"Terry maclaurin and irv smith clyde ever dealer damian harris terry mclernon irv smith. How do you feel about love terry. Mclaren that's easily. My favorite of jamie's breakouts and i don't like i think there was a point. Where jamie might have had terry maclaurin top five and didn't even hate it that much. There were the point where. I think where i had him top seven. He has been really good with mostly miserable. Quarterback play nine point zero yards per target over two hundred twenty seven targets from bad quarterbacks. He already basically had his breakout last year. In my opinion one hundred and thirty four targets and fifteen games eighty seven catches eleven hundred eighteen yards but it was disguised by the fact that he had some injury problems and he always scored four touchdowns on one hundred thirty four targets the year before he scored seven times. Ninety-three targets thank..

"Or even be better. It really starts and ends to me with the offensive line. i agree. bradberry has to play a higher level. Cleveland players a higher level. There's no question about that now. I love. I love the pick. Dr so i do. I really liked his film. I think he has a very high ceiling at the left tackle position because he can move in spacing. Climb the second level zone scheme which you're gonna see a lot from minnesota and that will really help in dalvand cook. Because i think david cook you can have a discussion. That he he's the best running back in the nfl. You can have that discussion because his games. Because his traits his contact belts his vision and ability to cut back off left tackle to climb in seal for him that creates open running lanes for him in terms of kirk cousins. Like you said kirk. Cousins is a very scheme. Bene- quarterback is what he is. I don't think minnesota wants them anywhere near the bucket. I i think that's why you see so much. Play action heavy boot. They'll boot cousins on all whites. Numbers tell long way to go. I mean they him as far away from the pocket as possible. I don't think he does well in muddy pockets. I think like you said with. Jared goff is a very structured throw who leans in the scheme when he is throwing with rhythm in that scheme. Mean kirk cousins you. He can as his holidays. When he's with the net structure the scheme he can light up a light up at nfl defense and especially with the receiving talent. He has at the top with the especially. Justin jefferson how they scheme jefferson or crate open second and third level windows for him. I was so impressed with jefferson. I was so impressed. One with his bill to win at the line of scrimmage versus press coverage but also his ability within the route. Step the set of defensive backs the crate leverage and create an opening from two separate with speed at the break and gives quarterback clean target here excellent rookie season excellent rookie season. I was trying to think of where jefferson gets better and honestly i was kind of hard pressed to come up with stuff like the dude. I mean i. I liked him at lsu. I was curious to see how it would translate to playing outside in particular in the nfl. But like like you said. Off line of scrimmage incredible the route running unreal all three levels contested catches like he is so complete as a receiver. And it's so important for minnesota. Because while adam feeling is still he still really really good you do see that athleticism declining a little bit a little. Bit less explosive. He's not really fighting. Through the way you stu and winning at the catch point and so to have jeffers in on the ascent as feeling kind of maybe slides into that next. Here is it's sensational. I'm so they did signed dede. Westbrook point i mentioned why whatever threes kind of the area of interest because bunch of fun names cad babies still there johnson and smith marquette who my friend eight thais love. So you know. it's. I'll be curious to see if they play more eleven to three warriors here because this is a team that plays very little without rudolph their ends but by and large. I feel like do mean. Yeah that's okay to say that though because we understand what they're going to be they're gonna be run heavy with misdirection employer. That's what they're going to be run misdirection plan. Take their shots on the field Interesting irv smith. Irv smith i think does have some functional hip tightness okay. He's not gonna in terms of getting out of his breakthrough some tightness in his hips. But you can scheme for that. You can have them stretch. The same crosses overs off blacks. And i think he is good. After the catch you mentioned. Smith set obviously our alumni. So this you talk about a scheme fit for a day three pick. This is pretty good now. Also know smith are set gives you some upside and special teams like you did for the hawkeyes. But you're running de crossers oaths okay. This is a guy who can press at the field and separate speed out of his break to run. Those deep crosses and overs again. What he can do after the catch is very important. So i think he's a guy that could also have a shot at wadsworth wide receiver three spot. But you do bring up a great point. They're not trying to recreate what they are minnesota. They're not we know what they are. We know what they are in terms of offensive structure in the system. They want to run. And we know they are with kirk cousins and how they want to utilize them especially on google play action to get them away from the bodies at his feet so he has clear vision. It can throw the football and the defense is k. Blow when they're actually healthy. So this is i think it's a team that totally has the talent in the coaching challenges wildcard team. You know just a few things have to go their way So the the the true not wildcard team but wildcard in the metaphorical sense of the division is chicago because as much as i said like. We know what the vikings the bears offense is. You know it's all the so many questions so let's start there. I mean i do not like answering the question. When should the rookie quarterback start i. It is not interesting to me. It is subject to variables that are dependent on speculation. So that said. I want to talk about justin. Feels in this offense and what it should look like when he start because that is interesting to me and you know when he wins the job and he's gonna win at some point. Guys that spoiler alert he is going to start at some point given the issues with the offensive line which is arguably one of the big question marks on the team and the skill players. They do have whom we can discuss. How would you and what we saw from him in college and what we didn't see from him. How would you if you were matt. Nagy game plan around justin fields up and get a start almost level so you start with a quick game in our bureau throws those those at the top of the call. She won for young quarterback. It's very define. You're getting from one to two as fast. You can't get the ball out with speed whether you're under center and the gun. Obviously the rpo ran rpo's that'll how state and one he brings an added elm to the rpo because of his ability as runner and the ball care division. The physical element he plays with. So i think our peos and quick game to be at the top lot of in breakers a lot of breakers and second level throats with allen robinson..

