This is it folks - our FINAL DRAFT PREVIEW SHOW!

We open with a conversation about hand-washing & piracy, and try a new beer that literally makes you drawl, not drool.

Then, we give our immediate takes on the 2019 NFL Schedule - we touch on teams the league likes & seems to hate, the suddenly interesting Cleveland Browns, the AFC East & obviously the Bills. Get some oven mitts if you don't like hot takes.

Then, we host The Draft Network analyst Ben Solak to preview the 2019 Defensive Line class! He helps us parse through the picks most commonly mocked to Buffalo, the overall makeup of the class & more!

So...WHO WANTS TO TALK DK METCALF?!

This week, we kick the show off with a discussion on 03/25 & why it means so much to Drew.

We go on to talk about the retirement of Rob Gronkowski, and then segue into breaking down the 2019 NFL Draft's TE & WR Classes.

Its NFL Combine week, everyone! (Insert Vomiting Noises here).

This week, we discuss Uber menu's  & the relevance of Bills mascots. Then, Paul Wanecski from Hashtag Sports joins us to discuss the RFA & ERFA players on the teams roster - it's surprising to see how much cheap talent we have on hand!
 
We also provide our annual discussion (bitch session?) on the NFL Combine, why why no one should put as much stock in it as the average football fan does, and we take the Wonderlic in an effort to prove who here is smarter!
