Two-time NFL general manager Scot McCloughan joins NFLDraftScout.com Senior Analyst Rob Rang once a week in the Instinctive Scouting Podcast, a show dedicated to all things NFL and college football with an eye, always, towards the NFL draft.
On this week's episode of the Instinctive Scouting Podcast, Rob and Scot discuss Paul Allen's legacy and his impact on sports in the Pacific Northwest, with McCloughan reflecting on his time as general manager of the Washington Redskins and San Francisco 49ers.
At the midway point in the college football season, the guys discuss their biggest surprises and disappointments with each of the Power Five conferences getting plenty of attention.
Rob catches up with Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy, who shares some of his memories of working for Allen and the Seahawks as a scout before sharing some of the changes that he and his new staff are bringing to Mobile this year. As part of our look ahead to the huge showdowns between Clemson vs. North Carolina State and Washington hosting Oregon, Jim specifically breaks down one of his favorite defenders in the ACC showdown and Cougars' quarterback Gardner Minshew, one of a group of underrated QB prospects across the country that have scouts buzzing.
Finally, in a return to Scot's Storytelling, the guys reflect back on some of their favorite rivalries in college and pro football with Scot going all the way back to watching one of the most iconic rivalries in all of football with his family.
