Continuing our draft coverage this week as we eavesdrop in on their phone calls with John Schneider and Pete Carroll for most of the Seahawks draft picks. Of course the player from Montana would be the one call we'd need to censor with a catfish, and the call to Shaquem Griffin to let him know he's joining his brother in Seattle would be about as emotional as one would expect.
Adam offers his thoughts on the selections of each of the picks and both of the guys break tradition and actually give a letter grade to the Seahawks for the class as a whole. With the selection of a punter in the fifth round, a lot of people were seeming to make a big deal about how the Seahawks traded up to make that selection, but the guys explain how little that criticism means at that point in the draft. In fact, they talk about how taking a player at that point in the draft may make it easier to point toward a successful 2018 draft a couple years down the road.

Closing out the show with Do Better callouts to the NFL and the owner of the parrot who “delivered” one of Tampa's picks on the third day of the draft as well as a writer who continues to carry forward the idea of Earl Thomas going to Dallas now that the draft is over. Better at life honors go out to a producer of one of the greatest television shows of all time and to Doug Baldwin for a recent award for his work off the field this past year.
