"You got a man with a movie? Yeah, That's right. He s so I said three ones, two threes and Jacobs and he said, and he snapped at me. Offense isn't the problem. Defense is the problem. I'm not making that trade. So I said All right, so he says no on that show. So the Raiders are going to make that trade. That's what he says. I mean, well, I want to Darren Waller, too. So he was not gonna let my response but we would not like that. Yeah, I take less draft picks. If you give me the child and Mm. Wonderful they were doing. Kyle pitches, the highest drafted tight end ever even more. Dica went five back in 63. That's right. Riley Odoms went five. Vernon Davis went six. Yeah, he did. Hello, Insulin. Six. This guy's the highest drafted tight end ever before, and they're saying the NFL compra Kyle pits. His daring Waller, who's a hell of a player, but I just found that guy off this know what a story is. He's a great but we don't talk about him. Enough. We don't with Kittel and Kelsey getting on and there you know, during Waller is a great player. Great. Yeah. So he says no on that, because he says offenses in the problem, I'd do it. If I was the Raiders. I'd do it. Three ones, two threes and Jacobs. I do in a second, but I think most fans would probably freak out or something like that. But everything by the way you mentioned Obviously, Julio, not don Julio. But Julio Jones, potentially, but I'm still if I was the 40 Niners, and I don't know what the Eagles are thinking. I don't I don't think they're gonna bring Zach Ertz back, man. I'd love to get Zack Earth. I mean, that would just be like, why would you but I already have. Julio Jones? Yeah. But I think Julio is gonna cost you more right and Just because of Kyle knows Julio and I know how much Kyle thinks olio. Loves the guy. Now the problem would be Uh, terrified. No, the new GM in Atlanta. Just what I hear doesn't wanna trade him in the end of the day, so there are suitors for him. He's gonna get traded. I mean, Aaron Rodgers is pure speculation, and that's him and David Dunne is doing it again. David done did it with Carson Palmer. Eyes doing it with to Sean Watson. How about Davis Mills going to the Houston Texans? That was interesting selection for them. He's a good player. He and Mom went back to back. That was interesting there. What 66 $67, but they was their first pick that the Houston had the whole draft and they took it in a quarterback and then tells you need tells you a lot. Well, it could have been what they value and David smells good player. But, you know, I think you have to brace for the Sean watching and I played down this year s. Oh, you're gonna have to figure that out. But I mean, Julio always going to be traded, I would think the way I mean, you talk so openly about trading a player. Like that. You know, I think you already made up her mind to trade him. And now you just they. They have to have the cap relief and Part of me thinks boy. If I'm Matt Ryan and you keep Julio and you give me Kyle pits, Let's go. Wow. That's what I would do if I was Atlanta because what they got they? Yeah, but there's a hard cap in this league, and I think they've already they've They've already decided what they're gonna do. It is a post June one. So he's a bit of the GM said he's available pretty much so then that somebody that would be traded Then they asked John about redoing Jimmy's contract. They think it was kind of phrased and correctly. I mean, would you restructure it? Move some money around. They have right now. You will be asked Lombardi about this last week. You can't take Julio Jones on the rest of what? Jimmy making the money that if his contract stay still, Jimmy doesn't have any guaranteed money. If I'm Garoppolo, Donny and I'm thinking Labor Day weekend, they cut me. Well, let's see how Trey Lance does in training camp. It's a possibility. I don't think they would, but So, you know, restructure. Now move some money around guarantee more money. You don't want to guarantee any future money. There may be a motivating factor for Jimmy to do that. And then that would come down to then what would find no and Rich McKay and Home Depot trade him to you in this division, because that would you think the 40 Niner offense is loaded with eligibles now put Julio Jones on this team. Well, you know what? I think Atlanta's in a different space than, say, the Packers with Rogers. If I'm the Packers, I want to get Rogers out of the NFC for obvious reasons. But if in Atlanta I'm rebuilding, and Julio Jones is not a quarterback, he's a really nice player. But if somebody's going to give me something better in the NFC than what the agency is that I'm trying to