"Did you always feel that your voice would be welcomed their or wonder what the young nulla hopkinson would have made a someone like yourself back. Then i mean as an icon somebody to look toward for me. That was samuel delaney. Not the first lack region sense fiction but very close to it. I one of the first ones known to be black. I was a bit thick. And i guess part coming from the caribbean where people of color are very much in the majority. There is helary's but It's a different sense of of what's possible and grew middle-class so again there's a sense of if i get too particular place at probably belonged there so i didn't have that same sort of reticence to to go into a place that i submitted belonging when it occurred to me to think about recent sense fictions when i stumbled across i was reading. Samuel r delany. I loved his work but a lot of sense fiction at that time was published. I in paperback so you didn't know who the authors were. But i found a hardcover at the local library was working of one of chips. One of delaney's novels and to as reading it turned to the inside back cover. And there's a picture of him and it was An epiphany What are you what do you. what do you mean an epiphany. May universe doubled in size. And i know he's tired of me telling the story but it's so true and that's when i started to look for where the other black writers were and where the other writers of color were. I was ready reading launch. The women writers in the feminist writers. But i began to look at how says fiction represented and so often misrepresented race and also other countries I come from the caribbean you. At that time. You have to go long. Distance defined the caribbean represented and accurately incense fiction. There are few more now so and it is a true. I mean you talked about paperback. The you couldn't figure out who the author was that identity of black writers and science fiction wasn't hidden but in some ways was downplayed right. Yeah there were at point.

"hopkinson" Discussed on Bitches on Comics
"Mean what the fuck. This comic is so great. You know it didn't have to be this great. My track record shows I will accept much less than house of whispers quality. This is one of the most high quality comics I have ever read in my life. This is so good. Every part of it is so good. It's the to me the best continuation of the Sandman mythos that really has existed I love the Sandman Comex I really loved the dreaming. I've loved a ton of the stuff that I have read. That was related kind of one offs and miniseries all over the place like. Like I love that stuff, but for my money, this was the best one because this is creating a whole different part of the world right? You know it's like we ended up with so much more mythology. Basically, a lot of people were like. Let's explore the characters that were already on the table, and that's a really great idea, but this kind of just goes in its own direction. Right from the very beginning. Touch on those characters I think this is some of the Best Cain and Abel Oh Gadjah. I'm not irradiated by their presence. I'm not trying to get them off. The page I'm like okay. Oh interesting. Yeah, she rides so well. Her came. Enable is incredible, and they're still like we talk a lot. About are the characters the same in like when someone else gets a hold of them as if a new iteration and this felt like a seamless continuation. said that, but not just sandman world, but like in able I mean the thing that I love about the Sandman Comex. Is How tricky they are to me. It always makes me think about what we try and talk about the way the brain works right and enjoyed because it's the dreaming dreams of trippy and. Cetera et, Cetera et Cetera and I just thought this built on that in such beautiful way. They're still trippy stuff. They're still at cool like I love the crocodile dude. He's cool, uncle Monday. Uncle Monday I love uncle Monday. He's so funny and I love that he contains these dichotomies. He's truly a gentleman, and like a very gentlemen sense right, and he'll be like. Oh, I'm going to go eat. Somebody like that's so cool. It's kind of beautiful. He jumps into the water. Has Crocodile Form sometimes and yeah, he's an amazing character. A lot of it is based on African gods, and the stuff is just so amazing I love the girls that are in the center of this. There's the girl her two younger sisters right and then her girlfriend are kind of the focal point in a way and one of them is dead without being dead at. At a certain, and that is just some of the weirdest coolest creepiest, just such a good plot twists kind of and just so great to watch unfold in front of you, and then resume early the goddess. Who's Oh my God the main character to see her? Not Know what something means. I always think that's what the Salmon Stories did best is they took these God or God plus almost beings, and gave them moral quandaries. Things never faced before, and that's exactly Hopkinson harnesses that energy in this, but it's so far because there's really not a skinny white dude. She's a big fat, black woman who's a bad ass and sexiest buck. She's amazed. God Damn! That woman is hot. Yeah, her ship. She has amazing boat that she. A riverboat and that's the big problem. Right is that the boat ends up her. She ends up in the water at a certain point, and then is kind of stranded. It's kind of the same as a lot of the same man stories like the best man stories, where is about a god whose powers are for some reason kind of stripped from them temporarily like not entirely, but temporarily and her having to get out of that and like. The? Ways the all of these characters end up having to work together in a strange way, even if they don't even directly in our act is kind of mind blowing to me, it's just like every single thing. We loved about this an man. It's those interconnecting stories, the deep dive into mythology, just gorgeous art, unbelievably gorgeous art in so fun to see religions and spiritual rights that are not Christian that are not creek. That are not Roman. Roman on the page to see African traditions and African diaspora traditions, treated with such tenderness and care and represented. You know sometimes I think about in in Constantine. There's so many bad examples of black religious traditions they strip away the agency and the spirituality that comes with these things, and they painted as and I'm gonNA use scare quotes. You just can't see me dark matter black magic, not in the sense of like black capital be magic. Magic done by Africans or African Americans or black people or the diaspora, but like the band Magic's. It just so happens to be done by black people and so fucked right like It's such a fucked up. Economy set up in the first place, and this is such a beautiful I want to say gentle way of reclaiming it. It have to go head to head with these sort of fucked up mythos that exist in the DC universe's. It can just sort of crack that open by saying. Saying and here's something else. We just happen to have not explored. That exists. You know and it's like yes, yeah, I mean that's it right? It totally just dive into things. We barely saw dressed in San. Man Does and so you have so so much to love about this comic. I think that NAO Hopkinson. Is such a great writer and has been writing so many novels and things. I think the first thing I read by her was maybe the salt roads and the seller is brutal. It's so good it's devastating. It's one of those books where almost every page I'm just like dear. God this is one of the best things I'm ever going to read in my life and being also still devastating here I feel like it has more kind of fanciful. Air Is kind of more comic book style absolutely. Brutal stuff in here. There's still stuff that's even just alkyl Monday in itself you know like. Down on people does having a casual crocodile God you. Know is very terrifying. Just in and of itself and having a girl, he was dead without being dead. Yeah, her girlfriend has still figure this stuff out with her. It's certainly haunting and eerie, and has all those things that I think are quintessential to the sandman universe. Some I don't know it feels like it. Just like the story.

