Kiper thinks a lot of things. Many of them are way off base

 

Has anybody ever gone back and checked how his "grades" turn out?

They did. Like everyone else, he has been really right, and really wrong.

Big boards are usually fairly accurate. It's not about mock draft success. It's which players that he had rated highly on the big board turned into good pros. That's what would need to be checked.

Except for Gallery, most Iowa offensive lineman do not dissappoint.

Kiper lied to me about Cedric Benson. I will not let him do it again

They went through his and McShay's picks the last several years a few months ago.. I think they just used their final mock drafts. They did underperform overall, but McShay scored big for JJ Watt to Dallas. Dallas still drafted an All Pro, but it wasn't JJ Watt.

My point is that mock draft accuracy is dumb and shouldn't be what they are graded on. They mock players to "what they think will happen" and not what "they think should happen". WE should look at their overall big boards and see if the players at the top end up as the best players in the draft.

What they did was compare the picks they made for teams vs. what the teams actually selected. It really wasn't a positional thing, but a performance based comparison. They mock by what they think should happen, looking at team needs, etc. At least Kiper and McShay do. They underperformed vs. the real thing which makes sense since if they were better, teams could save a lot of money and fire their scouts .

I think the Bears probably want to address more glaring holes, and then they can pick up my boy Decker next year.

He has been pretty damn good the past 2 years, plus he's a pretty big corner. I wonder if he can start from day 1 and push Jennings into the nickel slot CB where I think he is best suited.

 

Also, if you would of told me Alan Ball would be entering his 9th NFL season, I would of thought you were crazy. As an Illini fan, glad to hear he is a Bear and has had a productive career.

Ball was really good in 2013. Last year, he tore his bicep. Let's hope that has healed.

 

I love that Pace is signing almost everyone to 1 year deals, except for McPhee.

RB Jacquizz Rodgers visiting Halas Hall today.

 

Could be a solid 3rd down back as far as pass blocking goes and his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield goes.

Decent depth for the backfield. He can kind of do it all. Hopefully no more than our #3.

Agreed; I like the bargain basement shopping Pace has done.

This is killing me....

 

What the hells a COP back? It was used describing Rodgers..... Is it "Catcher of Passes" or does it have something to do with his ability to protect the QB or is it because cop sounds like comp and they're saying he's a complimentary back.

I'd say it's probably "change of pace" back.

dios mio, that's probably it....Though Quiz isn't really a change of pace back in comparison to Forte, from all I've read he only has average speed.

 

 

 

...Also, Alan Ball got 3M from the Bears. That's starter money right there.

Listening to an audio snippet of Pace being interviewed about the McDonald signing and I kind of had to cringe. He sounded like a teenager with the way he was talking. He said "We take these things seriously, ya know? But uuummm...". It was the first time I though to myself man I hope this guy didnt dupe us into thinking he was smart. LOL I know its being overly critical just wanted to put it out there. It wasnt just the words he used but it was the way he said them as if he is an aww shucks type of guy.
