It’s Friday and we’ve got a special edition of the Aaron Torres Podcast, as Aaron recaps the entire first round of the NFL Draft. Aaron discusses all the picks from Justin Fields to Mac Jones and Trey Lance and even chats a little bit about the Aaron Rodgers situation in Green Bay. Here’s a full rundown of the show:
Aaron Rodgers + Justin Fields and Mac Jones: Aaron opens the show by discussing how great it was to see fans back at the draft after last year (2:00), before transitioning to the wild Aaron Rodgers news (6:30). Does Rodgers really want to be traded or just want to embarrass Green Bay and what do both sides do next? From there, Aaron talks about the big draft storylines. He explains why the Bears are now more interesting than they’ve been in years thanks to the Justin Fields selection (11:00) and why he believes Mac Jones and the Patriots will be a perfect fit (18:00)
He wraps wondering what the heck the 49ers plan is with Trey Lance (22:30), why the Bengals would choose a wide receiver over an offensive lineman (potentially getting Joe Burrow killed in the process) (27:00) and did the Lions actually make a smart draft pick? Finally he wraps with a historic night for Bama and an embarrassing night for the Big 12 – which had zero first round picks total.
