    Why would the detroit lions keep taking a WR with a top 5 picks? Why do the broncos always pick away from there needs? Maybe Kipers know somthing we dont. Theres always going to be a couple teams that go away from there 1st or 2nd needs a pick a guy that can contribute. The reason I watch the draft other then its last of college football I get to see till september is all the suprises.

    True, the draft is a very unpredictable thing. But these picks just make no sense.

    7. NE: Aqib Talib
    9. CIN: Phillip Merling
    20. TB: Felix Jones
    23. PIT: Chilo Rachal
    26. JAX: Derrick Harvey*
    27. SD: Reggie Smith

    Bucs will not take a RB in round 1 with so many needs and Graham had a really good season we will likely resign Michael Bennett. Also the draft is deep at RB and could address that later. Horrible pick with Felix Jones.

    Derrick Harvey DOES NOT fit the Jags scheme, period. They like bigger, bulky linemen up front and Harvey is the opposite of that.

    Reggie Smith to the chargers? Why? Cromartie, Jammer, they just drafted Paul Oliver. That pick makes no sense. They will go ILB or OL in round 1 since they don't pick again until round 5. The need must be addressed.

    I mean once he gave the Bucs Antonio Cromartie in round 1 even though he is a horrible fit as a zone corner and the Bucs never take DBs in the first round.

    Just a below average mock drafter.

    Creating a mock draft is not an exact science, Ive never seen a single person or publication ever get even 80% of the first round right. So to say someone is an expert is stupid, we all do this cause we love football. But Mel Kiper puts in the hours and see's a lot of stuff we dont see. For every dumb pick he's got 4 or 5 that are right on. There's a differance between who we think fits a team and who they like. Ive been watching the draft very closely for 15 years and the best thing about it; is it a suprise most of the time.

    Mike Mayock was the only person that had the Bills taking Donte Whitner 2 years ago. That prediction still resonates with me.

    True but Mel usually has a lot of picks that make you go Huh? early on. Gets poeple talking about it like we are now. Because if his mock was perfect(as we expect from the great Mel Kiper) no one would say much.

    Mel deserves respect for every draftnik because he is a huge reason why the NFL Draft is as big as it is today.

    MKJ is the godfather of the Draft. Period. That doesn't mean I always agree with what he has to say or agree with his mocks. He deserves criticsm because every analyst does whether on tv, internet, or radio.

    I'm just saying he deserves that layer of respect from all draftniks because he truly was the first to fall in love with the draft.

    Oh I'm not going to disagree with that tray but lets just call a spade a spade. Mel has a history of really inaccurate early projections and maybe that is because he is doing all the work himself and is just bad at it.

    I mean look at some of his big boards this year...absolutely horrible.

    Mel Kiper has been doing this a very long time, yeah hes gonna have some dumb picks from time to time but he puts in 100's of more hours on tapes and breaking down nfl teams unlike some self proclamed draft experts on here. I have no problem with people who criticize picks but to judge someone who gets pay a large amount of money for a long time is just ignorant.
