With the 48th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens selected Florida State defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan. ESPN analysts Mel Kiper and Todd McShay were not big fans of the selection.
According to Kiper and McShay, Jernigan’s stamina is a concern, along with his inability to get into the backfield. McShay was much more vocal about his disapproval of the pick than Kiper was on ESPN’s broadcast Friday evening.
Saturday, Baltimore coach John Harbaugh was interviewed on the NFL Network. During the interview, he was asked about Jernigan, and he responded, partly, by taking a shot at ESPN’s analysis on the player.
John Harbaugh just BURNED either Kiper or McShay, saying “they must not watch any tape” for disliking Timmy Jernigan.

John Harbaugh just burned Kiper at ESPN, on NFLN. “Guy on the other network over there didn’t like him. He must not watch any tape.”

Kiper and McShay are no strangers to criticism, so they’re almost assuredly not bothered by Harbaugh’s comments, though they likely disagree with them.
