- Dane Brugler talks NFL Draft; Wizards' next steps Ben Standig 1:09:57
The Athletic’s Ben Standig is here and ready to tackle two of his favorite subjects: The NFL Draft and the Washington Wizards with guests Dane Brugler (The Athletic) and Ava Wallace (Washington Post).
Ben opens the show with a rundown on the latest involving the team including a pre-draft meeting with potential no. 1 overall selection Travon Walker and what Deebo Samuel’s trade request means for Terry McLaurin.
Then Ben welcomes in draft analyst Dane Brugler (12:25). What does Dane make of the wild top 10? Is Jameson Williams an overlooked consideration for Washington at 11? Also, thoughts on Kyle Hamilton, Chris Olave, Devin Lloyd, running backs, Day 3 sleepers and more.
Next comes a pivot to the hardwood as Ava joins the chat to put a capper on the Wizards’ chaotic season (35:20). Does the lineup hope with Bradley Beal, Kyle Kuzma and others outweigh the frustration? Are they any closer to contending? What about the future for Wes Unseld Jr., Tomas Satoransky and Rui Hachimura?
