've been clamoring for is higgins right all lady y- they seem to have this report that just fantastic so if you look at a guy like higgins. I mean last year when baker mayfield threw him the ball. It was like twenty. Nine percent above expectation is fantastic. You mentioned donovan. People's jones now it was a very limited amount of targets and reps puts like he was also last year when baker targeted. I'm like fifty two percent above expectation. And then you kind of get down to odell beckham junior and well you know. His season was short-lived after leaving with injury it was like nine percent below expectation when throwing to odell beckham junior so that has to get figured out. No doubt about it defensively when you look at what this team did. A lot of fresh faces out there. They add the likes of debbie. Clowney me jackson reunited with his former defensive coordinator in denver tack mckinley. That trio all comes in on one year deals. You go out there. And you get tandem of defensive backs from the rams in troy hill and john johnson. Greg newsom a first round. Pick out of north western. You take talented linebacker out of notre dame in jeremiah. Lucy core amoah anthony walker a tackling machine from the colts. These guys are all very productive. There are a lot of the high profile names that are out there. You mentioned andrew berry. And i've always sat there and tried to go. I have no idea how this team has had as much cap space as they've had over the last couple of years to to bring in a lot of these guys but when you look at this browns defense and that's not even mentioning the likes of green williams and grant delpit who should be healthier as well. Can this defense. In european take all of these disparate players that have accomplished a lot and other destinations blend them all together and turn them into an elite stop unit that really was lacking a season ago but to the browns credit at least they solidified their run defense. They were just in the defensive backfield. I love joe woods and we praised him last offseason when he was hired and i'll be honest within sharp circles in some coaching trees. People felt like joe woods played a larger role in the forty niners. Defensive success than robert salah and i think we kind of discussed the metrics last year. But i'll go from again. 'cause the really important but with the forty niners joe woods improved their defense pass efficiency from twenty seventh to second in two thousand nineteen when they made their super bowl run. Joe woods also ran the broncos defense in seventeen and eighteen. They finished tenth and fifth and defensive efficiency..

Who's gonna win. You teddy have heard much doing anything in camp. But i mean we haven't heard much of anything over there. We know how superb per your secondary on difference. We know how great they look. But we wanna see more. We need to see more. You gotta prove it to. It's gotta show gotta tell us what we're looking at here okay. had the backups. Though don't don't get your People hurt i mean as right now impacts retain the second is literally a sacred stream. But he's a rookie. So put him in there. We want to see him Some stuff down which pretty sure. He will be very exciting to watch. So that's something you guys want to. Now minnesota vikings on the other hand minnesota. Vikings got somebody. I just can't wait to see do something illegal. And i'm not saying successful and i mean of course. I want to see everybody sensible. But i want to see what it's capable of on this level are killing mind. Please come to the from. The congregation are a kirk cousins on honestly killing run the whole game. I know it's not possible We got put jake browning in there. A little bit for sure may moon innate stanley but give elise cake killing a half all right. Let's get them half was he was possible. See would what he does with the ball man everybody else on offense. I mean community secondary. Really run with the twos. We could see if somebody in that Group really makes a name for themselves Definitely important that you guys keep an eye on your offensive line and make sure that these guys are ready to go christian. Dora saw i don't know if he's going to be starting or not but We wanna make sure he's ready on that next level Goto society's ball yeah One of the cases where you can rotate your second. And third especially for his first game really just see where they are at In i dream as we get into games. Three and four okay of the preseason next match-up six pm central standard time at ti. A bank field in jacksonville florida. As seven degrees fahrenheit the browns versus the jaguars okay brown's versus the jaguars in boy. Do we know what we're supposed to get coming out of this now. Please be advised that trae Harbison running back. For the cleveland browns on injury reserve and daniel thomas to safety for the jacksonville jaguars will be out for sure. But a we know what the browns have started. We know. i'm talking about across the board from the quarterback to the safeties. We know what you guys going on. Every position don't start any stars. Our star at their kingsgate matter of fact case keenum. That'd be jogging on the field with kareem hunt down people's jones anthony schwartz which hell it still solid very solid. But we want to