do the NFC. I think there's a devastating Rogers and Jones in that way. Don't you are? No. I wish you were the GM of the Atlanta felt Dan. Have a trade touchdown. Don Julio. No, I'm drinking down, Julio. I mean, think about that office. Now He's on the outside. Right on that. Can you put the ball in the slot? I mean, that's running back, John. Bring on my homies and his Galaxies, superstars and eligibles. Let's go. Because you just short of the offensive line. You put Don Julio on that on that with Debo ended your eligibles. Ugh! Ugh! Yuk is on fire, Debo, Julio and Kittel and a running back. In most of the values check would not be happy. Sorry, Jews, we're gonna play a game. We're gonna play you its second right tackle. I don't know. You have to become much no one will go to the juice formation will be the only running back of the fields to give you that. That's the other part of the 40. Niners. Don't use three wise. They probably used three wides, least of any team in football, but still, you might have to adapt. You know what you do you occur, Debo would be rotating in and out. Yeah, that's what you do there. Had both put her to do just really screw with everybody Get everybody could do that costume much. But yeah, maybe pretty good. Derek did his draft simulator. Two ones and car for Rogers is enough to ones in car the day today. He's ridiculous. You said. They don't first of all of them think they want Derek Carr? Jordan love in a much cheaper contract? Why would they do that? If I'm the Raiders, I think he has five years left, and I think I would. I would do three ones. Two threes and do throwing Jacobs. I think he's that good. Didn't tell anybody asked it to grow his hair like he's growing it and keep it. Keep it long. And I wanted to look like Stabler When he starts to go Gray. He has to go grab a drink. Nearly enough. Did he say? Yeah, that would be sweet, though. Give him 12. Let him grow it out to the old Raiders vibe going for fans to come back and throw left handed to make it more equitable because he's so damn good with his right hand filled life. There you go. All right, Susan said she was going to join us at 11 30. We'll get into some Giants discussion. It's good that they lead the NL West one month into this thing, but the injuries they started pile ups, Alaska, the latest It's popping Lennon here on the SportsCenter.

Let's just, you know, everybody thinks it's Kyle pits because it could be a generational talented quarterbacks are valued pretty high. What do you see? Or what are you hearing as far as what the Falcons are going to do? Yeah, I'm thinking they're going quarterback, You know, no question about it, Uh, carpets. We believe the smoke screen. I mean, he'd be good addition. No doubt about it. They want to get an impact player who can Change the face of the franchise for the next 10 years. So we don't know that Justin Fields or Lance turn land. So we're you know, we're locked in at quarterback here for the fastest with the fourth pick. How is that gonna work with Matt Ryan's contract moving forward? He is a $70 million dead cap charge this year in a 40 million dead cap charge next year. Yeah. Spring that over two years and cut it down to 20. They only have 32 projective for tools to 22, then 111 million for 23 stuff. It's doable. It's doable is the ideal, But you know if he's gotta sit four year, you know, like Patrick, my home that and Canon City, you know, or Jordan love didn't for two and Green Bank or, you know, and rather step for a couple years to So you know, you can get the quarterback in here. You can get your quarterback of the future, you know, Expect to be in the top. Part of the draft in the near future, they can do it. The Orlando Ledbetter from Atlanta Journal Constitution to be writer for that great newspaper. I let me ask you this, but pits and Kyle pits where this is mostly this abetting show right now He's the massive favorite two to go off the board primarily in this spot. Many people think you're very convinced it's gonna be a quarterback. But pits could also be a generational talent like it doesn't seem like they are. Is the quarterback of that much value in Atlanta or needing a new face that you would possibly skip on what could be a Hall of Fame tight end wide receiver. Yeah, no question about it Causes. Yeah, no question about it. That's all good stuff. But you know, the Falcons, you know their line is giving up 133 sacks of left. Uh, Three years, The Russian attack has been 27. Already after 27 you know, so line is a play, you know, later on, we believe, and you can think you can get your quarterback of the future carpet That really helped them