You can find With the First Pick on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and wherever else podcasts are found.
Ryan Wilson and Rick Spielman are together in Phoenix, Arizona, the site of Super Bowl 57! The guys discuss how the Eagles and Chiefs were built through the draft including Philadelphia's aggressiveness to pull off a draft day trade for AJ Brown and selecting Jalen Hurts in the 2nd round plus Kansas City nailing the Patrick Mahomes pick as well as several 2nd round steals. Next, Rick & Ryan make pro comparisons for elite QB prospects Bryce Young, CJ Stroud, Anthony Richardson and CJ Stroud. Finally, former Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff along with Eric Eager join the show on behalf of Sumer Sports to talk analytics in the draft and across the NFL.
