The NFL regular season is over, and 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.
With the wild-card weekend behind us, four more teams are locked into draft slots, and more college players have announced their decisions to go pro (most notably, Alabama RB Derrick Henry, this year’s Heisman winner). The first guest on this week’s episode is Navy QB Keenan Reynolds, a four-year starter for the Midshipmen, who joins Chris to talk about his record-breaking college career and preparation for his upcoming transition from QB to RB for the Shrine game and beyond. Chris also asks Reynolds about what it will take for him to reach the NFL within the confines of his Naval academy commitments—it’s certainly doable, but a little trickier.
The second guest this week is Jon Ledyard of USA Today's The Draft Wire. Burke and Ledyard recap the incredible college football national championship between Clemson and Alabama, and talk about just how much potential NFL talent was on the field during that game. Burke then ranks his current top five safeties and talks about the draft needs of the four teams knocked out of the NFL playoffs in the wild-card round.
