We sometimes forget to lean much more toward the mock side of it.

Do you seriously think randomly pulling names out of a hat would yield better results than how teams currently do it? Seriously?

Once again, he's proven to be better than most everyone else at draft mocks.

I suspect its the hair that people don't like, not the facts.

Re: Kiper's Latest Mock Draft

I would trade any of our running backs except Ingram. I might even let him go for the right price. All these rule changes are going to keep getting geared torward passing and away from running. Plus backs arent going to last with having to stand straight up and take all of the hit. they cant even duck anymore. Roger needs to hurry up and die or something.

I don't put too much worth in mock drafts, but I do think Mayock is one of the best evaluators of talent - clearly not among the best when it comes to appraising team needs and player rankings.

Kinda. I think there are enough near and far misses that if we did just pull names out of a hat, lets say, based on a given position, the end result would be close enough to give considerable pause. I do believe that. Very seriously. All the things they measure a player for guarantee nadda. In the end you can't get inside a guy's head. That's where the randomness is.
