"We hope you're enjoying hearing us a little bit more or if not well. We're here anyway so this week show. We thought the draft is two weeks away which is kind of stunning. It really crept up on us because this has been such a strange off season and spring and year in the life of America but the draft is almost here connor or on Tuesdays website of the Cube. Tuesday's paper Connor. But we don't work for a newspaper anymore. Memories Tuesday on the Connor has his mock draft now last year. We made this mock draft competition into a really big thing. We had a competition with a bottle of wine on the line which I guess we could do this year like remotely. I guess we could send each other but all right so connors connors I on the board with the mock draft mine will be next week and then I believe Albert's will be the last week so we've got some you know some some interesting debate coming. Yeah I'm I'm nervous. I finished in last place in our competition last year. Mostly because of I I guess legitimized. I don't know what would you call it when you're going after the wrong person When you're like when you're chasing the wrong person my love of De'andre Baker cost me dearly last year and then that just threw off the order of everything and some trying to be a little more careful this year but also maintaining a little bit of the spice. Because you know that's that's why you come here right. That's why you click on a mock draft has to be interesting because the regular draft is interesting. I think we fell on opposite ends of the de'andre Baker question last year connor. I believe I didn't have him in the first round will so you landed on the side of Dave gettleman which historically I I would feel okay about you. Know you you dave of about the same end of the like the very end of the first round right. Okay right I think that's a good. That's not a bad thing all right so this year there while we're going to go over the top ten today. Connor that's what we're GONNA do. We're going to have a healthy conversation. And I would like to point out that I seem to every year land the ideal time spot for having my mom coming out because I feel that next week is the best time to have a mock come out because almost all the information is in. But then the last week. There's always all these smoke screens and all these crazy things which can influence last minute changes so we really should have swapped so. I didn't continue to have this advantage but I do. WanNa acknowledged that however. I'm quite confident that this year will not benefit me. Well so it was like What was the big smokescreens last year? Were Ed Oliver Number. Three all of a sudden at the last minute. Yes good That was a good smokescreen and I'm trying to remember. There was like two of them. That really sort of like throttled. Everybody's mock drafts. At the last minute and caused a seismic change at all was definitely one of them. I do remember that the quarterback slash air were also big topic of debate namely Daniel Jones Etcetera. So okay let's start it off conor your number one. Cincinnati bengals are on the clock. Who Do you have a not a surprise here? Begrudgingly I'm GonNa Take Joe Borough. But here's sort of interesting thing about this mock draft. I think if I was the bengals my choice would be between borough and Tua at number one however to a For shedding a little bit is not the second quarterback that goes in my mock draft. So I'm kind of basing it off of how things should fit. I think that to In borough would fit better in the bengals offense Borough especially gets rid of the ball super quickly. They're going to have a bad offensive line They can probably lean on some of the RPO stuff that he did it. Lsu and so. I think that everything is kind of set up for them to take him number one. Yeah it's interesting because as you mentioned here. Your hip injury really did kind of change up the process and especially in this time where he couldn't have the COMBI recheck and he's certainly done everything he can to reassure teams that he's in good health but it's not quite the same of having teams have the ability to see him once again a month before the draft and that combine medical recheck this year especially. I feel like that has been An additional factor. I feel like less like over at NFL DOT COM Cynthia freeland does the analytics based mock draft. And I feel like that always packs a punch because it's like the one that doesn't have the number one pick that everybody else has you know and I was kind of like thinking I should. I should do that. I should just be like yeah. You know what to his should should go number one. I know Steve Zillow. Pf agreed with that too is should be the number one pick. He's far and away. The number one pick. I thought it was interesting though. One kind of note on them is. I love the SIS Rookie Ham book. It is my favorite draft prep manual and they expected points added per dropback in out of every quarterback in college that is coming into the draft this year to a actually adds the most value to a single snap out of all of them slightly edging out borough and then who edges out. Herbert by a comfortable margin which I thought was kind of interesting. Yeah that is interesting. That's a great stats. Obviously I guess doesn't account for injury. It's like when he's on the field and when he's healthy. This is his production. Laws other factors at play to all right connor number two on the clock is Washington. Boring again Chase young from Ohio state