A Few Thoughts on Rounds 1-3

Devin Bush, Jr. – LB – Pittsburgh Steelers (Round 1, #10 overall)
I think Pittsburgh is a great fit for Bush. When Bush was projected to go to the Steelers at #20, I thought it would be a good fit, but I didn’t know if he would last that long. The Steelers traded up to #10, and for good reason, because he would have been gone. I think Bush will become a cornerstone of that franchise.

Nightly Roundup: March 9, 2019

Jim Harbaugh

Stewart Mandel lists the top 25 college head football coaches (LINK). Unlike his buddy Bruce Feldman, Mandel doesn’t have Jim Harbaugh in the top 25. How does a guy who’s won 10 games in three of the last four seasons not end up in the top 25? I listened to The Audible, Mandel and Feldman’s podcast, and Mandel’s excuse was that the expectation should be higher at Michigan. By the way, Pat Fitzgerald of Northwestern (Mandel’s alma mater) is #17.

Here’s the longer Rich Eisen interview with Chase Winovich:
