    I saw that. Terrible. Trufant to my Lions?

    Jordan is becoming one of the more overrated prospects I can remember. I feel silly saying it since I liked Curry, but Jordan is the new Curry it seems. Lots of on paper skills, none of them well developed. Jordan at 15 to the Saints I'd get. Jordan in the top 5 is a stretch. I kind of get it if Jax takes him, as he might fit into Bradley's different style of defense.

    Jordan has #1 overall ability. True, it didn't play on the field, but it's that kind of draft. Teams are banking on these JPP-type switches from inexperienced/non-dominant college players with insane athletic ability to top NFL player.

    For reference, KC might well be playing a defense similar to Jacksonville. They certainly will if they take a pass-rusher as that's how they'll get 3 guys on the field (Houston, Hali, #1).

    Even if this played out like this...The Vikes not taking Patterson at 23 and Smith at 25. Seems logical to me.

    This draft is a little thin, but not enough to take a guy like Jordan #1. I don't see how you can hate on a Joeckel pick in order to take Jordan or Jarvis Jones or something.

    Jordan helps the Chiefs' biggest need (pass rush). His upside is pretty much the best defensive player in the league. There's a lot to like. I wouldn't go to war for taking the guy or anything, but I'd like to hit a grand slam at #1, not a solid double. If I miss? Eh, I've got other batters up in the next round. Or next year. Or the year after.

    I think Jordan has become pretty overrated, not just as a prospect, but in terms of his upside as well. If you really wanted to swing for the fences on an outside pass rusher, I don't see how you justify him over Ansah, or Mingo for that matter.

    Is that a terrible mock? Yep.

    Although if I could magically look into the future and put up what actually is going to happen on draft day, we would all think it is a terrible mock and rip like half the picks.

    It seems like most NFL drafts have a head-scratching Top 10 pick - the type of pick that would be heavily ridiculed in a mock draft. I'd say if there isn't a head-scratcher in the Top 10, it is probably unrealistic in that regard.

    I would've agreed around 2 years ago, but it seems the NFL is more about speed now than ever. Guys who can get off the ball and dip around an OT, nothing's more valuable. I don't see a whole lot of evidence of dominant quick-twitch rush on tape, but the glimpses of it are special. Unblockable stuff. No question it would be a very risky pick, quite frankly for anyone in the top 10 or so, not just top 5 or #1.

    It's that kind of draft. A terrible looking mock now might be closer to reality than something most agree is logical. That is what happens when you have no clear cut blue chip players and a lot of similarly graded players from 5-50.

    If the Cards not only passed on Johnson, but Fisher too...someone needs to get fired.

    That's quite the mind boggling statement.
