B-Straw and Pauly G gas up the car and rip open the sunflower seeds for another road trip. On this trip, the guys cruise west to Fresno, California before finishing the trip in Pittsburgh. Joining the hosts on their first stop is B.J. Antiola from the Fresno Bee, who reports on quarterback Derrek Carr’s pro day. According to Antiola, Carr’s numerous broken school records do not overcome the inconsistencies he has shown on game film, which may hurt his draft status. On their final stop of the trip, the guys are joined by KDKA Pittsburg’s Pat Bostick. Pat is the color commentator of Pittsburgh Panthers football and has a clear idea of how quarterback Tom Savage will fit into the NFL. Bostick states that Savage is a tough quarterback that makes throws under duress; a skill every quarterback must possess at the NFL level.

Dan says Murray is having a rapid recovery and will be able to fully participate in his pro-day next week.
Former Texans Safety Nick Ferguson joins B-Straw and Pauly G to present his case on why the Texans shouldn’t pass up on South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney. Ferguson contends that Clowney’s high motor and God given talents earn him the right to be in contention for the number one overall pick of the 2014 NFL draft. Ferguson goes on to discuss how defense ‘wins championships and evaluates some of the quarterbacks that will be selected in the draft.
David James, Open Door Sports Consulting, joined The B-Straw and Pauly G Show to discuss who the Texans will draft. He said he saw it coming that the Texans would let Gary Kubiak go. James is not as high on Clowney as high on him as a lot of people. He thinks that O’Brien might be looking at more of a long term solution at quarterback. He thinks trading a later pick for Ryan Mallet or Kirk Cousins would be a bad move because the Texans have Fitzpatrick already.
South Carolina defensive coordinator, Lorenzo Ward, joined SportsRadio 610 to discuss Jadeveon Clowney and the possibility of him coming to the Houston Texans.
