Mel Kiper Jr. says Kyle Wilson might be a first-rounder; Iupati gets more acclaim, too

By Chadd Cripe

For the second straight day, an ESPN draft guru said Thursday morning that former Boise State cornerback Kyle Wilson could be selected in the first round of the NFL Draft.

Mel Kiper Jr. made the case for Wilson on Thursday morning on SportsCenter. He didn't have Wilson listed among his top five cornerbacks going into this week's Senior Bowl practices.

"Had an inconsistent year, but great leader, student of the game, great athletic ability, he's been strong in coverage," Kiper Jr. said. "He may have moved ... into the late first round."

Todd McShay, who often disagrees with Kiper Jr., made similar comments Wednesday morning.

Wilson plays in the Senior Bowl on Saturday.


Idaho guard Mike Iupati made Sporting News Today's list of the five players starring at the Senior Bowl.

"With mammoth size and a nasty disposition on the field, Iupati has been punishing defensive linemen in drills," the story said.

kiper is dreaming sixth round pick competition poor maybe practice squad player


Are you really this incredibly stupid? I know you've been trying for the last several days to convince everyone you are, but thought it must be an act or you're a Vandal. Would you care to bet your house against mine on Wilson not going until the sixth round?

I know it's tempting but

Don't feed the trolls.

Weisberg....It rubs the lotion on its skin

In the land of internet when one really doesnt know too much about anyone else it is a good rule of thumb to avoid those that seem overly creepy. And weisberg you fit that bill. I dont know if you have voice recognition software becasue you are blind or if that is just BS but it doesnt excuse the creepy vibe you give off. Like a character in a anthony hopkins movie you are a piece of work. Weather your hatred or your handicap are your failings I dont know. But I do know that You are never right and always confrontational.

Might be onto something there....

' it puts the lotion on, it does what it's told ' one of the greatest move lines. Weisberg, you think you know the Broncos, I think huffin glue. College football experts all over the country think your wrong, why should we believe you, over them ? Please look up the word 'denial', that my friend is at least one of your major problems. Get help, and go Broncos.

Seahawks fan here

I'd love to see him in Seahawks blue and green. If he slips to the 2nd round, I hope the 'hawks use their draft pick on him. They could really use the help on D.

1st Rounder

Hope he does go in the 1st. Guarantees more money and this guy is deserving. Good player and person

"Had an inconsistent year"

Wrong. When you are a lockdown corner opposing offenses will not test you. This was the case with KW in the first half of the year. Towards the second half of the year teams started going for the broke and paid the price with KW's 3 picks (1 pick six). Plus KW was put into a different position for the Fiesta Bowl (safety) in a differnt scheme and still had heck of a game making a key play in the first quarter (sack on Dalton) that set the tone for the rest of the game.

inconsisten yes

most overrated player in college a dirty player needs to work on tackling drills a nom qualifier good ridance a project and a practice squad player


It was actually two pick sixes.

Weisberg needs to step up

Hey Weisberg - Come on, step up and admit where you went to school (if at all)!! - my money says you are a typical SEC homer who feeds his own insecurities and paranoia by ripping down other programs. Guessing, tho, that you are too cowardly to tell us..... Yep, a lot easier to stay in the shadows and throw out loony, anonymous statements than it is to man up and make a defensible statement..... you are good for a laugh, though!


work onit

Weisberg? Just a "little guy" with a myriad of insecurities!

You've probably never played the game and obviously don't have an understanding of what it's all about. Have you ever sought professional help for your problems? I do have a real problem seeing any humor with someone like yourself with so many insecurities. Please get some therapy before it's too late.


played not for a mid mijor

just wrong....

on so many levels Weisberger. You probably ended up here because other chat room panels have a method of reporting irritatating people to the moderators and they have all excluded you from their discussions. Kyle is a class person both on and off the field and for anyone to state otherwise is - just wrong. Anyone who can learn a new position and play it so flawlessly in 40 days, as Kyle did in the Fiesta Bowl, is not only smart but a heck of an athlete! he will go early in the draft.


Weisburger, don't forget the lifts in your shoes when you go out to check the mail today.


Waterboy doens't count as


Couldn't carry the water for a "water girl." He has never been to college, thus he never played the game. Probably kiddie football before one of them "tots" introduced that boy to the grass.

