Mel Kiper said Lions Should Trade Up to #1 for Milliner?!?
 
I guess I'll be watching NFL Network the whole way this year.

Sounds good to me.

K Train 04-17-2013 05:13 PM

They should just do something crazy like stay put and draft.....


DEE MILLINER

ESPN's ratings must really suck. SHOCK VALUE = VIEWERS!

vidae 04-17-2013 05:19 PM

Now now everyone, I think Mel is on to something here..

Mel is like in his own little world with the draft until like a few days before the draft starts then he finds out what teams might want to do. Mike Williams #1 Overall!!!!!

But if you guys trade down to #5, you might miss out on these stud LT prospects. What then???

I just saw his mock draft. It's terrible. Te'o at 15, Kyle Long to the Bears, Of course he tries to get cute and have Geno drop all the way to 25. At this point, you want your mock drafts to be accurate. If you want to say that you think Milliner is the best player in the draft or that the QBs suck, do it with your rankings.

This. Mel is a hack now that he's become more worried about being relevant than being credible.

but what if you have to settle for lane johnson over joekel...lol

MI_Buckeye 04-17-2013 05:37 PM

I actually would be fine with the Lions trading up to 3 to get either Fisher or Joeckel, because I think Johnson is overrated. Moving up for a player who would probably be a slight reach where they are already picking would be ludicrous.

He always was a hack, but the internet has made it easier for more talented people to be heard.

If YFS had been on the scene in 1980, ESPN would have probably hired him instead of Mel.

KC is desperate though. It might only take a 7th rounder. lol

vidae 04-17-2013 06:15 PM

There is just no way the Chiefs would only take a 7th to move back from 1 to 5 :P

So serious... I was kidding. :tomatoes:

Mel's absolute final mock tends to be ok, that's when he drops the sensationalist crap and actually bothers to match need to value as well as using the inside contacts he's accumulated over the years.

Everything else is garbage.

mightytitan9 04-17-2013 08:01 PM

Anything Mel gives out for free is usually garbage. His views on draft day are ok

P-L 04-17-2013 08:02 PM

The Lions have HUGE needs at corner, left tackle, and defensive end. Why would they give up assets to move up when they are guaranteed to fill one of their needs at #5?

Fixed it for you. You wish haha

BallerT1215 04-17-2013 08:08 PM

CB will never....ever....go #1.

Robcards 04-17-2013 08:40 PM

Umm, wow. So much for my hopes of Milliner falling to the Jets at 9 then, right Mel? Unbelievable what people will do for publicity. This is worse than Greg Cossell's Nassib top 5 and Barkley day 3 nonsense.

descendency 04-17-2013 09:25 PM

If Milliner could catch, I would agree, but if Milliner could catch ... he would be an all time rare prospect.

brat316 04-17-2013 09:29 PM

I wonder if he goes on a limb himself or espn makes him.