see what they matter of fact. I am corrine hood. Don't put him out there. Put the ernest johnson out there running back but yet they put all extreme receivers out there. I wanna make sure they are capable of your same thing with defense joe jackson jordan elliott tommy. Toga jacob phillips greg. Newsom greg newsom you guys get out there you agree with him need to rotate when you see what's going on that Troy hill when he'd see was that don't put it into award out there but it might switch troy here with some aj green than brown. We need to make sure to debt is looking as good as it really is because i mean it could be illusion. That's the catch because it all illusion so We need answers. And that's what the preseason is all about is getting some maybe now full professors but at least enough information for us to take in note you guys are going to be able to use for future days to come next. Ooh is the jacksonville jaguars. I'm talking about the fresh baby. Jags baby jags in the building We trevor lawrence gang We got to see everybody. Trevor you gotta be out there. I'm sorry yes you knew you. You've been injured in the past. We gotta make sure he got which guy make sure you can read it. Coach probably should be working for at least a half yeah Have in the first. Two games may be quarters. Maybe see you rent some fourth quarters in the last. Two games drivers. Eta wanna see you catch. The ball wants to see him. Run the ball. Along with james robinson. gardner mint you. Who says he's not giving up on this position so wanna see him. Put up a good fight for on a defensive side Rotate really twos in threes starts breaking in your wines in later games. I think that's the best for them. So we should see Some sidney jones the fourth andre cisco rudy ford Dakota allen remember dakota allen One of them in their seaweeds. Cable of damian wilson in company In then for the jets and giants game And giants man. New york's going to go crazy but a the games in new jersey though guys didn't know that Metlife stadium yes in east rumford new jersey Looking at about eighty five degrees thunderstorm have around that time again. This time is going to be at six thirty. Pm central standard time. Saturday august fourteenth. All right the jets versus the giants. The new york game of the night are looking at those individuals man. Those two teams on the. I r for both. We have ten ten solitaire online for the jets will be on. I are and then we have levine. Toilet low The in for the giants okay. There's only two individuals. You guys missed out on scene in action now. The jets is another team. That has a rookie quarterback. So guess what. I'm going to give the same advice even those jet That i just gave about what we need to see you from The rookie in jacksonville. So when he say at least a full half maybe the first half and in may in the first game second half second game and then maybe fourth quarter runs For last to donate to put him out there too long for them to get hurt. Don't do that zach wilson when. He'd see that. Tom feel mike. White's time james morgan. A maybe even josh johnson..

"Smith age twenty two running back mile sanders. Twenty four leased the backfield for the guys in. You know he's definitely somebody would see more from as well so when it comes to all of these skill players all of these young guys. That's great you got the bodies but now you gotta get the you know. Get them up to speed number. Twenty four belongs to the green bay packers just last year in twenty twenty on this list. They were number twenty two so not too far from where they were But yes blue. Chip players cornerback. Zaire alexander strong safety darnell savage quarterback jordan love obviously for the feature notable graduated players. Guard ellen jenkins Air alexander gyro. Y hobby are goodness. Gracious gyro zander's steel just twenty four years old and the best young cornerback. In game last year he ranked second in yards allowed per pass target in third in coverage success rate. He is joined in the secondary by strong safety. Dardanelles savage who is also twenty four years old. Who is a force against. The run in also was the top five for safety's with twelve past deficient Deflections last season this spring. The packers added twenty two year. Old cornerback eric. Stokes got eric stokes in the draft To the secondary with their first round pick which makes their their secondary pretty much top two. I think denver might still have them be but it definitely brings them into the conversation On offense twenty-three-year-old running back. Aj dylan could be more help. Could be more interest. You know we'll cia. Switches out with aaron. I mean in the time that he's been here. He had fifty five point three yards per carry a limited time last season so We'll get a look and in you know twenty two year old quarterback prospect jalen Jordan love around. They're just kinda waiting for his turn. But i think we know a little bit about him in. Hopefully he will transition welcome like aaron did when he got out there number. Twenty three goes to detroit lions. They were ranked Twenty five last season this season of their blue chip players are tj hopkinson. A guard john. New jackson cornerback. Jeff aku and offense attack opini so People graduated. Were frank reagan now. The center