Exactly how many teams will be looking for a quarterback at some point in this year’s draft? The actual number may be larger than you think.
Draft season is here, and for amateur scouts and forward-thinking NFL fans alike, it’s time to study up 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 combine a few weeks away and the draft rumor mill just ramping up, Eric Galko of Optimum Scouting joins the show to relay what he’s heard from teams and scouts at the Senior Bowl and elsewhere about some of this year’s most talked-about quarterback prospects. Are the Cowboys as high on Carson Wentz as they’re rumored to be? Then, for the interior line play enthusiasts out there, our weekly positional rankings series continues with an in-depth look at the draft’s top seven center prospects. Finally, we close the show with a discussion of just how many teams will be looking for a quarterback in this year’s draft—the number may be larger than you think.
For those who may have missed it during the frenzy of Super Bowl week, be sure to circle back and check out last week’s show, which included a conversation between SI.com senior writer Don Banks and Ohio State DE Joey Bosa from Radio Row in San Francisco.
