Philadelphia Eagles Sign Super Bowl 47 MVP Joe Flacco
"Big news coming out of philly. Yesterday joe flacco agreeing to a contract with the eagles. It's a one year deal. Three and a half million dollars. Guaranteed the opportunity to win. Four million more in incentives. Now what does this mean. As far as the eagles and their draft plans remember. They only have one quarterback on the roster until this and that's jalen hurts and they have the six pick in the draft and as you see mel kiper junior and his latest mock has been taking the superstar receiver tamar chase from lsu which would be awfully knife or any quarterback that they have there but so does this mean mel again. It is not your expectation mel with us field. Yates as well here today. It does this mean and again. You're you're mock has them taking chase anyway but the signing flacco does that in your view. Close the door on any possibility that they draft a quarterback at number six. I think they would even going in before flacco. You think about. Joe flacco wise ian eagle thinking about the baltimore raven connection with the philadelphia eagles. Joe douglas and joe flacco who drafted where the want super bowl with the baltimore ravens. So there's that always that connection you can always go to. Guys are picked up later in their career. So for joe. Douglas bringing in a joe flacco you think about what he was doing with the jets in terms of the situation there. And then you've got the philadelphia eagles their same type of thing that raven connections. So i think when you look backing up jalen hurts right now. I don't think he's a threat. I think jalen that guy get jomar chase and go four with him and help jalen hurts and then reassess after the year's over that's what they will do that influence with the raven organization in philadelphia as a factor. I think it's a factor throughout the green and there always is joe. Flacco is a good backup came in the league. Same your matt ryan did and that ryan slow playing great football of course super bowl but Joe flacco did. But i think it's a good situation to have joe flacco there behind. The jalen hurts. Jalen hurts gets hurt. Your season's not over joke and still play. But i think this is jalen team right now. I thought it was carson wentz's team that didn't work out. But i think if you get your march help jalen hurts and then you make your decision air to this year whether in the twenty twenty two draft you have to think about drafting. A young quarterback failed. Same question to you. Does this mean in your mind that the eagles are out of the quarterback market at six. It does not greedy in. Here's a simple reason. Why i agree with everything else that i'm going to double back to that in just a moment. I just have long believed that if you are convinced. A player can be a franchise quarterback that if he's available at six. You have to at least consider it. If you're philadelphia. Now that being said all the indications this offseason from the previous reporting from more about the eagles plan to build around jalen hurts this year plus the signing of joe flacco which at least gives them a veteran option at the very least relatively modest priced by the way three point five million dollars. There are so many signs at the plan. This year is to find ways to make jalen hurts better so i still believe that ultimately the eagles are gonna be in prime position to land one of the best pass catchers in this year's draft a quarterback should not be entirely ruled out. And that's just me having seen the league long enough to know that sometimes teams do things the catch us by surprise even if they should not have caught us by surprise
Raiders make surprise pick in latest Mel Kiper Jr. mock draft
"Mock draft three point. Oh is available on. Espn plus right. Now and here. We go no surprise at the top. Trevor lawrence has been there and we'll be there for the moment and started to the moment. That pig is made. He's going jacksonville. And that's not going to change at number. Two mel projects the jets to stay put and select quarterback zach wilson who would be the team's highest drafted quarterback since they took joe nemeth thousand nine hundred sixty five at number three. We have a trade that panthers would move up from number eight to select justin fields from ohio state carolina getting its quarterback of the future miami. Picking up more prime picks. And the falcons make it four for four to begin the draft selecting their quarterback of the future trae lanes. Should it go this way. It would be the first time ever that quarterbacks go with each of the first four picks in the draft. We take a look at the rest of mel's top ten. After the four consecutive quarterbacks we see some other names you will get to know. Kyle pitch superstar tight end. More pass catchers jamarcus devante smith jail waddell notably absent on this screen. Max jones the fifth quarterback in this first round the star from alabama who mel projects. Going number fifteen to the new england patriots and let's start there because mel we spoke about this the last time you broke this down for us. You had max jones going considerably higher namely number eight overall. Why do you see this drop. Greenwich carolina eight with matt rule had max jones at the senior bowl practices where he was exceptional right. So you figure carolina's stuck at eight. They would look at mack. Jones new england and fifteen is built. Bellichik nick sabin connection and obviously looking at a quarterback to get back to. Maybe the tom brady days. Okay get your that type of quarterback which is what mack jones is his style and the way he goes about his business as a pocket passer so once carolina in my mach three point. Zero was moving up to get justin field. Mack jones next opportunity to come off. The board for me would be new england at fifteen.