"I think swift is the only one. I really count on to be a legitimate passing game help the way the lions used him last season and the skill set he showed. I think he's probably the best bet among this group to have sixty five to seventy targets. I think it's an open question for everyone else So he might actually end up being number one among this group once. I you know tweak things but i like all of them well enough i think acres is the one that i'm least likely to draft this year. He you know the the six games where he was really the every down back playing. Sixty five to seventy five percent of the snaps. He rushed for five hundred and sixty one yards which is awesome but only had fourteen targets in those five era. Those six games one hundred forty seven receiving yards. I'm just. I'm not sure. What the receiving game role is going to be. That hasn't really been there for the rams since todd gurley new quarterback there was running backs all the time in fact that the andre swift has a new quarterback. That hasn't who's running backs in two years. I just don't think that matters a lot more within the context of the offense and the quarterback themselves. There are certain quarterbacks who don't throw the ball to the running max. But that's mostly mobile quarterback deshaun watson who are more willing to scramble than just dump off so acres. The carries were a huge carry. Tom numbers twenty eight in the first playoff game. One hundred thirty two overall in those six games when that fifteen to sixteen per game rather than twenty to twenty five. I'm just not sure how high the ceiling is. If that receiving role doesn't materialize. Jamie wanted to give us your rankings. Of those four. Chris went miles sanders swift nixon acres acres slipped sanders acres swift acres. I well acres swift sanders. Mixson okay and then data. They're all my top fifteen. Okay give me a quick ranking. Then jamie expand on acres number one acres swift mixing sanders to interesting very jamie europe first acres number one. I just think they're game flow is going to be a lot in his favor. This is going to be team. That's gonna have a chance to win a lot of games. I think his role in the passing game will increase slightly. I don't think it's going to be two point where he's a dynamic pass catcher but i think a full offseasons gonna matter for him tremendously. I do think the quarterback change will help him. I also think that mcveigh's gonna realize what his skill set is expand that Based on what he did in college you know he was a pretty good pass. Catcher for state. I think that will carry over the. Nfl's wall as he's used in more some obvious passing down situations. I don't think they're fully trusted him until the end of the season to be a little bit more pass blocker so just being on the field in those situations with malcolm. Brown gone a veteran that they trusted to be in those spots He's not going to be part of the roster anymore. So i think acres can be a a thirty five to forty catch guy and what will do running the ball. I think that will put him in the top ten range. So that's why. I think he's a break canada's well everybody's got swift second that's interesting debut of sanders. Last go acre swift mix and sanders. And where is he by the way just in your overall running back rankings. He's nineteenth..