in somewhere in here. Two three four is going to be the trade right. I think that if your Miami or la. You're both looking at quarterbacks and you have to get up here somehow and I think it just depends on where you're falling. I I would guess that just based on what everybody is saying about chase young and I've gone back and watched A lot of chase young now. I think that he's good enough to merit just staying there and taking him. And then you let the lions and the giants kind of worry about trading back It was a lot of fun to watch him specifically like when they put him in that roving linebacker thing and a lot of teams started trying to use his speed against him. Let them fly field and then hit him with a bunch of screens but he so fast and I don't know a lot of fun and I don't know. Washington builds a formidable front there. I mean Montas sweat you had. You'RE GONNA three first round picks there in four years and that's that's good right. I mean people work for the forty niners so yeah I was just going to say it's definitely reminiscent of the forty niners how they stocked up on first rounders on the defensive line and then they get. Nick Bosa as the Cherry on top and complete the front and is this impact player and it makes a lot of sense for Washington. It's a position of need. It's a player that potentially has the chance to be immediate difference maker for your team and they drafted a quarterback in the first round last year. So however Ron Rivera feels about Haskins. He doesn't have this evaluation period to get to know him a little bit. And so yeah. I like your first picks connor. I'm thinking that mine is going to Kinda similar so far next week. This is going to be a little boring. You're the agree we are. The Gentle Conversation Lovers podcasts. So that's okay this can handle it. It's totally fine. That's true agreement is okay on our pipe. We never yell. We rarely contradict each other. So a of things going on Vick for this time absolutely absolutely on the board necks the Detroit Lions picking third. I think this is a don't over. Think IT Jeffrey Okuda from Ohio state you lose Darius slay you let him go and you add true fi but I don't think that that completes your your secondary there. I think that you know Patricia. Likes to mix things up. Makes things complicated for quarterbacks which is not easy in their division. When you've Matt Stafford and Aaron Rodgers and all in all those guys but I think Okuda probably just puts them over the edge you can probably put him on a on a really good wide receiver. Right away and I thought that he was a little tougher than he got. Credit for what you know seeing him play some of the bigger games that he played last year Everyone's saying that he wasn't as physical but I. I saw some pretty big hit so I actually kind of an warming up to to him a little bit and I think kind of like chase young is probably worth staying there unless you know. These are the spots right here. Where we're some action is going to happen. Maybe get blown away in two or three other decent cornerbacks that are going to land in your lap in round one boy. The lines are in such a weird spot aren't they? They haven't really shown any progress since Matt Patricia has been there. They made the decision to keep him. And Bob Quinn and Stafford is aging and has had a lot of injury issues and the idea of them ruling. Drafting a quarterback. You couldn't you wouldn't necessarily rule it out but it does seem like based on comments at the combine and the fact that this is a play offs or bus type YEAR SETUP BY OWNERSHIP MAKES. It seem like they won't draft a quarterback here but that is definitely an interesting spot right because do they get a play like. Is there someone the board that they like? There's other teams that are trying to trade up so I think like Washington and Detroit are very interesting because it's not like they're teams that you know are going to be in the market for a quarterback and we'll take someone there they they probably won't And then do they like the player that they can get at that spot more than they would like a potential trade. They're fast. I mean both of these teams could theoretically just destroy everyone strapped in light it on fire. I mean I think that's really interesting and we're just kind of basing it on. I like what Andy said in. He did our team needs for US. Over AT UPSIDE DOT com. Which is that. It's such a lie to say that teams don't draft for need. Of course they do. I mean it's always cool to say that you're drafting the best player on the board. Maybe some people actually do that. But you're drafting for need. An so quarterback is certainly a need. There's a lot of good quarterbacks in the in the first round available and so I don't know it'll be interesting. I if I were ownership. I would almost say like you guys aren't allowed to do that. You know you need to put the pieces together to make the playoffs here or if not. I'm hiring somebody else to make this decision in the long term because it's just that would complete that cyclical. Nfl thing where it's like you draft quarterback and then things don't work out and you get another coach who doesn't want this guy in you know I don't know I I would be very hesitant about that. Fire the lions. I agree and I also agree on the best player available. It's best player available at a position of need and need can be defined a lot of different ways you know. We all remember when the giants were drafting. A ton of pass rushers..

