Kiper, with McShay and Florio a distant second. Mayock IMO is about as far from a tool as it gets.

I agree, Mayock knows his stuff.

Kiper makes me want to swallow glass every time he speaks.
Florio is no draft guru and I'm pretty sure he would agree with that. He's an attorney who started the PFT website as a hobby by posting links to NFL stories from around the country with editorial comments. He built it into the defacto NFL newswire service . . . but he's no draft guru.

I'm aware of such things....I just think the guy acts a little douchey, looks a little douchey, and it was his article or editorial that gave me the idea. I respect the guy though (like I have said before) for getting out of the law game and making his site grow and grow.

With that said, I'm not surprised that smug prick Kiper is leading the poll.

Mutant Tarantino!
Florio is not a draft guru nor does he claim to be. To me it's not even close, it's Todd McShay. I actually turn the channel or just don't listen when he talks and I LOVE the NFL draft and NFL draft coverage. Mayock is great, Kiper is Kiper. His books have gotten worse and worse (lighter) every year and sometimes he rambles but he is the godfather of the NFL draft and he is usually pretty accurate with his mock draft and rankings. Dave Te Thomas is really good, he doesen't put his Poor Man's guide NFL draft books anymore but that was the best draft book (700+ pages). Scott Wright and Rob Rang are two rising stars, IMO. I like that Walter NFL draft site as well.
Florio does seem like an A-Hole. You could tell Rich Eisen didn't/doesen't like him.
I can get this Rams sig out of my posts even when I choose 49ers.

Looks like a christmas photo from 1987
McShay just piggy backs other guys work and claims it as his own, which is the MO of most ESPN "experts". Atleast Kiper has his own opinions.
