It is draft night. We came into this with a plan, so hear us out.

We know #oniowapod will be available for just a few hours before Thursday night’s NFL Draft. So, we talk draft on the front end of the podcast, knowing how different it might turn out. Also, this podcast would’ve only had a shelf life of two hours if it was just the draft.

So, a little draft stuff. We make calls on Iowa’s four combine guys. Scott believes OL Ross Reynolds could be picked, too. I agree.

What else did we talk about? Coordinators Brian Ferentz and Phil Parker spoke this week. High degree of football nerdery, but it was a lot of fun. One thing that really struck me during Thursday’s interviews was the depth of thought and consideration that goes into everything. I feel like being a football coach is pretty good training for law school. Everything is run through the logic machine.

Programming note: We’re probably looking at Monday for the next pod. We’ll want to bring fresh stuff from our look at the Hawkeyes on Friday night.

Enjoy the draft! I hope your team picks a really obscure prospect that leaves you wondering, “What in the heck?” Unless you’re a Packers fan. Then, I hope all the picks come with a heavenly glow.

Have fun.
