#13 Should we buy the hype on WR/TE NFL Draft prospects? With guest Jake Arthur

April 06, 2017

Hello again everybody, and welcome back to Sports Krunch with DKrom, I’m your host David Kromelow.

Three weeks from tomorrow night, the sports world will descend on the City of Brotherly Love for the 2017 NFL Draft. Meanwhile, these next 21 days will consist of an eternity of lies and smokescreens about certain prospects and their links to certain teams.

And that’s why Sports Krunch with DKrom is here to help show you whether you should buy the hype or not on certain prospects with our draft preview series. Today, in our third edition of this series, we look into the WR and TE classes. And to break down these pass-catching prospects, it’s a pleasure to welcome back to the show my good friend Jake Arthur of

  1. Three WR’s are expected to go in round one (Mike Williams, Corey Davis, John Ross). Do you share those expectations and are there any other WR’s you see going in the first round? Which teams should prioritize drafting a WR early?
  1. On last year’s draft preview episode previewing the 2016 WR class, you said your preference in receiver is somebody who runs great routes over measurables freaks/workout warriors. Name some great route running technicians who you believe will provide great value outside the first round.
  1.  This TE class is the deepest in arguably a decade. How deep is it in your eye?
  1. Two TE’s are widely expected to go in the first round (O.J. Howard and David Njoku). Some mocks have Ole Miss’s Evan Engram going at the tail end of round one. Do you see Engram or any other TE’s sneaking into the first round at the last minute?
  1. Name some other WR/TE sleepers that can prove to be tremendous bargains on day three??
  1. Which WR/TE prospect has the best…
  • Hands
  • Route running abilities
  • Blocking skills
  • Athletic measurables
  • Slot Receiver
  • Boundary Receiver
  • Deep Speed/Home run threat

And that’s all for today here on Sports Krunch with DKrom. But we will be back with another edition of our draft preview next week as we look at this year’s WR and amazing TE classes.