in cornerback amani or To say oh Because that's a tough one. On the young talented detroit is built around the straight top eight draft selections Pretty much coming in at number. Two with cleveland browns Their number nine just last year. So you see the difference. Blue chip players offers a tackle jericho. Wilson cornerback dinsdale ward cornerback. Greg newsom notable players that just graduated from it edge rusher myles garrett in running back nick. Chobe cleveland ranks a bit lower than you might have expected because injuries have kept them from seeing kept us off from seeing What some of the young players can actually do For example twenty two year old safety grant delete a missed his entire rookie season with a torn. Achilles cornerback greedy williams. Twenty three years old missed all of last year with a nerve issue in his shoulder and twenty four year old dunes award has been off. One of the top quarterbacks in the league win healthy he ranked seventh in yards allowed per pass target last season he also started only twelve games in each of his three seasons. He's clearly missed. Some games The young talent on the defense continues with twenty one year old First round pick rookie corner of greg. Newsome who will compete with williams for that right corner starting position Second round rookie linebacker. Jeremiah wazoo kamara is also just twenty one in will compete with twenty three year old. Mac wilson for the starting job at weak side linebacker safety. Rodney harrison is twenty. Four has twenty. Nine career starts with both jacksonville and cleveland and There won't even be room for him to be on the starting lineup. So you know. These guys got a lot of competitive juices going on here to wear. You know it's to be tough to win some of these battles Then there's the rising twenty two year old Wide receiver don people's jones who had an outstanding five point. Nine percent receiving delay But that came on a small sample of just twenty pass targets. The browns also expect big things from third round a rookie. Receiver anthony shorts. schwartz But he still needs to develop from track. Start or real. Nfl wide receiver after averaging fewer than forty yards per game at auburn He's got time. So i won't just wait and see what happens with him at number twenty one. We have the atlanta falcons. They were ranked thirty last year. So on the come up. Good for you The blue chips stars a cornerback. Aj terrell guard. Chris lynn storm and of course tied in cow pits who they picked up in the draft. This season That brother is the future in. That's the only reason. They drafted him a so very high draft. Cow pits is only twenty years old and probably is the most valued out of all of these guys The value calculations that start off this rankings are somewhat conservative about rookies because many of them do not have a ton of value in their first season or to For example exceptions for the. You know five first round quarterbacks. None of their none of this year's rookies Come out among the top fifty young assets in the league They really simply don't know what they are going to do yet. Which is fair There's a lot of depends on dependence in that conversation you know So we got to leave it at that But yeah all right. It is now time for our break when we get back. We'll get into the middle group man up and downers the people. That are probably at least predictable. Are i so stay tuned. We'll be right back. Tired of searching the vast jungle of podcasts..

Defensive intact mckinley going to be in the rotation there on the defensive side of the ball. They don't even need him to start. They brought him jackson to start on the defensive line at defensive. Tackle anthony walker linebackers. Well the browns knew what they needed. They didn't need anything on the offensive side of the ball. That thing is pretty much taken care of. It's the defensive side. what did they do the draft. They go and draft a corner and greg newsom would their first pick the second pick second round. They draft a linebacker. They i mean this is just one of those deals where they drafted i think for for need not only that they get back greedy williams by the by the way who didn't hardly played it all last year. They delpit their first round. Pick from last year. Didn't play at all because of injury. Something like this defense is going to be absolutely loaded. It number one ranked offensive line heading into the season. According to pro football focus they return all five starters from a line that ranked number that ranked first in pass blocking great and second run blocking grade last year. Wyatt teller jack. Conklin joel tonio. All these guys just absolute studs. Stephen i love the. I love the browns. I think the rounds take a huge step forward here. I like the browns. This division taught me off of it. I i'm going to have a hard time doing. I mean the obvious. Devil's advocate would the ravens the favorites at plus one fifteen in you are getting plus money on them which is always good in. Preseason futures You know we just talked about the bills at minus one fifty five but there's just a laundry list of reasons to to consider that that minus number value but i generally look for plus money so these divisions where there isn't a favourite over the field Are ones..

