The results are in, and Greg Cote's 26th annual Official Miami Herald Mock Draft has defeated the final mock drafts of ESPN experts.

Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay - easily, as a matter of fact. Cote had eight first-round bull's-eyes - exact player to exact team - while Kiper and McShay both had only four:

Kiper bull's-eyes: Myles Garrett to Browns, Leonard Fournette to Jaguars, Christian McCaffrey to Panthers and Jarrad Davis to Lions.

McShay bull's-eyes: Garrett, Fournette, McCaffrey and Corey Davis to Titans.

Cote bull's-eyes: Garrett, Fournette, McCaffrey, Jamal Adams to Jets, Charles Harris to Dolphins, Garett Bolles to Broncos, Taco Charlton to Cowboys and T.J. Watt to Steelers.

"It just shows you the importance of intense and diligent research," said Cote, celebrating with a bottle of Krug Grand Cuvee. "I'll look forward to the reward of a fat bonus check, right boss?"
