The FanHouse Podcast: Because bloggers are much sexier on the phone.
Day 5 of a long podcasting week arrives and we're pleased to bring on ESPN's own Qadry Ismael -- an especially relevant guest considering all the news about wide receivers in this year's draft (ahem, Percy Harvin) and Qadry's own first-hand knowledge and ensuing analysis of the draft process.
After the jump, we talk to Qadry about Harvin's chances, Darrius Heyward-Bey's draft stock, who the Giants need to fill Plaxico Burress' shoes (and whether it could be Braylon Edwards) and how Qadry would feel if he came back to campus at Syracuse for his senior season to find out Greg Paulus was throwing balls his way.