"Hopkinson he was. Somebody, who did not like to be messed with? So I think that his ego was way off the charts. More so than anybody else and when you were calling yourself a God s Lori. Vow is on record of saying you're. He goes off the charts as well. So will she be the? I don't know the female version of Mark Hopkinson to be someone who was tried and convicted for proxy murder and a capital murder. Charge in Wyoming. Let's see if the investigators get there in Markov? Kingston case they had a lot of witnesses. They had a lot of testimonies. There was a lot of. Damning evidence. There's a lot of damning evidence that. Put more Cobb consent in the role of the one who was calling the shots and. Not Involved in the murders, but but the reason why they were happening. He didn't even he didn't even pay his lack. He's he short them. He promised the money and never paid him. Think about that. Think about how manipulated you'd have to be to. Screw over your Hitman, somebody who carries out murder I. Think I'd be a little worried if I did that. But it goes to show the EGOS shows the the grandeur of how they think of themselves. Nonetheless though. Did Not work out. They had a lot of evidence there. and. The end was him. On the gurney lethal injection, which is still there to this day. And we'll see what happens with Lori and maybe investigators or keeping a really close to the vest. Because that's where they're going with it, she's been on. In court in Idaho. and. They haven't really talked much other than getting in the way of police investigations but I believe they're just setting it up giving us much as they can keeping her as long as they can in jail until they can get this. Stuff figured out of what went down in yellowstone. Because why take the daughter there? Why take the daughter there on September eighth, and she disappears on that day. On September six Alex Cox is at Chad, tables houses cellphone as paying their. He scouting the territory on September six. They take a friendly. Family trip of just the daughter. Laurie and her brother Yellowstone on the eighth, and then on the ninth. There Alex back on Sunday, bills property. Burying the daughter. and He's already familiar with the territory. After bearing the daughter, they've separated her from the sun and few weeks later. They do the same to The Sun She takes out of school. She says that. It's for homeschooling, but did they take him to yellowstone? We don't know. We don't know. In yellowstone, it's a wide open space. It's very loud. There I could imagine at a certain time of night that you can be alone and you can use a gun. It can't be heard. So. That's what I think. That's what I think that she was therefore otherwise why go there? Why go there and why? Why does there? So we'll see, we'll see if the cops. And the investigators can get there in that case. But not forget about mark. Hopkinson, because if they're in Wyoming, they certainly know about him and what? He hadn't done there so long ago. But a stands today that if you do a proxy murder. Opposed to some other kind of murder. The jury. They've. They, don't they don't like that. He got three life sentences on the other bombings, but they'll get you for proxy. So what do you think about that? What do you think about? The case Mark Hopkins San and how that kid? Relate in his relevant Laurie balance case what she's got going on there. And the investigation. Think about it, I'M GONNA. Sign off on this episode. And I will see you next time on your story or your life, because it is thanks for joining me by..

"Killing. Of the daughter took place in Wyoming and Yellen Yellowstone National Park, and that was ordered by Laurie and Alex copied carried out that. that. Killing not murder then it's. A proxy murder and she's going to be facing. could be facing capital punishment in Wyoming and that's why it's so significant because Marquan consent being executed that if she did something like that so personal. To the daughter. By proxy there in Wyoming I, think would just be explosive to see what happens to her there and how she might turn on her own husband to save her own skin with capital. Punishment on the hook there. So. That's why it's very critical because. If the investigation right now is leading to that. A twist there is that the brother? Alex Cox who I believe and I've said on drowning verdict is the one responsible for. Killing the two children because I don't think Laurie could do that. Herself and I believe that's why they were separated and She was brought out to yellowstone the daughter. The Sun. Young son wasn't there with them. And I think they were separated that way. They brought the daughter out there, they they. If. They did do it that. That's where they did it.

