In the summer of 2010, Mel Kiper looked at every NFL team -- their current roster holes, who they might pick if the 2011 draft was happening now, and an overall audit of their system. This page serves as a collection of each Kiper report.
Mel Kiper breaks down the offseasons and needs of each AFC North team. Among other observations: the Ravens may be elite contenders, but they could use some help in the secondary now; the Steelers need athletes all over the field.
Maturity issues came into play with the top impact players from the NFL draft, Rounds 4-7. In one instance, immaturity was a question, and in another, a player was already 25. But both Aaron Hernandez and Dennis Pitta could be early factors.
Pete Carroll's arrival in the Northwest couldn't have been more controversial. And although the coach has an aggressive style, patience paid off when the Seahawks' war room convened. Mel Kiper was impressed enough to give the Hawks top marks.