"If we took away roads, then we'd have less traffic. Right. So I've an idea. Let's take away the four oh five and see what happens. Is that the most preposterous karma get all over again member that I think everybody who drives the five south past downtown LA county when he get right to the seven edge of LA county. What happens as you hit the Orange County border? And I've taken that road many times driving angel stadium from here in Burbank. And you're you're in three lanes going south, and it is bumper to bumper. It's going twelve miles an hour. County Orange County. I've seen that it widens out. Oh, yeah. They have what six lanes because they had that. Measure m they've right with especial sales tax and actually build roads with the money. They built roads with money, right, which LA county won't do and all the traffic. Frees up they built three extra lane. It's nicer, right. So how could Steve Kozelsk Zillow actually say off the experts have found that your Bill roads? It increases congestion. That violates physics. That's impossible. What kind of a black head you have to beat a print that I know why why the communists running government government-set because they're trying to you know, because of their global warming cult they're trying to force everyone out of their cars. They find it. Immoral to drive cars because you're spewing greenhouse gas. But you're a reporter and objective neutral reporter to say that what that that's preposterous. But did you see later on almost makes up for it? Because after he talks about this idea of expanding bike lanes. And boy the way he wrote it here. The idea is simple. Get people comfortable enough to leave the car in the garage and ride a bicycle or scooter on short trips because most car trips are less than a mile the distances doable without a car the goal replace fossil fuel trips and clean the air while reducing the amount of greenhouse gases that caused global Clint I'll stop right there. But he didn't explain and I don't even know if most car trips are less than a mile. I suspect that statistic, but. Even so I'll bet you. They're not alone. You might be taking a kid somewhere for a practice. We might be go to the grocery store to pick up crap. You can't take bicycle to do that. Yeah. Not. I don't know if kazillion has we're going. Let me ask you this. Steve Zillow most cartoons are less than a mile. Ask yourself where people are going. They're just going to get some fresh air. They're getting in the car to drive a mile for fresh air. They're probably doing a task. And maybe getting a car washed. Nobody maybe go to the cleaners. No. I don't know. Nobody. Thank nobody takes drive just to go to a mind Klein a pilot groceries. They can't come back on a bike yet. Because you don't do that for pleasure. If you take a drive for less than a mile. There's a purpose to the drive nobody, you know, what I'm just going to ride, blah, blah, mindless driving, and I'm gonna right back. Honey, I'll be home in about three minutes. Nobody does that. I mean zero what the hell is wrong with you. Well, where do these guys come from? I reporters never used to write nonsense and propaganda, and and horsecrap from government bureaucrats in the window times. Hey, let me tell you excuse Zillow it is false you don't print California trash transportation experts have found that new roads. Baked congestion worse that is false that. It is a lie. If you were any kind of a decent journalist, you would have proven that false. You would have you would have challenged at preposterous statement. So he writes using gas tax and transportation sales tax dollars. Southern California cities are exploring with the newest transportation connection protected. Bike lanes. Also called boys suspiciously cycle tracks city of Pasadena's about two years away from building its first protected bike lane. But he does say two paragraphs later just because they build it doesn't mean people will come cities have found. Well, they've been my favorite quote from Karl Plum alum bloom to go where cars dominated all the roads and go multi modal, that's a big paradigm shift. Listen, listen to this gibberish, though, multi modal sounds like Newsom, right? He says he helped usher in the San Gabriel valley's first protected bike lane and temple city five years ago. But then you turn the page, and you know, what he says. Well, yeah, when I'm driving. Along Rosemead boulevard where we did this. I do see a bike rider or two. In essence, nobody takes the bike lane hesitated. When he if he considered the seventeen million dollar protected bike lane and streetlight upgrade project a success overall. He said there's been some criticism. But I think there's been success. This is another manager Brian cook to bike riders, and he spent seventeen million dollars for two guys who probably don't have work. They don't have jobs and not practical. They don't work, and they won't admit it. The word starts with a P. That's why people use the car. It's practical not only will you get there quicker. But it'll be able to do the things that you need to do which often assessing carrying stuff. You can't do that on bicycle. Here's one of the instigations for this. State law said you have to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least forty percent. Below nineteen ninety levels. And you have to do it by twenty thirty. Because transportation produces one third of what they call air pollution. And twenty seven percent of greenhouse gases vehicles are prime targets for achieving emission reduction and climate change goals. Well, so the the the instigator this as their global warming fixation, and they think well, we'll mandate bike lanes and then people drive bikes, and that's will how will hit our emission goals. Well, you won't because people aren't gonna take bikes. They and it's just that story that can read five years you get to bike riders going by we stood out for an hour played right? We saw five in an hour. No one's ever going to do. This. Never never never will never happen. We're all gonna die. And there's gonna still be the same very very very low number of cyclists going to work. I the temple city bike lane. It was named one of the tests the ten best bike lanes in America by something called gear junkie dot com. However, most temple city lanes have. Few writers today, according to anecdote reports the city doesn't measure ridership, of course, already not come up that blue the blue millions and millions of dollars on something nobody needs and takes up space. We'll have more on this bunch a jackass in on is the God. Let's see when Pasadena's up to Steve Scott Zillow why don't you resign your post and the editors to whoever whoever whoever was part of the publishing process in the editing process. Good lord.
