Mel Kiper Jr. is the NFL Draft guru everybody recognizes, and because of this, his mock drafts get a lot of attention. He's plugged into the NFL community and gets a lot of insight from general managers and coaches.
This is one of the reasons his mock drafts carry so much weight.
Kiper's latest version features some interesting selections. The biggest surprise is the inclusion of Cincinnati's Derek Wolfe in the first round. Wolfe is a solid prospect, but it would be a shock if he somehow worked his way into the first round.
The upcoming slides include a grade for each of Kiper's picks. I graded them based on the fit for the team and the level of prospect each team landed.
