    The latest offering from your royal hairness. He still won't answer my calls as to why he stopped publishing the blue bible.

    If you want a trade down in this scenario it looks pretty good

    Interesting. QBs not well thought of and Lewan ahead of Matthews. Jernigan, Ford, and Lawrence not in top 30.

    Definitely presents trade down options.

    No, he's really not and hasn't been for quite a while. He is knowledgable about players but his predictions have gotten further and further from reality. The best guys doing this aren't on TV, they're in NFL war rooms. If ESPN really wants an expert, they'll go get one of those guys.

    I love stuff like this (thanx for posting @Risen Star)...but, some of it looks a little lazy to me...it's like he decided that Bridgewater was #16 and then realized "wait, I didn't put Bortles or Manziel in there yet" and then slotted them next

    Yeah, Kiper has fallen in love with his own intellect and is getting worse and worse. All he thinks of now is soundbites.

    If it did go like that we could get Barr in the first and/or Attaochu in the second

    In fairness to Madame de Pompadour Kiper, this is just his ranking according to their talent. I will be more interested in his opinion concerning the order in which he perceives they are valued by teams and where they may be drafted.

    various:
    Kiper doesnt publish a draft guide because ESPN pays him not too.
    He is their product through and through and they own his draft expertise. --ESPN thanks for your insider donations.

    Kiper nor McShay has been even in the top 10 of draft gurus the past decade.
    Goose Gosselin was back when he worked for a living.

    I appreciate all Kiper did to bring draft focus and interest to new levels but anyone with a brain can see he is a mess now.
    Mocks guys all over the friggin place, rates guys everywhere throughout the process.
    He's got more butt covered than a politician.
    His job is to entertain not scout... unfortunately.

    So take these ratings for what they are worth, which is basically nothing.

    IF NFL GMS view this draft talent like Kiper we are in for a motherlode of a draft because QBs will go half a round above value.
    That means 3 or 4 will be gone by the Dallas pick and a team might offer us a sweetheart deal to come up and take Carr who is the last of the r1 values at QB.

    Unfortunately pass rushers will also rise.

    Thanks Risen! I still like Kiper. Who cares if he is not the draft guru of all draft gurus. His opinions are informative if only taken as an opinion and he has had way more exposure to the players and teams than me.
