Mel Kiper Jr: Here’s the first of many profiles this week on the poofy-haired draftnik. Obviously, this epic moment is going to get mentioned: “Who is Mel Kiper? He’s never been a player, he’s never been a coach, he’s never been a scout, he’s never been an administrator and all of a sudden he’s an expert. He has no more credentials to do what he’s doing than my neighbor, and my neighbor’s a postman.” Bill Tobin, that will live for as long as Kiper is alive. How is that not on youtube? In actual Kiper news, he rates Jimmy Clausen higher than Sam Bradford, and the 4th best overall player in the draft. Note: Clausen’s agent is Gary Wichard … one of Kiper’s BFFs. [Wash Post]
