Charles McDonald is joined by TikTok’s Theo Ash to break down some quarterback plays and finally get to the bottom of Caleb Williams vs. Drake Maye as we look ahead to the 2024 NFL Draft. But first, the duo discusses some of the more exciting storylines from NFL Week 9, as the Raiders got their first win under interim HC Antonio Pierce and Bill Belichick and the Patriots lost to a Commanders team that didn’t even want the win and Aaron Rodgers said he would return in a few weeks.
Next, the duo explain what they’ve seen from Geno Smith, Josh Dobbs, CJ Stroud, Bryce Young and Josh Allen in recent weeks as they explore what we can take away from their play and how much their teams help them succeed .
Charles and Theo end the show by breaking down the top two potential picks in the 2024 NFL Draft, QBs Caleb Williams and Drake Maye. The duo decides who should go first overall at this point in the season and what makes each player special while previewing the debate that will dominate the NFL Draft in a few months.
