Episode 256: Sigmund Bloom

Paul is joined by Sigmund Bloom (@SigmundBloom) of Football Guys to discuss the 2019 NFL Draft. The discussion starts the quarterback position and what makes Kyler Murray such a unique prospect, how his game translates, the variety in which he can solve problems and why he most likely will be the first pick in the NFL Draft to the Arizona Cardinals. Following the discussion on Murray, they discuss Dwayne Haskins, Drew Lock, Daniel Jones and Will Grier. 

Next the focus is shifted to the running backs. The two of them discuss that why the position in someways is devalued in the NFL, it has not been devalued in terms of draft capital for the running backs that are offensive weapons and can impact the game in a variety of ways. They discuss Josh Jacobs in terms of whether he can be that difference maker. After the discussion on Jacobs, they talk about Darrell Henderson, Miles Sanders, Damien Harris and David Montgomery as the next tier. They close out the running back discussion with some under the radar names including a discussion on Rodney Anderson and where he would fit if he did not have any injury issues and was being evaluated strictly on his film.

Next, the discussion turns to the Tight Ends and why this class rivals the 2017 draft in terms of being one of the best tight end classes ever. They discuss TJ Hockenson, Irv Smith Jr., Noah Fant, and many of the tight ends from the next tiers of prospects.

To close out the episode, the two discuss the Wide Receiver position. The discussion starts with a breaking down of DK Metcalf and his teammate AJ Brown and what they offer in terms of their skill set at the next level. Next, the discussion focuses on Hakeem Butler and why he is one of the most polarizing draft prospects ever. To close out the show, they discuss why Deebo Samuels is one of the most versatile and best problem solvers from the wide receiver group, Kelvin Harmon and some day three sleeper wide receivers such as Penny Hart, Antoine Wesley and others.