What you doing now Weisberg - someone give you a job as the janitor at U of I? If that is so, you are giving janitors a bad name. Most of them that I have known spell really good. For an example of my inference to your ability to spell,In a retort you made a little while ago you said "Football" as if we were to believe you played with the guys? But the sticker was, and I quote, "played not for a mid mijor." What in the world is a mid mijor Weisberg? Later on stud - GO BRONCOS


having fun yet nerd

Is it fair ?

Weisberg is being treated like collective f---puppet. He made his bed, now he gets to sleep in it. Comfy weisberg ? Sorry for any offensive---, but hey you earned it . Got to give you some props, your really good at making an a.., never mind, I forgot who I was talking to.

mid major

yes bronconation you will always be one

Kyle Wilson will succeed and some feedback

Profile of the type of person we are seeing here, the object of much self-inflicted derision:

Not nurtured almost from birth. Spent very little time being held and/or nursed.

Not close to father. Perhaps doesn't know who father is.

Early years marked by having few friends and activities. Mixed poorly with children of similar age.

Middle school years were problematic both in school and in social activities. Likely there were problems with teachers, classmates (i.e., verbal and physical confrontations in which nearly all were "lost"), and maybe even the law.

Possibly a high school dropout or one who barely got through (or maybe still trying to finish). Had (or has) a very small circle of acquaintances, none of the opposite sex. Never has participated (other than vicariously) in athletics. Most likely a very nonathletic type.

Has severe problems with self expression. Resorts to using contrary viewpoints and negative statements more to gain attention than to proffer sound discussion. Reverts towards insolence when confronted.

What we have here is a cry for attention and/or help. Nothing more. The initial post was a broadcast to "notice me". It's hard to feel sorry when someone becomes inflammatory and abusive. This person is unfortunate and, unfortunately, just like so many others in our society, isn't likely to get needed help. That's when we encounter bad endings and violence.

This post will surely elicit juvenile denials and further attempts to insult. That's entirely expected.

He'll eat your liver with some

fava beans !! watch out! What do you want to bet he has to turn his light off on halloween. Creepy to the max.

weisberg, you already told us you are blind

you forgot to tell us you are also stupid.


nerds getting your attention just kidding all you nerds keep it up nerds i am now serious bronco nation you will get respect when you get in a real conference see ya nerds

Weisberg Almost Caught

They are currently tracking his IP address from his comments. What an idiot. The warden is going to ban him again. Oh by the way Weisberg I really did not know that the correctional facilities had conferences, well that is out of the showers that is.


Did you say above that Kyle is a non qualifier? BSU doesn't accept non qualifiers.....try again..........A year from now Kyle will be a millionaire and you will still be online in your mothers basement.........Good luck with that


BSU has won TWO BCS bowl games...........they are no mid major anymore...........

Why are you guys even

Why are you guys even responding to some troll? This article is about Wilson and he will go high in the draft. He has been overlooked because he doesn't play east of the Mississippi or in SoCal. It is amazing that all the BSU seniors playing in the Fiesta bowl are thought to go in the first round. Yeah, that's right. Wait till NEXT year when there are a few more seniors playing.

Oh boy, is this great!

Way to go Kyle. I like it when I see hard working kids finish college and then work hard to be in the NFL. He will be rewarded with a long career.

Wiesenburg; I know you do this just to bring something into your life and you regard it as fun, but, what if you tried to add something to the conversation. I'm sure you could find just as much fun in posting something worthwhile and maybe people would respond to you in a more positive way. Really. Try it. You may even be able to develope some friendships. Or continue being you and we will all imagine the poor little blind guy in the basement, wearing mismatched clothing, with his lunch on his shirt, mashing zits and licking it off his fingers.







Like I said before


looks like a med malfunction

strange indeed.

Blue pill warning maybe--hope he saw a doctor.

Like a midair collision with a tugboat


Alright, I tried. I'm not sure dumbberg is not in a diabetic coma, but if he isn't, well then, all bets are off. Creepy, strange....I don't know. Maybe, not only is he blind, he has to write with his tounge, or lip, or something and he is seizing. Or, just jacking so hard he can't hold still enough to use his computer. Maybe he is a tweeker. Smoking so much meth he is dilusional. Teeth all falling out, open sores all over his body, being tube fed down in his mothers basement with a catheter and rectal tube in place and his computer for entertainment. Maybe, just maybe, it won't last long and we will be out of our misery.

Maybe we could hook him up with Jocdoc. They sound like a nice couple.
