Has anybody ever compared the Leading Pundits and Prognosticators' pre-draft rankings with the actual performance of players 2-3 years later? It would be great to know who has been effective and should have more credibility.

Sounds like a good business opportunity.
Maybe even a TV gig.

Of course you'd be hated by the people you're critiquing which would then turn into sports TV drama. Perfect!

I watched the youtube version of NBC sports for all of the predraft position analysis.
Chris Simms (Who I really didn't like before I watched it) was a very good watch and I came away thinking....this guy really understands the game and he put in the work for some excellent analysis.
If you have time before the draft today, give him a look.

Him being on it means there’s no way I will watch it. He’s a moron.

If he’s so smart then why did he think Brees was only the 10th best QB in the NFL heading into 2019? He has always badmouthed Brees but he has also had a ton of other ridiculous takes.

Kirk Herbstreit is a breath of fresh air imo. He cares nothing about the combine and everything about the game film. He seems to know every prospect, even from the small schools, on a personal level from the time they were high school recruits to becoming current NFL prospects.

Thanks! This study tells which Mockers accurately mock the results of the Draft, which is a different question, but also useful and interesting. It looks like Walter Football has the most credibility at picking the picks, busts and all.

I was also wondering which "experts" were good at identifying actual future talent (rather than busts).

I don't care about the draft that much, beyond learning who the pick was.
I never got into all the draft hype.

Aren't there rumors about Kiper pushing certain, personally preferred players, higher on his draft board to get them higher?

And who was he pounding the desk about years ago saying he would be the best pick and then ended up falling out of football? JaMarcus?

Oh, here it is:
“If Jimmy Clausen is not a successful quarterback in the NFL, I’m done. That’s it. I’m out.”

I ask this question every year and it seems no one has taken the time to do this. Would be a great website.

Charlie Campbell of Walterfootball has been the best recently. He has inside info.

This year he has the Saints selecting Queen.
