Default Mike Mayock on 2012 Draft

Too much info to parse out all the tweet remnants, but I cleaned out a lot of it and posting the rest as is. Would read bottom to top.
================================================== =====================

Most interesting Mayock nuggets: 1) Jeffery, Burfict not worth 1st-day picks 2) Tannehill surefire 1st-rder 3) Kendall Wright top-15 player.
9h
Mayock on Dre Kirkpatrick arrest: "Didn't turn out to be much. I don't think in the world of the NFL .. that it's going to hurt him at all."
9h
Mayock on #Alabama RB Trent Richardson: "Tremendous feet for size. Really good balance & vision. This kid is tough and he's a 3-down back."
10h
Mayock on #Baylor WR Kendall Wright: "I think he'll run a sub-4.4 and probably go in the top-15 picks."
10h
Mayock on #Florida WR/RB Chris Rainey: "Might run 4.25. Quick, explosive, fast. Catches well. A lot of people value him in 3rd or 4th rd."
10h
Mayock has 4th-round grade on Kirk Cousins. Draft him as a backup and he has "some potential to be a T.J. Yates."
10h
Mayock on #MichiganState QB Kirk Cousins: "Good feet, good athlete. Good, not great arm. Thought he had trouble moving, throwing to left."
10h
Mayock on #OklahomaState WR Justin Blackmon: "As long as he runs 4.5s or better ... I don't see any way he could get past No. 7.
10h
More Mayock on Darius Fleming: "Natural rush ability no matter where you line him up. He's a draftable DE/OLB/ST. Gonna surprise some ppl."
10h
Mayock on #NotreDame OLB Darius Fleming: "Surprised he's not higher rated. Once teams put tape on, they say wow there's something here."
10h
Mayock on #UNC DEQuinton Coples: "I'm not a (fan). I'd be scared to death there because he did not play well or hard as a senior."
10h
Mayock on Brandon Weeden-Chris Weinke comparisons: "I think he's much more developed than that and a better quarterback than that."
10h
Mayock says #Memphis NT Dontari Poe has Haloti Ngata upside. "He's that big & has that kind of movement skills. But he's so raw it's scary."
10h
Mayock on possibility of Luke Kuechly to #Eagles: "I think he starts day one & really solidifies what they've got going on up front there."
10h
Mayock on #LSU DT Michael Brockers: "Potential top-10 pick. He's a really explosive 6'5/300 defensive tackle. Concern is he's a 1-year guy."
10h
Mayock on #Georgia TE Orson Charles: "I think he's a second-round pick that goes somewhere between 33 and 45."
10h
Mayock on #Baylor QB Robert Griffin: "Bottom line, to me, is he is a playmaker. He is a playmaker and that's what this league is all about."
10h
Mayock on #Browns trade up: "If it's me, I'm looking at that hard. I'm looking to get RG3." Calls QB "most important position in sports."
10h
Mayock doesn't believe #Iowa LT Riley Reiff is a top-10 talent in the draft, but very well could be due to the "value of the position."
10h
Mayock on #Alabama RB Trent Richardson: "I think the last guy where you banged the table this hard was Peterson when he was the 7th pick."
10h
Mayock on #OhioState WR DeVier Posey: "I think he's a mid-round wide receiver. Does everything pretty well, nothing elite."
10h
Mayock on #OhioState LT Mike Adams: "Helped himself at the Senior Bowl. Most people had 2nd-round grades on him but he's moving up."
10h
Mayock on #Stanford OT Jonathan Martin: "Gifted athletically. Needs to get a little bit stronger but will protect the quarterback."
11h
Mayock on #NotreDame WR Michael Floyd: "Cleaned himself up on and off the field. Exceptional (senior) year. He needs to run well."
11h
Mayock on Mohamed Sanu: "Not sudden, doesn't have great acceleration." Said that like Alshon Jeffery, Sanu does not create separation.
11h
Mayock says 4 receivers should be drafted in the 1st round: Blackmon, Kendall Wright, Michael Floyd, Rueben Randle. Not Jeffery or Sanu.
11h
Mayock said he has heard rumors about Jeffery ballooning up. Emphasized that Jeffery "does not separate" and must be in shape at Combine.
11h
More Mayock on Alshon Jeffery: "Big and fast is good. Big and slow is bad. Bottom line is ... he has got to run well."
11h
Mayock on Alshon Jeffery: "Does not separate. What those guys run is important. He needs to run somewhere in those mid 4.5s."
11h
More Mayock on RG3: "He'll stay in (the pocket) and take hits. He initially looks to get the football down the field. And I like that."
11h
Mayock on RG3: "I love everything about the kid. Question I have is, he doesn't throw w/ anticipation. In that offense, he doesn't have to."
11h
Mayock described David Wilson as a "downhill, one-cut back" with highly impressive feet. "I've got him as a second-round guy."
11h
Mayock on #VaTech RB David Wilson: "There's some ppl that think he could be a 1st-round pick. Really quick, great feet and balance."
11h
Mayock says he just put on Vontaze Burfict's tape, forgetting about off-field & penalties. And Burfict was an unimpressive football player.
11h
More Mayock on Vontaze Burfict: "Instincts aren't good, gets enveloped by big bodies, runs around blocks. I don't see first round at all."
11h
Mayock on Vontaze Burfict: "I'm not a fan at all. I just watched a bunch of his tape the other day. I came away unimpressed."
11h
More Mayock on Kuechly: "Playmaking & instincts are so good." Compares to #Cowboys LB Sean Lee, but better athleticism, has never been hurt.
11h
Mayock on Luke Kuechly: "Best inside linebacker in draft by far. More production than you can ever imagine. Better athlete than ppl think."
11h
Mayock on Matt Kalil: "Wonderfully gifted. Great feet, long arms, fits athleticism bill for an All-Pro left tackle." Lacks "core strength."
11h
Mayock expects Ryan Tannehill to be a "first-round guy." Says decision-making issues are fixable, perhaps with more experience.
11h
Mayock on Ryan Tannehill: "Big strong athlete with a really good arm. ... (But) lacks anticipation & too often throws into coverage."
11h
Mayock expects #Stanford QB Andrew Luck to run 40 time in the 4.7s. "But more than anything, he's gonna win the battle in the board rooms."
11h
Mayock had issue with reporter asking him to compare recent 1st-rd QBs to Andrew Luck and rank: "What are we playing fantasy football here?"
11h
Mayock on RG3: "One of the most gifted kids in the last several years. ... Maybe the most exciting young player in this year's draft."
11h
Mayock says wide receiver is #Patriots biggest need. "Vertical wide receiver could really help them."
11h
Mayock: #Wisconsin OLs Peter Konz & Kevin Zeitler are both "late one to mid two" -round picks. Says interior OL is strength of draft class.
11h
Mayock says #Illinois DE Whitney Mercilus is more of a "late one, early two." Draft stock will be helped by weak class of defensive ends.
11h
Mayock on Whitney Mercilus: "Fairly gifted kid. Some natural pass-rush ability. Little bit of a 1-yr wonder. Not stout at point of attack."
12h
Mayock also pulled Zach Brown of #UNC & Vontaze Burfict of #ArizonaSt out of his top-5 linebackers. Replaced by Ronnell Lewis, Sean Spence.
