No. Mayock, Kiper, etc. are there for the general public. They're there to sell information to the masses of the general public.
Teams only listen to their scouts and other executives. That's why there are many "surprises" in drafts. Like when the Vikings took Christian Ponder with the 12th pick when he was expected to be a 2nd rounder or when the Titans took Jake Locker 10th overall. Teams like certain players Mayock or other teams don't like.
