He probably thinks TB should be #1 overall, but sees the better scouts not doing so, so he follows suit. He's a follower, not a leader.

Mike Mayock all day! NFL Network better not have that guy doing anything but draft prepping.
Rob Rang is one of the older more reliable evaluators and his website nfldraftscout.com is one of the absolute best. It is a leader in the field not a follower. I do miss Chad Reuter since he left for nfl,com and Dane Brugler is really a novice learning the trade much like McShay. I take his write ups with a grain of salt. I agree with you about Mayock, son of a football coach and he played at every level. You just can't beat that kind of knowledge and experience.

Maybe because he doesn't have a BIAS and is OBJECTIVE in his analysis. That's how he makes his living, he doesn't fall in love with players.