much. He's gonna play 10 15 plays that tight in you can get a tackle that could play 60 70. Plays a game or you can get your quarterback of the future, so they they are confident there coaching staff in the new regime and put the line together and you know, so it might be a situation where they lived for the future and not necessarily for The immediate gratification of getting up past catcher that you can't you know you can get open, but you can't get along because you're you know you're sacked all the time. So no question about it. Riley Odoms was last party in the Golden Top five. And you know that was like eons ago, so they know that they have to do some infrastructure building from the quarterback position and offensive line. And you know, so they got they got a pass on the the so called generation talent K block in line. What's the likelihood that they'd be willing to trade back from pick number four? It's it's the likelihood is good. However, I believe they missed that. They missed the boat. They missed the boat with San Francisco came up from 12 to 3 and You know, now, then, then I made it so rich. They made itself bridge that nobody can come up and give them something That's gonna be okay. So where they Like a fall back to Pittsburgh. They can't fall back to Chicago. They can't even fall back to New England. At 15. The only partner for them would be Denver and not so you know, they're going to keep their phone lines open and you know something could happen. You know, maybe Philly. Maybe Detroit coming up to get maybe Detroit coming up to get changed something like that, But, yeah, they're gonna keep their phone lines open. That's still a possibility, but aspires the mega mega deal. They missed the boat on that. The Orlando Ledbetter from Atlanta Journal Constitution. Carrot covers the Falcons. Thanks left in. Some have appreciated All right. Take care, guys. Thanks for having me. I mean, you folks, You can't see Joe's face and you can't see our control room when he said confident they're taking a quarterback eyes were bugging out of their heads. Joe still looks flabbergasted. We're gonna take a minute to digest that one. Um, uh, There's a handful of things there. Kyle pits only 10 to 15 plays a game. Let's let's marinate and then we'll react.

"riley odoms" Discussed on KLBJ 590AM
"We've heard reports well with the two weeks ago that Jerry was infatuated specifically, the word infatuated with Kyle pits the tight end out of Florida Brain, BOS and puppy dogs. Some people say he's the best quarterback player in this entire draft. You know the last time a tight end went top five was no, no blank them. That would be in me a long time ago, but that me Jay Novacek cowboys many years ago, Kellen Winslow, Surely Jay Novacek was like a middle round pick one window, heart and hustle kind of guy. 1972 And the guy is a player who I was not familiar with. Just the tight end was picked in the top five. That was the last time 1972. Yeah, I shouldn't have brought it up because I just blanked on the same. I'll find it for you. Okay. You know what it was Robbie Jacobson. Okay. He was good at it in from the seventies. Robbie Jake's fake news. There is no Titan named Robin chickens and Dominate the Googles for that. Jerry says that his infatuation Kyle with Kyle Pitts is a quote, distortion and quote on, he says. While the Cowboys will will realize the value they will grab the value. If a player is there, they will not pay attention to need. They will pay attention to value back walking all of his good quote. We're not going into that We're not going to go in there and spending inordinate value to go up there and get him in quote. S O. He's I guess. Is he trying to temper expectations for Cowboys fans? If you're expecting them to draft up to number for the trade up to number four, because I think that's what I'll take Atlanta's picking a number four. On if they don't take a quarterback You would expect that they're going to take Kyle pits the tight end. I don't know what the prices for the Cowboys to move up to that spot, but it would seem ludicrous to move up. Riley Odoms was a tidy highly, but his friends call him Robert Jacobsen, his pick. The pick before was Ahmad Rashad Vikings to Chicago to the ST Louis ST Louis Cardinals in the moderate shod a k a. Bobby Moore. Yeah, you know, another big picture thing on the draft. We're so bad at this and not we were just jerks. You talk on the radio, the people who do it. The people the NFL talent evaluators are so bad I was. I don't know how or why, but I was compelled to go back and look at the 2005 draft. That was one Alex Smith was taken number one. Overall. That's fine..