"Take a flour Higgins it makes it more easy to trust him as well but again. I don't know just what the volume will be there right okay. Alex smith miss practice but he hasn't been ruled out. He could make basically missed practice. Still play antonio gibson did work on the side. We're still not expecting antonio gibson. Washington safety to shaves her. Everett is out for the season. We preview this game yesterday. I believe did we or is that today. don't remember. I think we preview that game yesterday but does does that matter to you. Jamie the shazier. Does that matter for russell wilson. No i think. Russell wilson is. It's hard to bench. Russell's like i. I don't think you should get you bent and play jalen hurts or rivers or any of these other guys. I know it's it's hasn't been a great stretch of games for russell wilson but you still see what the upside is for him and as we've seen throughout his career sometime he doesn't need a lot of volume to be successful but this is This this is certainly makes a little bit easier. If you wanna trust the receivers you're not benching became cap but we talked about tyler. Lockett where he stands so it could help him as well. Okay karl rudolf missed practice. There's a player that is rostered. Fifteen percent of cbs leagues that is ranked in the top. Twelve that is irv smith. That's assuming off out. Irv smith would have a really good opportunities if you need tight end. Take a look at him. Melvin gordon and phillip lindsay are both questionable. I guess right now. We're expecting them to play against buffalo. On saturday daniel jones may not start. It might be cole mccoy sunday night. Chase edmonds missed practice again. That's interesting. We'll preview that game. Robert woods was limited in practice. He's been upgraded. I think he was out wednesday limited to step in the right direction. Michael thomas is missed practice for the second straight day. Julio jones missed practice. But michael thomas might be the one that we need to talk about here. Are we concerned about michael thomas playing at this point and if he doesn't play dave. What would that mean for tatum. Hill i think the saints are gonna try and run the ball a bunch anyway in the game. Just what do you do against patrick. Mahomes you try and keep them on sideline so you're defenses and have to deal with them. So i'm nervous to use michael thomas. In our he'd be number two receiver for me anyway. If he doesn't play it hurts tastes mill. But i think he's still in the top twelve conversation a quarterback because of.

"I will have travis kelsey. probably the rank of fourteen overall overall. Okay that's not tight end for fourteen fourteen dropped. I are the next three tight ends that we can talk about jimmy. Graham evan ingram. Irv smith junior. The ageless jimmy graham. That's really ageless. Irv smith no herbs young bucket. Well since you guys brought up. Or what about this break out. Performance to receptions ten yards two touchdowns on four targets was his first and second touchdowns of the season. Does he hold any fantasy value for you going forward. You're going to first second and last touchdowns of the season. Because i could see that just as likely as him getting five. This is third tight end one performance. He's touched on dependent. That would be three points that we'd be talking about right now. Yeah he is. The one of the ultimate touchdown robust titans which pretty much defines the position. It's crazy to think that he had two touchdowns and he finished with fifteen fantasy points. Sounds like a rob gronkowski line right there. Where mike evan. Yeah mike evans evans. Yeah you guys evan. Ingram don't look now. What he's heating up five receptions forty eight yards and a touchdown on ten targets. He's now at nine plus targets in three consecutive weeks. Triple digits four weeks. It's pretty crazy but you guys know who is quarterback is unfortunately. Yeah it's daniel jones. yes. I got a fun fact on daniel jones. Fun facts with matt's back. Yes it's been a while. what do you got for us. So since daniel jones has been listed the starting quarterback in twenty nineteen. The giants have won a total five football games. Four of those winds are against washington and they are one in sixteen verse everybody else. That's pretty crazy especially this year because washington's passing defense is actually super login and i think there one win was on daniel jones. I start against the bucks when he was a rookie at my dad. I dunno yeah unreal. That's awful numbers they got washington's number though man when they play washington load your gonna assign them just to play against washington. Then he played the east. I just thought that was kind of a crazy stat. And since you're talking about evan engram. I wanted to To bring that fun fact up thanks. Thanks for bringing in that fun fact. Fun facts with matt all right guys so we had a bunch of breakouts but we also have.

