For amateur scouts and forward-thinking NFL fans alike, it’s time to study up for draft season with 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.

On this week’s episode, Burke talks with North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz about his recent invitation to the Senior Bowl, the strides he’s made as the leader of an Football Championship Subdivision powerhouse and his upcoming transition from FCS football to the bright lights of the NFL. Then Burke takes a deeper dive into how small-school prospects are evaluated and how much weight should be put on a college player’s quality of competition.
