    Very interesting stuff. I really like Pryor, but I think they've got him about 15-20 positions too high. Unless he shows me things that I don't believe he can do at the combine, I don't see him as a top 20 guy, despite team needs.

    Bucky has a very interesting WR top 5.

    What do you think, Playoffs and anyone else, about Sammy Watkins as #2 despite posting that thing from Peshek in another thread you posted breaking down the "top 4" WRs.

    lol, now he's starting to do a better job of looking like every other big board out there.

    I'm glad those are "his" adjustments.

    I like Calvin Pryor, but he's starting to remind me a little of DJ Hayden. Good player starting to be projected too high. I do like that he can play both safety positions though, but still too high IMO.

    Daniel Jermiah has clearly demonstrated why he has been fired as an NFL scout 3 different times in 6 years. And why he is now a TV journalist and no longer a NFL scout.

    You can choose to accept his evaluations or not. Do so at your own risk. You've been warned.

    Not trying to single Texian out, but I think people here are too stringent on what scouts they do or do not give merit to...probably based on how that particular scouts views align with their own.

    Jeremiah spent 8 seasons as NFL scout for 3 different teams; Browns, Ravens and most recently the Eagles and was the starting QB for Appalachian State for 3 seasons. I can only find info that he was fired by one organization and that was the Browns, and we all know how well they handle their personnel.

    Regardless, Jeremiah's resume is more prolific than everyone on this forums combined, I think dismissing his opinion completely is foolish. I will take the word of a guy who was fired from an NFL job over the the word of a guy who sells insurance any day of the week.

    Besides, what does it really matter who we choose to "follow" it's not like it has any impact on who the Texans take or how they play on Sundays...

    Valid point and I hear you.

    With that said, some 'scouts' frequently suck a lot more than others. This can be argued, but is hard to deny.

    Random example: Matthew Berry, the LEAD fantasy football expert for ESPN, was a writer in Hollywood before coming over to ESPN AKA Sports Hollywood.

    I don't think anyone should be written off without even listening, but I agree w/ Texian when he says take their info with a grain of salt. Even if your grain differs from his or theirs.

    Some guys are naturally contrarians, obviously someone will be wrong every year, some more than others, but sometimes they are right too.
