This week on a special NFL Draft edition of Thursday Night Tailgate our guests are: former Patriots Pro Bowl RB Tony Collins, former Rams DT turned broadcaster Bob Fields, former Chiefs & Falcons WR JJ Birden, former Rams Pro Bowl Guard Kent Hill and former Rams Pro Bowl QB Jim Everett.

Tony Collins - We talked with Tony about his draft day memories plus what it was like showing up at training camp the first time. Did the players, especially the other runningbacks, welcome him or did they view him as the guy drafted to take their jobs?

Bob Fields - Bob is a member of the Board of Directors for the NFL Alumni Association and was an undrafted free agent signed by the Rams. What was the draft process like for him? We'll also talk about what the NFL Alumni Association is doing to help the many former players who are now dealing with long term health issues later in life.

JJ Birden - JJ was an 8th round draft pick by the Cleveland Browns who later cut him. What were his expecations heading into the draft? JJ was also a track star in college at Oregon, making it to the US Olympic trials. We'll get his thoughts on the Olympics later this summer and his thoughts on fellow Oregon Duck Devon Allen who's following in his footsteps.

Kent Hill - Kent was a 1st round draft pick by the Los Angeles Rams in 1979. We'll talk about what draft day was like for him. What was it like going through that day and sitting there waiting for your name to be called? We'll also hear his thougths on the Rams selecting Jared Goff with the #1 selection. 

Jim Everett - Now that the Rams are back in LA and drafting #1, we'll hear what Jim thinks about the Rams selection of QB Jared Goff as the 1st overall pick. Plus we'll hear the story about what led the Rams to trade for him after a couple of months after the Houston Oilers selected him in the first round.