Ohio State's E.J. Liddell shares threats, vulgar insults received after Oral Roberts loss
"Ohio State, A two seed took a first round lost Orel Roberts of 15 seed. Roberts became the 9th 15, seeded to defeat a two seed in the round of 64. The one is the largest N C a a tournament upset since 16 seed you, NBC upset one seed Virginia and 2018 as a 20.5 point underdog. Of course, the outcome of the game was a big deal for both teams. Ohio State forward EJ Ladell led his team with 23 points and became on Lee, the second Ohio State player with at least 20 points, 10 rebounds and five assists. And an N C a a tournament game. He's also the first ever Big 10 player with those numbers since 2000 and 12. The guy's definitely one of us use most valuable players, but he missed a free throw in the final seconds of the contest. On Friday, Ladell tweeted screenshots of messages that were sent to him after the loss with people threatening his life and saying they wish he was dead. Here's Mel Kiper and Katie George. Don't with it. Everybody deals with it in the public eye and EJ Lovell is a young kid who shouldn't have to deal with it. But that's the reality of social media. Now that's the world these kids live in, and we all live in now. I didn't have to deal with that. When I was growing up, they do. That's just the world as I say you live in and the authorities have to deal with this the best they can, But it is something they should obviously investigating will, But it's just unfortunate that everybody that's in the public ideals with this and that's unfortunate, really unfortunate that kids have to but That's life in the world we live in right now. Unfortunately, it is, you know, social media has become so prevalent and so much a part of our lives into your point knows people in the media. We're often told by higher ups and bosses just Don't look at it. Don't listen to it. Just move on about your day, but to your point when people are saying mean things and threatening you like they did Ladell. It's really hard to just tuck it away and move on. A lot of times. You want to respond, but you also don't want to incite anything further. That's something that's reported Katie which he did report it. Yeah, exactly. And for this situation, I'm actually proud of Ladell for not just standing by for responding and screen shotting and calling these people out for the vile things that they said, and and hopefully they're reprimanded for for doing so because it has no place in sports.

"Make the deal and this has been a story from day one. Nick caserio is in there right now. Trying to fix this relationship can talk all day about whether or not he can get that done but the houston perspective right now is. We are keeping watson here. He's not going anywhere to start assessing value mel. Come back to you. And obviously it's been a while since he evaluated shawn watson but we can all tell he's a top three or four quarterback in the nfl so should the jets at number to be willing to give up whatever it might take the dolphins three be willing to give up whatever it might take. Are you in favor of the huge sale if you will of all. These draft picks to get shawn watson and carolina would be in that mix to agree. I would give up. Whatever it took to get the shawn watson twenty five years of age great quarterback one of the top three or four in the league moving forward. He's going to keep sending that you know what you already have. He's dealt with versus san. He's had a bad team around him. They still put up great numbers. The shawn's done with superman only could do and right and so yes i would give up. Whatever draft choices. It took to get the shawn watson if i'm the jets if a miami if i'm carolina yes. I would send a lot of draft choices in that texas vicinity to houston texans organization. Dan looks to me. Like you were agreeing. There's no question about it. I think there's shawn watson is one of the four or five best quarterbacks in football and he's only getting better and makes a great point that we've seen him succeed in adversity imagined shawn watson going to a place that is well run. We think that the jets have a good general manager and the dolphins have a good german general manager. We know the dolphins have a good head coach. And we think the jets are going to imagine shawn watson instability because he's been excellent in chaos. And that's why at the end of the day when you get your quarterback because as much as i love sam darnold there. I'm intrigued by zack. We'll center of fields or something like that. You know deshaun watson great. You don't think he's going to be good. You're not projecting him to be good. You know he's good. If the and. I thought mike team made a great point two weeks ago. You put the dolphins and the jets against each other and you go man if we don't get him that team's going to and that's why at the end of the day. Those teams should be very aggressive and houston got a wakeup houston's got to pay attention. He's not playing.

