On this episode of the NFL Mocks Podcast, the guys get started with a little news and notes and talk about Jordan Love and two of his teammates getting arrested for marijuana possession and what that means for his stock (3:37), then talk about Andrew Thomas declaring for the 2020 NFL Draft (6:37). Also, it must be awkward to be the guy who reported D’Andre Swift was declaring only for him to refute it (10:21).

Nate gets to gush about his favorite quarterback Drew Brees for a bit as he passed Peyton Manning in all-time touchdown passes (13:15).


Then the real (long) fun begins, as the guys break down the early Senior Bowl roster reveal (19:24). They talk about the quarterback position at length (19:30), mostly about Jordan Love, Anthony Gordon‘s number of reps in Mike Leach‘s offense, and who could join the four already announced.

Next up are the skill positions. The running back class for the Senior Bowl still has some room left (28:00) but there are good names there already. Wide receivers are talked about at length (32:50), because of how good the group is. They also touch on the tight end position and talk Brycen Hopkins and Jared Pinkney (39:36).

Moving into the offensive line (45:32), Jake is excited about two players from Washington, while Nate brings up a small school player and a couple of others who are toolsy.

The edge class looks excellent (49:55) and Jake gushes about Terrell Lewis, while Nate dives a little deeper into other names. We know the defensive line is loaded (55:00). Nate talks about an elite run defender while Jake brings up two dominant players. Unfortunately, no Derrick Brown.

The defensive backs will be very intriguing as well (1:01:40), and Jake puts his stamp on one player from the group (1:02:50). They get into specialists at the end, Nate forgets that LSU’s Blake Ferguson is, in fact, a long snapper and not their punter (1:08:48).

The questions range from Jalen Hurts‘ stock to why no Illini players are in the all-star games and finishes with a game of “which prospect will reach more pro bowls” (1:10:20). Hope you all enjoyed this episode!
