ESPN’s NFL Draft expert Mel Kiper is the single most respected analyst when it comes to the NFL draft. Every year we flock to his mock to see which prospect he is penciling in for which team. He lives and breathes the NFL draft.
Arguably the most entertaining aspect of draft coverage is to hear the analysis “The Draft Guru” Mel Kiper has to offer on each and every prospect. He is simply a plethora of knowledge, and although he doesn’t accurately predict every player’s future correctly, he knows more than just about every other analyst about each prospect.
Following the draft, when every analyst is working diligently to analyze each organization’s picks to give out a letter grade, we know the one person we want to read and hear from is “The Hair” Kiper himself. His reports cards have been handed out.
Which team will be the valedictorian?
Which teams are on the high honor roll?
Which teams were average?
And who is wearing the dunce cap for the rest of the offseason?
We’re going to address each and every report card, from worst to best, handed out by Mel Kiper, which he based primarily on needs and value this year, to see if he is truly the draft day guru I say he is.