"And the ncw will be no more burger. We would not be having this conversation. There was a big twelve network. I guarantee would not be having this conversation. Because that's been the big thing the sec network. Big ten they had their network. Pac twelve has their network and the acc has their network if there was a big twelve network along those lines. Were not having this conversation. Because they're getting those checks that's why rutgers is in the big ten that's why notre dame their their own conference but there's a big twelve network. I don't believe we're having this conversation about texas oklahoma leaving to get more money which they're going to get into the sec. Burger this one for you. There's not a big twelve network but there is a longhorn network. Our know about no lsu tiger network so everything is in fact bigger. The longhorn network is ran by. Espn i know that. And it's so profitable for you and us that you guys are coming to join the sec network. So it's almost like a little and the little brother coming home to where mom and daddy are come on home. Baby wants to make y'all better. Texas wants to make bed we go on and on and on but molly i'll let you go and do what you gotta do. The thanks for being with us wholeness down here and on get up all morning long. Stretch your legs go to eat for lunch. You boys still would make the nfl. Kansas city is once again the favorite to win the afc for the third straight season buffalo and baltimore right behind while the browns come in at fourth making the playoffs for the first time after a seventeen year drought. Here's odell beckham junior on his outlook for the browns the season. This is something that feels special about this team. I watching the championship as far as the moore's building and that's what i want. i like. Oh dell's hair haven't seen him in a minute. L. wants to be a part of something special in cleveland. Freddie are the browns the team best suited to the chiefs in the afc. No i think it's the buffalo bills. Because i wanted. The browns can handle being the hunted because two years ago. And they got all that hype. They did not handle that. Well now. i think they'll be better the now because the chemist the fancy their head. 'cause great job and they've been able to have the right kind of makes a veteran leadership and those guys have grown from two years ago but this buffalo bills team they got a bunch of dudes on defense that. Just get out to the quarterback. They have an underrated secondary and know. The josh sound gets a lot of credit with a wide receiver river bringing emmanuel sanders to help out this football team. So cleveland is terrific. I think cleveland is going to be terrific team. That's a potential eleven to twelve fourteen but in turns of being the best chance to be kansas city. I'm gonna truck. It's the buffalo bills because they're tough. That physical their relentless. That's not the browns are not by just think having that experience of dealing with being the hunted in the afc when people say this will be your division then they went out there and one and then it gave more than a hold of you know what in the first half of the afc championship game. I trusted that. Team can handle being a little bit in cleveland this year and stands the best chance to beat the chiefs in the afc. I mean have. We just forgot completely about the tennessee. Titans maybe maybe we. Maybe some of us needed these stiff-armed videira henry again. Maybe some of us need to go. Try and sack ryan tannehill. Maybe some of us need to go try and cover. Julio jones at aj brown have we completely forgot about the tennessee. Titans who have built a beast out in the afc. Yes i like. The cleveland browns No i don't think they're the hunter just yet. I think Pittsburgh and baltimore may have something to say about that. But tennessee is still tennessee. Derrick henry is still doing derrick henry things. Have we forgotten about the times. I think the tennessee titans are the team. That's best see to compete with the kansas city chiefs in the afc hands down. No questions asked what. Here's the deal with that. And you're right about derrick henry. Because he's going to help. Defense help your quarterback we've seen ryan tannehill getting away from adam gays the kind of efficient quarterback that he can be in that often. I just wanna. Tennessee can get enough defensive. Stop in key situations i trust. The buffalo's defense can do that. I chose the browns defense. Right now can do that. Bene- tennessee titans defense. I wanted the tennessee. Titans because we can see they can win firefights but once in a while you gotta be key style that third and get off the field the ball back to your offense. That's the biggest question of me saying have about the titans defense. I chose the browns defense. A little bit can do that. And i know the bills defense and did a seen that can to see do that. I'll wait and see on that one. We'll freddie i'm with you. So i played in buffalo for the preseason and twenty nineteen before i went to tampa so i've been in that. Descend leslie frazier is a phenomenal defensive coordinator. That defense hunts. that defense can eat. That defense at times has had some weak points. And so i trust cleveland's defense who's building on already a great defense by drafting a god-like greg newsom from north western. I like cleveland's defense. More than i'd like buffalo's defense does. We're talking about really apples. Apples to top tier defenses but tennessee when it comes to trying to compete with kansas city you got to think about it. They're they're building a different animal. Basketball people always talk about small ball. Small ball and i go back to the usa versus france. France wasn't playing small ball. Hats beasts everybody on their team. Six seven one. Six eight six ten. You look at those players. Tennessee is doing something similar. Everyone's looking for the tyreek hills. The speed served darnall moonies. Like you've seen chicago. Tennessee says no. I'm going to get a six foot. Three jordan fifty something powered running back now. I'm going get a big physical quarterback. I'm gonna get a six foot three hundred something pal receiver. Not just one. Let me get to and so. Tennessee is the team. That's best suited to be to be kansas city because they're building a different kind of animal in in the afc. Joe you're showing a lotta love to team france. I mean nigeria. Aren't there like nine. Nba players show some love where the route vote team. France