Just hours before the 2017 NFL Draft kicked off, one caller to Mike Francesa's radio show had a question about a small-town Texas kid and if he had a chance at being picked in the NFL Draft.
The caller just wanted to know if his favorite Panther would have a shot at the pros:
"This kid Matt Saracen from one of the Texas schools. He doesn't have the biggest arm, he's not so athletic, but he makes the smart plays, he's accurate. What do you think?" asked the caller.
To his credit, Francesa didn't take the bait, replying, "What school? I don't remember him."
Francesa is clearly not a Friday Night Lights fan.

What did we learn?
This caller tricked the radio show's staff into letting him on the air, Francesa didn't watch Friday Night Lights, and Texas Forever.
