Bring on the PodCats with Nick Leckey and Robert Mays

Two guests who know a lot about offensive lineman talk about what it takes to play the position in the NFL and why Cody Whitehair is already so good at it.

Offensive lineman get overlooked and undervalued far too often, so we’re giving them some love in this week’s podcast. Since I don’t have the knowledge to do that myself, I brought on former Kansas State First Team All-Big 12 center Nick Leckey and friend of the podcast Robert Mays, a staff writer for The Ringer to do the job. Naturally, our conversation centered around Cody Whitehair, who has made the transition from college tackle (after starting his K-State career at guard) to NFL center look remarkably easy.

Since K-State will finally play a football game Saturday, we eventually got around to this year’s team to talk about things like how Adam Holtorf will adjust to his full-time role and what we can expect from Dalton Risner as the leader of a young, talented offensive line. Nick also referred to Will Geary as “K-State’s Perry Ellis.” You’ll enjoy listening to this podcast.