is still absolutely team nigeria. My samuels my first name. But oh yeah the kaci is my middle name so we got people not only in the nba nfl but also on tv. Sat up the managerial brothers and sisters. You guys. I can want to get to bradley. Beal on a potential trade which team should trade for bradley beal right now freddie the new york knicks because they need a suit or and i know our barrett is good and he had a better season rookie season but a difference maker in bradley. Beal you put him on that basketball draft the point guard the draft this thursday and you put them with julius randle and have. Derrick rose off the bench bradley. Beal's that kind of difference maker. He would make the knicks an instant better contender in the eastern conference because his ability to shoot the basketball from the outside. The i don't think bradley beal wants to be a contender bradley. Beal wants to win a championship bradley. Beal needs to go to the los angeles lakers. Obviously you've got lebron james and you've got a magic johnson says on the way you got lebron you got a kouzmines not been anyone. It's hoped that he would be and so now if you get a bradley beal on that team you're winning championship after championship after championship. Yes it's a super team but you're gonna championship and that's all that matters here if you're where would you want to go off. I'm bradley bill where i would want to los angeles to his point but if i'm bradley i think the better path to get a championship is in the eastern conference because the west is still loaded. The east is better but his chance getting an nba files a lot better in the eastern conference than in a load of western conference. Okay i'll leave you with bradley. Beal actually want. I'd wanna stay in washington us. Yeah you just saw jaanus go. You saw go and win a championship homegrown. You saw him not build a super team. I'd rather stay in washington. Tom bradley beal all right fair enough. Pretty common and sam acho. i'm molly camrose. Thank you all for being with us. We will do it again tomorrow same time.

"Come out giving the quarterbacks of were available in in law draft From that perspective guys. Like if the us near greg newsom and you have patrick's attain had jc decay. Cornerback an samuel saunderson is junior. That came out there a few other. You know different quarterbacks to you that i could've seen linked with But you know that sort of where the fell but they do need a cornerback. In next year's draft speeds very still fans. that will be very apprehensive of they. Are you know the steelers draw thing. You know that. That cornerback in the fifth round given what we need in the offense support in the offensive line position positions like quarterback Think cornerback would be there and that signal third around. Maybe third round pending compensatory picks. But let's have a quick will be just job. You know out of alabama six foot one hundred pounds that some physical traits. He's played twenty seven games in his three year. Career at alabama Foreign as a freshman ten is a sophomore fit in his genius. Sixty seven Ninety one total tackles in that time two and a half for loss two sacks. One interception defame pasta fence one fumble recovery to fumbles productive. Playa the at the cornerback. Position in particularly likely when you get the full fumbles is number fifth in the sec in twenty twenty And he was number. One in passes defended the in twenty twenty with eleven pasta fence. That's really strong unit in terms of being able to make plays. And that's again when you look at the physical traits with the tennessee that they talk about josh drivers someone continue to look at. Is we go through. this draw. Process really begins once. The previous draw finishes But hey some really interesting pursue stills fans having money right ours. College starts to develop because the coach season. Because he's someone that you're in really could be a realistic option for the pittsburgh steelers End he someone that is definitely could be on our right up. If he's really sure his out perhaps just perhaps he didn't play with trading to get the fauna player wanted to look at As part of this year projection was applied to play one game. One game in twenty twenty His name is Thin unfamiliar for that right out of the highest state now position in the airline that You know they're predicting a tackle for the steelers. Now he's a haven't really singley to the steelers and their number tackles that i've talked to that ready coming out of his sheep going to be. Unfortunately i don't think we're going to be in the meeks for a guy like evan. Neil year God like obinna as Offensive tackle at a tesa. You could be someone the with the we're looking at their About before nine. A big fan of Those guys are ranked in sort of the top toll. Forty prospects half n This month it's running. That risk is that. I think that could mobile cat. But hey keener same. Unfit is someone that just came across the night overseas playing taught. School uniform comes to the pittsburgh steelers as well as those developmental traits from. I've had a chance to look into much tape yet. But i thought it was noteworthy that they're listed someone like that. When a couple of guys like as in a Months bay available Crew might still be available. Come not third round a think. It's me really interesting. Tim's of i. You could see the steelers up in twenty twenty two hundred that something crazy to say these elements but i do see that being a potential result if the right players are on the board i think we we took the sat back. Sit back and white approach this year. And that made sense. But if you will get the fact that kevin colbert sitter had of being in the war room new killing call. Whether it's all lost. Draw with kevin call there some used to be night. This retooling the needs to happen. And the pittsburgh steelers will need some k- and some k positions whether it's ben's actual loss g or whether it's may ever protect inner mason rudolph from the rookie quarterback the getting around one according to this to the year The pay of produced without that rep steals warm for this week. Are you really enjoyed. The this sort of at playas born in july and then it continued to make sure i keep bit of a birthday theme instead across this ghost and notes obviously be every week bit interesting. How many players have been born july. How many noteworthy clays and even kobe's fringe plays as simple four. We're gonna stay across as prospects.

