Kiper,  McShay (and his staff),  Mayock,  Nolan Nawrocki (Pro Football Weekly)

 

All of these people could scout for NFL teams today.     Really.    Seriously.    Not exaggerating.    They understand what pros are looking for.    They look at hours and hours and hours of tape.  

 

It's what they do for a living.    This isn't a hobby for them.    It's their livelihood.      :worthy:

 

Most everyone else....     meh....     Not so much....

 

Not so much.

We disagree.

 

And, for me, at least,  the proof of their talent is their information is out there for people to see all the time, every year.    I'm going to link ESPN's draft page.   On it, you will see to the right, the list of Scouts Inc's top 32 players.   It has their grades.   

 

Now, if you look to the left, you will see a section of looking back at the most recent drafts.   You can click on each year and see who was drafted and the grade Scouts Inc had for each player.    I think their grades look pretty solid to me.

You just don't see many glaring mistakes.    Everyone in the evaluation business makes mistakes.   Doesn't matter what sport, if you're evaluating human beings for a living, you will make mistakes.

 

But the work for Kiper and McShay is there for people to see and judge.    

 

So, for me their work holds up and stands the test of time.

 

Just my two cents....

Kiper has been in BUSINESS since 1980, he doing something right.    And every team gets his publication whether they admit it or not.

 

But Chris Landry is the best.   He is on Fox Radio all the time.    And some NFL teams actually pay him to do scouting for them.    When he comes on the radio I listen.

 

Mayock is good also.   Kiper and McShay fall in love with "numbers" a tad too much for me.    Where as Landry and  Mayock put more emphasis on production ...   JMO

 

Personally I don't think all that much of McShay...      I do like Kiper though.

    • This is my sister's dog. I never liked this type of dog until she got him. They are cute. In two of these pics, he is begging for food. 
    • by seasons end, it will be very close...    you didn’t even mention Pittman or Taylor in that comment, which is concerning after their performances last week. They will be our go-to’s offensively for years... 
    • I like Malamute Huskies The puppies are the cutest   
    • True but the smart and efficient but unspectacular QB comes out every year. None of them ever really amount to much. The best average traits but good IQ QB is Brady followed by Brees. You could probably throw Goff in there too but he was crazy accurate coming out of Cal.   But if you look at all the current great QBs in the league, they all have a standout trait that jumps off the screen. Wilson has his playmaking ability that is almost unnatural when he’s on the move. Mahomes has a ln arm that’s a cheat code and plus athleticism. Watson is a dual threat with elite play making ability. Allen has a cannon arm and is a great runner. Lamar Jackson is self explanatory. Rodgers may be the best thrower of the football ever just in terms of his ability to fit ball into ridiculous windows.    The mental is great but he needs to have some physical trait that jumps off the tape.
    • I love English Bulldogs! That is my buddy there.      I like a lot of the dogs you mentioned. You don't like huskies??!     I like almost all dogs except the small, loud ones. Goldens, Labradors, Huskies and English Bulldogs are my favorites. I also like Portuguese Water Dogs.
