    Talk to a coach or talent evaluator. Fuck the "gurus."

    Talk to coaches of teams he played against. The kid's coach might be a bit biased.

    Who the hell is Mel Kiper Jr.?


    Have you ever seen Kiper and Joey Buttafucco in same room?

    I second that. If you can't get college coaches talk to the high school coaches whose teams played against this kid. That even emphasizes the local angle even more.

    eff the gurus. none since buchsbaum has been worth a darn. the guy dedicated his life to the nfl draft, and had the respect of EVERY -- and i mean EVERY -- nfl exec in the league. even a dick like belichick was respectful of joel.

    anyone here who ridicules the late buchsbaum is an efftard. everyone after him -- including espn star kiper -- knows NOTHING. joel, on the other hand, knew more than anyone i've ever known, regarding draft stuff.

    when we lost joel, we lost the genuine article.

    For the record, I wasn't making fun of Buchsbaum... As Shockey pointed out, he was the best guru ever...

    this was a tremendous story. a must-read for anyone who fancies themselves a joel/draftnik.

    I like Scott Wright of NFL Draft Countdown.com. Guy know his stuff AND his site is 100 percent free - and very informative and well-organized.
