The show returns to the One Bills Drive after our week in Indianapolis at the NFL Scouting Combine. To recap, we listened in today Monday’s Combine conference call with ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay. McShay weighed in on who he thinks might pull ahead in the race for the number 3-quarterback in the draft and the running backs that could be available in the middle rounds.
Bills defensive tackle Corbin Bryant joined the show at the bottom of the first hour. He talked about his second season on the Bills defensive line, the changeover with the coaching staff, and why he and his teammates are excited to “adapt” to a new defensive scheme. He then went on to discuss his involvement this offseason with the NFLPA Externship, where he’s working with Under Armour, in hopes of building experience for life after football.
“One thing I’ve learned in life is that you have to continue to learn. Football is not forever even though I love the game and I love playing on Sunday’s. I use the offseason to try and learn as much as I can about different fields so when that times comes, I’ll be ready.”
Circling back to the Combine, we brought in CBS Sports Senior NFL writer Will Brinson. Brinson’s recent article on the site took a look at the NFL Combine Winners and Losers. Brinson talked about the quarterback class with an interesting take on Jameis Winston’s on-field issues rather than his off-field red flags. He went on to say he was disappointed in what he saw from the running back group last week in Indianapolis but did say there’s plenty of talent to get a worthy pick in the later rounds.
“This is a group with some second, maybe late first if you really need a running back but probably second and third round talents where once again, we’re going to see teams that need running back help that are able to go in the draft instead of overpaying in free agency, pick up a young guy that they can plug and play that they picked up in the second or third round, which has become the sweet spot for running backs in the NFL these days.”