"To. Implicate him in the original bombing. And so. Or Cop, concern was already in jail. In Federal Prison for conspiracy on the first bombing, they they couldn't link him to that bombing, but they they brought conspiracy charges for that bombing, and so he was doing like forty years in prison, so from behind bars he had ordered the hit on this other guy. Who I don't name names, but just another one of his lackeys. And when that was carried out. It was a murder torture situation. That was very ugly into the jury. It was just awful to. Actually imagine happening. So it was very personal. And on that proxy murder, the capital punishment was put on him, and that's what ended up getting him executed so with those four proxy murders. The the first one he wasn't in prison, he ordered. Lackey I will call him to carry out the bombing with like thirty sticks of dynamite to level the lawyers home and local area there in Wyoming where they all lived that happened. He did not get ten on that. Because no one would would talk about it, but he was synced to prison for forty years on federal conspiracy charge so from behind bars he ordered. Another Murder of one of his lackeys that turn on him. Who was going to testify and tell? A grand jury that he indeed Mark Hopkins in was behind the original bombing so. It's a long sordid case. It happened in the mid nineteen seventies and. Early eighties was convicted in and put on on death row. He's there. For about ten twelve years died by lethal injection in nineteen. ninety-two claimed his innocence all the way long and was very. Reminiscent of a psychopath in his writings, and his musings with the local news about how innocent he was, he was a master manipulator, and by all accounts he was a mobster. Not affiliated with any of the five families, but Behave the same way had hit, men ordered killings, and that's by proxy. So. What's interesting? Is that went down longtime ago? I said that the state of Wyoming. There had executed only one person last sixty years now happen to be more Cobb in San of course. And it was one. Killing that put the capital punishment on them, not the previous three. It was one and it was personal. Now How is that relevant? It's relevant to what's going on with the Laurie Valo case. I've covered a lot in detail drowning verdict. Some here on your story or your life because I have a spotlight on Chad Day debacle, the author and his writings. and. It's I totally recommend chicken that on drowning verdict, but with her case right now. A lot of information is coming out, but cops are keeping things very close to the best. They are just recently. She was in court with Certain charges related to get in the way of the investigation. Things like that. It's got a million dollar bond on her. But what's interesting to me? Is that her young daughter of course and her young son there rewritten remains were found day bells property. Now it's not so much where the remains were found but wear. They were killed and who did it and by. And by what means and and if they were ordered to do so because Laurie If you don't know, or you might remember. She was involved in what I consider. A proxy murder in Arizona of her fourth husband. essentially having her husband set up to be murdered by her brother Alex Cox, so the order came from Laurie to Alex. To take out the fourth husband, so in Arizona, the cops had pin that murder on Alex Cox but it was still an open investigation. They're still investigating Lori for that to this day. Although Alex Cox is now deceased, having died in his mysteriously and asleep in. December of two thousand nineteen, so that is the first proxy and I think cops left that open because they knew that Laurie ordered that hit. through Alex Cox to do that. So is that so important? Why am I talking about more cop? Kingston is because with the young daughter. She was last seen September eighth with Lori. And Alex. Cox Unknown triggermen unknown murderer the last day, alive September, eighth in yellowstone national. Park now yellowstone is a big national park in mainly in. It's also an Idaho and Montana. But.

If you think my content is good enough, please share it with friends. Come back for more because I'm always trying to deliver the best. I can't for you with what I got right now. In the future with in interviews and new insight, two fascinating cases got a really fascinating case today. as well as a connection I think a strong connection to something I've been talking about on drowning verdict a lot. which is the Valo case and I say her name I before Chad debacle, because she is going to be part of the subject here today, she's always been my focus from day one and covering the story over on drowning verdict an here talking about. Who is basically a proxy murder boss from way back in the day. His name's more COP Concen I've got a really interesting connection there about proxy murder, going down in Wyoming and why you should think about that for the Laurie Val case, it would be making me real nervous if I was her. If the cops figure out or get more. Information on what happened to her daughter in Yellowstone, National Park. But let me get into the subject day. More COP concen. A menu might not have heard of before. His case goes back quite a while. He was actually executed in the state of Wyoming in Nineteen, ninety two four proxy murder. And if you don't know what that is, that means it's murderer by her. So you are the person who wants somebody murdered, and you order a third party or another person to do the deed. You're ordering that you're not There when it happens typically. But they do the deed for you. It's not to unlike a mob boss Cohen hit on. Some of they WANNA. Get rid of. And so Mark Hopkinson. Is An? Interesting case it's. An old case and this stuff happened in the mid nineteen seventies. By the time the eighties rolled around he was. Basically put on trial. And then he was on death row for about ten to twelve years before before nineteen ninety-two, he was signed off to be executed by lethal injection and was. Now, the significance about. His case for execution is that in the state of Wyoming. There's only been one execution last sixty years and Mark Hopkinson was it. There's not a whole lot of people on death row. I don't know if there's anyone on their today, but there certainly wasn't when he was there, he was the only guy there. And prior to that, it had been since nineteen sixty five cents state of Wyoming had. Executed anyone. His case was all about proxy murder. He was tried and convicted for. Proxy murderers, but one of those put the capital punishment on his head. Three of those were a life sentence, but there's one that was really personal, and the jury just didn't see anything other than capital punishment for it. It was just as for the crime. And, like I said the state of Wyoming, WanNa get rid of this guy. Because in that place, it's not a whole lot of population. There's just very uncommon for for crimes taking place, and that's why I've thought of when covering the Laurie Valo Chat deba. Case of how important that is to Turkey and investigators. If they found out if they do find out that there was a proxy murder that took place in yellowstone national, Park, in the Wyoming site saw get into that a little bit of covered it over on my other podcast drowning verdict definitely, check that out because there's a lot of chapters there and It's just it's just fascinating so getting back to Hopkinson, what he had done was. Basically, got into a waterland dispute in the mid nineteen seventies, he was somebody who was. Described as well liked very charming athletic, and for that small town area where he grew up in Wyoming was well known. people really liked him. He could get out of just about anything using his charm and his manipulation, which are hallmarks of psychopaths. So going into like a a waterland dispute with another person over like a trailer park, situation or hookup for water. If you could imagine living in Wyoming in the nineteen seventies, it's pretty darn rural, so you're going to need things like water hookups, and you've probably got outhouses, but there was a trailer park. There's A. Water dispute there was. All sorts of. Things going on there. Basically in that dispute, he wanted he was so. Just, enraged about it that the lawyer who is representing the other party in that dispute, he won the lawyer killed and by proxy he had. Ordered one of his lackeys. Local lackey, somebody who has a connected to him to basically do the deed and bomb. The lawyers home in that bombing. was enough dynamite to take out a whole neighborhood. It completely leveled the House. He had ordered that that killed three members of the royal family, including the lawyer himself, so that was very satisfactory. Mr Arc Hopkinson. And that was murder by proxy through bombing. Now? During that time. There was also another. Guy Who was part of his local crew who had On, his order had gone out to do a bombing in Arizona, but got caught by the cops. He wanted another. Lawyer, taken, out, who. So this this guy. He was going to take out the bombing. He wasn't the one who had bombed the lawyers home in Wyoming. It was a different guy. And part of his local crew people he knew from local area, high school, and that sort of thing. And HE DIDN'T Wasn't successful with the other lawyer Arizona. And it's a long and twisted sorted case, but it ended up turning out to where that guy turned on markup, concen in in court and was actually going to testify. In front of a grand jury.