"If. Washington wins if. I have great ones. Hope you don't steal mine. We didn't compare notes on this. Washington wins if Dwayne can get the ball down the field. If you can complete passes down the field, they have a chance to win the football game right now is average completion is four point four yards. Four. Point. Four. It's not good. There's only five lower in the league in those five drew brees is part of a he really has become one of those guys that throws short often. Oddly enough. Captain check down. or Kirk cousins. Is Really leading the League second to only driscoll. He's got he averages completions at nine point seven yards your hit. Some big ones in week one. By the way I'm GonNa let you finish your point but I wanted to interject this for all have tweeted me to say you really haven't talked too much about kirk cousins performance from last week. Have you seen D. Do you know that he had seven balls dropped in that game against the colts all I do chunk place. It's really interesting because I was listening to Zimmer. The other day and Zimmer wouldn't come out and really. You know put it on the quarterback at all and he's done it before easy. No, he has said he had Kirk Scott to be better and he didn't do it at all and I was wondering why and I went back you know to the all twenty two the game casts and quickly went through the condensed version seven big chunk balls right in the hands of guys like busy Johnson and. The IRV Smith and a couple of others and look they were terrible on defense again, they weren't very good offensively and he wasn't really good even when the balls were dropped but this seven chunk place would have changed the game for them. It would put him in the game. They were just flat out drops on perfectly thrown balls. The interceptions was a hail Mary at the end of the first half and the other one was a deflection off what we really should have been caught ball. But anyway, no, it was. It was behind a little bit. It was thrown into double coverage I. Mean it should want those to be incompletions though. agreed but anyway look, he hasn't been. He hasn't been good enough and he they're not going to be a good team be unless he really steps it up because they stink defensively right now but anyway I digress, yeah, he is. He's got a a significantly high number. In that stack category, continue Back to this down the ball, thing of get to this when we get to Cleveland is wealth. Baker Mayfield is eight.

"Maybe, the most impressive team of the day was Seattle. Russell Wilson was thirty one of thirty, five, Oh my God for three, hundred, twenty, two, yards, four touchdowns no picks. That's ridiculous. Thirty one of thirty five metcalf picked up where he left off big day and they destroyed Atlanta and and I think that NFC west is just going to be fascinating all year long Seattle's not going to have a home field advantage. You're not GonNa have that twelfth man thing they got going out there but man, they're they're good and they're a veteran team I I think Seattle. Really is going to be a very difficult to deal with this year that quarterback may be in the prime of his career right now what year nine for him it is e was so special in that game. He was so good. It's just he's. Become. So, much fun to watch play fast the operates and how he's really gotten such a feel for the game. Become what Sean mcvay would call an extension of the offensive coordinator He's in control. It was also game that Matt Ryan threw for four, hundred, fifty they were down I mean, Julio Jones, at Fifty Ridley at one, hundred, thirty gauge to gauge at and fourteen.

"They gave them a four year thirty six million dollar contract. I had two reactions on that number one. I don't think he's going to see the end of that four year contract. And number two nice player approaching thirty November. You just draft Irv Smith junior. I probably would have got rid of Finn. A year earlier rather, that a year or two later that was the first reaction because Kyle Rudolph. It's not terrible is horrible is great. Melt and last year. What do you have? I think he had like sixty receptions, let's say sixty four receptions, six hundred thirty yards and four touchdowns. Good numbers before that five thirty two and eight is big career was eight forty seven touchdowns eighty three receptions. Would have moved on. I would've trade him try to get something back. Maybe the market, though, wasn't that attractive with them being a free agent at the end of the year. Chris, let's exercise right now. 'cause Minnesota one of those teams that they're on the fence. And you wonder are they going to be a playoff team or not a playoff team? They're paying Kirk cousins, guaranteed entire contract. Big time money, and Kirk cousins can't beat any of the big time. Teams a big time spot. Chris Thomas, we'll do all the guests. Or now Minnesota Vikings a playoff team this year. Yes. Okay. Them being one of the top six teams in the NFC. They definitely have the potential to be if everything goes their way. Okay. Green Bay Packers playoff team. I'm going to say no who so Rogers missing the playoffs again. I just I don't like what he has around. Okay. That's fair. Coach already got her to see how about that tornado badgen thought it was a Kelly's, isn't it Kelly's? Okay. I want to say I could be wrong Kelly's up. Maybe. Actually, Dave out of judges paycheck and check out that nice, but. Like can you imagine get NFL job? You're so young. And the first thing that happens right before your I think it was right for his OTA's suffers a ACL in Kelly's whichever one it was, you're right as a Kelly. Data. Squirrel finds not once in a while right Seahawks. Playoff team now. Yes. Really shedding the Seahawks. One of those teams that I was very high the slasher one of those that make the playoffs last year. Adult this year. Big Russell Wilson guy. Hold on. You have the Seahawks that has a playoff team. You're the Vikings in a plastic. That's right. So