"Jones didn't have judy and he didn't have well. He didn't have waddell after october. Twenty fourth yet. He was lights out so again. I think devante the route running the precision the competitive this Had a couple of drops and ironically one drop in the national championship. Game led to him getting hurt at not. You know bobbled that ball. He doesn't get her but Devante to me is a special entity. I compare them to marvin harrison. I think he's closer as good as in the. Nfl is what marvin harrison was. Whether it's the dolphins whether it's the eagles whoever gets davante smith is going to be awfully happy. You mention mag jones. And he's someone entering the season back last spring we weren't even sure he'd be the starter What what do you hear from your sources and scouts and gm's about him. He's a tough one fall. You know. because he was so great. I mean he caught it. Did what borough did. He went from borough at least played the whole year. But it wasn't nearly what he was that final year at lsu. All that great town around him the difference with is choking beach you with his legs running. The ball can beat defense. He did it against alabama. The did it in the. Nfl was affected running ball. That's not mac jones game. So i think there's a difference there but always seventeen starts from jones. That's a concern question about that You know the busy fit the way the game play today. Well tom brady won a super bowl and he forty three years of age and drew. Brees was still winning. Forty forty one. So i say that did that. The pocket passer. That doesn't run as a dinosaur. I think is is not accurate. I think tom brady proof that so to me. Yes you would prefer to have a more mobile quarterback But i think matt jones is accuracy. All levels was unbelievable. He's incredibly intelligent. He's a winner so competitive He's he checks a lot of boxes except for he doesn't run the great forty great athleticism. What we said the same thing about tom brady when he came out of michigan. I every every every every gm and every head coach look at things differently. But you know this may be a record in may not be but it seems like i'm seeing somebody alabama players in these monographs. When when you're when you're drafting a nick sabin player does that. Does that mean anything to these guys or are they just looking at the individual means a lot. Paul i mean when you see as many new england patriots patriot Alabama players new england the fellowship strapped more than anybody who got ten not outs alabama alabama. Lsu and nick was there so this. Is nick sabin players. That bella chick drafted I have six going in the first round with naci harris going early second. I had nausea going the buffalo and the last mock so that would have been seven paul. So yeah. Nobody else has more than to think about that. No other team no other program. Lsu to penn state has to miami florida to virginia tech and florida to alabama. Six could have been seven. Sec s. twelve next best conference at the big ten with five in the sec would five. So that's why the sec dominates and then alabama dominates. I think when you look at the alabama players. There's coach so well it's such a professional. Nfl atmosphere down there with everything they do used to be. People say well. They're coached up there to the point where they have no upside. Well that's been proven wrong so again Every every program is gonna have guys that don't live up to the height but our bama has supplied the nfl with a tremendous amount of talent to just to go back to mac jones. Ball that consensus is. He's going to go pretty high top fifteen to england picks fifteen you could give them their You give them the carolina eight. Obviously if they end up with shawn watson. he's not going to go there but they were with him at the senior bowl matt role was and i don't know how matt rule could come away from the weekend mobile very impressed. If if you like jones going in he loved them coming out and we've seen something interesting this year to two recently fired. Nfl coaches head coaches on sabin staff Realized that this is maybe a better question for next year. But i'm interested in in how that plays into this because you just mentioned the professional atmosphere it. It's it's been ratcheted up even more now. Yeah no question about it. I think when you look at what with bringing in the coaching staff that he put together paul and he's always been able to do that. You know bringing even a butch jones and having him do eat it bringing against sock when he brought him in He just wants these knowledgeable guys who are coming in with something to prove. They are trying to reestablish themselves. And i think he he knows that i'm giving you an opportunity to get back to where you want to go and look what happened with sars. Now he's head coach texas. And you see that with a lot of the assistance. He was able to bring in butch jones now. Head coach at the collegiate level. So it's great opportunity for people. Were kind of you know they they. Hey o'brien had shawn watson. And the houston texans. Twenty four nothing in the second quarter last year In two thousand and nineteen against kansas city chiefs and all of a sudden. Now look where they are the hopkins trade and everything went went awry so I think you try to reestablish these coaches and they come in with with an idea that hey i'm gonna work hard and i'm going to do what it takes to get myself back to the top or where i wanna be so it's work paul. And it's allowed the allow these coaches like. I say to to reestablish themselves and move on from there to where they wanted to be which is head coaches you on a no hope. We were able to talk again as you get closer to the draft. But it's just amazing forty three years. That is an extraordinary career. My friend that's a. That's a really stunning football. We got a new name this week. I just found out yesterday was a podcast now senior. Nfl draft analyst when you become a senior analyst. There you go paul well. There are some advantages. Hey i know the feeling well thank you very much. It's great to have you on. Wow what a treat. That as i i. I do remember vaguely the first time. I talked to mel ill. I was early in my radio career. And this guy was literally doing it out of his His broom closet in baltimore and look at him. Now we'll take a break more to come more of your phone calls at eight five five two four two seven two eight five and more.
Who is QB2 in 2021 NFL Draft?