"So we're going to full Four hours today, right? We're not going to pace ourselves. Rain delay? No, because that's the only 43 minutes Yesterday I watched maybe the chap 40 prospects that are gone. Quarterbacks He has, but I did watch the quarterbacks because your guy John back Is coming on today. Obviously working with Zach Wilson and BYU and Justin Fields, and then Kyle got him in which freelance so But I wonder if we get into this because Jeff Schwartz is gonna join us. Pin a school is a tremendous talent. The Oregon left tackle Slater from Northwestern is really good. Kyle pits that side in from Florida. Really good, you mark Chase, and you got the Alabama wide receivers. What do you think's gonna be the first non quarterback chosen a week from today? By the way, John, it's a week away. I think, in fact for Atlanta or whomever is going to be in that spot's gonna go quarterback as well. So five Cincinnati make either get Joe Burrow protection, which is what I would do, or They could go receiver Jamaar Chase or How high is Kyle pits Get ago. Five is when we're gonna find that out, but it could be the tight end the receiver or the tackle right at five. Well, somebody's aggressive. And once the fifth quarterback and five which I could see that, depending And you know, one of these quarterbacks, you know, does drop at the 40. Niners. Don't take Justin Fields number three. Somebody could trade up to get their Kyle pits going for would be Riley Odoms since the draft. I think he went five in the early seventies, the Denver Broncos Vernon Davis. When? Six year you know years ago Before the merger, Um Magical went. I think he went three. So, but I mean, it's just so interesting to go through. There's a lot of good players looking a cornerback, so we'll get into it all because I have to get ready for Larry and you a week from today, But we did have to deviate from 43 minutes yesterday during the rain delay. So getting over to the Giants and the Warriors from last night disco found me. First of all after giving up, the bomb went back out. And one thing we didn't get into a day because we thought maybe the game to get banged, and they won't come back and play so one can they Match up the schedules with the Phillies, but you get right into that. That's about the threshold where you're starting to think we gotta go to the bullpen. We can't. We can't do this. You know You can't bring him back. But right there At 43 minutes, she came back and he pitched well enough to get deep into the game. You know, during rough, it's a bomb. You get back to tie the game. You take the lead. Bryce Harper was just so So locked in with a very controlled swing. It was hard to get him out. So they lose the game that coming home. But now the concern is, you know the entire infield. What's up with Brandon Belt? He did pinch it yesterday. What's up with Donovan Solano? It sounds like he's gonna go on the hell with a calf and those air, problematic injuries and what's up with craw? Right around the armpit. I don't know if it was deodorant. It stank or something. He did feel the ball up the middle and kind of stretched out and they wound up pulling him. So that's why you got all this infield debt. But croc can't play. Who the hell's gonna play shortstop on this team? That's a great question. Luciano is a little too young. Marco Marco Marco. Simon in spring training. He's Longoria would be my choice to Po Boy. Why? I think he could do it. I think of all the guys on the team who has the best range without crawl, but sites cross Haven't Longoria would be the guy, but I'm no problem. But you bond there, aren't they? Yeah. No, I'm not a fan. Hopefully. Hopefully we'll in the Marlins are pitching a lefty. So we'll see what we're gonna do that and then we got Molly today, right? We haven't a moment, John. For a week or so. So Steph Curry was just off last night. It's not. It's rare, though. We kind of know what the what I mean, he throwing up late. That was just that was what I did. It was like Philip Seymour Hoffman. You know, let it right. I mean, yeah, it was like he, but it had a couple. You know, the one that Anthony Slater detailed on the baseline out of bouncy, pop wide open and that was a quick catch. He had a couple from above the break straight on. That he missed wide left and hard off the backboard, so he's obviously tired and he's gassed. On Steve Kerr. They got home last night. About after two. I think they landed a 2 15 so Not only that I practicing today, obviously, but he's also called off the shoot around for tomorrow, which is really interesting. Um So E. I think they're just tired and he's entitled to a bad one. I will say. You know, he missed a couple and Russell Westbrook, who has just ended and fast. The Warriors who just fast and Draymond filed out, you couldn't stop the ball. I mean, Westbrook's one skill is just going in line the