'The People's Sports Podcast' talks NFL Draft with George Kittle

May 1

Who else would the "People's Sports Podcast" have on but the people's tight end?

With the NFL Draft running all weekend, San Francisco 49ers star George Kittle joined the show to talk about the league's marquee event of the offseason. Also, Mark Titus and Charlotte Wilder shared thoughts on Justin Fields; both are high on the QB, and that's not just because Mark is an Ohio State alum.

Charlotte, as a loyal Patriots fan, was all-in on the rumors that Belichick was ready to trade up in the draft for Fields. Although Mark had no desire to see that happen, he did support Fields going higher than some mock drafts had projected him.

"Justin Fields was unbelievable ... on the biggest stage, he played out of his mind," he said. "There was never any point in the season – and I say this as an Ohio State fan – where I was watching Justin Fields and I was like, 'Man, he's not as good as I need him to be right now.' He's by far the most talented quarterback Ohio State has ever produced."

Unfortunately for Charlotte, Fields went off the board before New England could snag him, as the Chicago Bears drafted Fields with the 11th overall pick. Here's hoping the signal-caller can break the QB curse that has plagued the Windy City for decades.

Fields was the fourth quarterback to hear his name called, after Trevor Lawrence went No. 1 to Jacksonville, Zach Wilson went No. 2 to the New York Jets and Trey Lance went No. 3 to the 49ers. Speaking of San Francisco, coach Kyle Shanahan wasn't dropping any hints about who would be headed to the bay, slyly avoiding a reporter's question prior to draft night.

Kittle was ready with a rebuttal for his coach.

"Well, I have to let him know I'm alive. Like, if he doesn't think anyone is there, I have to let him know he's not alone."

Shanahan wasn't giving away any draft secrets, but Kittle did help our guy Mark with some hair tips. 

"I haven't cut this hair in two years – or a year-and-a-half is where I am at right now," Mark said. "I don't really have a plan for it. I just let it be itself. You can tell by my beard. You can tell I don't really have a plan for that either. Maybe I'm just getting ready for my wrestling career after football."

If Kittle's football career doesn't pan out, his hair, along with his fandom for WWE, is sure to make him a successful pro wrestler. To hear what Kittle enjoyed most about WrestleMania, check out the full PSP episode below!

P.S. Mark clearly doesn't need tips, though, as the people have spoken.

Charlotte felt very left out.