"It would have been fully justified and with that we welcome you back as always live from the seaport district appear seventeen brought to you by chase. I green this get up and we have a huge our coming your wine. It starts with this. It's a quarterback sneak mc shays make board is in and wait till you see the first four picks. He's with us live to break down off the top. Then wait a minute. What did russell say. Is he talking about getting sri. Didn't from seattle the wild ride in. Nfl history continues. And then we'll tell you how the shawn watson saga plays out and what it will mean for every team in the nfl. All that and more as we get out with you when this hour which starts right now with todd mcshay post super bowl mock draft. It's available right now on espn plus all it. It's fascinating a number one. That's no big surprise. He's got trevor lawrence going number one to urban meyer and the jaguars. But here's where it gets interesting. He also has quarterbacks going to three and four at two he has the jets taking. Byu's zack wilson who has been rising up. Everybody's draft what he has been be talk of the nfl draft process so far at three overall. He's projecting trade the panthers moving up from eight to take north dakota state's train lance to be their quarterback of the future which leaves ohio states justin field sitting there. Four and mcshea has the falcons taking him fields the second highest total qbr in college football season and then jones sliding down a little bit later to make five quarterbacks in the first round in there he is the man with the mic board. It is mcshea and it's awesome. Let's start with this todd. We all understand. Trevor lawrence going number one. Nothing even to discuss. How firmly planted in. Your mind is zack. Wilson right now as the number two quarterback in this draft. I think very firmly. The first thing i do when the season is over and a govan studied the top quarterbacks. Because i know that's what we're going to talk about for the majority of this process leading up to the draft and after lawrence. There's a little bit of a gap and then at zack wilson. And then there's a gap between gods trey lance from north dakota state and justin feels from ohio state. So i think he is clearly the number two quarterback in this class. The question becomes greenie. Is that the jets taking two or the jets gonna move out and allow a team like a carolina to that number two spot to take him. And that all depends on the domino's in terms of the veteran quarterbacks right now where does shawn watson wind up carson wentz. We know is going to get moved to chicago indianapolis. I think joe douglas. The general manager is kind of waiting. And seeing some of these other quarterbacks go and he's fielding phone calls he's not aggressively making calls but fielding calls to see maybe if they can move sam darnold and if they do exactly since the pick for the jets at number two and if not as i said i think the jets will move outta to and wilson will still wind up being that number number two overall pick in this class. I grew the. I've been saying for a while. I agree with you completely. He'll be number two. The question is who winds up making the peck. Then the other part of this is. I'm old enough to remember a time when we wondered if justin fields might supplant trevor lawrence as the number one draft now all of a sudden these the fourth quarterback off the board. How did that happen. You go back. And study games against indiana northwestern. And then the college football playoff national championship game against alabama. He completed around fifty two percent of throws with five interceptions. Those games in my opinion. You look at it physically. He's big. he's sturdy strong who mobile. He's got a big arm all the traits that you look for. But he likes to see his receivers. Come open and get stuck on that. I read very frequently. So you compare him with trae. Lance and i have identical grades on the to train. Lance didn't play the level of competition. Didn't play as many games as is justin fields but i think he processes the game a little quicker in terms of going from his first into a second and third and seeing the entire field. So it won't surprise me if it feels is third quarterback off the board. But i think they're kind of bunched together in that third tier of quarterbacks behind lawrence wilson and then the other two and then i want to ask you about the guy that you currently have fifth because i'm a regular listener of the first draft podcast and so i'm listening the other day to you and field. Yates and mel kiper talking about what was going on at the senior bowl and everyone is raving about matt jones. Your buddy mel had max jones moving this thing and i believe he has him sort of. I believe he hasn't projected higher than you have in projected. What do you see for mack. Jones as this process goes on the fifth quarterback in the first round. Well i think what's going to happen. He's matt jones is going to benefit from the fact that these four quarterbacks are gonna come off the board quickly and it's probably going to be cut because of trades moving up. I have matt jones going number twelve overall right now in a i had chicago moving up to twelve in san francisco. Moving back to twenty we have to see where carson wentz go. It does go to

Maybe went number one remember. He's ignoring me caja. He's ignoring me. I'm getting all this. Love are pretty well for me. Oh thank you it was it was it was okay. That wasn't exactly how i planned for that to go. Let's move forward. Let's talk about jerry judy's quarterback at alabama that tongo via loa who has gotten an extraordinary amount of attention and struggled down the stretch last year. What do you need to see from him this this year for the evaluation. Well obviously stay healthy but i the arm strength got something you need to improve on as we move forward and it happens with quarterbacks once they get in the n._f._l. It happens with kids in college too. You'll see improvement. Area has all the receivers that you need certainly has the talent around him. Spectacular year the schedule of the schedule awesome. Mary much cooperates as well. I think <hes> you know to just a little bit more velocity greeny and he certainly we know could be in line and we'll be in line to be the number one pick overall now. He'll be battling not we would assume with justin herbert the kid from oregon that we were just talking about. We will see him saturday night on a._b._c. and this huge game against auburn which will be very interesting. He made an interesting decision could have come out last year. Do you see that decision paying off for him this coming year i was the only decision it was very wise is this. He did not look like a first round draft choice last year. I think he will this year. He may look like the number one pick overall physically. He looks that part. He's gotta be more accurate on a consistent consistent basis. Make better decisions get that out of his hand. All comes together for herbert with his skill set he will challenge the be the number one pick in the draft s. and challenge to a quarterback taken but where they are right now is the way i grade kids greenie. I don't worry about what they will be. I worry about what they are. That's why the big board is. The stock exchanged moving up moving down right now. Just does not deserve to be in that top five but he certainly could be if that improvement takes place all right and so two and herbert have gotten a lot of attention engine gimme other quarterbacks that we should be keeping an eye on that could be moving up on these draft boards well jacobson at washington transfer from georgia. This is his year. This is his time to shine. He has the receivers the line. He's got a running back. He's got everything in place now the big year he's got a big time size big time arm talent. He could certainly rise very highly up the aboard and certainly you'll get a guy like jordan.

You got four new receiving these these three new receivers new tight end four new offensive linemen and your top running backs gone and you gotta play l._s._u.

