Erik Kuselias’ NFL Draft Preview

Optimum Scouting’s Eric Galko joins the show

There are a lot of angles we use to look at the NFL Draft.  Fans think like analysts, general managers, coaches, and players alike when considering who will fall where and what it will mean.  Yet nobody knows more about draft picks than the scouts themselves.  To that end, Erik Kuselias on Thursday morning welcomed Eric Galko of Optimum Scouting to the show.

Eric goes through what scouts consider in the buildup to the draft.  Scouting is an inexact science, of course, but there is a lot of information available to sort through.  Erik and Eric then run through the upcoming draft and the first round in particular as the NFL sets its eyes on AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX.

The Browns pick first and fourth, but the NFL’s most talent-starved team has been extremely quiet about their first overall pick.  It’s almost a given that Cleveland will take a quarterback to begin, but will it be Baker Mayfield or somebody else?  Galko explains why he thinks it’ll be someone other than Mayfield at #1.
