Belly of the Beast: Quinn Meinerz's gut-sy jump up NFL Draft boards
Andy welcomes University of Wisconsin-Whitewater offensive lineman and NFL hopeful Quinn Meinerz to the show. Meinerz walks Andy through the process of his upcoming Pro Day. What is the procedure for a Pro Day amidst a pandemic (1:30)? Meinerz reflects on his time at UW-Whitewater and how it shaped him into the player he is today, plus, what was it like participating in the Senior Bowl and never having snapped a football in a live setting until then (2:15)? CANADA WORKOUT Youtube video...that's all I gotta say (7:30). Having trained and practiced alongside one of his peers, Rashawn Slater, an early-round NFL prospect himself, what did Meinerz learn from that experience (9:45)? What were Senior Bowl practices like and who was his favorite player to play against (13:30)? So, Meinerz broke his hand and still wanted to play/start in the Senior Bowl...hardcore. Plus, what's his response to "how much do you love football"? A question routinely posed by scouts and coaches during the interview process (19:00)? Did Meinerz work during college? How has wrestling shaped his football career, and what's with the "Belly of the Beast" (20:15)? Lastly, what has a wider reach on social media done for Meinerz's chance to give back, and did he ever, in his wildest dreams, believe he'd be an NFL player (29:00)?
