After the break Harmon and McDonald look at the top ten OL prospects list from Nate Tice and dissect what makes each a first round talent.

Draft Deep Dive: WRs part 1 + Ripple effects of Stefon Diggs trade to Texans
Matt Harmon and Charles McDonald their 'Draft Deep Dive' series by taking a look at arguably the most loaded position in this year's draft: The wide receivers. Given how many notable prospects are in this class we decided to break the position series into two parts. Part one looks at most of the prospects that will likely go in the first two days of the draft.But before diving into this year's WR class the two react to one of the biggest WR moves of the offseason, as the Buffalo Bills traded Stefon Diggs to the Houston Texans in exchange for a 2024 2nd round pick. Harmon and McDonald look at the fantasy ripple effect for both teams as well as how this could impact the Bills decisions in this year's draft. Both believe the Bills could get aggressive early in the draft to try and land one of the top WR prospects.Speaking of those WR prospects, Harmon reveals the 8 guys he's studied the most heading into the draft. The two start by looking at the 'top 3' tier and if anything separates Marvin Harrison, Malik Nabers and Rome Odunze. Harmon and McDonald also attempt to identify which would be the best fits for each of the WRs.To end the show, Harmon and McDonald look at 5 other WR prospects that could go in the first round or be top end picks in the second round. Harmon also identifies his favorite day two sleeper at the WR . 3:45 - Ripple effect for both the Texans and Bills after Stefon Diggs trade19:00 - Draft Deep Dive: Marvin Harrison Jr.26:00 - Draft Deep Dive: Malik Nabers32:00 - Draft Deep Dive: Rome Odunze42:30 - Draft Deep Dive: Brian Thomas Jr. 49:15 - Draft Deep Dive: Ladd McConkey 55:00 - Draft Deep Dive: Keon Coleman 59:45 - Draft Deep Dive: Roman Wilson 1:03:10 - Draft Deep Dive: Rickey Pearsall See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Teams that will shape the Draft: Could Cards, Chargers, Falcons trade picks with QB needy teams?
We continue our 'Teams that will shape the Draft' series by looking at three teams - Cardinals, Chargers, Falcons- in the top 10 who have a settled QB situation, but could play a major role in potentially trading with other teams who could be looking for a rookie QB early. The Athletic's Robert Mays joins Matt Harmon to breakdown how these teams can best leverage their unique situations.Harmon and Mays first look at the Arizona Cardinals who hold the No. 4 pick in the draft as well as ten other picks in the draft. The duo debate if it makes sense for the Cardinals to stay at four and take the best WR prospect available or if they could still grab one if they trade down. The two discuss if the Cardinals are one good draft away from being a contender in the NFC.The two then discuss the Los Angeles Chargers who hold the No. 5 pick and eight other picks. Harmon and Mays discuss if we should buy into Jim Harbaugh's comments about the importance of the offensive line. The two then debate if the Chargers should embrace a full rebuild given the state of their roster. Mays also wonders what the trade market and value would be for the No. 5 pick if the top four picks are QB. To end the show the two look at the Atlanta Falcons and what they need to do with the No. 8 pick now that they have Kirk Cousins as their QB in 2024. The two agree the path to contention in the NFC for the Falcons is real. Harmon is over the moon about Drake London's potential in 2024. Mays ponders if a team built the way the Falcons are can actually win a Super Bowl. 2:50 - Teams that shape the Draft: Teams in top 10 who don't need a QB4:00 - Arizona Cardinals: Stay at No. 4 and take a WR or trade back?22:55 - L.A.

The two also debate what the Bears should do with the No. 9 pick and why a prospect like Brock Bowers could be a fun idea with that pick.The two then discuss the state of the Washington Commanders and why it could be a mistake to pass on Drake Maye with the No. 2 pick. While Harmon is skeptical of the recent news Washington could take JJ McCarthy he is sold Washington will take a QB with the pick. Klassen and Harmon breakdown the type of QB and fit Jayden Daniels would be for the Commanders offense.To end the show the two discuss what the New England Patriots should do with the No. 3 pick.

Free Agency Panic Meter: Is Justin Herbert even a draftable QB this year?

The two also debate which QB the Vikings could realistically target in the draft now that they have two first round picks.For the Panic Meter, the two take submissions on Will Levis, the Denver Broncos, Diontae Johnson, Justin Herbert, Cowboys RBs and Geno Smith:1:30 - Panic Meter is back for Free Agency... and wow do you all have a lot of panic3:15 - News to catch up on since last pod3:45 - Justin Fields to Steelers... can and will he beat out Wilson for QB1?19:00 - Bears land Keenan Allen... is this the best supporting cast a rookie QB can have?25:30 - Marquise Brown goes to KC... how does that impact Rice's fantasy stock, development?31:30 - Vikings add another 1st round pick... which rookie QB is realistic target?34:30 - Jets get blind slide protector for Aaron Rodgers36:45 - Farewell and shoutout to Aaron Donald40:45 - Panic Meter: Will Levis45:45 - Panic Meter: Denver Broncos 48:45 - Panic Meter: Diontae Johnson 53:20 - Panic Meter: Justin Herbert58:52 - Panic Meter: Cowboys RBs1:00:10 - Panic Meter: Drake London1:01:30 - Panic Meter: Social SubmissionsSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Free Agency Preview: Tackling the biggest rumors and whispers from the Combine
As one Yahoo NFL senior reporter calls it, the Scouting Combine is the 'Biggest NFL news gathering conference' of the year. That very reporter, Jori Epstein, joins Matt Harmon on the Free Agency preview pod to discuss and dissect the biggest rumors and whispers from last week's Combine to set the stage for next week.Epstein and Harmon start the pod discussing the difference between a QB centric team and QB friendly team and why that distinction is a massive factor for front offices when constructing their roster this offseason. The two then discuss the ripple effect from the ugly Broncos-Russell Wilson divorce and where each side goes from here.Epstein also shares her insights on the conversations around Kirk Cousins, Baker Mayfield and Justin Fields. She believes while the Vikings want Cousins back, they are also preparing for life beyond Cousins. She also says the market for Justin Fields isn't as robust as some may thought. The two also discuss if a Dak Prescott contract extension is realistic this offseason in Dallas.The two end the show discussing what to expect in the running back and wide receiver free agent markets and if the smoke around JJ McCarthy is real. Epstein believes a few teams could get anxious at QB and make some drastic moves on draft night to land one:1:25 - FA Preview pod: Diving into the combine rumors and whispers3:45 - QB Centric vs. QB Friendly: Why this mindset is set to dominate front office decisions for teams10:20 - Ripple effects of the Broncos-Russell Wilson divorce18:00 - Is Pittsburgh a good fit for Russell Wilson?23:55 - Does Baker Mayfield have a real market outside of Tampa?26:05 - Kirk Cousins leaving Minny a done deal?29:15 - The Justin Fields trade market is not as robust as you think36:40 - Dak Prescott contract extension rumors (look away Cowboys fans)44:50 - RB FA Market: Greatest of all time (and why that's a bad thing for RBs)51:35 - Rookie QB Draft rumors: Caleb a lock for No. 1?
