Hour 1

6:00 – We saw the weirdest fall in NFL Draft history last night. We try and make sense of Laremy Tunsil, his bong, gasmask, and hacked Instagram account. Mike says it points to decision-making questions, and he understands the fall.

6:18 – The Broncos traded up to get their QB, Paxton Lynch out of Memphis. Mike breaks down how it happened and what it means for Philadelphia and San Francisco.

6:35 – Former First Round Quarterback Brady Quinn says situation is far more important than simple talent when it comes to getting a good quarterback. Also, the reason Sam Bradford is acting the way he’s acting is because he’s never faced competition before in his entire NFL career.

6:48 – Mike thinks Jerry Jones took the reigns of control back from everyone else in Dallas by drafting running back Ezekiel Elliott. There’s a ton of pressure on him now being the 4th overall pick.

7:48 – Vikings fans are angry that the team drafted Laquon Treadwell because of his slow 40 yard dash time. Mike points out that the Vikings have had plenty of fast guys that can’t catch. Why not a slower guy that catches everything?

 

 

Hour 3

8:00 – NFL Coast to Coast – Stats gets Mike’s reaction to the NFL headlines of the day.

8:18 – The 49ers traded back into the first round last night and didn’t take a QB. That’s the biggest sign yet that San Francisco is keeping Colin Kaepernick this year. What do they do with him now?
