#116 Dash To The Draft XXI: Final Mock Draft (War Room Simulation) with Owen Riese

April 25, 2018

Welcome back to Sports Krunch with DKrom ladies and gentlemen, I’m your host David Kromelow. We are just one day away from the 2018 NFL Draft…and that means it is time to do one more mock draft. Two weeks ago, we gave you a mock draft based on what we think SHOULD happen. Last week’s mock was done based on what we think WOULD happen. This mock draft combines both of those schools of thought in a war room simulation, which should also help give you somewhat of an idea of what goes on behind closed doors on draft day. I will be playing the role of the scout/coach trying to justify to the GM picks I think WILL happen, while the GM (who will be portrayed by our special guest) will either accept or reject each of my picks based on what he believes SHOULD happen. These are basically two mock drafts rolled into one. And to help us with DKrom’s Ultimate Mock Draft of 2018, it is a pleasure to welcome Owen Riese to the show for the very first time. Owen is a contributing NFL Draft analyst for, and he also covers the Packers and Wisconsin Badger football for It’s great to have you on Owen, how are you?
