On The Clock podcast: Comparing mock drafts with Eric Edholm

Thursday October 15th, 2015

Football season may have just arrived, but NFL draft season is a year-long experience. For amateur scouts and forward-thinking NFL fans alike, welcome to the On the Clock NFL Draft Podcast with Chris Burke, a weekly look at the prospects of the 2016 draft and the NFL teams most in need of their services.

With each week, we get a better picture of each NFL team's needs and the skills of each college football player. And since the college football season is now halfway over, it's an excellent time for NFL draft pundits to talk mock drafts. On this episode, Chris Burke is joined by Eric Edholm of Yahoo! Sports and 120 Sports, and the two compare their recently published 2016 NFL mock drafts (Burke's is here, Edholm's is here). There's a few things they agree on (Jared Goff as the first quarterback off the board), but there's plenty they disagree on, as well. And as always, Burke takes a look at three players on the rise and three players whose stock has recently taken a hit.

If you have any feedback, want us to break down a particular prospect or want to weigh on with your own draft predictions, reach out to Burke on Twitter, and don't forget to subscribe to the On The Clock podcast here.
