Nick and Josh dive deeper into an article whose title claims drafting an RB with a top-five pick in the NFL Draft adds 4.8 wins to a team’s results the prior year. They then talk about updates to Nick’s QB prospect success model with success probabilities for the 2017 QB class now that their draft position is known. Finally, Nick goes on a rant about acronyms! And…bloopers.


Our theme music is by Black Ant.
