    Re: Mel Kiper's Mock Draft Top 10

    Gil Brandt of NFL.com (and Cowboys) has 4 Tide players in the 1st round. If we do have 4 1st round picks which I think will happen it will be 3 years in a row with 4 1st rounders

    4 - Warmack
    5 - Milliner
    13 - Fluker
    16 - Lacy

    If a kid looks at those numbers why would he want to play anywhere else. In addition, you can see that we develop talent as well, I believe Warmack was a three star guy.

    We all know the talent we had on the OL this year, but it will only get worse for MT in the NFL. If Alabama made him look average, what do you think NFL teams will do?

    Guys I think you are not giving Alabama enough credit. Teo is a good player. He just faced a great Alabama team that was playing there best game of the year. You guys can discount Teo I would rather raise up Alabama.

    Re: Mel Kiper's Mock Draft Top 10

    I don't understand...the guy had one bad game, literally, in like three years at Notre Dame.

    Were people saying these things about Luke Kuechly after he played against horrible competition for years at BC?? No. And Manti is known to be just as good a tackler as Luke, but actually better in pass coverage. I'm not sure that anyone here is an NFL scout.

    Most scouts with years of NFL knowledge say that the awards circuit took a lot out of Manti, plus getting a serious bout with the flu the week after he came back. When you train insanely hard for 6 months and then have to work out in hotel gyms for 8 days in a row, then get the flu, it is going to have some short-term effects.

    And give 'bama some credit!! Your offense knew our formations, and, according to Barrett, knew what matchups they would face when we would shift. His lack of solid lay was a product of our entire D's inability to stop you. Manti won't go that high, but he is a first rounder: my sources are NFL scouts. I'm just not understanding the hate on the kid. Obviously I am biased; feel free to rip me apart.

    This is the most outspoken I have ever been on this board, but I really like it here, so hopefully this doesn't ruin any kind of reputation of respectability that I may ​have established here.

    Honestly, I think it stems from the build up to the game and the non stop talk about the front seven, led by MT and how they were SEC quality and MT being a Heisman runner up and the next coming up Dick Butkus. I am sure it played the other way to yall regarding our O line etc etc. I think him looking rather pedestrian against us, plus MT fatigue, has led to a devaluation of his status as one of the top line backers in the nation.

    I don't know about others, but my opinion of his draft position is based off of the title game. It's obviously the exception to his season because no player "lucks" into having his career stats. What I thought going into the game was that Te'o was tremendous in pass coverage (his INT total is sick), but I wondered how he would do against our running game. I think he's a first rounder, but not a top 10 guy. I see him like CJ Mosley; he can play the pass well, is very intelligent, and has no character issues, but has problems with the more physical running teams. That'll hurt CJ in next year's draft too.

    I think you're still going to be in good standing with the mods. They may just give you a barner avatar for a bit

    The difference is, our O line played up to and surpassed their expectation. I can not say the same for MT...

    Haha I don't know what a "barner" avatar is, but it doesn't sound good!

    I agree that he's not a top 10 pick. Before the title game I thought he was. And with above poster, I imagine the hype and drowning of Manti through the media, not being an ND fan, would be sickening. I'm sure that comes into consideration, at least when looking at the draft board.

    Re: Mel Kiper's Mock Draft Top 10

    I know Dee is a great player, but what makes him a top 5?

    I am just wondering because I do not follow all of that and didn't know he would be drafted so high. (I knew he was first round).

    Runs I believe sub 4.4, can cover man or zone equally and tackles very well. my .02.
