    I cannot think of a worse draft. Good thing that his mocks suck.

    Brandon Albert is a top 5 pick now? Jesus. No one even heard of the guy four months ago.

    Hasn't everyone realized that Kiper sucks at this by now? Who pays this guy?

    Yeah. I don't think his talent evaluations are terrible, but his Mocks do not compute. My guess is that the teams don't dig him...so they really lead him astray. The guy can be irritating. Gosselin for the DMN usually has a more accurate mock. We'll see his this real one this Sunday and his final one soon after. It's all guessing anyway.

    I dont see how Atlanta would pass up a QB. And Jackson looks too small, i dont want a small wide receiver.

    God, Kiper can't accurately predict a mock for a damn.

    This mock is full of FAIL.

    If Jones is available at 61 then there is something almost every team knows that we don't. No Ray Rice or Chris Johnson in the top two. Surprises me a little but not a lot.

    You guys might not like his mock, but he had our needs down cold:

    RB,WR,CB,S,QB is pretty much how I'd like to see us spend our first 5 picks.

    I might prioritize WR, CB, RB. But we need competition for Roy and QB depth.

    Kiper's never been known for having particularly good mock drafts. Least that's my take on the guy..........IMO/FWIW...

    Yep, thats the truth...I think they showed he's one of the least accurate on both the mocks and the top-100

    I got his draft guide for probably 10-15yrs or so before stopping last yr, and he has alot of good info...he's just not a "mock" guy, which I couldnt care less about when I look at these things

    Kiper is not a "Mocker", he only does it cause it's expected of him and it gets ESPN page hits. He's much better at analyzing and comparing players.

    Branden Albert is expected to go high. Kiper is in line with that pick.

    ..by you maybe. Fact is, most mocks had him going in the 2nd and 3rd rounds a few months ago. He's risen up Kiper and friends draft boards for whatever reason, but he's not a top 5 pick. That's ridiculous. He's a freaking guard. MAYBE he'll have the talent to play tackle, but that remains to be seen. You want to spend a top five pick on that type of player? I don't.

    Scouts Inc. - 18th

    walterfootball - 14th
    footballsfuture - 14th
    james alder - 14th
    rivals.com -25th
    nfldraftblitz - 12th

    ...and I guarantee you all of these mocks had him going way later as little as one month ago.

    ....I'm still looking for another one where he's in the top ten.
