  • Draft Magazines

    Ok bros, what's everyone's favourite draft magazine? For the past decade I've been buying PFW's, but they've closed up shop.

    None. I think they are all terrible. They release them too soon, and by the time the draft comes, the prospects have been completely reshuffled and their values completely changed.

      ditto. Not one worth even contemplating at this point. I used to get PFW's every year just to have it for reference on how MUCH things change from March til draft day, but they are no more....

        Well damn guys! You're right of course, I don't understand why they publish before the combine results are in. Guess I'll just pick the cheapest one

          Could be something MHR ends up doing in the near future. I haven't talked to Kyle, but if I am going to spend time on the writing gig, I'd like to at least have a downloadable PDF of players I've watched and did game review on throughout the year and have it available for Broncos fans to look at. Obviously it wouldn't be exhaustive, but a good 100 prospects or so to look forward to. Maybe.

          Good idea?

            Of course. It's your hobby and you enjoy it. I'd do things like that just for fun for sure if time permits.

            All you're talking about is 3-4 choice games per prospect pitting them against the best competition, they are on the field only half the game, and you just look for splash plays. Whichever is the latest game of the season, check for fundamentals. It's usually a couple hours per prospect.

              I think the internet coverage is the way to go. Technology once again outpaces the printed page. This stuff keeps moving from day to day and only the sites that keep updating and getting new reports are worth a damn.

                so to take this question to the next level. What are the best websites you all use?

                Free vs. fee based?

                  Yep. I'm in the process of starting up a magazine/online journal with a buddy of mine who started a small business that focused on helping out veterans and then generated some products, etc. -- We decided we are going to do an online magazine, plus print based one for subscribers. We are getting over 300,000 hits a month on our website and they love our writing content -- so we are seeing if we can get a subscription based model going to gain some more revenue.

                  I think it will be a great get -- and proceeds will be donated to various charities involved with the site. It will cover politics, arts and entertainment, current events, men's health and various other things. Basically what we are deeming the "Premier Magazine for Men" -- I'll let you all know when it officially launches. Not asking for $, but you will be able to view our efforts trial free for the first month or so.

                      For what? Draft prospect rankings? None. The only ones I really know about are nfldraftscout and nfl.com. And both are godawful terrible. The draftscout one is ok when the draft is like a week away, but so is Kiper and Mayock as well.

                      The way to go is really just to make a spreadsheet with collegiate production (I use cfbstats.com and just go through each team and ping all the Seniors) update it as the NFLPA, Shrine, Senior Bowl, Combine, and Pro Days occur. Plus, college awards are useful for identifying top prospects, 1st Team SEC, etc... I have all that data and then the players that pass the eyeball test get the film work. In the end, its a lot more accurate than the draft sites largely because they are doing the same thing, but for whatever reason, much slower.

                        Interesting, I'll check it out when you launch it.

                          Req.... after your OM draft you should give us a list of your top 100... maybe who would like to see in what rounds... notes about guys... **** I would print it off and enjoy my favorite day (week/weekend now :/) of the year even more.

                          Speaking of draft.... anyone pumped for that movie?? comes out April 11.

                          Also Speaking of draft... we should get some draft threads in the main forum.....

                          Speaking of getting draft threads in the main forum.... what do you guys think of Cyrus Kouandjiou, OT, Alabama in the second round He couple RT, or LG.... that's one big mean nasty O-line with him and Franklin both out there. Personally I don't think O-line is near the issue that everyone else does but this would be a value pick.

                            I mean like cbssports.com
                            walterfootball

                            I know you like to be your own scout, but to cross reference, and see 40 times and pro days and all that good stuff on one page is also a very valuable tool.
