Spring football has officially ended at Notre Dame with Saturday’s Blue-Gold Game in the books. Next up on the Notre Dame football calendar is the NFL Draft starting April 25.

On this week’s podcast, Tyler James and Eric Hansen wanted to wrap up spring football and get back into some pre-draft coverage. That's why they invited on former Irish linebacker Drue Tranquill.

Tranquill is one of several former Notre Dame players hoping to get drafted next week and he was also at the Blue-Gold Game, so he was the perfect guest to discuss both.

On the show, Tranquill discussed Notre Dame's linebacker situation, his interactions with the current linebackers, how he handled position changes, what he expects from next week's NFL Draft and how he's getting ready for a life-changing couple of months (:44).

Then Tyler and Eric made some predictions for the season based off Blue-Gold Game stats during the "Place Your Bets" segment (14:50) and weighed in on running back Jahmir Smith's future during the "Flavor of the Week" segment (19:03).

Later, Tyler and Eric answered questions from Twitter (21:15).
