On the Clock Podcast: The search for the next Carson Wentz and more FCS gems

Thursday September 29th, 2016

As the college football season kicks into gear, so too does the analysis and discussion of the prospects who will define the 2017 NFL draft in Philadelphia. Welcome to the On the Clock Podcast, a weekly look at the prospects of the 2017 draft and the NFL teams most in need of their services.

While the nation focuses on the prospects at the highest level of college football, scouts search tirelessly for diamonds in the rough like Carson Wentz who have displayed NFL potential at schools not known for churning out pro talents. This year, we have the likes of Brady Gustafson, Josh Straughn and Alek Torgersen to get familiar with. Never heard of these guys, or the schools they star at, for that matter? You’re not alone. Emory Hunt joins this week’s episode of On the Clock to lend his extensive knowledge of the top talents at college football’s lower levels and break down players in every classification whose NFL potential may be getting overlooked.
