While Kiper is no scout, I do look to his rankings because they are based on what people tell him. I think his big board is much more of a popularity contest than it is a player evaluation spreadsheet.
Which is fine. Cody Latimer might be a third round player, but based on his ranking with Kiper, he won't last that long. Too much buzz.
