I prefer McShay. then Mayock, then Kiper.
Of course they do research. Kiper knows about kids all up and down the draft, and McShay goes to pro days and talks to personell on the ground. I don't know that either are as good as pro scouts when it comes to talent evaluation, but even the pros get it wrong.
From the way they talk, neither of them even likes doing mock drafts but they make them do them because fans like to read them.
Kiper and McShay have their role, the problem begins when people take them too seriously like they actually represent an NFL team.
We need wins, and that's all we need. I don't give a damn about anyone on this roster over wins. I'd trade Ware, Lee and Dez if it meant more wins.
