Is It This Easy?

AS REQUESTED, HERE IS A LINK TO THE ARTICLE.

As everyone knows, this is Mel Kiper's weekend in the sun. While you either love him or hate him, The Realests wondered where exactly this guy came from. It turns out the answer is surprisingly simple and straight forward.

From the Baltimore Sun:

The draft (or more appropriately, college scouting) has been Kiper's passion for more than 25 years, dating to when he was just an eager, anonymous Baltimore teenager who hung around Colts practices, trying to soak up whatever knowledge he could. There was no television coverage of the draft then and certainly no jokes about Kiper's now-famous hair. (ESPN will broadcast its 26th draft this year, and the NFL Network will also broadcast the event for the first time.)

He was simply a kid who loved sports so much, he spent a good portion of his days and nights taking meticulous notes about players he'd never met, recording his observations in a stack of dog-eared notebooks. He published his first draft guide in 1979 when he was just a freshman at Essex Community College, sent it to NFL general managers looking for feedback, and based on its moderate success (he sold more than 100), encouragement from his father and Baltimore Colts general manager Ernie Accorsi, he dropped out and never looked back.
