The NFL Draft is upon us. The draft itself has evolved from smoky hotel meeting rooms to the three-day TV spectacle we have today. But during this process the football clichés, many of which have been created by ESPN’s Mel Kiper and Chris Berman, will be flowing freely. Jamie D’Amico and Big Chris Newton share some of their favorites.

Beyond the clichés and history of the event, the hosts tell you some of their favorite players in the 2021 draft, including those who they hope will land on the Buffalo Bills, including Notre Dame LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramorah, Clemson RB Travis Etienne, Oklahoma State T Tevin Jenkins, and many more.

Also, the hosts touch on the effects of ice baths, why players rise or fall late, and the likelihood of accurate pre-draft information leaking from general manager Brandon Bean and the Bills’ front office.

So, what do you think? Are there players you’d add to the list? Tell us in the comments or reach out on Twitter at @TheJamieDamico and @Big_Newt.