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
Jaguars release Blake Bortles costing $16.5 million in dead cap space
"Blake Bortles was released by the Jaguars released. Not traded just dropped over sixteen million dead money counted against his team, and they still drop them. Now. Let's go back five years to the two thousand fourteen draft. Where was Bortles picked first round number three at the time. What did they say fantastic size NFL body type franchise caliber quarterback Mel kiper gave the Jaguars overall a for their draft that year and a Bleacher report was more cautious. They wrote Bortles is not nearly as ready to step in and play from day one as teddy Bridgewater is and he may not have the. Upside that Johnny Manziel does a him. Both Bridgewater and Manziel are currently looking for jobs Bridgewater, perhaps his third team Menzel just to job period. And now, so as Bortles all this proves is that there was no such thing as a guarantee in drafting a player and all the pre-draft type is just a lot of hot air designed to keep TV show sports, talk radio and scouting websites in clover year, round Bortles is exhibit a improving you don't know an NFL quarterback until he becomes an NFL quarterback five years ago is team used a top three pick five years later. He's cutting costing them
Hour 2: Mel Kiper Jr's NFL draft predictions
"Mel kiper junior into the show. What's up melt? Hey, guys, how you doing? Good. All right. So number one overall. Mel you have Nick Bosa going to the cardinals. You've heard the things cliff Kingsbury has said about collar Murray, he's a big fan. But he's also said Josh Rosen is our guy. So how confident are you about the cardinals going Bosa at one do guys with a mock draft you call around and you get different opinions. You try to build some type of a consensus. Steve drafted Josh Rosen. I thought he held his own for getting no help you seems like the players in that locker ROY believe in him you move forward. Josh Rosen would have a higher grade than any quarterback in this draft. If you go basically apple apple, and you try to reject a year with a year experience where they would be. But I think they're happier with Josh Rosen than they would have been a quarterback including Tyler Perry. Tyler Murray is still five nine five ten and size body type or still some things at the combine and pro day, and he's going to have to answer to give up on Josh Rosen and go that direction. I don't see it happening based on the people have spoken to. So I went with both. Over Josh Allen. That's going to be the debate the trait outta there. Do you tape boasts Allen right now, it seems like Bosa may be the lead who knows internally with their thinking. But trading out of there for team. Let's go out and get Askins. Maybe something maybe interested in listening to Mel. I'm very surprised by that draft. Order Nick Bosa is the is the foolproof, right? He's going to be a stud, but people felt that way about Nick last year. Sorry, Bradley Chubb last year, he's the best Pash rusher by so much you might as well, get them. There question marks about everyone including including. Cleveland Browns quarterback acre Mayfield, including Gregor Mayfield. Sam darnold everyone. So they're going to go, Bradley choke with not only didn't go Bradley Chubb. They went to the talented quarterback, you know, out of the big twelve who they had questions about right? Isn't that Keiler Murray this year, and isn't Nick Bosa basically, Bradley up? Well, Trump had a great year and shove ended up going to a team that utilize him and put him out there with Miller and he's a tremendous player. Tremendous young man, he's going to have a huge future and the ratio that I think when taken the war, Denzel word overcharged was what Cleveland was kind of debating there. Do you take the corner the pass rusher and put him opposite Garrett? They thought Ogbeh would come on. He didn't. But that was a decision obeyed word played well till he got hurt. I think we look at at Murray Murray is different in that he's five nine and a half. He's not six foot and a half to twenty like Baker Mayfield was and is I think that body type when you think about we've never seen before we've seen Baker Mayfield types. Okay. Before we haven't seen Cuyler Murray fight go this SARS, no conflict Kyle Murray. Guys. There's none. So I think we've talked. The number one pick four pick even a first round pick for that matter. I've at thirteen to Miami you've never seen this ever happened before. So I think some answers may become at the combine when you see him as he looked like he can hold up. It looks those guys in the eye. Does he looked like an NFL quarterback putting on a board? You know, it's football IQ should be really good the hand size people. Always look at that nine is that is that there you can do it or you can't will see hand size with collar Murray comes in at so still some things that'd be determined the answers. I got back from that question. This week is was leave Cuyler Murray at thirteen don't move him up that seems to be fair for right now in the process is that you say that Mel just this morning. We learned we got some news. Peter King was speak into Lincoln Riley, the coach at OU, and he said that ninety one percent of the past column Murray through from the pocket while at OU last season ninety one percent of this passes were from floor from Nepal. So when you look at him in comparison to Dwayne has its handicap that us was break that down. What makes? What one quarterback better than the other for the next level in light of that ninety one percent there column, right? That's a great point. Because I think you look at how do you compare? I don't remember one man's L came out. I said he's a wild card even out liar. I don't know what he's going to be Baker Mayfield. Last year was the wildcard big three. We knew it was Josh Allen Sam darnold. Josh Rosen maker Mayfield was the wild card this year the wild card again is Kyle Murray. So you compare him to Haskins asan's as a traditional guy. Everybody knows what you're getting there. Even though he was one year as a starter. We don't know we're hoping I think if you draft him say at thirteen or wherever in the first round, you hope that today's NFL okay with the shotgun so deep getting that shotgun snap not under center, basically in space Todd mcshane's but talking about the statute great set more passes batted down for six foot and over quarterback than six foot and under quarterbacks like Cuyler Murray. So today's NFL makes this happen. It's kind of the perfect storm for him coming out at the right time and the right situation. So there's going to be able to protect his body. He can slide. We know that we know how lightning quickie. Yes. That is in the back. Of his Eddie senses things that nobody else. Can't you mentioned the pocket of build? That's underrated part. He will sit in that pocket. He will wait he'll go through progressions. And he's tremendously accurate. His completion percentage. Was right. Where Mayfield was and he accounted for more touchdowns this season. The Baker Mayfield did during his great year two seasons ago. So I said three months ago collar Murray six foot tall five eleven. It's no discussion. He's the number one pick. But at five nine and a half, it makes it interesting. So let's go to the other quarterback that people are talking about many projected to the giants including you at sixth Wayne Haskins. You said something interesting to me earlier, you said that that Sam darnold. Did you say Sam darnold would've sorry? Josh Rosen would've graded out as the best quarterback in this draft to me Dwayne Haskins looks like a better prospect than Josh Rosen or even probably Sam darnold does not as mobile as Sam darnold. How what do you think of where does Haskins rate and all this? Why wouldn't you give him a great underwear? Josh Rosen was less. Year. Well, they were better quarterbacks coming out. I think that those guys were elite we had talked to years ago about those guys even before they were in the draft that they would have come out earlier. They would have been highly. They were they were considered special. And they said back in August prior to those kids coming out last year that in August that it wouldn't set up well for those and they were Josh Allen, Los everything around them. Sam darnold loss a lot around him. And Josh Rosen was that UCLA where they didn't have a ton of talent. So it wasn't set up for those guys to live up to all the hype in terms of the numbers and the way they were expected to take over and dominate gains and be spectacular. So people were kind of wondering over radium. No, you weren't there. Great quarterbacks. And I thought the people in the league is that these guys this year be thankful if you're those teams you got those quarterbacks they're better and every team in the first round from Lamar Jackson won the Baker and everybody in between those guys are thrilled to have. And they don't have to worry about this Dwayne Haskins a one year starter. That's it. And he had a little trouble struggles rowing the Penn State game. But I like the fact he got better. He learned a seems like he's going to be all in to be a quarterback. He loves the challenge and the pressure that comes from being a quarterback. But so criticism of him to say those guys better those guys were considered super elite and special entities for a two year period. So that's not a critique Dwayne Haskins or or taking a shot. Joe Dwayne Haskins on that's a fair thing to say those three. And then you throw Baker Mayfield John Dorsey number one. Look what happened. He emailed that pick. They can own that division for the next ten years because of this draft and because of getting Baker Mayfield Bubills love Josh ninety five and five they weren't a games. He started to finish. You can Nate Sam darnold. Look what he did in the last month of the season. Look around more Jackson games. He wants those teams guys are thrilled that they know they got the right quarterback for a long long time. And hopefully for Baltimore. Lamar Jackson the passing has improved. But from from winning, and the attitude they're all in on the March access by those teams are really happy where they are right now quarterback
"mel kiper" Discussed on First Take
"In Oakland A's. First round pick Cuyler Murray has made his toys at it is the NFL the sooner star quarterback going on social media yesterday to announce that he is fully committed to football for more on Kyla Murli. Let's welcome in our friend NFL draft expert Mel kiper junior. Now what's going on? Well, always something right? Always there's a lot today. I will tell you that. I'm so glad we have you because we started off the show with a nice little debate between these two fine, gentlemen. And what I just wanted to. I'm so glad we have you any day. Not. I don't need a special reason is. Thank you max. One knows. I'm. Okay. Well, his going Cuyler Murray in terms of who should go number one overall and max had Dwayne Haskins. Where are you on this subject? I'm kind of reading I haven't figured it out yet a lot of happening as we speak with all these news and teams are catching up on Kyle merge is the Dame expected him to be an NFL prospect when the season began or an NFL potential player, which he is now. So I think there's a lot to be said we're going to beat the combine and hands size. You think about his height? The interview process the football IQ, which she should be phenomenal Bunder Lincoln Riley for two years. I think everything's going to fall into place for collar Murdy, go top. And is he ahead of Haskins? That right now is the beta why can't answer that definitively right now, just lying and guessing I can't give you an answer. I can't get any consensus right now. Because teams aren't even sure they don't want to go on record as the Haskins Murray debate. So right now, it's too close to call. Both those kids will be projected in the top ten of my mock draft comes out on Monday and let me. Be clear max actually said Nick both should go. First overall. These were first quarterback taken off the board. That's where he was going to join Haskins. But we'll get an here mill if you know cops are always sloppy. They're always inexact. But if you look at collar, and you say who does he remind you of people wanna mention Russell Wilson, right? They wanna go short. They wanna talk about drew Brees. They wanna talk about Russell Wilson. They want to focus solely and exclusively on his height. I gotta be honest mill and there's nothing on the surface that makes these two guys similar, but he kinda reminds me of well, at least in effect, Vince young. I remember rooting four Vince young and against Collor Murray. And I was just like it doesn't matter if it comes with his legs or arms, he's going to get that first down somehow it was just so defeating now understand heightened differences accuracy, differences personality differences who does collar Murray remind you of them. He's Cuyler Murray will I I don't know who you can pick and choose and pull a little bit. But the body type Russell Wilson isn't Kyle Murray. Russell Wilson was thicker to ten to fifteen at five ten and a half and. And three quarters. You know, he runs he I mean, he is a Kirk streets it yesterday. He's Reggie Bush running and he's a big time passer. And he's a pocket die goes through its progressions. These patient in the pocket. Yeah. He'll run when you could screw say nitpick say way left a little early the pocket because he's such a phenomenal runner. If he sees a lot of daylight. He knows Ingo fifty yards in a blink. So I think when you look at Kyle or unique talent once every X amount of years, you're not.