"Hopkinson tight end. Now, he's running rolls out to his left. Somebody fires downfield toward the post TJ. Number of catches your touchdowns this season with the hawk is. Now, he's the most complete tight end in this draft aware company size speed and strength Parkinson using downfield with great hands. He's also a willing blocker who seeks out contact on the second level. Generational talent. At that position. I would be shocked if he did last two number eleven tonight. But if he does then the Bengals would be insane. Not to pick him. All right. So cow. Dave. You are now on the clock. So hopefully been thinking long and hard about this. He is picking four his wife's favorite team the Green Bay Packers. We'll give you just a few moments to text in. I would also suggest if you're Steve or Grady, and you're coming up maybe just fire off a couple of names that way we can make things go smoothly. Gotta taxed in here. Do you do this is directed towards me? Do you do the Jaguars thing just to trigger me? Or is it how you really say it I legitimately. Save the same way all the time. And I do not here difference. I listened very closely to Tiki barber yesterday when he said the team name, I listened to everyone, and I seriously do not here difference between the way I say the Jacksonville football team's name in the way. Other people. Do it is really bizarre. And I don't want to keep like everybody pops up and saying, hey, you're saying it again, I legitimately don't hear difference. So there you go. All right here, we go so cow. Dave. Says don't say basketball. Do I say basketball funny? You guys are just trying to get in my head. So cow Dave says with the twelfth pick and the drive time sports Mark draft the Green Bay Packers select Jono Williams tackle, Alabama..

"Which is why we go to our first offense lineman off the board. John Taylor guy who probably slots in for a long-term right tackle spot where he played most of his college ball Todd pretty athletic guy, and you know, for the Jaguar avenue quarterback you'd better find a way to protect to on Taylor's. The possibility Alabama's Joan Williams tackle could move inside to guard or even centers possibility. And then I also wouldn't discount the possibility of TJ Hopkinson tight end from from Iowa. He's the most complete tightened in this class. And they could Nick foles could use kind of security blanket of that position. There has minute tight end drafted that high in a really long time. But I wanted to stop for a moment there because. It's the first time we mentioned enough -fensive linemen. There have been very few of them in the conversation. It feels like in the lead up here. So my sense is this is not a euro. We have one of those rock-solid left tackle them out there for fifteen years ago. We've got a bunch of really good players. Drawn Taylor's right tackle, Jona Williams played left, but also played right. And you could move them inside. Cody Ford's right tackle that will probably kick inside the guard. He's the most athletic Andre Dillard from Washington state, but he's still developing, and I think the interior is the best that we've had in several years with windstream Samir the govern. And then the centers Bradbury is going to be a first round pick out of North Carolina State and Eric McCoy. So you're talking about five potential first round picks at garden center alone. Okay. So I slowed us up there. Once again, my go to the Detroit Lions field who do we have? You just mentioned it's been awhile since a tight end went as high as I'm about to take one which is TJ Hopkinson out of Iowa one of two possible. First round picks tight end out of Iowa fills a need for the lines of did sign Jesse James this here in free agency. But they've revamped this offense and Hopkinton probably the best to face tight end can certainly handle his duties as a run blocker dynamic in the past and Goodyear to come out because Jacksonville can take one Detroit critique on buffalo, Denver Cincinnati. And then at number twelve the Green Bay Packers all have needs at the tight end position. I want to keep it moving because I know what's coming number nine in buffalo. Let's move back. We were just talking about the offense of Lyman and Todd mentioned that Joan Williams played some left Acklin complacent, right? Tackle played guard at the pro level, incredibly smart player, steady dependable if you're gonna play for a long time for Nick Sabin. You're going to probably be pro ready in the bills loaded up on infuriate aside from Mitch Morris. The new center they signed from the Kansas City Chiefs. None of the players. They've added is a surefire long-term picture along the offense of line..

