Just released his latest 2 round mock draft. Melvin going #9 to Jacksonville and Gilmore going #21 to the Bengals. However, Alshon is nowhere to be found in either round. He's got Brian Quick (who?) from App St and AJ Jenkins from Illinois going before Jeffery. What a joke.
For most of the draft season, it's been a two-quarterback race at the top, with one clear leader. Now that teams have gotten to see more of Ryan Tannehill, he is in the mix within the top 10 picks. This mock goes two full rounds.
That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Not a minor error, a HUGE mistake. He gets paid for doing this?
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
He is a dumbass. He will be very WRONG on draft day.

This whole 'he's fat and slow' thing has gathered so much momentum that even our fans on this sight are buying it, though. Everyone suddenly forgets that after Nunn went down, Shaw would get drilled in the earhole literally every time he tried to look down field to pass.
Even before Shaw, remember Auburn? They sacked us six times, I think, and they only had like three sacks on the season before that game. Can't throw it when D-linemen are face-planting you.

I like watching his best available board during the draft....the same people stay up there for 2 or 3 rounds...LOL

I don't agree with Mel. I think Alshon gets picked no later than mid-2nd round. I don't feel the need to call him names just because I disagree with him, though.
Spurrier...I appreciate him plenty
I agree you shouldn't call him names because you disagree - but in my opinion - he is a MORON.
It may have been just a mistake on his part. After Alshon's pro day Mel commented that Alshon had really helped himself and was back in 1st round consideration. He deals with agents and does promote certain players at different times. I think the one concern remaining with alshon is his work ethic.
Sure, he got off the weight for the combine and pro day, but I think some are still skeptical. Even with all of that, I'll be surprised if someone doesn't draft him at the bottom of the 1st.

What agents is he tied to? And what players are getting extra shine this class?

Ha, was thinking about that today when I first saw this mock draft. I always notice that and get disappointed each time his best available isn't called at the podium.
May have to make that drinking game this year.
Draft day drinking game... Sounds interesting. Take a drink every time someone says 'good feet '.
His latest big board came out the day of our pro day therefore Alshon hadnt shined yet.
I hope Mel Kiper doesn't log onto TBS, open this thread, and read that I called him a moron on this message board. I may ruin his Wednesday.
Masquerading as an expert lends him to certain things, though.
Like, I think he's an idiot for this draft board, considering his chat from last week. He has less and less credibility every week.

Mel,Do you think Alshon Jeffery's Pro Day, especially his 4.47 40 time, helped get him back into the first round of the draft?
Mel Kiper (1:11 PM)
I've heard as good as 4.42. He weight 212, the lightest he's been since high school. That helps him. That solidifies a second round grade for him. You have to see what his best body weight will be once he gets the pads back on.
I have no proof, but I'd say it's safe to assume he's connected to certain agents/schools, considering this was a week ago and no receivers have had better pro days since AJ.
Also, "solidified a second round grade" is hard for me to believe. I'm no pro scout, but if those numbers only solidify a second round grade, the NFL is in horrible shape with it's current GM's.
He was tied to Gary Wichard before Wichard's death.
What????Mel called Alshon "fat and slow" , the only difference is that Mel's comments may actually cost Alshon a great deal of money.
Mel's comments? The only things that'll cost Alshon a great deal of money are a knife and fork.
