    Overrated (10): Kiper pegged QB Rick Mirer exactly, and RB Robert Smith had an up-and-down career
    Robert Smith was more than a good running back... If only he didn't retire so early, have to respect his decision though

    Kiper is as good as they come. However, no one in his profession is really good. Their like weathermen to me. They can give you an idea, but in all reality they have no clue what the devil is going to happen.

    Re: Rating Mel Kiper

    I just put it out because I know that a lot of people listen to these so called experts on the draft.

    I do so my self. But my own opinion is that many of the top guys in that respect often overhype certain players, mainly - I guess - to stand out from the rest of the bunch, so they can look like they have some special insights.

    Therefore I listen to what for example Kiper or Mayock has to say about a player, but if I want the rankings I'd rather base it on some of the people that has been in the game long, but is more on the back burner, hence more neutral in their judgement.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    I like Kiper.
    I also like Mayok.
    I also like Ourlads and about 10 other websites out there.

    If you take all thier stuff you have a pretty good cut on what will happen.
    But with that said, what they do is almost impossible to do.
    Lots of research, poking, proding and digging and I still only got 7 picks totally right and 11 picks half right in our $$$ Mock draft.

    $85 bucks in my pocket for beast for my efforts.
    Won for the first time.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
