Kiper = turd
No offense to Warmack, but how does a C/G get projected for the 1st round, much less the top 15 picks? I can understand the value of an OT going 1st, even going top 5.....but a G/C? Unless he can possibly translate into an OT in the Pro's.........he is not a good selection for the 1st round IMHO.
Lots of C/G's have been taken in the backend of the 1st the last few years and I wouldn't be surprised to see at least 2 selected there once more.
1. Eric Ebron, TE, UNC
2. David Yankey, G, Stanford
3. Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB, Nebraska
4. Kareem Martin, DE, UNC
5. Anthony Johnson, DT, LSU
6. De'Anthony Thomas, RB, Oregon
The last time a Guard was taken before the 15th pick was 1997, Chris Naeole to the Saints.
On average for the past two decades, only one Guard has been taken in the first round at all (average position - 21).
Pure Centers (do they even exist anymore?) fair even worse. Last one picked before pick #15 was back in 1993 and almost never see a first round pick in general.

Actually it does ... a lot of "off position" players get rated very highly up to the Draft and then teams bail on them.
A good example is the Giants and Cordy Glenn last year. He was projected as a mid-first round pick and slid to the second. AND that was with him being projected as either a Guard or Tackle.
But Kiper is still a turd.
