Stock Anticipation

I have studied the NFL Draft every day for about the past five years.

With this NFL Draft preseason, I have simply had it. I am done.

I have noticed something very interesting. Ever since Mike Mayock moved Aaron Curry from No. 1 to No. 7 on his big board, now officially every prospect has been nitpicked.

Every prospect's draft stock has been up. Every prospect's draft stock has been down.

It's completely stupid.

From now on, no player is good enough. Every quarterback rated highly will be picked apart like there is no tomorrow.

Many analysts said Matt Ryan had bad accuracy, was inconsistent, and threw too many interceptions.

I know, I ate my crow.

Now, people are saying the same things about Matt Stafford.

At some point, we are getting to a place where there is far too much overanalysis and overscouting.

Every draftnik should now anticipate that every player will be nitpicked thanks to the media. Expect for reporters and television analysts to say that every player's stock is up and down at some point.

Do not bring the knee-jerk decisions. You have to take everything in stride and simply realize that this is a long process, and to not believe everything you hear.

Hey, I thought at least Curry was safe, but I guess I could not have been more wrong.
