Episode 276: Sigmund Bloom

Paul is joined by Sigmund Bloom (@SigmundBloom) of Football Guys to discuss the 2019 rookies, their landing spots and the biggest storylines by position. The discussion starts at the quarterback position with the upside of Kyler Murray, how early could he go in rookie drafts, and what is his overall upside. Next, they quickly discuss Drew Lock, Daniel Jones and Dwayne Haskins. 

Next the focus is shifted to the running backs. The two of them discuss the consensus top three rookie RBs in Josh Jacobs, Miles Sanders and David Montgomery. Sigmund discusses why he is so high on Jacobs and why he has some reservations about Montgomery in the short term and long term.  Next, they discuss Darrell Henderson, where he should be going in drafts, his ceiling if Gurley is never the same and his floor even if Gurley is okay to play starter snaps. They also discuss why it was a perfect landing spot and marriage between player, team and scheme. To close out the running back discussion, they discuss Damien Harris and Justice Hill and their possible roles and why their landing spots make them even more intriguing. 

Next they discuss many of the top rookie wide receivers and their short and long term impact. One receiver they go in depth on is N'Keal Harry as they try to figure out how he may be utilized in the Patriots offense. They also discuss the Arizona Cardinals rookie receivers and who has the most long term value. 

To close out the show, they discussion the top rookie tight ends, TJ Hockenson, Noah Fant, Irv Smith Jr, Jace Sternberger, Kahale Warring, Dawson Knox and Josh Oliver. They also discuss the upside of Dallas Goedart to Noah Fant and why it is not crazy to prefer Goedart for the long term.
