Mel Kiper Might Have Given Us the Biggest Compliment of All

Did anyone watch ESPN Sportcenter's Draft Recap Special last night.  There was an unexpected moment when Mel Kiper Jr. gave the Chiefs 5th Round selection a huge endorsement.  Kiper gave the Chiefs an average grade (C+) for their overall 2011 Draft and didn't spend much time talking about them.  Despite this, and seemingly out of nowhere, when all the panelists were asked which QB taken in this year's draft was going to have the best career, Mel Kiper answered the Chiefs 5th Round selection Ricky Stanzi.  Kiper cited Pioli's insight into selecting QBs and his ability to learn under a stable QB from the likes Zorn and Haley as the reasons.  If Ricky Stanzi develops into a pro-bowl QB, even if nobody else pans out, I'd say this would be a pretty successful draft.  Of course we expect more than one player from this Chiefs draft to develop into good NFL starters.
