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.
This week, Scot and Rob recall scouting Drew Brees at Purdue and how he stacked up against the other QBs of the 2001 draft, including Michael Vick, Marques Tuiasosopo and Jesse Palmer.
From the top QB, we shift to top grades ever assigned to a player, where Scot fesses up with a surprise and Rob sticks with the most dominant college defender he's ever seen.
The guys discuss the impressive wins by the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams and Buffalo Bills, as well as the disappointing starts in Atlanta and with the New York Giants.
On the college football front, Scot and Rob discuss the Red River Showdown, Florida-LSU and peek ahead to the monster showdown between Oregon and Washington, with a special focus on Ducks' star QB Justin Herbert against a UW secondary loaded with future early NFL draft picks.
