Here's the first in what we hope will be a series of interesting pre-draft podcasts, where we get an actual draft expert on the phone, and ask him as many questions as possible before he gets sick of us. We begin this process with Rob Rang, the Senior Draft Analyst for NFLDraftScout.com.
Rob's work can be found just about everywhere -- in addition to his work with NFLDS and CBS Sportsline, he contributes to the official draft scouting reports on NFL.com, and his writing can be found all over the Lindy's Draft magazine. Rob's been a friend for a number of years, and there are few whose opinions I respect more when it comes to this whole pre-draft evaluation thing.
This podcast is a bit of a miniseries -- over 45 minutes, and we go through a bunch of topics. The "who's better, who's best" battles between Ndamukong Suh and Gerald McCoy; whether Jimmy Clausen is worth a top 20 pick; the sleepers at every position; and the players who may have topped out at the ceilings of their college talents.