Last year a linebacker from from tulsa at this point time last year didn't know much about it. Jalen phillips we knew as a big time recruit and ucla ended up at miami. He played as well as any pass rusher in college. Football last year ended up being the eighteenth pick Jason davis was a late riser. Their kentucky go through some of these other names here. T- greg newsom. At northwestern was the twenty six pick peyton turner from houston was a twenty eighth picks. Stokes from georgia was a twenty th. Pick the rest of those guys. I feel like we. You know we knew the opt-out guys with joe try on and jason away but that's a good number of names of guys who i mean you might have known who they were a little bit but we weren't thinking of these guys is first round pick slasher at this time. Now they weren't household names. They weren't stars and dj. I think it continues to speak to what we talked about the pros and cons of being an opt-out. Football is a developmental sport. Where you have to get reps to develop and become a better player. The only way to acquire skills through repetition and so some of these guys who will be viewed as johnny-come-latelies or one year wonders. Were guys who really the light went on. After years of development on the practice field they finally clicked and they started performing at a high level in games. You talked about all of the mag jones guy who he was the backup quarterback behind two guys. That eventually went on to be atop picks before he got his opportunity to be the starting quarterback and when he got his opportunity he took advantage of it I think we go all the way back. Before joe burrow joe burrow was another one. They kind of came out of left field to be the number one overall pick. It is really important for us just because we don't know the names early in the year..

"On right. It'd be interesting to watch if he how he comes back because he missed minicamp in those things only making seven million dollars on the books for the patriots this year at you know the wrong side of thirty and do they get the deal done so he can go back and show people why he was really a defense played year corner. And when i mentioned denzel ward one. When i look at the browns secondary i mean you've got a unit here that is going to contend to be one of the best if not the best from top to bottom in all of football i mean denzel is the headliner for sure and fourth overall. Pick a couple of years ago. Same year that Brownstone baker mayfield number one. Just sign jon. Johnson terrific safety in the league. We still haven't seen grant delpit yet last year. Second round pick You know who was a highly touted safety coming out of lsu. We haven't really seen greedy williams yet. Either he's been banged up was second round pick in two thousand nineteen and then they take greg newsom in the first round this year to go along with troy hill who also came over as a as a nickel corner from the rams And that ronnie harrison played some some good ball for them coming over in a trade from jacksonville. Mj stewart There's also man that's a really good deep group there. I guess. I guess. I mean like i think a lot of that hinges on the type of production we get from those two. Lsu kids and greedy williams and grant who just haven't seen a ton yet from because of injuries now. We haven't seen a a a timeframe yet. They haven't had the opportunity. Really gonna few injuries in those things have kept them from your defense coordinator. Joe would you have to be excited about what you have at your disposal the dream for every defense coordinator to be able to change on a week because you have so much talent and so much i agility within your ranks..

