I really liked this episode. Roster building is my favorite!

A few things. I would be surprised if Risner makes it out of the first and Lindstrom at 75 seems even more unlikely. (they have both been mocked as high as 11 by PFF and Solak from TDN)

I would also like to know who else was available at 19 when Hockenson was picked. Getting Irv Smith at 51 makes the Hock pick seem like a luxury.

My latest mock (without free agency)

12: Jachai Polite - EDGE
30: Nasir Adderley - Safety
44: Irv Smith Jr - TE
75: Michael Deiter - OL
107: D’Andre Walker - EDGE
111: Darnell Savage Jr - Safety
139: Penny Hart - WR
171: Tytus Howard - OL
180: Tony Pollard - RB
202: Isaac Nauta - TE

Love this episode. For the receiving group though, I was surprised to not hear anything about Jake Kumerow. He was such fan favorite. In my opinion I feel like he would be a great slot receiver. Thoughts?

Kumerow is not a plus athlete. As far as a "big" slot WR goes, EQ has more upside (younger and more athletic) than Kumerow.
That isn't to say don't bring Kumerow back. I believe he can contribute to this team, especially for the cost.

I very much enjoyed this podcast -- especially the possible free agent signings.

I thought Andrew (?) left the roster thin at CB. He cut Williams, did not re-sign Breeland, signed no free agents and did not draft a CB. But, I love his free agent signings.

I like both drafts for the first two days. While both seem too good to be true, all of the picks seem to be selected at an appropriate spot. I'd likely take Irv Smith before picking Hollywood Brown.
