kiper needs to put the crack pipe down.......

3 Kansas City - Mark Sanchez QB USC...i just don't see anyone paying the top 5 ransom for a 1 year wonder. its possable but if the chiefs are switching to the 3-4, they better load up on players to run it.
9 Green Bay - Malcolm Jenkins CB Ohio St.....they're switching to a 3-4 this year, and don't have the front 7 to run it...
15 Houston - Everette Brown DE Florida St.....way to small to be a 4-3 DE
18 Chicago - Tyson Jackson DE LSU.... not exacly the best choice for the D they run,why would they pass on good pass rushers like jerry or johnson, for jackson?
28 Philadelphia (from Carolina) - Michael Oher OT Mississippi...if someone would trade back into the first for the likes of sam baker, no way would oher fall to 28 !!!

Can you see Detroit taking a LB at 20 and leaving Oher on the table? They really need someone to protect the young QB they just drafted.

mack is not only the best center in this class, but he'd probably be the best guard....hartwig, can also move to guard..

So True! Here is a question.....if Mack and Duke Robinson are on the board for the Steelers.........who do you pick?? Mack for the versatility, or Robinson because he is just a pure mauler inside at guard?

after reading all the senior bowl reports . i'd have to go with mack. he gives you options, that your not gonna get with robinson. you can put him at center and try hartwig at guard, or leave hartwig, and put him in at either guard position. it also gives you flexability for not only the rest of this draft, but future drafts. you take mack, then you have the option of taking either another center or guard.

If they Lions are smart, they won't take Stafford with the first pick. Believe it or not quarterback is not even close to their biggest need and Stafford wouldn't be the best player available either. That being said they are the Lions, so I can see that happening.

Kansas City won't take Sanchez. They like Thigpen a whole lot and, to be honest, he played well enough to start next year and has an okay record with that team.

The thing to remember about those statements is that quarterbacks generally drop a lot once the real draft rolls around. For some reason, guys like Kiper seem to enjoy pumping the best QBs of the class up to the top five picks even if they are more mid to lower first round guys.

I don't see Buffalo going with a TE. Not that high at least. Robert Royal is an old but good player.

The Eagles won't take a runningback and really, they shouldn't. What they need to do is give Correll Buckhalter more carries and use Westbrook in spots. They should go... RECEIVER.

Has Hakeem Nicks really risen that much? I don't think the Vikings really need help at receiver... If a Harvin was there maybe. But there are still better players on the board and they have bigger needs.

Tampa Bay wtf? Is someone really going to take Josh Freeman THAT high? I know there has been some hot talk about him but wow. To me, that's reaching really far.

Detroit has some quality linebackers. With Schwartz there as the new HC I can see them going defense but I don't think they'll take a backer with Dizon and Sims being young guys who can play now.

I agree that Oher won't drop that far and also, I would rather us take more of a pure guard or tackle like Robinson than Mack - but that's just me. I know a lot of you guys like him.

Anyway there is my take. Not Kiper's best effort in my opinion.