Any linebacker and we're talking about some some pretty good linebackers but figuring out who he is and what he is in year one. I don't know You know. I'm looking at what happened with isaiah simmons and maybe i remember before the draft thinking the same thing that's going to happen with the worst care. Were they gotta figure out what his home basis is like. It's easier to figure out who will. Super bowl is right now. He's a he's a slot. He's one of those star position guys from college. That just has to prove he can be a will is what i think. He is with. Isaiah simmons i truly. You know i didn't see linebacker instincts. I knew that would take a low wild for him to get used to that position. I think a big thing and and this is what we can make. The mistake of doing sometimes will rename evaluation businesses. We love versatility. We love that can do a lot. But there's something to be said for the person at masters the one thing they're asked to do so when i look at him. I just think yes everything that you look for everything that you could possibly want. Vientiane see high plays. Yeah and then I think in terms of impactful rookies on the defensive side. At cornerback position. No there are some really talented guys. I was a huge fan of a passer tan. And then of course. Jc greg newsom caleb farley. We know farley probably will take a little longer to come. You know to get going but when i looked at the top two guys and you see ser tan and jc. Horn i mean right off the bat. Jc horn is has a chance to really make his mark because he's going to be facing off against guys like And not that. He didn't do it in college and actually did a pretty decent job of taking on cockpits. But he's gonna have cal pits to worry about. He's gonna have to calvin ridley to worry about. He's going to have those peace over in tampa bay to worry about. So he's got his hands full over there now if he if he shows out that's rookie of the year type candidates stuff if you're able to really do a nice job because so many people cite these. These advanced statistics from pro football focus and other sites with how guys do against top matchup. So everyone will be aware of a guy like j. c. Hornet ser tan is in denver. We already know. Oakland is Trying to build over there wide receiver. We know what we know a kansas city. Has we know what the chargers have. So those two guys stepped into a tough situation. But that's why you're draft. That's why people covet you inside..
"greg newsom" Discussed on Nickel Package
"And now it's time for dinks and dunks. I'm getting paid for this right now. I'm bringing this one on you. I should've sent it to you beforehand. But i just thought of it before we starting. Nfl they asked us for the most improved position groups in the nfl and we named a few. The one that i ended up talking about was the chargers offensive line potentially being most improved group as wondering you don't have to pick the most improved group. What is a group of players your excited to watch this year because you think they have a chance of being a lot. Better brown secondary. I don't know if you heard the home that you did there. But it was so like deep and like loud and like you always do you do a lotta homes but that was the most m- you've ever done. I've been practicing during the offseason. After i as a regular guest on other podcasts are used to host. Espn daily. i feel like that Is an important part of answering questions at this point breath secondary. Yes that's a good answer. I secondary yes. I feel like it's super high up there. You got hill. And john johnson from the from the rams to above average possibly very good players at us positions of aids. Now you're not relying on greedy williams who has hurt the past couple years pretty consistently You get greg newsom in the first round corner get grant del back from a torn. Achilles and denzel work to me is still a top. Ten cornerback when healthy. So i mean that's a really really exciting group to me to watch. Yeah i agree. I'm also excited to watch the ravens pass catchers by the way we're talking about them and i was just kind of talked a lot about much. I like to rashad bateman from the draft. But yeah. I just think it'll be interesting to see how they're used in that offense and whether these all right we talked about james harden would be if he was an nfl player. You gave a very thoughtful answer. My question for you is a lot of people say any. The nets are so good that anyone coach them and anyone could play with them so which. Nfl player do you think could be the fifth starter on the nets and not embarrass himself. Oh boy again. This is a question. Where if i say the wrong person and an. Nfl player is listening. They're going to get very mad. That i did mention them. Who would be A.