"When Howard compare favorably, many categories to rocket Ishmail would have been the first pick overall last year. Right there. When you look at this. They wanted to get ahead of the race. One of the Howard are going pack offense j. ransom aggressives. They knew they had to go from six to four Cincinnati moves and picks. The Redskins. They moved the bottom of the third round near the top of the third round, which will help them gain better player at that point. David Pollock not only productive, but a an intriguing and engaging young men take a look. Why do. Will the down is down thirteen point. One day you'll have to wait for me to mature. I already have a little bit. I got a long way to go. That's a lie. Wow. Oh man. Look at these three right here. Mel kiper junior joins us right now Mel, I gotta be honest. I think you've aged the best out of all three of these. I totally disagree with that. I am thank you in the land of pleasant living. I can tell you Pollick is lost a little bit of LB's from that picture on the left that is for sure. One hundred linemen they look like they should be maybe in another occupation why will melt? We've got you on the day because of being bored is out. The initial big board obviously is going to change in the months leading up to the twenty nineteen very defensive heavy. When you talk about the top ten on your big board led by Ed Oliver, who is this defensive tackle from Houston who everyone's been raving about really since he walked on campus? What is it that you love so much about him in the way his game translate to the next level just from the prime Saul him when they won the first game, he looked like he could Steph and NFL NBA great player. He was going to true. Freshman came in highly regarded as a lot of these kids. This has been a great group that thousand six in class for Oliver witness strand explosion wants to be great. I think that's important for defensive lineman, who over the years or less thirty five forty years of evaluating Wyman. They do take plays off and they do pay themselves throughout at Oliver motivated folk. Focused and awesome in terms of talent, he's right there with Nick boasts. If you want an outside pass rusher you take Nick. So you want an inside guy like Aaron, Donald, look at Oliver. I think what you said to everybody's always looking for something Mel wrong with the guys and put a chink in the armor to knock somebody for something that they have or something that they don't do it. Oliver's motor is amazing. It's so much fun to watch a defensive lineman that cares to go to the Nick Bosa though. From a technical standpoint, I've never seen a defensive incoming with better techniques pass rush with him. I mean, he literally, he looks like his brother. He gets his hands or work of art. I think he's a guy that on the outside that I think he ends up being possibly the first pick taken because of the quarterback class, not being what it usually is or what most people projected to be in the future. Yeah, you'll mill you talk about that quarterback class last year to Davis point. We had a lot of guys and that was really the talk of the off season and players go in high. What's this class look like? Going into twenty nineteen very intriguing. There's not that defined franchise quarterback right now, but by late April, as we all know, quarterbacks ascend because of need and just an Herbert, I put him out of Oregon at fifteen. You had the injury last year, two games he missed. They were one in four games. He played. There were six, two. And if you look at what he's done in terms of completion, percentage is accuracy is athlete. Somebody's put weight on his about two thirty, five. Justin Herbert could ascend way up there drew lock from zuri as well. If he gets that completion percentage of fifty seven, eight of the maybe sixty three sixty four percent. He could be up there. So that's the two quarterbacks. I think guys could be in the top five after all said and done agree with male, I think Herbert out there the Eugene, Oregon, not getting a lot of tension right now because of the injury, but speak the coaches that played. Kissed him Costa my Willie Taggart..