"Mortgage is with you every step of the way to provide a seamless mortgage experience coming up in about thirty minutes or so rocky sin who is projected to go. Either late first round early. Second round the cornerback at a temple my alma mater will join us a few things stand out to me about this draft. In terms of the first round number one. We'll start with the number one overall pick. Will it be kind of Murray? Also, the strength of the defense in this draft, especially on the defensive line with Josh Allen Bosa Quinton Williams sweat Wilkins. I'll be curious in the top ten how many defensive lineman do go. The giants with the quarterback we've discussed that. Will they go quarterback at six? Will they go quarterback? Seventeen or do they elect not to take a quarterback at all? I'm also wondering we're teaching Hopkinson we'll go because we've seen a trend to the National Football League where there's an importance now on the tight end position to a different level because you had the gronk to the world we've seen Zakar. Excel. We've also seen Travis Kelsey you have Tony Gonzalez Tonio gates so on and so on Jason win. And who's now back which is so crazy to believe getting rid of the hairpiece. And all but now, you have people looking at what teams have done recently, specialized two years, and you see the way that the tight end position is now regarded and tight ends go earlier really than in years past. So a person like did you Hopkinson? Does he go in the top ten or mock draft? He did also be curious where DJ mecca full. Go after his very impressive. Combine when he has numbers at the combine it seems as if he was going to be a top ten pick. Now, it seems like he's gonna be mid to late teens. Also, you have Josh shakeups the running back from Alabama. I think you'll be the first running back off the board. The question is we're will he go. And then the patriots. They lost Cordell. Patterson? No, rob gronkowski. No more. Chris HOGAN to the patriots say we'll move up or do they stay put at thirty two. So those are some thoughts. I do think you'll have three to four quarterbacks. Go in the first round Murray Haskins lock wall, first rounders. And then I think Daniel Jones will be as well. But I don't know where they're going to go. And I think you really are going to have some teams trading up to make a play for quarterback. Whether it's the Bengals whether it's the Redskins. You'll have some teams that I think will move up in this draft to get their quarterback. And let me start things off with Murray for the Miami Dolphins and play to to maybe move up and get a quarterback. And some of those teams say, hey, we'll stay put it eleven thirteen. Fifteen ten and trying to get the quarterback. Others may say we got to be a little bit aggressive. I was reading a report from CBS is P purse go he said initially the ownership pushed for Kyle Murray. Prisco recently said on CBS sports HQ that much. I know I was told that the reason they did is they are having a hard time selling tickets. Well, they put it out there. Our Zona was lukewarm to it all the sudden there are pulling back and from what I've been told they're going to go in a different direction. They are not going to draft Cuyler Murray. That's from Pete Prisco. Through the last two months. Really the last month. We've heard Kyla Murray. Kyla Murray column Murray, Colin Murray going one, and I sat there, and I said if you're Steve are you really going to move on for head coach after one year and a quarterback that you drafted in the first round and didn't give out fraternity to they could. I have not been fully budding yet. Clearly, I won't be surprised if it happens. But if it doesn't have been I'm not going to sit there and say, oh my goodness gracious. How did they pass up in calamari? And he'll go in the first round. But if he doesn't go one how far does he fall? Would he go at four? Would another team try to swoop in. They're all things to one s Ben do you believe right now? That column is going to be the first pick in the draft. I don't I haven't believed it from the get-go because to me all of this hoopla all this hype. All this speculation is was based off of flippant comment that cliff Kingsbury made last year. When he was still coaching college ball just trying to give Kyla Murray some props and give him some credit for his talent. When he could have never imagined that a year later, not only would he be coaching in the NFL. But the team that he'd be coaching would have the first overall pick and Cuyler Murray would be in the draft as the Heisman winner. So you're going. He said, oh, yes, I was coaching in the NFL would actually I would never I would totally draft. Kyla murray? First overall, he never in his wildest dreams imagine that he'd be or ago. So without that comment. I don't know if we'd even be discussing it. It's such a good point. Thank you. And it's something that I sit there. And once again, why are you moving on from Josh Rosen so quickly why? And the way that Bob mcmanamon did place it out to be Kingsbury wants him time wants to go different direction. And if your time and you take Murray. You have what two years where he has to prove that he is definitely the right guy or maybe less because you got rid of your coach and your quarterback in one ear. So if I'm time and last year you throw it away. Now, you have a new coach it buys you a little extra time in some patients with rose where Murray comes in you're going to be judged right away. And not only you're going to be judge right away. Probably in your number one. If Rosen goes somewhere else plays. Well, well, then you'll definitely be out of a job. If Murray doesn't live up to the hype. Well, what would it say about kind? I mean think about this year ago, you come in and show, it doesn't know his elbow from his ass show. And and either you you thought Rosen was the guy or you didn't you got overruled by your coach or your scouting team? You're pro personnel department in which case you. Look week. So either either he's your guy ary wasn't. And if you're gonna take Murray either way, it's a damning indictment on what you are is the general manager and not only that so not only think about this you three things in player. Not only would you get rid of your coach from a year ago. Not only would you get rid of your quarterback. But let's not forget not only are you messing up on the field. You had an issue off the field. Remember, this guy was suspended for DUI? So where's the positive with the general manager? If you don't get the right quarterback. If you move on from the coach and you had something off the field. What is the argument to keep you as the general manager? And even if Kingsbury thinks this is the guy because I could see how Murray would fit his system. You didn't think you'd have this conversation when you hired them Penelope that wouldn't you only hire him? If he if you thought if you're Steve kind, and you know, hey, I hit the fire my coach after one year. And now I have a young quarterback that we drafted invested a pick on wouldn't you hire the sky thinking, this is the guy that is definitely gonna make Josh Rosen. Stuck and imagine if your time, and you make this move and you draft for Murray the only possible way that you look good as if Murray turns out to be a stud because even if Rosen turns out to be a dud elsewhere. Or even worse. He turns out to be great new trade him away. You just wasted too. High high high first round draft picks on quarterbacks in back to back years, and you essentially did nothing with it. That's not a fireable offense. That's like a banned from football for life offense. You can't do that. So if I'm him, I don't want any of that. I'm going to stick with the guy, and maybe I've a little plausible deniability frozen doesn't pan out. And I blame it on on the coaching regime prior how many quarterbacks go in the first round. Four. Four. Yeah. Said three to four I think. Yeah. I think you'll get four now where they go. I don't have a damn clue. There really isn't that as many teams as you'd like to think that need a quarterback of the ones that do probably pull the trigger. Well, yeah. Will hear the teams? So the teams that will be in need of a quarterback the Bengals the dolphins. The redskins. Those are three teams. Now, maybe you get a keen like the giants quarterback too. But I'm not sold the giants a quarterback. So those are four teams right there. Now, maybe you get a team like the cardinals or the the raiders say goodbye Murray. Rosen and and car maybe you had in Denver. But then really about it. But then here's the one thing. If maybe what we're seeing where quarterback in the mock draft didn't go to ten maybe these quarterbacks full, and you get a team like let's say New England, or let's say the chargers that want to take one of these guys like a Jones or a lock and they move up to get him to set up their future a possibility. So you would love the chargers the pats the saints and the Steelers into well the Steelers have Mason Rudolph. Remember, they gotta monitor right. But again a little bit later, but I'm looking at agent quarterbacks. You think if the scenario that we laid out in the mock draft happened you could see teams with age and quarterbacks jumping into. Back into the first round or moving up in the first round, essentially. Okay. Yeah. Like, for example, let's say twenty let's say somehow Jones is still there or maybe one of these teams like will Greer, and it's going I don't, but let's just say it's like twenty seven twenty eight you know, around there, and those were probably the most those teams it'd be picking anyway. But wouldn't surprise me. If a team moves up or maybe makes a trade early on into the second round to move up. I'll Baltimore Ravens last year. Yeah. Because what Jackson went what thirty two or thirty one. Yeah. He went the last. Thirty in. So something like that wouldn't surprise me. Or you have one of those teams. Let's say you have a situation where the dolphins take a dolphins have needs everywhere. So let's say thirteen they make their play. They get a defensive player or an offense weapon. That's not a quarterback. Then let's say at twenty four they're still quarterback on the board or Twenty-eight this though quarterback on the board they swoop in and get a little double double win. Again. The Baltimore Ravens last year. So we'll take your phone calls when we come back. Rocky singh. Gonna join us at four forty AM eastern executive show on CBS sports radio.

