He is very good and I don't think he's fallen as much as a lot of these mock drafts indicate. But, college awards winners are not always a good indicator of NFL ability. You'll remember Barrett Jones won nearly every award imaginable, and he went 4th round, and I don't think ever started an NFL game unless it was a fill in for injury. But, I still bet Leatherwood goes higher than many are suggesting. Someone I respect immensely when it comes to the draft recently said he thought Alex would be the 2nd offensive tackle (4th OL) off the board.

I put zero stock in what McShay and Kiper rank players. I said in another post, they miss a lot more than they get right. I understand people value what they say and that’s why they have that job, but I bet my brokerage account the GM’s and team presidents et al don’t listen to anything those guys have to say when choosing players for their teams.

Correct. If they do, they're morons. Teams have an extensive network of scouts that work with the GM, head coach, and front office to set up their boards. It's like Alabama's recruiting board. It changes all year long up until signing day(s), and Saban has the final say. In the NFL, the GM usually sit in the captains chair, but some coaches have more control than others and some owners are more involved than others. And Kiper, McShay and most of those guys do a good job overall, but it's an impossible task to get many right. If you looked at draft boards from 3 random teams, you'd see very significant differences all over based on scouting feedback, team needs, medical info, team interviews, etc...
