The College Draft with Ross Tucker and Matt Waldman: Scouting Lessons From Super Bowl LVI

On this week’s College Draft podcast with Ross Tucker, Matt Waldman shares worthwhile lessons about scouting gleaned from nine players on the rosters for Super Bowl LVI. 

On this week’s College Draft, Ross and I share lessons learned about scouting football players from nine players on Super Bowl LVI’s rosters:

  • Adjustments Matter Part I: Why Patrick Mahomes was better than the perceived aesthetics of his box score.
  • Adjustments Matter Part II: The small detail where Jimmy Garoppolo has struggled since his college days that hasn’t always shown up weekly, but it did throughout the Super Bowl.
  • Skills that made Travis Kelce the Hidden MVP: He was the linchpin to successful double-teams of the 49ers’ strengths, generated the Chiefs’ vertical stretch, and his transitions make him only coverable by corners–and they failed, too.
  • Chris Jones and Players Playing Out of Character: Jones showed a valuable dimension he’s not known for that made a big difference.
  • Reserves with Microwave Games: Byron Pringle and Anthony Sherman contributed pivotal plays off the bench that helped seal an NFL Championship.