"hopkinson" Discussed on First Draft
"I'm going to be highlighting hand tied that morning leading up to the start a day three. I'll go Josh Oliver, San Jose State. And I think we we talk about the three the three tight ends. That are very likely to go in the first round at least the top forty picks Noah fan, obviously, he got Hopkinson. The the other Iowa tight end Irv Smith junior from Alabama. After that. I think Oliver is in the mix to be in that second third round probably third round range in the next three or four tight ends. Catches the ball. Well, he's he's got decent size. Six six five six four and a half two hundred and forty nine pounds. Ran a four six three which is a heck of a time for titan had a breakout season this year had fifty three catches and average thirteen yards per catch. He'll block a little bit too. I mean, I think he's he's not going to be an elite player. But I think he's a guy who could emerge as a starter. And you're getting him probably in that third round ranges. I said throw it. Interesting name boy move on Nick FitzGerald. Can he be tight end? Can't he be that Mississippi State, cordless let me say quarterback who not going to be a quarterback trace McSorley? Penn State may not be a quarterback. Maybe tastes them hill. Maybe a safety had nine interceptions the last two years of high school. Well, these quarterbacks make that transition Fitzgerald's case, we make it the tight end. It seems like he has the the want to the desire may be to do it. He certainly a gifted athlete. We know how tough he is. I think it'll be interesting. I always said Tibo should've tried it. Then want to? It'll be interesting to see that type of career is carved out by one Nick FitzGerald from Mississippi State. He ran some routes at Mississippi State after he said that they surprise the scout surprised him. He didn't have any idea that they were going to ask him to to do some tight end stuff at the combine. And so understandably he's like, no, no, I'm good. And then he went back, and he kinda thought about it is like, you know, what the pro dam going to get ready. I'm going to run I'm going to kind of figure out how to run a couple routes catch the ball a little bit. And at least have some preparation, which I completely understand. That's exactly what I would have done. If I was in his shoes. And I give them a lot of credit for it. And I'll tell you what I'm going to get the Ivy leagues because they still play some decent football in the Ivy league. Yemen, Jesper horse dead and Stephen Carlson are two players. I saw during the year I highlighted horse that on ESPN dot com. One.
"hopkinson" Discussed on The Russillo Show
"Fan is four five Hopkinson four seven average thirteen three a catch Okkas fifteen five catch now for Noah fan. There were some drops during his career blocking is going to be something. He needs to step up there. He's a guy that should have been kept saying all year when I was watching Iowa he should catch outta targeted him Ryan to your. Point. I would have targeted him seven eight nine ten times a game. I would have made sure he got five six seven catches a game. I'm looking not many targets to three catches Hopkinson which going on here. Something's not right. When a guy is that skilled playing Isla where you don't see five star recruits coming in there every year, and he's not being the future guy. What's missing here? What am I missing what's going on here? And all of a sudden now Hopkinson stole that role away from from though a fan, then you think about okay. Well, you look at where's he going to be in terms of the draft. And I kept calling around a mock draft aren't about what I think they're about with the league's going to do. And I kept hearing when surprise me when early second borderline first fringe, I think, okay, I'm I'm thinking did I will maybe I'll push him the Green Bay with Aaron Rodgers needing a weapon and one thing for no offense. You have to also appreciate despite the fact that he didn't have the main role Hopkinson did he had eighteen touchdown receptions over the last two years? Pretty so of red zone threat. He is he's a talented kid. He should fit today's NFL perfectly and for the Green Bay Packers more. So than New England. I thought it'd be a nice fit for their for Aaron Rodgers. That's why gave him the Green Bay. But he's he's one of those enigmas as Shaan Jerry is kind of Jona Williams's. I think there's a lot of guys drew lock quarterback, Missouri. A 'nigma who's kind of polarizing a little bit. I think Sean dairies most polarizing player in this rat draft defensive end for Michigan. So there's a lot of those guys Ryan, I would say mixed opinion on that are very hard to figure what kind of pro they're going to become. I'm glad you brought over overshot area. Because of all the Michigan games that I've watched I felt like I noticed him as much as anybody could say that about different Bush to linebacker, but the numbers, you know, sacks can be incredibly misleading. But when it's ten and a half over career for Gerry is this just really impressive. You still haven't gone on a top. There's times I'm like, this guy is studded sky this guys stood. And then I don't know. Like, I wonder why there wasn't a little bit more production. Even though I understand that a lot of this stuff can be misleading. Well, they say was scheme. Okay. Turn him loose and all of a.
