On an episode of NFL Live last week, Mel Kiper was asked by Todd McShay to make a bold prediction about the players taken in the 2013 NFL draft. Here is what he had to say:
McShay: You have seven rounds of picks, give me something, Kiper.
Kiper: I'll tell ya, how about if you had a player who is arguably one of the best workout warriors, he was one of the most productive linebackers in this draft, which meant he has it all, right?
McShay: I like him.
Kiper: Then I tell you he's gonna be the 66th pick and go in the third round, what would you think about that choice?
McShay: I think a lot of teams passed on a good player
Kiper: And what would you say if he had a Raider mentality? You like it, right?
McShay: I'd say he should probably go to the Oakland Raiders.
Kiper: There he went, Oakland Raiders take Sio Moore from Connecticut. Connecticut; all kind of players on the defensive side moving into the NFL. Sio Moore's gonna be outstanding, he's gonna attack, he can get after the quarterback, he's a tremendous tackler, he's instinctive, he can run, he's versatile... I think he will turn out to be - Sio Moore, linebacker Connecticut, 66th overall pick in the third round - one of the best defensive players coming out of this draft.
