College Football Podcast: What CFB fans misunderstand about NFL draft

Wednesday March 2nd, 2016

Why do NFL scouts' evaluations of draft prospects often differ so much from college football fans' perspectives? SI NFL writer and draft guru Chris Burke joins host Zac Ellis on the SI College Football Podcast to explain some of the factors that influence draft analysis and cause it to differ from rankings based purely on college performance. Burke also breaks down former North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz and projects how Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry will fare in his rookie season.

After Burke, stick around to hear from former Arkansas offensive lineman Sebastian Tretola and former Oregon quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. as they discuss their college careers and preparations for April's draft.
