How to talk about NFL draft with the new NFL Live podcast: A guide
You can’t talk about the draft without talking about the NFL.
You can’t even talk about draft picks without discussing the Browns or Raiders.
And even if you do, you’re not likely to hear anyone say anything remotely resembling “the draft is the worst time of the year ever.”
That’s because the draft is only one thing you can talk about with those three teams.
So, what do you do when your team is trying to decide who to draft?
What if your team isn’t trying to draft any particular player, but rather, who it thinks it might be able to take a player from one of the teams in the top 10?
Here’s how to talk to your draft team about what to talk with.

The Cleveland Browns are not in the playoffs this season.
The Raiders are.
The New England Patriots are.
They’re in the NFC East.
The New England Pats are 6-6.
The Oakland Raiders are 5-7.
The Raiders are 2-5.
The Denver Broncos are 4-6The Philadelphia Eagles are 6+-1.
The Detroit Lions are 4+-2.
The Buffalo Bills are 8+-3.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are 3-6All four of these teams have a record of 1-9, but the Buffalo Bills were a good team last season.
They have two players who were the top-15 picks in the 2016 NFL Draft.
The Bills went 14-1, including a victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 16, which propelled them into the playoffs for the first time since 2013.
Buffalo’s three wins were by a combined score of 38-28, which is an average of 8.8 points per game.
The Jets were 8-7 in the second half of last season, which was good enough to qualify for the playoffs.
They lost to the Buffalo Sabres in Week 3.
Buffalo’s playoff oddsThis is what happens when you have the Jets as your opponent in the divisional round.
They beat the Buffalo Jets in the first round.
That’s right, they beat the Jets in a playoff game.
This is the Bills’ second playoff loss in three seasons.
The Jaguars were 7-5 in the last five games of last year’s season, but they didn’t make the playoffs because they lost to Tampa Bay in the wild-card round.
They are currently 3-3 in the AFC East.
Their record: 0-7 (2-6 AFC East).
The Buffalo Sabres are 6.5-1 in the regular season.
The Cleveland Browns were 5-3-1 last season and 3-2 in the postseason.
The Arizona Cardinals were 8+1 last year and 4-2-1 this season (including playoffs).
They have three players who are top-10 picks in both the 2016 and 2017 drafts.
The Cardinals are in the playoff race with a record in the middle of the pack.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are 6, the Kansas City Chiefs are 3, and the Oakland Raiders were 2.
The Oakland Raiders have two top-25 picks this season: quarterback Derek Carr and wide receiver Amari Cooper.
Carr, who was a top-three pick in the 2017 draft, has thrown for 1,917 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Cooper, the second-rounder, has 590 yards and six touchdowns.
Both players are expected to play a big role in Buffalo’s playoff chances.
The Bills could use their third-round pick on a quarterback, although they can’t do that with their first-round choice.
If they are going to trade up, they will probably need to move up to grab Cooper.
The Bills also need a receiver, but not necessarily a receiver.
That’s not to say they don’t need help at receiver, either.
The Browns need a wide receiver to go with Cooper, but there are others.
They also have two second-round picks.
The Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers have the most in the draft.
The Browns could be a playoff contender if they land a player like Clemson’s Sammy Watkins.
Watkins was a fourth-round draft pick in 2017.
The Colts need help on defense and wide receivers, so the Bills are in good position.
The Bears need help up front, but that’s not the same as needing a cornerback.
The Steelers also need help, and that’s the same with cornerback.
The Falcons need help in the secondary, and there’s a lot of help there.
The Broncos could be in for a bad season, and they’re not even in the Super Bowl right now.
They still have two picks in this draft, and it’s hard to envision them getting a big-time defensive player like Watkins.
The Vikings are 3.5 games out of first place.
The Seahawks and Buccaneers have the best records in the
