The 2021 Draft is almost here and who better to join Chris Gasper to talk about what really goes on as teams prep for the draft than Bob Quinn, who worked in the Patriots front office from 2000 to 2015 and was the general manager of the Detroit Lions from 2016 to 2020. The Norwood native reveals how teams stack their draft boards and the conversations that go on with Bill Belichick in the lead-up to the draft. He explains why the draft is the Super Bowl for scouts...He evaluates the best QB fits for the passer-needy Patriots and tells us the prospect who reminds him of Dak Prescott. He also details why projecting college QBs into pro football is harder than ever and gives his scouting report on ex-Pat Jimmy Garoppolo. Plus, producer Ellen Fleming makes her pitch to be a social media scout for NFL teams as they scour the socials of NFL prospects.  Email the Take 5 podcast at Take5@WCVB.com Follow Chris Gasper and WCVB on Twitter @CGasper & @WCVB Apple Podcasts Google Podcasts Spotify Podcasts Stitcher Podbean Pandora