"Which one are you putting your trust in? Chris, I tell you what? Let's David was down here in south Florida when Notre Dame came in played Miami, and I thought that night Miami's deep. This they expose wimbush and what is weakness were. And so I couldn't really trust him to throw the ball when I need a quarterback Coogan throw the ball to win the game for my team. So because of what I saw that night in everything afterwards, I would have to go with shape Patterson. He's just as mobile if night even more mobile, but he's a better pocket passer and a better throw on the run to that would have to go with shape Patterson. So by default, really, I mean, I tell you what wimbush he did some good things. You know the first year as a starter, but throwing the football down the field wasn't especially completing fifty, something percent of your passes and shape Patterson, I don't. I don't know what he is this, you know, I don't know fully what to expect. I know that he had some good moments but also know that he didn't win very many games, but he is a lucid. He's going to be fun to watch. He's going to be slippery. If you made me pick, I would pick shape Patterson because I do think he can make more plays. And I think Michigan's going to be set up in. In a little better circumstance from for him to make place. Brian Kelly did not say he won't use Ian book either whether it's in this game, whether it's at some point time about the year for Notre Dame, so that kind of has to factor into it as well. All you guys gonna be down there game day in south bend, getting set for Michigan and Notre Dame. We don't know great deal about Kyla Murray either. We saw flashes of them last year spelling, Baker Mayfield, Florida Atlantic. Now in lane kiffin goes to normal to take on the Sooners David zephyr you have anything for column this Oklahoma team. This is not. It's not for collar Mur. They have nothing for kinda Murray. Let's be clear, but their offense voted land. They can score and last check. Let's get it. Twisted link Kip and knows how to coach offense. He's done a great job of plucking talent from different universities guys that were d. one division, one power, five teams that are guys that now are coming to his university. Here's what I wanna see calamari is going to get his Calum Murray sensational can Oklahoma's defense does show us that they're ready to take a step forward and make Oklahoma the favorite in the big twelve and a team that can win playoff games in the future. Listen, David. We've heard all sorts of criticism about laying tipping up and down, but the what thing you never hear anyone criticize about this play calling. He's vista genius. He's going to pick trying to pick apart that Oklahoma's defense by weaknesses and expose those weaknesses. They will score a lot of points. They will score Oklahoma. I think they keep this game close. Go into the second half. I don't know if they can match the physicality of the sooner the specially when the Sooners wanna go with their ground gang. But there's another coach, his staff to kit the staff to name trolley wise, junior, remember that name obviously knows name his dad's dead coach, the patriots. Notre Dame trolley wise junior is a young smart talented office of mine who's rising very fast through the ranks, and he's FAU staff now too. So I have a lot of confidence. They will point, but probably prevailed. Here's an understatement twenty-five hopeful. How and he's gonna go, see, that's crazy. Speaking of young guys were once young drafted into the NFL and in the immortal words, the immortal words of Bill Tobin who the heck is Mel kiper anyway. Well, we know who Mel kiper is.

"But he has no choice. He that's different. He he's going to play for this money. That doesn't. There's no, nothing's going to change that. There's nothing that's going to change that the best thing he can do for himself is to have the best season. He can possibly have to maximize what he will be worth next year. Even then he's not going to get the crazy money because running back to drift. Don't you say what I say? If he wants to send a message, you commit miss the first game, what message standing into whom it costs money. But here's, here's his under reported storyline. This happening right in front of our face in the NFL. This is likely levian bales last season in Pittsburgh. Oh, yeah, for sure. How about that? He's still the number one fantasy player in the game. He was. First team all pro, he led the league touches last year. We're four hundred and six. He caught eighty five balls like this guy is still legit, and I know you have all of the things that you don't wanna pay running backs at this point of age and usage and stuff, but this guy breaks the mold. But this to be his last season, they're just baffling and I get what you're saying. I'm not agreeing with that. But what I'm saying is that decision has been made. They ranch is Tim. They didn't get a long term deal done. So unlike a guy like Donald or like, oh del, he's not getting a new big deal this year. That's not on the list of options if been maybe unfair, but it is the reality. So he might as well go in and play and start collecting his checks week. One have a huge ear and maximize his leverage for next year when he becomes a free agent and someone will hopefully I hope he does give him all that mount. I'm gonna tell you what's going to be at the bottom of the ticker before we want if their game is at one o'clock, he gonna show up this close to game time as possible. I don't disagree, but he will play week one. He will show up. I don't believe there's. No. There's no missing a game. Check. There's no upside because he doesn't get anything from favorite athlete of all time, right? This second, we got a skateboarder ladies and gentlemen. She goes by the name of Lizzie Armato first female in the history of this fort to complete that three hundred sixty degree vertical loop that happened on Sunday out in California and sure that looks easy. Why not? So so what exactly you have to get enough speed like I saw this. We're trying to decide what exactly is it that? Is that what part of you is it that's making that happen? Is it your core legs? Is that is that Queen isn't not your propelling with the Mike. How about the courage? Well. Fall multiple times. Clearly that goes without saying, there's keyboard that can do that. You broken a lot about, yes to get to that point you have to. But I mean, is it just a function of how fast you're going. Physics duty myself doing that. You know. I'm telling you right now. As a three sixty on escape seems unlikely coming up. They were you wondering who the top prospect for next year's NFL.