who you gonna leave out you have, what NFC steam, correct? Yes. So that's three. Right. I'm assuming the Vikings wanted the division. No. So you think the bears. Yeah, that's four the Rams. I think they'll win their division. No, let's see. Yeah. So you already have the Seahawks in the Rams and the Vikings in the bears in and the eagles are Cowboys. Although eagles, okay saints. Yeah. I guess you gotta write that six right there. Yeah. I think that's a fair, fair sector. Falcons bounce back at. All right. That's your now. I could see another eight clunker. Okay panthers. Now what what, what are we doing about him? Oh, yeah. That's Vegas house. No Cowboys, you know, it's, it's going to be one of those NFC sheers where they're all going to be, they're all going to be in the mix. Not the Redskins obvious. The giants not that I think people are down on this whole giants thing because of the perception of the whole quarterback situation. I don't think they're rosters nearly as bad as it out if if you think if you think they're going to be a playoff, contending team. Possibly can you said anything can happen in that division? That means you think Eli Manning's to play well this year, I could see him. He didn't have a terrible year last year. He did that. Did you watch those games? Yes. Of course that was the jets quarterback, you would not be happy. Well, of course, I could check down to saquon Barkley all day to three games this year. I don't know if it's going to be three games. I think they can win a little bit more than three ends. But here's the problem. I have you have saquon Barkley of great player. Jor. You gotta check down, Charlie once again this entire year so that you wasted two years saquon getting all those touches, and then you're going to implement a new quarterback next year, and it's going to be another learning curve. So the first three years of running backs prime wasted. Well that, and if you look at the metrics, and this, and the average is essentially the prime of his career, Todd Gurley there are reports coming out of LA already done being a featured back. I can't wait for football. I'll tell you that they be as fine. It's fun right now. And the mall jacked up with the finals. And this final has been better than I ever would have expected. The Stanley Cup playoffs have been excellent. I think the Bruins to get a win game seven. I talked to Brad Boucher over the weekend. He thought game six was a must win for the blues who are up three two and as good as Bennington has been in the regular season. He has some clunkers in the Stanley Cup final and apply us where, you know, two grasses gonna show up. They've been kind of going back and forth. It's kind of been the whole each kind of jostled back and forth between the games think to get a shop. I don't know bidding chose a big. I think Bennington is a heck of a goaltender you do in this story's. Unbelievable. I saw the blues get some plan on the blues guaranteed victory. Is that funny like I said that like some player the blues Ganji victories, the NBA the NFL or the St Louis dispatch guaranteed. Thank you for bringing that up. How dumb can you be? I understand you gotta get everything lined up all your ducks in a row. I think that's right. Expression. I never used that before. I sound like an old man. Now are all your ducks in a row. So you get that all lined up and yell, you advertisers, and some Alica published or the photos of it got released leaked that's terrible. Because you know first Cassidy's bringing that into locker room they probably had a field day with that, right. I remember one time. Thirty nine. The parade route for the eagles, and everyone has a parade route scheduled before the Super Bowl because you have to get that stuff prepared happens feed, his after the game bell checkout, his hands on that. And he read the team the parade route before the game. I remember tyrod Harrison and everyone prepares for the parade route. But in the moment, it's macabre. Gotta run through wall forever. That was back when the patriots needed motivation. Oh, I think you all teams could use motivation. Look at this year. These motivation because rob Parker said they weren't good anymore. I think rob Parker. He makes a career of getting nothing right with the patriots, but just saying they're gonna lose always wrong. A lot of people in the media made a pretty nice career from selves, doing exactly that. Yeah. The patriots are gonna coaster another twelve and four this year. It's going to be going to be shocked me go eleven to five kind of say. Wow. Prediction. Take who was the blues player that, that guaranteed victory. Can you find that out real quickly? Some reason I just searched it and I got nothing but I saw it on Twitter if you see something on Twitter has to be true, right the bait, but I saw something that blues player guarantee victory, I was reading that on on online before. During the NBA finals game. So could've just kind of messed together. And the fact that I have you got a response, it tells me that Chris Thomas can't find it either man. Let's seen anything pop up immediately, and we will continue our search okay? But yet that this patch story if you're a Saint Louis blues fan. And you end up in this final meadow, man, that's going to be. That's gonna be tough. That's going to be very, very tough to overcome. Anyway, though I can't wait for that game seven I can't wait on Wednesday night. You think the Bruins play Gloria if they win. Q magic that, you know, what, that would be like, remember when judge played New York, New York. Oh, I remember and then. After the Red Sox beat the Yankees. They were blasted on that boombox. They came back and lost sixteen to three or something ugly. All right. Fun show. But all the guests showman. Tim ROY and also called Gibson from the twins great job out of adding jour-, and Thomas has the most necked Ayla back tomorrow. Be so be in Washington DC doing the show. So keep a lot for that.

