Over the last 2-3 years I decided that I was more of an NFL Network person. Kiper and McShay annoyed me. Every time Mayock spoke, I felt like he was an advanced level college professor. But tonight. The eve prior to the draft. I studied his last 5 draft charts. And it's actually pretty brutal (against him)
This is still pre-on-line video days. He was probably using DVDs and even VHS's around then. So maybe he gets a break.
-Devin Thomas was a round 1 WR in his eyes. Over DeSean Jackson.
-Ranked Jeff Otah over Ryan Clady
-Ranked Leodis McKelvin, Aquib Talib, Domique Rodgers Cromartie, Mike Jenkins OVER Brandon Flowers (best DB in the draft)
-Ranked Mendenhall, Felix Jones, Jon Stewart, over Jamaal Charles (Best RB in the draft)
-Ranked DaJuan Morgan over Thomas DeCoud.
Okay, so this is when that Youtube era began to start. Especially for Round 1 and 2 players. Let's see how he does.
- Mark Sanchez ( tremendous skills ) over Stafford and Freeman. VERY high on Stephen McGee & Pat White ( compared him to Kordell Stewart with more speed)
- Aaron Curry ( safest pick in the draft) > Clay Matthews ( nickel linebacker ) .
- Gerald McCoy over Suh
- Sergio Kindle over Navorro Bowman
- Tebow ranked as a Top 5 QB
1. Blaine Gabbert, Missouri
2. Cam Newton, Auburn
3. Jake Locker, Washington
4. Ryan Mallett, Arkansas
T-5. Andy Dalton, TCU
T-5. Christian Ponder
(no Collin Kaepernick)
1. Robert Quinn, North Carolina
2. Cameron Jordan, California
3. J.J. Watt, Wisconsin
4. Aldon Smith, Missouri
5. Da’Quan Bowers, Clemson
Bruce Carter (North Carolina) > Justin Houston
Note .... won't comment on 2012. Too early.
The main thread I see is that when Mayock decides to gamble on a player - especially on Senior Bowl rants - he can trip on his face.
