On this week’s episode of RotoRob Fantasy Football Weekly Podcast (normally heard every Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. on Blogtalkradio), we broadcast live for two hours to cover Round One of the NFL Draft. It was frantic 120 minutes and the trades really cramped our flow. We hung tough… and then Minnesota sneaked back into Round One.
Nick Wagner and Josh Johnson were joined by Matthew Weston (Battleredblog.com), Michael Seff (RotoRob.com and Draftamerica.com), Ken LeBlanc (Thepressboxsports.com), Mark T. Wilson (Facebook.com/groups/Truluvsportstalk/), Brandon Berg (FFLockerRoom.com), RotoRob (RotoRob.com), Nathan Stacken (KSDJradio.com), Jesse Reynolds (Revengeofthebirds.com) and Dan Heins (Dynastyfootballwarehouse.com).
Here are some highlights:
- Matthew compares Jadeveon Clowney and J.J. Wattto trophy wives.
- Michael approves of the C.J. Mosley pick and forecasts the future rounds for B-More.
- Ken is obviously flustered by the Blake Bortles reach. Trade down, he demands.
- Mark joins us, but wait… the Eagles traded down?
- Josh dangles Darqueze Dennard, but Mark is not impressed.
- Brandon joins us as Dennard gets his stripes.
- Dee Ford goes off the board to who?
- RotoRob swoons over Jason Verrett and stresses defense, defense, defense for the Bolts.
- Deone Bucannon becomes the third safety drafted and Jesse weighs in.
- We mention Jimmie Ward and apparently the San Francisco brass was listening.
- Dan chuckles over Minnesota trading up.
- Nick predicts what his dear ‘Skins should do in day two.
