Mayock is fairly craptastic. I would start by replacing almost his entire 11-20 with his entire 21-30. I would also remove his entire 5-10 and push them down about 5 spots. The top 5 is easy, who even a blind monkey could pick.

It's funny how the national talking-head group think has pushed players like Te'o, and Lotulelei around...that's exactly how you can tell that none of those guys like Mayock have a single bone of individualism in their body.

I'm actually starting to respect Kiper more for his ideas. He was the first one on the Hayden train...then all of a sudden Hayden is Mayock's favorite CB...what a joke.

I'm not overly thrilled with his list either. And I think Mayock is the best of the bunch. They all are pretty off on draft day though in terms of value, but Mayock usually does a decent job to identifying good players. A few complete duds notwithstanding.

I like Mayock, I really do. However, his evaluation of Jesse Williams is disheartening to me. Especially when Daniel Jeremiah has him at #21 on his top 50 list. What the heck does he NOT see in Williams. Williams Floor is a solid starter @ 3-4 DE, his ceiling is Vince Wilfork with stamina to play more and to be a pocket disruptor in the pass rush. The rest of the DT's all have a little bust potential in them, I see none in Williams, and a higher ceiling than all but 4 of them. Hankins and Jenkins have big bust potential to me and have dropped accordingly, but Williams is an enigma to be rated so low with some real average guys way ahead of him on that list.

The best thing I can say is we all get blinded on certain players with no crosschecks. I have had more than few, but I also have not been this off in preseason evals before. Oh well, he likes Hayden at least

I few I disagree strongly with:

7. Sheldon Richardson - this is too high for me, he is too inconsistent to be up this high, he has a ton of talent but looks like a real bust candidate.

13. Tyler Eifert - Eifert reminds me a lot of slightly worse version of Jermaine Gresham, similar size and speed and both pretty complete players, but lacking just that last bit of speed to take over games. Gresham went 21 in a very strong 2010 draft, and I expect Eifert to end up in the same sort of range, the draft is not as strong as 2010, but Eifert is not quite as good a prospect as Gresham was.

16. Dee Milliner - CB is a prime position and they ALWAYS go higher on draft day, I just don't see this kid fall out of the top 10.

29. Kyle Long - it would be a Bruce Irvin type reach to draft this kid in the 1st round, he is not close to being the top OG in the draft and he has some serious baggage.

37. Keenan Allen - he will be one of these guys who will be sitting around on the best of the rest lists for a LONG time. His slow ass 40 time, his drug test at the combine and his poor interviews, he is in for a slide and a half.

I think a fair number of guys are a bit lower than I think they should be, mostly because of a few players who are very much higher than I think they should be.

The DT class is just very strong this year so there is not going to room for a guy who needs some time to develop that high in the draft.

That's the thing, he is the most Plug and play DT in the draft. He played every postion in the 3-4 for Alabama, graded out over 90%, and even played a little 4-3 DT in the nickel. He played a very high % of snaps as well, more than Dareus did.

Every single other DT coming out has need to develop to impact at the next level. Williams does not. And, he has a higher ceiling, except for the few pass rushers like Richardson, Floyd, and Short. Lotulelei might be comparable, but he tires way too damn easily for me.

Thanks for taking the time to do this MUG..

I feel great about Phillip Thomas..

I just mentioned this in another thread, I have some concerns about how impactful the DEs will be from this draft. I find myself still wanting a rush LB, or taking a second to fourth round DE. With my preference being Quanterus Smith.

He doesn't really stick his neck out at all with any valuations. There's always a few sleepers sneak into the top 100 picks in any draft that make the fans go WTF, but Mike seems to pick a top 100 that doesn't contain any real shocking selections.

Gresham went 21 in a very strong 2010 draft, and I expect Eifert to end up in the same sort of range, the draft is not as strong as 2010, but Eifert is not quite as good a prospect as Gresham was.

16. Dee Milliner - CB is a prime position and they ALWAYS go higher on draft day, I just don't see this kid fall out of the top 10.

29. Kyle Long - it would be a Bruce Irvin type reach to draft this kid in the 1st round, he is not close to being the top OG in the draft and he has some serious baggage.

37. Keenan Allen - he will be one of these guys who will be sitting around on the best of the rest lists for a LONG time. His slow ass 40 time, his drug test at the combine and his poor interviews, he is in for a slide and a half.

I think a fair number of guys are a bit lower than I think they should be, mostly because of a few players who are very much higher than I think they should be.
Isn't Mayock a Notre Dame nut Not surprised at how highly he ranks Eifert considering he's likely watched every single second of tape he's ever done since he picked up a ball. Sure he had Motta in his pre-combine top 5 safeties.

Eifert will be one of those TE you have to really clamp down on in the redzone though. He may be better in the pros then in college.

He doesn't look as fast as guys like Gronk/Graham but on tape he sure catches the ball nice and has great body control. Man I would be super excited if broncos added a killer TE. Hell we could be going for best passing attack ever at that point.

I happen to think DT might be emerging as the 2nd best WR after Megatron so if we add to many more weapons the offense could hit 40 points with regularity.

So much information out there about players, scouting reports, senior bowl reports, youtube videos of tape and on and on even someone like me who doesn't follow college football can come up with a pretty decent top 100.

Now if one of us could do it without the interent I would be impressed. Seriously though how could any one person watch that much football and talk to that many people? Hell I bet one of us could do the Broncos draft using a top 100 we come up with here on the board and we could get a b grade from espn lol.

Mayock does commentary on all Notre Dame games I believe during the season so he does see a lot of the ND players.

That is why I think he is like Gresham, he is a red zone target and a 3rd down guy but he won't stretch the field and he is not a guy who is going to threaten 1000 yards per season.

I stopped paying attention to Mayock after he said Ayers would be the best defensive player in the draft.

I like listening to Mayock, as I'm sure we all do, because we love football and player evaluation. He probably has more access to all of these players year-in and year-out of anybody on the planet. Because of that exposure, he will bring attention to some players that I otherwise never would have heard of. But I don't trust his talent evaluation. Neither do NFL GM's (except for Josh McDaniels, who basically drafted according to Mayock's board).

Mayock also severely inflates a lot of players that play in the Senior Bowl...I think to try to persuade NFL teams to draft them high, so he can say, "see look at all the players who made money this week", when he's commentating the game. It's like his personal showcase of himself.

I just don't get it with some guys. Landry Jones and Kenny Stills, both were productive at OU and have great skills, yet are overlooked.
