The Upon Further Review crew came strong this week on the program to ring in the first week of OTAs for the Silver and Black, welcoming in a pair of rookie linemen to the audio studio, Ronald Ollie and Lester Cotton Sr.
After Eddie Paskal and Producer Trav get through the week’s transactions, they dive into the topic of OTAs, discussing what they really want to see over the course of the ten sessions that make up Phase III of the Offseason Workout Program.
From there, Ronald Ollie is good enough to stop by the beat lab after the day’s work to talk about his incredible journey to the NFL, what it was really like being the star of the Netflix hit show “Last Chance U” and his early impressions of Head Coach Jon Gruden.
Following Mr. Ollie’s interview, the guys keep things moving with another undrafted rookie getting in the mix, this time in the form of Lester Cotton Sr.
The University of Alabama product – and current roommate of Josh Jacobs – talks about a variety of things, including how ‘Bama got him ready for the NFL, his best Nick Saban story, and what kind of roommate Josh Jacobs really is.
The episode ends – as it always does – with Victory Formation, where Eddie, Travis, and Kyle Martin get into OTAs a little bit more, and Kyle shares some “personal news” that recently came his way.
As we said above, it’s a stacked episode, so be sure to listen to the whole thing, below.
