    Now there is a perfectly good explanation for this. Mike Mayock is suffering from a brain tumor and because of this he has some memory loss. It seems Mayock completely forgot Jerod Mayo existed until just a few short weeks ago.

    Actually, Mayock is probably just an idiot. Yeah... we'll go with that.

    A la Vrabel?

    He's good, but I don't think he's another Willis.
    I think that could happen. Rivers is no Willis, but he is a damn good player.

    I think Mayo is in the same category as Branden Albert in that scouts see progression over the course of the season. Mayo wasn't even a Butkus semifinalist, but he led the SEC in tackles and was first team all conference. I also think that people missed Mayo because Tennessee's d-line was atrocious. Now, they're watching film and see him making plays despite that. He's the polar opposite of Ali Highsmith.
    I'd wouldn't call DeMonte Bolden and Dan Williams "atrocious."

    Keith Rivers could probably hold down an ILB position in a 3-4 better.

    So at first he was possibly wrong about Mayo, but he changed his view. It's nice to see, but as far as credibility, I really don't care what Mayock has until draft day.

    He isn't a scout who is supposed to find the right guy and stick to it. He's a TV personality that has to keep an auidence interested.
    But it's going from not mentioning Mayo to he's the top ILB without question.

    Maybe he was 'saving' Mayo for later. He probably spreads his stuff out on purpose and intended all along to put Mayo that high or he just really liked his workouts.

    The way we see if these guys really know their stuff is when we read their final mocks.

    Mel released a 4 round mock and it is absolutely brutal. What is this guy thinking?

    Yeah but if he is as great as I think he is, then he shouldn't have been so wrong on Mayo to begin with.

    Exactly. Not everything Mayock says is completely what he thinks. But it's entertaining to see shocking pics, rising prospects etc.
