    There is no combination of players you could choose at #22, #28, #61 that will make everyone happy. If Chris Long, Jake Long, and DMAC slid down to #22,#28,#61. Someone would still disagree with the picks. That's just the way it is. If you don't believe it post your picks for #22,#26,#61 and get ready to get blasted.

    The huddle (free mock) has him going #7.

    Wow...this one is pretty sad. The Cowboys taking Mario at 28 is nuts, Felix at 61 is almost impossible, Rice and Johnson later than Rd 2 is improbable, Lawrence Jackson at 26 seems high, Stewart at 36 seems low too.

    I'm pretty sure that if McFadden, Jake Long, and Chris Long fell to us at those spots, the consensus would border on orgasm. I'd ban myself if I dissented from the majority.

    Like most, he was very accurate in the guys who were gone in the first 20 picks, just not the right teams after the top part.

    For what it's worth...Brandon Albert is being looked at by many as a guy who could be the 2nd best LT in the draft despite playing OG for VA.

    You asked for another site and I found one. I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with it, just posting it.

    I agree. I am one of the VERY few that actually don't mind Kiper. He knows the players fairly but he doesn't project where they will land very well at all.

    He needs to do better in the area of team needs IMO, but he has a pretty good handle on the players coming out.....it's very chic and easy to make fun of the guy but I have no real problem with him overall.

    There are better. There are A LOT worser.

    IMO/FWIW.

    Carry on.

    I know....I did not mean to sound condescending. My bad.

    This whole Albert thing cracks me up though. I've watched him on numerous occasions...sometimes against my will it seems. He's an outstanding player, but by no means a top 5 pick. His sudden rise is quite startling for what is essentially a guard...and I have a feeling those that are defending Kiper here have little or no experience with the player to base "their" opinion on.

    All I was saying was Kiper was being blasted for having Albert as a top pick and all indications are that come draft day Albert will go very high. That's all that matters when it comes to critiquing useless mock drafts.
