This week on the Instinctive Scouting Podcast, two-time NFL general manager Scot McCloughan joins our own Rob Rang to review their favorite performances during the college conference championships, as well as peek ahead to the playoff matchups between Oklahoma and Alabama in the Orange Bowl and Notre Dame and Clemson in the Cotton Bowl. The guys also discuss the Heisman candidates, breaking them down as NFL prospects as well as giving their own personal opinion as to who will actually win the trophy.
McCloughan puts on his general manager hat for a moment and explains how he would handle the growing issue of college prospects choosing to sit out their final bowl game.
Rob has been bemoaning the lack of star power at the running back position likely to be available in the 2019 NFL draft, so the guys instead take a look at some of the better veteran or even retired runners of recent years. The conversation turns to Washington Redskins star Adrian Peterson, who Scot recalls scouting back at Oklahoma (not to mention, his brother, Dave, playing against him!) and who continues to prove doubters wrong with his Hall of Fame-caliber combination of speed and power.
As always, thanks for listening!
