Last year's class shouldn't be much better than a C- still. The Seahawks made a horrid 1st round pick in James Carpenter. Absolutely terrible.
What do you mean he's "stupid for going against a proven NFL coach?" You think every analyst in everything in sports should golf clap whenever teams make moves, regardless of what happened, since clearly the coaches/personnel men are smarter than them? Spare me that ****.
Mel Kiper absolutely knows more than the average person. People will forget the good/accurate calls he makes, and harp on him for the bad ones. No one is 100% when it comes to the NFL Draft, and no one ever will be.
Mike Mayock > ESPN.
Personally I love Mayock though.
I saw on some blog that he gave the Redskins a C+
He was a little off.
I agree that the Carp pick by the Hawks look terrible now, however that wasn't our entire draft. Our 4th round pick netted us KJ Wright, who looks like a stud OLB and our 5th pick was Richard Sherman who is definately one of the top 3 CB's in the league right now. Those 2 picks alone at that value has to vault us to at least a B even if you take in the account that our first 2 picks looks like duds that year. (Moffit in the 3rd round doesn't look that good of a pick either).
I mean his legendary battle with Gruden over the Wilson pick.
Mel Kiper knows more because he studys more tape the average person. That says nothing about his proccess about judging talent which is the criticism he gets. Anyone who can devote as much time as him can learn as much as him. Its about how he uses that info is what annoys me about him.
So, in 2007, you wanted a 4-3 OLB with "Von Miller pass rush skills." That thing about revisionist history I said. There you go.
When you completely miss on your first round pick on a guy that wasn't that well-regarded in the first place, you deserved to be knocked for that. Then, your 3rd rounder (and 2nd pick) isn't really looking so hot on top of that either. I'm not going to bicker over what grade you should get, but that is not a successful draft class.
If he was wrong about Wilson, he certainly wasn't the only person. I'm not so certain Russell Wilson is going to be amazing going forward, either.
If he had the ability to dish out information to NFL teams as a high schooler, he can probably evaluate talent pretty decently. Additionally, if he couldn't evaluate talent, it wouldn't matter how much film he watched. He wouldn't know anything regardless.
Anyone who thinks they know more than Mel Kiper is either ignorant or just in denial. He's watched more film this past week than you have your whole life.
Our QB > Yours
McShay had who? Jimmy Clausen as the next big QB? Personally they are both jokes. If you want actual football knowledge I think you have to listen to Mayock. He's actually respected among scouts and GMs.
