It’s the week of the draft so Garrett and Jamie go wild and lay down FOUR mock drafts. They each do a mock draft guessing what they think the Chargers will do through all 7 rounds and then they each give their ideal picks for the 2017 draft. Not only that, the guys give you each player they’ve given a 1st round grade, their Top 10 overall big board and the Top 5 players each of them want the Chargers to draft in order. Listen and prepare yourselves for the NFL draft starting this Thursday.
It is the last player profiles before the draft and this show is covering Defensive Ends and Tackles. They covered the edge players under 260, so for Defensive Ends players between 261-290 and the Defensive Tackles are players at 291 and above. The guys go over some of the top prospects, list their personal Top 5 and give sleepers in this week’s edition of the Lightning Round Podcast.
Back for the 2nd time with my guys Cephas and Diante. Be sure to follow them on twitter @wherestheceph & @dlblaxx. With the NBA Playoffs underway we started off by talking about our favorite teams/players and how we ended up rooting for them. The football talk today was centered around receivers. We dabbled in some of the prospects but it was really about the actual position. The first part was going over “what’s the most underrated trait for a receiver?”
We bounce back to the NBA and talk about 1 player currently or in the past that we despise the most. Doubling down on receiver we talked about what is one trait you see people overvaluing the most. We weren’t going to have a podcast without talking about Charlie Murphy. We went over some of his greatest skits and his impact in comedy. Before we finished up we went over the top 3 WRs and our favorite receivers growing up.
As always, thanks for listening and let us know what you want to hear next
It’s all about the DB’s. The guys cover this draft classes: Cornerbacks, Free Safeties and Strong Safeties.
