    Re: Mel Kiper's Mock Draft Top 10

    You guys are really unfair to Kiper. He just states his opinions on things. The whole White thing is WAY over blown. As for his draft knowledge, he does a good job at prognostication. He is right more often than wrong.

    in fairness, almost all draft boards show Teo in the 1st round. His bad game against us probably dropped him down on some draft boards, but I cant see him dropping out of the 1st based on 1 game.

    keep in mind that a mock draft isnt an order of best players. it's a list which places more emphasis on team need. Dee is at 5 because the Eagles really need help at the CB position.

    I think he is by far and away the best in the business as far as analyzing draft talent with no close second. Also, if you've ever listened to Dary and Mel on ESPN weekend radio it's one of the best shows out there. Mel is pretty darn entertaining.
    I really have no problem at all with Mel. Sure he blows a couple of predictions but who in the heck in the media doesn't?

    Mel Kiper's Mock Draft Top 10

    If there was ever a perfect definition of a hack Kiper would be way up there. Craig James wouldn't be far behind.

    The most hilarious draft I ever saw was when Brady Quinn kept waiting pick after pick and Mel was having a conniption fit on live tv. It was clear just about every GM had fed Mel misinformation about their pick. Mel was just their tool that night. It was classic.

    I also remember him almost blowing his top when Tim Tebow got picked before Jimmy Clausen. (What is it about Kiper and Notre Dame players?)

    I think Kiper's goofy, but he has a pretty sweet gig. I like it when he and McShay get into slap-fights.

    Re: Mel Kiper's Mock Draft Top 10

    ...and with the Jets needing some big time help offensively (yeah, defensively, too, but offense was beyond horrible), why would they draft a defensive player with the first pick? Mingo is top shelf, no doubt...but they need help on O, and if their first pic is not an offensive player (or they trade for some), IMO their draft is in trouble.

    NFL draft consultant Gil Brandt believes the uncertainty surrounding Manti Te'o could affect when he is selected in April by a team.

    Brandt called the story that Notre Dame's All-American linebacker was involved in a hoax "something I have never witnessed" in his half-century in pro football.

    "I think some teams will say it isn't worth the problem" to draft Te'o, said Brandt, who has the linebacker rated 19th overall in the first round.

    The former Dallas Cowboys general manager added Thursday that Te'o's stock had plummeted after a poor performance in the BCS championship game. Now, Te'o could fall further.

    NFL Scouts themselves miss on a lot of prospects. It's easy for us fans to knock a pro who misses on his predictions.
    But, the reason I actually like Mel is because he does his homework. For all the flak that we fans give sports media for not doing their homework, Mel is known to go into draft day coverage without notes. And, he can speak intelligently about every single player who gets drafted, and many who don't. Meanwhile, we have commentators call our games who don't even know our players' names.