NBA Draft 2019: Latest 1st-Round Order, Predictions
"And ladies and gentlemen, we have a new mock draft out Mel kiper Jr's three point. Oh is here with us. And we are looking forward to the draft. Mel will join us in just about an hour to talk about the new mock draft. But there have been some changes in the draft specifically one less quarterback. Now going in the first round then in mel's two point oh mock draft. So we have four in the two point oh mock draft with Daniel Jones from Duke rounding out of the last pick of the draft to the patriots in the first round of thirty two. There are only three quarterbacks now in the first round, according to mel's latest mock. And obviously a retirement might be a big reason why and the quarterbacks have changed as well. Right. As far as where they're they're going. Well, Cuyler he still has Tyler going number one derozan. Well in his last draft Cuyler going number thirteen to the dolphins. So now and this draft he hasn't going number one. He had. Dwayne Haskins going number six at a giant Kyle Murray. Going number thirteen to the to the dolphins. Drew lock going fifteen to the Redskins and Daniel Jones going thirty two to the patriots. So as you mentioned Daniel Jones now out of the first round, according to the latest mock draft by Mel kiper, just three quarterbacks Murray number one. The main says Dwayne Haskins at number six, and you start to hear reports that the giants may go defense was six and then was seventeen go quarterback. But right now twain Haskins at six and then drew lock sitting there at number thirteen for the dolphins. Does the only three quarterbacks in this latest first round. Yeah. Going to be very interesting because we know what the giants listen one thing. Dave Gettleman has made very clear he does not feel beholden to tell us his plan. And so I don't feel overly beholden to believe. A lot of what we're hearing coming out of the giants can't because if you've got a guy who's basic messages trust me, I got this. Well, then we understand he doesn't feel like he has to tell us the truth. So as we hear these things. Coming out. We also understand this time of year is about deception to an extent it's trying to manipulate the draft order trying to manipulate the opinions of certain players. So that you can try and put yourself in the best position to get the guys you ultimately want. So it makes it difficult to try and read the tea leaves it is although I have to say on cattlemans behalf. He said all of last spring saquon Barkley is a generational talent with the second overall pick. And that's where he went. Look, I think we all agreed. There has to be a quarterback in the giants future. Whether it's at six or seventeen trade now Cleveland, but it would not surprise me in the least if Dave Gettleman waited until the second or third round to take a quarterback this Dave Gettleman, he created that created, but he he made the term a more of a vernacular in the NFL draft hog molly's when he was the GM of the Carolina Panthers. He loves the big guys to hog mollies. And let's be honest. This draft is going to be decided outside of Kyla Murray. More than anything else about the big defensive lineman in this draft. The hog Molly is on the defensive side of the ball. So depending on your draft grades for your quarterbacks you could take one of those at six and then a quarterback at seventeen it all depends again on your on your draft great. If twain Haskins is highest on the board and draft grades. You don't pass that up. If you have a Dwayne Haskins drew lock. And whatever other quarterback equal in grades. You know, maybe use that seventeen pick baby can trade it up somehow to get one of those guys as I said, this always comes down to grades. Do. You have a choice amongst grades. Are you close enough in quarterbacks where if you don't get one you try and get the other? But we'll see we'll see, you know, one of the biggest changes in from the last two this for Mel was they had the patriots taken Daniel Jones a quarterback, and this one I serve Smith junior the tight end from Alabama going, and that would not be shocking at all you have really three out of the top tight end Hopkinson the kid from Iowa teammate, Noah Fant, and then Smith junior all three likely to go in the first round a three first round tight end to on the same team come on. And what would that tell you as we saw? The patriots jump into the first round and take a running back and Sony Michelle at the end of that. And now to see in the next year three tight ends going. We've talked about this. However, you want to split it. Last year were Quinton Nelson. Went in the top ten in the draft as an offensive guard. We saw roquan Smith going the top ten as a middle linebacker. The middle of the field is worthy. NFL is being built right now. And other teams are starting to catch up to what the patriots have done for years. The way that we've seen teams export that specific area and three tight ends in the first round would hammer that home not denying that. They are guys that are certainly probably more talented than usual tight end groups. We're used to seeing but it's also about value. It's why you see running back taking it to overall by the giants last year. I mean, the other thing is I think they're more interior linemen in this first round then quarterbacks right? Like, a not tackles guards and centers. There are more of those according to males latest mock than there are actual quarterbacks being taken which would be very unusual. So the top five in this new draft that Mel kiper put out is Kylie Murray. Number one of the cardinals Nick both the D N number two to the forty Niners. Number three. Josh Allen the outside backing backer pass rusher going to the jet number four Cornyn Williams. To the raiders and number five guy making a pretty big jump. Devon white going to Tampa Bay at five in the last mock draft he was number eleven to the Bengals now in mel's draft. He is sitting at number five number six twain Haskins seven Joon Taylor. The offense attack from Florida going to Jacksonville sweat, the D N going to the lions at eight Sean, Gary the D N going into the bills from Michigan and TJ Hopkinson. The tight end going to the Broncos at number ten. Here's here's what I wanted to talk to Mel about and one of the issues that I have laid on me big fella with with this draft comes, you know, some some point and one of them is there are few prospects in new first round projection who are making their debuts because of their combine performances. There are four guys who have jumped into mel's first round who weren't out there before again based on the combine combine performances. I don't understand that. I don't I don't understand that. If you wanna say. You looked at the combine to go back and look at tape of them. But to say, they're combine performance jumped them up that doesn't compute to me. Well, I think that's I think that's the assumption though, is because of their performance you went back and look and that. That's fair. That's why I want to ask them. How did