Charles Robinson and Eric Edholm react to the first round of Thursday night's NFL draft.

It was hyped as one of the least predictable drafts of all time, and for an hour or so during the middle of the round one, it was. Six wide receivers went off the board in quick succession, while the Philadelphia Eagles traded for A.J. Brown and Arizona Cardinals traded for Marquise Brown. The Pittsburgh Steelers, who were expected to draft a quarterback went with local kid Kenny Pickett while Malik Willis needs to wait another day to hear his name called.

Charles & Eric talk about the two veteran trades, Jets and Lions making big moves and the Packers avoiding wide receivers...again.
