The NFL Draft is over and we've got our draft analyst Eric Galko here to recap all of the action we just witness. Galko, from NFLHouse.com and The Optimum Scouting Department drops by to weigh in on the ups and downs of what was an exciting three days as college football collided with the NFL.
We kick it off by talking about Jimmy Clausen and his somewhat traumatic slide from first round jewel to second round steal at #48 to the Carolina Panthers. Galko sites Clausen's "attitude" issues as a reason teams passed on the most pro ready quarterback in the NFL Draft. The slight slide of Golden Tate is addressed as well as the unforeseen plummeting of Jonathan Dwyer. Going from possible first rounder to sixth rounder was a remarkable happening but the Steelers are getting a steal in Dwyer.
The Tebow fiasco will be examined from multiple angles as the value of the project quarterback is weighed against the picks the Ravens received. Tebow is for sure a project and his status in Denver will be hotly contested until he either:
1) Proves he can play quarterback at the NFL level
2) He proves he can't
We talk about the Tar Heels taken in the draft as both EJ Wilson and Cam Thomas are headed to situations that could see them playing early and often. EJ in Seattle will be a quick contributor to the Seahawks run defense under Pete Carroll while Cam Thomas will help anchor San Diego's 3-4 attack.
The show ends on a "fun" note as just like the draft we almost get to the end without mentioning Jevan Snead. Yes, the undrafted quarterback from Ole Miss who started the season as a top ten prospect before spiraling out of control during Ole Miss' free fall.