"As a case where you know, it is what it is. But you know, they're going to have to start moving somebody's guys. So that's that's basically where I stand on Seattle. You know, they could go a couple of different directions here. But Harry makes the most sense here in my opinion at number thirty again another potential for trading down. But we have the Packers. I'm going to project them for Chris Lindstrom offensive guard out of Boston College, Boston College, really did not have a whole lot of quality players, but Lynch room definitely was one of those standouts where you could see that he was making some plays on a nut. So talented team. So I think he ends up going into the first round here. At thirty one another place where this could be an easy trade down. We have the Rams in place. I could see them train down this pick easily. There's no question about that. My whole thing is. Basically the Rams. They need Rosser death. So they could easily trade this one down and get some more picks. But if I'm gonna make a pig here. I'm going to say that the Rams get Eric McCoy center out of Texas. Am they could also take Jenkins outta Mississippi State who's also center slash guard. The Rams just need some more Ross's effort at offensive line that tends to be undersized and got worn down towards the end of the year. And it started to show cracks into the playoffs as well as Super Bowl. So I would say, you know, getting pushed around in the play offs is more than the sign that you got to make some changes on the offensive line. Even if they won't be ready next year the year after definitely. And to round out the first round we've got the defending champs New England Patriots. I think they try to begin the process of replacing gronk, which they can't. But you know, as close as possible given their options here, I think they draft Irv Smith junior the tight end Alabama. No one's going to be able to do Kate with gronk and do from pass blocking and catching standpoint, but Irv Smith junior should be able to stretch to feel from passing standpoint. So gives Brady and option down the field and his blocking has gotten better to the point where he would be serviceable in most situations without having to bring in a different tight end. So I think that makes the most sense. All right. So that does it for the first round. Again. I think you know, from the takeaways that I have for this mock draft, you're gonna see teams make trades. I think they're trades abound. Coming for quarterbacks whether the giants get Rosen or the raiders giants do something funky with Derek like there are things that are going to happen tonight, which rates going down. That's just my take on things. The Daniel Jones fiasco could explode on any number of teams in the first round. You know, if fell fan, I don't want my team to be the one to jump on that grenade. I'm pretty clear in my assessment that he is not an NFL QB. But he's going to get drafted like one, nonetheless and a high pig nonetheless. I just think it's a it's a complete mistake. But hey. Apparently, there are people making getting paid six figures to make that call and they think that that's the guy. I just I'm just looking at it. I'm saying it's whoever made whoever's going to make that call is definitely going to regret it, and it'll probably cost them their jobs sooner or later. So that's going to do it for the show. I'm going to get back into of the other topics at some point this week. But hopefully, you guys get something out of the draft. Obviously watch the draft Thursday night or just follow along with your pigs as they come in. They match up with the mock drafts, I've given you here. So at least you have some talking points to talk amongst your friends if you had a draft party. So that's all for now. Folks dig it, easy and have a good one..