this? Make you go back and study them more. Because if you're just basing things off the combine I got a real issue with that. Yeah. I I don't think you would do that or teams. But at the same time, you look at the positions of the majority of the players that would be involved in that. And I think this could be true for teams as well. It's interior offense. It is right. Three interior offensive linemen Terry McLaren the wide receiver, but when it comes to interior offensive lineman. You wanna talk about an area where the scouting grossly lags behind to actually great and overall draft. It's a difficult area for a lot of people to see and understand because you don't have the benefit of a lot of stats. You don't have the benefit of even the combine members necessarily always translating to production. So when those guys go and they paying and they flag in the model somewhere for what they do at the combine. And then you go back and spend some more time looking at a guy like Lindstrom who wasn't going to be a big name. He wasn't like, you know, Gary bradberry from North Carolina State won the Remington award this year. Like that guy was a stud Boston College was a middling. Okay. ACC team this year. So Lindstrom wasn't getting the credit. He deserved even being as good as he is. So you go back now, and even these NFL teams, maybe we're late to the party on some of these guys all of a sudden start giving them an extra. That's why I want to ask I just wanna make sure with Mel that because I'm just reading from the combine performance, and again, let's put a name. To those you mentioned McLaren the wide receiver who is one of the others. Chris Lynch reminder, you just mentioned from Boston College now. Number twenty one to Seattle Eric McCoy interior linemen going number twenty two to Baltimore. Right and the Garrett bradberry. The Senator from North Carolina State who is you mentioned one the Remington award is the best center in the country number thirty one to the LA Rams where they have an aging center, and John John Sullivan. And that was that was one of the things have been saying for the Rams the last couple of years that dynasties been built on the interior. If you land a guy like that good, Lord or you winning out it is. So we'll see how that plays out. Now, the one thing that I find interesting he he has drew lock the third quarterback Mel dozen his latest mock going thirteen in Miami. I'm telling you don't take out Denver at ten in Cincinnati of eleven in play for quarterbacks. I mean. Yeah. Denver made the play for Joe flacco. But John Elway has messed this up a couple of times with all due respect. I mean, that's just outside of getting Peyton Manning. He has not figured out the quarterback spot there at ten they might be in play for quarterback. And you have Andy Dalton with his situation with the Bengals and his contract situation. I, you know, I think that there's a really good chance that they could be in play with a quarterback there, by the way, by the way, Mel kiper Jr's mock draft not the biggest item related to the draft this week. That will have news for you guys. What more on that coming up later? This week
"hopkinson" Discussed on First Draft
"But I think he could go in the late first round or the worst the second round. I like our Smith like them all along. And I think that's where he would figure along with TJ Hopkinson Hopkinson from Iowa is probably the most intriguing guy because he's big it can run you can get down to field. He's he plays with an attitude plays with a chip. Yeah. He's not gronkowski. That comparisons always exaggerated. But he gives you a little bit of that will block, I think TJ Hawkins the best all round tight end. Cadence Smith good player Stanford. It depends on what he runs that's going to be important for Smith. No offense athletic kid who wasn't as productive as Hopkinson. But certainly has a lot of talent Tommy Sweeney. Boston College is kind of the senior gonna gets lost with all the underclassmen in the shuffle a bit. He had a great week in mobile. Yeah. Foster Moreau, LSU's and other one Josh Oliver San Jose State through sample, Washington. But I I go to Sweeney Todd if these juniors and testing, obviously, cadence miss going to be the one to forty for cadence Smith is going to be really important for him. But I think Tommy Sweeney is he a second round guy. If he runs well enough. I mean, it doesn't have to be great if but I think third round is probably like right now if I had to guess I would say third, but it won't shock. If you go second. He catches everything. I know his tight end coach. It was my tight end coach in college Richmond. And he just he's and he would be honest with me, but he swears by this kid one of the the best hardest working kids. He's ever coached loves the game. Gonna do. Everything's gonna be put in the work and it shows up. He's just from the blocking to route running. He just was technically sound and found ways to separate and he may not run the fastest time or be the most athletic of them..
"hopkinson" Discussed on First Draft
"And throwing it around a lot that's benefited a lot of tight ends in a lot of kind of hybrid types is this class as loaded as I keep hearing. Yeah. It's pretty good. It's a good class. I mean, Alberto, I believe from what I've read goes back to side to go back. Go back to Missouri. I'm not I'm going to try to pronounce his last name right now. I don't have a pronunciation guide in front of me. But but Albert, oh was would have been another guy thinks some more on day two. But with fan you've got a basically a slot wide receiver with size to create mismatches. Yeah. With with Hopkinson, you've got a complete guy. A why tight and the compla- inside? You can move them out flexible and do different things. He's gonna run better than people think he's a better athlete than people think he's got great hands. And he's a tough SOB as a blocker really is. And and I think Irv Smith is gotten better and better as a blocker. He was downright nasty and that Oklahoma, and I think while he projects a little bit more as kind of your slot receiver, and that f tight end I think he's shown that he's at least capable and functional as a blocker. Even if it's just in space in the NFL so to. Out with those three guys. That's that's a stronger group off the top than we normally see in Hopkinson the third year soft west like a waiting Todd is you don't want to put these guys too high early. But every time you watched him thirty eight was the impressive guy the blocking in line the catch the enthusiasm. He plays the game with the toughness and ship. He plays with and he's so bad Tennessee, they need weapons for Mario. You think about what he could mean? That's him several teams in the late first round. So I think TJ Hopkinson once he declared boy it's like getting right up there. Because he's a big time talent guys we have an incredible stack of mail. Come in here. So we're going to take a quick break. And then we got stacks. Some of these are smart questions. I I got to give you some credit. You've been reading.