end line despite all of his injuries. You go in and score and he cut that lead down fast. But if you watch the very last play And, uh, Westbrook is in the back court and they put a little pressure on him. You know, the NBA years ago changed the Mid court violation from 10 seconds to eight seconds. That is a huge difference. You'd be shocked because I watch it almost every time. Just how close it is so on the shot clock just looked at 16 seconds on a 24 2nd clock. They got to get the ball past mid court. Before it hits 16. Pitino of he was coaching in the N B A. You know, the full court press he he'd press and he'd get some turnover. This is to be the time. To do it, but they get that steal. Westbrook coughs it up. Liberate feeds Wiggins Wiggins goes in Should have made the lay up and man did he play a great game last night guarding Bradley Beal if Steph does when the scoring title He's got to get some for Andrew Wiggins because they do the two down games that Bill had against and I made the four pointer to beat the Warriors on that fateful Friday night, which was horrible. But if you look at the play, John Stephan Curry is wide open in the left base line, where he hardly ever misses not the right base line when he had the baseline out of bounds not above the break stuff Curry in the left base line. Just doesn't miss it. Wiggins Now he's going in for a layup. He did the right thing. I just copped out. What if he kicks that to the left corner? The 26 shot is a walk up in the warriors when the game and nobody said Get it down game they That's a Michael Jordan. Michael would do that. You have a bad shooting game, make the game winner and they make a sports illustrated commercial about it. Agree. The 100%. I always try to tell my kids that it's it's when you make him. I mean, you like to make all of it. But you're gonna have a night like he had last night and where he goes 7 25 and two of 14, but the great ones make him when the count That's all that matters. And like you said he probably makes that shot. Last night again against Washington. But if you know, look, I don't know that these two games gonna make the difference. But every year you have a couple of head scratchers and to lose the one where Bill got the four point play, and then that one with a few minutes left look like it was under control. With a double digit lead. They have Washington be it twice..

"It up? Gut it downfield. Gotta man leaping Grab. I wanna win size 10 bomb throw my Mack Jones match. Jones is gonna be the riser in this draft, Jesu O. J will and so manikins having everybody knows how I feel about my Jones going free. I've always thought that her picture was designated for guys that she thought were program. Same 40. Niners are gonna watch Lance is pro day lance absolutely can sway their decision on the number three pick. With a big performance city talking about me like I'm friends with Medic is a heavy using notes on Muse. He really is good as we're all trying to make him out of here. Yes, I think the 40 Niners are going to take trade lands. Medic is a heavy snows up until that. I just think that's a million a week from tonight. When he's sitting on the settee Cleveland we'll see if that's the pig he's analyzing. After Roger Goodell announces it to draft a week from tonight, teach, Andrzej will exude been presented by progressive insurance. All of our guests. The Goodyear hotline a half hour away from Monday night Football's Lou Riddick. The draft on ESPN and ESPN radio, which parts got will be taking part along with our Kevin Negandhi, L. Duncan and Mike Cannon down. All right, guys, this is talk to me zooming. All right, So we've been spending so much time talking about quarterbacks, but I want to go to another position Most of our time over the last few days has been spent talking about quarterbacks. With the 40 Niners. Yes, I do Want to emphasize 49 as in 49. Years ago, the Denver Broncos selected Riley Odoms. It's the highest ever selection Top five pick in 1972 highest ever selection. For a tight end in NFL draft history. How did that work out? Not sure not fully versed on his career. But the idea that probably were held hearing his name for the first time probably tells you exactly what kind of career he had. The reason I bring this up is because here we go nearly a half century later, it's Kyle pits of the University of Florida. I'm going to give you a comment here from Mel Kiper Jr on exactly how Important it is for some team to recognize this guy recognized this guy's value and the rarefied air he's living in. But just quick couple things about Kyle puts a lot of people don't realize. Number one in high school. He was a quarterback in a linebacker never played tight end. Yes, never played tight end. They're talking about him being the greatest tight end to ever enter the NFL draft and in part by disagree with that moron that