"Let's say Sean Jackson's perfect comp that that's pretty much on target as far as the what he was coming out of Cal perfect comment in regards your cop man flesh about that. Hey, let's flip. Let's flip it on the other side of this in the in the in the welterweight division of wide receivers. Todd. I got in Kiel hairy AJ Brown. Then you have to Johnson might qualify. We got some big guys in this. Who is the guy you want to K D K Metcalf in AJ Brown? Both big dudes Metcalfe's even bigger than Brown. I was surprised to see him in person this year when we sat down with him. He is a big. I mean, you almost looks like a tight end, and he can he can run and play if he's healthy. I think he's an underrated player in this class. But you go down the list those two guys from all from ole miss JJ or Siga Whiteside from from Stanford's a big wide receiver Riley ridley's, I wouldn't call him. I think he's like six two or something. But he's at thicker guy who can put him the slot and create some mismatch is there. You've got came Butler, another probably six foot four wide receiver out of Iowa State and the kill hurry. Like, you mentioned from Arizona state. Kelvin harm in the underclassmen who came out from North Carolina State all those guys are in that six two two six five range talking about a really big group of of wide receivers. All of them could wind up going in the first four rounds. So they're not just big guys. They're they're talented guys that we're all productive if their respective schools at Paris Campbell's going to buy six one two eight Todd. So he's not a little guy from Ohio State and Emmanuel Butler northern Arizona's the kids go late probably for the lumberjacks came back at a really good year. Six three six four to twenty a mention executive OC at UAB's about six three to fifteen to eighteen. So there are a lot of those guys in this draft to the big receivers Keelan bosses a big kid Atta cow Davis. A lot of big guys. David manual speed. He's not he's not thick. But the Missouri receiver he is a burner, and he he's tall and lean. But he's he can go up and get it. It's it's just funny. This is an interesting class. Todd. You know, we didn't even mention Terry MacLaurin, the guy who is absolutely flying down in mobile and practice you saw him. I think you noted something that they had him. They had him time running twenty two miles an hour, which would have been the fan. Last time. I checked the next gen stats would have been the fastest time in the NFL this season. That's absolutely flying. You're talking about twenty two point two miles an hour. He was the fastest player at the senior bowl this year, zebra technology. I think it was talking about some of these guys that can fly I thought about it with McLaren. But it's like, you wonder why nobody's ever returning punts McLaren's, catching the punts. I mean, he's always down. There is a gun or hey Mel wanted to look at the tight ends also weapons, obviously we have a couple at Iowa TJ Hopkinson, no offense. We've talked about them a little bit. I'm interested to think about where where Irv Smith is gonna go who came out early from Alabama. Just because of the way that offense work. He didn't pile up tons and tons of targets just because of the greatness, they have it wide receiver. Obviously, Josh Jacobs caught a few balls, whereas Irv Smith gonna land when this is all said and done I think he could be depending upon that's the thing with the combine for so many underclassmen is going to be really important..

"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.

"Never felt like they were overwhelmed, talent wise. This was this was a very even match up. Just moving the football just red zone issues for for Bama. They go eleven place. Forty five yards and kick a field goal. And I don't think it's been lost in the shovel and expand talked enough. A lot. But that false start on the goal line. There. Brad was guys is almost akin to remember the Oklahoma game. I think Irv Smith had a touchdown. And it was called back because not enough guys were on the line of scrimmage. They wind up kicking a field goal. And then that allowed Oklahoma eventually cover the number in that game. Although it was never in doubt in the semi-final. This is almost a similar feel like you get that touchdown. And maybe the whole complexion of that game changes at them. Absolutely. You just got the sense that like early in the game. Okay. Another key moment went to Clemson. And then and then another one, and then they started to gain momentum. And you know, what I think they realized sometime probably in the second quarter if not early third quarter if they really could create distance from Alabama and that the ABA was asked after the game. When did you break there will I think it was sometime in that in that period of time where they just weren't executing. And Clemson was and obviously Lawrence was just brilliant. I think in the second and third quarters that was a huge difference in the game. And so. Obviously the final score looks very lopsided. And it was a definitive victory. But you look at some of the critical places coaches always mentioned for five place. I mean Notre Dame to their credit. They came out of the Monday night feeling pretty good because you know, Brian Kelly said after that game. And no one really believed him that they were for or five plays away..