"In instincts To defeat defense. Yeah no one full season. This year was fantastic but it was just that one full season plus couple of games last year. It'll be interesting. It'll be interesting to see where mack jones lands will be interesting to see how he does at the next level. And it's time to take the new england patriots end to the move the sticks bodyshop and buck. This is a car that ran smoothly for about twenty years. Little hiccup gotta get this vehicle back up and running here so we've got some work to do. Yeah we got plenty of work to do. I think when we look at the needs it has to start at the quarterback position We can talk about cam. Newton and those other things. We need quarterback to address when he wide receiver edge. Rusher linebacker in corner. Basically the entire team needs to go and get overall trying to work on that while we haven't body show the body we talk about the engine being the draft. That's how you get this thing really rolling here so for this exercise book. I know we've talked a lot about on the show about maybe moving up potentially for a quarterback. Let's say they can't move up. Let's say the patriots are stuck there at fifteen. What are they. I think they have to address the defensive. Well let's go to cornerback because quarterback is the most important position in this defense. Because they play so much man to man about greg newsom from northwestern and when i look at greg newsom the reason why he really fits in new england. He's a versatile player. This guy they can do anything that you see on the island. He can play bump he can play off zone. He has good instincts in awareness to me. His game screens patriots player. Yeah football smarts that fits right in line with the patriots. Wanna do and somebody that can find the ball very well We to pick forty six again. We haven't able to address the quarterback position and it could fall this way. So let's let's look at some other areas of. Let's go receiver and let's go rondell more who to talk about versatility all the gadget stuff you want to do with him. Fly sweeps you can throw him in the backfield. Just get the ball in his hands in the fun begins and this new england offense has always been at its best. When it's been built inside out join retires buck and we can slide rondell more right in. You know you'd be probably the most dynamic slot receiver that they've had in. Debt is an impressive accomplishment. When you consider wes welker julian element troy brown. He's the most explosive when it comes to his speed quickness bursts he will give them an added dimension on offense for sure i. Can we get a quarterback here. I know we haven't got worse for soviet anybody. Yes so we're gonna take more. We're gonna take cal. Trask with third round. Pick ninety six overall and the reason cal. Trask is a nice fit is because we have seen them operate as a distributor in this office. And we understand. Josh mcdaniels can tweet assistant to make it where it is all about. Getting the ball out led the playmakers. Do the work they upgraded the playmakers around the quarterback with the two tight ends jonnu smith hunter henry some of the weapons on the outside. Nancy you just need a playmaker that can get it to them and let them go. To work of. The couch was certainly fit that role. The little buzz and league circles patriots a lot of homework on contrast all right. Let's get to their last pick here. We're going to do today. Pick number one twenty. And i'm gonna go to south carolina linebacker ernest jones and the first tape. I watched on jones actually was against florida book. He can play on. The line of scrimmage plays over tight ends man. He beat up cockpits pretty good in that game. At the line of scrimmage very physical. He's got stopping power as attack where he hits guys. It is over to me. I think some of that versatility. Some that physicality would it be appreciated by the new england patriots. That's why have ernest jones going to pick one. Twenty one thing you know about the patriots day. Like heavy handed linebackers. They believe that their physical neon toughness gives them an edge over everybody as earns jones. Jane is exactly what the patriots Position there you go. We've got the patriots. Take care of here today and the body shop immediately. Recognize the talent. Love is off the charts to rare rare physical specimen. Sometimes you think. He's supernatural possessive downfield. I did not know that. Justin had a background in baseball. I met at a youth camp. You can see athleticism him early. He was able to move really well plan baseball. He was really fluid motion. He went to the next level in baseball but his heart was set on football. Just to watch him brought back and throw the ball down the field. You had somebody. That's pretty special anytime. You have a quarterback that can throw the ball the way he could. You know that things are in store that delivered was already there. I think he's just match with having a quarterback just fields. You thought outside the box for some. We put in power read. He went sixty yards to the house. It was getting bored highschool. You needed a new challenge at the leap eleven competition for a lot of time with a counselor. This summer at eleven. He's got that if quality either where they'd make everybody around him better his size power output speed and then crops like you. Don't most of those guys butcher have a big machete and they chop up very rarely do find these players. they're also surging spe know how to handle the tiniest tool that can save your life and he really approaches this crap with a burning desire to get that or go to the vcr. Did these very poised very steady. As ronald he six. He's two hundred and twenty five pounds. Smart is really really accurate. Okay coach. that's because this you watch him on tape and you just see this strong powerful light so hard to bring down in the pocket. I was so impressed. Then you get to see him in person he gets to meet him and he's focused and he's determined and he works hard and he comes out here. He competes and you can see why guy like justice was able to play on such a big states wants those moments. It's been an awesome experience for me to be around him to be in the film room to get up on the whiteboard and talk through everything. He's already approaching things like a true professional with his work. ethic is mature he just. It was all business. I mean he just always wanted to continue to get better back an competitively tough guys. I've been around just went through adversity through georgia getting ear changing schools. This is a tough tough guy who has been very dependable for us. Thanks very you're fighting. This is a position where you have to be a tough guy physically and mentally. He's tough man's got all. The different things happening is like these. Adult britain resolve toughness. That i'll stanford right now. He'll be a wild success in the nfl. Because you know the team that gets justin's gonna really like you'd pay through ceiling..