right, But he was a quarterback and a linebacker in high school he played at Archbishop would just outside of Philadelphia, and he goes to Gainesville. So just keep that in mind, right. Just keep that in mind never played the position until he really got Really ingrained in the college game. Mel Kiper Jr on the type of specimen we're looking at at this position unprecedented in tight end evaluation. You go back to Kellen Winslow Sr. When I first started in this business coming on, Missouri had a tremendously high grade. Helen Winslow Jr did as well, Davis. But after all, said and done, and the grades are finally in their written in pen. Now they're etched in stone. Kyle Pitts is the highest rated tight end ever. You said yesterday. You just couldn't select him that high. If big time franchise altering quarterbacks are there, so What do you make of the fact that this guy is being talked about in this level of effusive praise, And if he is is good if he is as good as Mel and others say, how do you defend a guy like this? No, it thing is is Males grade on him is the highest grade because that's what male sees, and he understands that he's been doing it for very long time. He's great it every single tied it that's ever played in the game, right. I mean, it's just that's just room, but If I have a quarterback that is like you said franchise altering For the future. I'm not taking a damn tidy in I'm just not gonna do it, no matter how no matters because because first of all, he's only going to touch the ball. A handful of times. Quarterbacks don't touch the ball 50 times again. Just give it that number. The receiver tied receiving tied in if he's lucky We'll get Eight targets again, which you'll catch five of them. Okay on an average Is that franchise changing How pits to a team like the Miami Dolphins sitting where they're sitting makes sense because they need that position to pair with what they already have. Because he could be a force to be reckoned with. But if I'm the Atlanta Falcons And I'm looking at four. Don't take a tight in. I take a Justin field. If he's there, or Trey Lance behind that Ryan or I move out of the spot. It allows somebody else to come up. And take a shot in the swing of carpet. It's just it's not anything against How Pitts. It's more about the premise of where of drafting it and what my needs are. That's all it is. Kyle pitch could be the number one overall pick if that's what they need, but that's not what they need. Then why would you do it? Me. Sometimes we look at Kyle picks. You know you have to look at him differently, And I think Mel Kiper and Thomas Shea there looking at him, and they say, Hey, he's a tight and he does things that we've never seen before. But what he is is he's a tweener, right? We discuss this a little bit before he's a receiver. That's too big to be a legitimate receiver. He doesn't have a short area quickness to be able to get off like Toby, get past like Quick corners are elite corners, but then he's too fast for safety's. And so so, so he's got receivers skills to me. I look at Darryl Wallet. We already see his comp in the NFL already. Darrell Walla hoo, you know, start over the Baltimore Ravens was bit of a receiver. You know, you look their marriageable 66 You think about the 45 like he's only £240. So you know, he was going down and block and Justin Houston. He message he gonna get mad dog within the box. So like you already got to say that he's a receiver. So now you're gonna put teams Big sub, or you got to drive a tight end. That's gonna be your block and tight because he's not gonna be the guy that's gonna continuously set the edge. But, you know, I could remember, you know that the Antonio gates the basketball guys of the world who know Antonio, We're going black. Nobody. Tony Gonzalez. One go black. Nobody, you know, but they were just glorified receivers who are the biggest Mitch masses in the game. If you could get them open in space, But when you need him to do the dirty work, you call somebody else to do that. You put them on combo blocks used athleticism to help you get the age capture the edge. So like he's a tweener. No, um Kind of different. I'm kind of on the fence, because I think if Atlanta Has an opportunity to get him. He could be a finishing piece right because you think about what they already have. You already got hating hers. Who's a kind of a past catching type of tight end? He's a guy that could put them over the top. He's a guy today because now you got two guys. That's a tough mismatch. But that depends on what you feel about Matt Ryan. If you think that Matt Ryan got three more years left you say, Hey, I'll address the quarterback position. I'll try and go one more time to try and win a Super Bowl with Matty Ice. But if I have this, could you imagine Julio Jones? Really? You could think about hating hurts and then a guy like pits..