"Can take advantage of especially in the secondary. You can anticipate what the play call will be. If you pay attention can Trevor Lawrence in his mind be able to do what calibrate it the second is Trevor Lawrence his legs. He's not as fast as liberal. Shifty, but he is the separately fast because he's a long strider. Alabama's pass coverage often includes matchups those underneath which means that the underneath cover guys will turn their back to the quarterback. And chase receivers in man coverage with they're not looking at the quarterback Trevor Lawrence these to see it and he hit just like Kyla Murray did and then defensive tackle Christian Wilkins. I'm sure he's tired of hearing about how great quitting of Alabama. He's tired of quitting Williams winning the outlet trophy getting all the glory getting all the publicity, and he wants to show the college football world one last time that he is the guy Williams as Trevor match, I marquess to share our college football. I've game show from our Mercedes Benz vans field set on ESPN radio and the ESPN apple swing to Alabama. What a twelve year run for Nick Sabin, you take away that first year. He was seven and six how about this one thirty nine and fourteen that's a nine ten winning percentage five national titles and speaking of the number five back Brandon. Words five things to know about the crimson tide. Alabama is one went away from its thirteenth national championship of the poll era which began in nineteen thirty six next. Most is Notre Dame with eight it would also be the sixth title in ten years for the tide. The current shorter span for any program to win six national titles is nineteen years by Alabama from nineteen sixty one to seventy nine under Paul bear. Bryant Alabama is the only program in the last one hundred years to reach January with no more than one loss in eight consecutive seasons. The only longer streak in major college history belongs to Washington from nineteen. Oh, eight to nineteen sixteen when the huskies were playing only seven games in a season. Nick Sabin already has twenty four wins against teams ranked in the top five of the AP poll, which is six more than any coach in history over the last four seasons. He's ten and one against top five opposition, including tight end, Irv Smith, Alabama has five receivers with more than sixteen yards per reception. And at least six touchdown catches since two thousand there is no other F B S team. It's had more than three players reached those marks in the same season. Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence ranks twentieth. Nationally in completion percentage, but his one hundred twelve and completion percentage against non blitz pressure. The Alabama defense leads the nation in pressure rate without blitzing. Brad Edwards, and let's get back to Trevor manage and swing it over to your X factors tonight for Alabama tight end. From Alabama Irv Smith, he is one of the best receiving tight ends of the country. He'll be the NFL next year. He averages seventeen yards per catch. A remember that championship game a couple of years ago? OJ Howard who was destined to become a first round draft choice of the Tampa Bay. Buccaneers was largely an afterthought for Alabama in that game until they finally hit him in the second half of the sixteen yard touchdown pass. I don't think they'll let Irv Smith go that long without being factor in this game. Number two, they need improvement from freshman corner. Patrick ser tan number two..

"Those the other part that people have been talking about Alabama schedule, and it's nothing you can do about it when you have a schedule. But I know, and you know, having watched Alabama practice they get challenged every day against better players in practice than they usually say in game. So I don't think the fact that they haven't played anybody's going to bother them near as much as maybe playing in tiger stadium. That's certainly a tub venue. But they get challenged every week. This all week is help them from the standpoint of being able to go back, and look what was good for him. And the problems they've had and I look forward to run the ball affectively here. Because if I'm a deep coach got to stop this passing game with two and you start doing that. Then that's when they break these explosive plays, but it's a great venue for SEC for the national press corps, everything but Alabama to me unless they just make a few mistakes. I think it's. It's going to be hard for them to lose this game. As a former quarterback coach. And you were certainly a good one in college. Give us your view of two and in what he has to be concerned about tomorrow because. Yeah, no, he sees that good defense in practice. And we know what he did didn't land. But it is tomorrow night going to be any different for him. Or do you think it it's just another 'nother Saturday on the schedule? Well, you know, he's had kind of six six or seven walks in the park and he hasn't played in the fourth quarter. But he is a guy that's played big. When they they needed him against us last year in a championship game. He tremendously accurate quarterback this an gift for no one winded to anticipate the brakes, he just got a really good feel for throwing guys open. And he's got some human jets going down to feel and then Irv Smith on a crossing routes, and he's got the threat of play action and very good offensive line. But I think the big key for him is he just believes so much in himself. Whether he's planning to you. Lele or whether he's talking to the press, whatever he's doing. He just feels like he can do it. And that that's a great trait for any quarterback. I'll tell you another quarterback that we won't talk about on SEC much that I think's very comparable to to is kinda Murray for oh, you he's having a big year two and these two guys just show you what a dual threat quarterback in due on teams score prolific amount of points talking to coach Jim Don in coach. Let's talk about strategy. Devon, white is not in the first half. That is certainly not a new story. But it's but it's a could be a factor. If you're over on the offensive side as you've been so many times in my Kalac's leash chair consulting with Nick save and try and trying to figure out. Does that matter or not take us in that room? And let us know what what do you think they've been talking about all week? Well, there's another good key for Nick that I think he deserves a lot of credit while seven coaches last year, two different jobs some to head jobs like Pruitt going to Tennessee, but he's rebuilt his staff with two coordinators and they've been really fun shooting. Extremely well. I think when you have a player down, you always look at trying to make sure you tack whoever taking his place, but you don't wanna get so consumed in that that you forget about using your stuff too. I think this that LSU can use this as a big plus for some way, they can find a way to kind of blend together and make up for that loss..
