    Just wondering what draft sites people consider the best or most reliable and why? I tend to use Draft Scout more than any other but also use Walter Football, although i don't have as high an opinion of them they are way out front of the process very early on, so even if they are well off the mark they have more extensive coverage early and it gives us more to look at. ESPN is a pay site and even though i think McShay is pretty good I generally don't pay any attention to ESPN. I should probably spend more time at NFL.Com's site which should start ramping up soon, if it hasn't already.

    If you are on twitter, following Daniel Jeremiah is a must.

    Split Ends ~ for those who don't know but are interested in knowing ~ are, unlike their fellow "Wide Receivers", the SlotBack and the FlankerBack, technically Linemen, like those 300 Pound Grizzlies that man the Trenches!!

    Being Linemen, they are indeed required to line up on the Line of Scrimmage before the Snap, unlike the others.

    Because this places them nose to nose with the opposing CornerBack ~ whereas the SlotBacks and Flankers are allowed to align a couple steps back, thus affording them more room to maneuver ~ they need to be much bigger.

    *Please do note, though: Schematically, the Split End is whoever lines up as the Split End...But for the purposes of these Scouting Reports, I am applying this NomenClature to those who are Split Ends by trade, so to speak: Those whose Skills Sets apply best to that particular Job Description. What their Coaches might do with them, once they're drafted, is another matter all together. Ditto, the Flankers and SlotBacks. In any case, many play multiple Roles.


    I didn't know OTG had a site.

    Release ~ Poor. Not physical enough.

    Routing ~ Raw.

    Separation ~ Mediocre. Lacks exceptional Fluidity & Ricochet.

    Catching ~ Outstanding. Great Hands & HighPointing.

    Navigation ~ Decent.

    Blocking ~ Fair to Middling.

    "Blank" might be the best Split End in this entire Class, in The Red Zone.

    The problem, of course, is getting there.

    "Blank" doesn't strike me as a guy who's going to be able to give you much help Moving The Chains.


    Which 2012 prospect was he talking about?

    And Tony Pauline. he's often good with getting info from scouts and where players are actually likely to go.

    Zobel is extremely hated within the Twitter scout world. He has been caught reporting rumors that were completely made up and his scouting ability has been questioned by many. He's earned the nickname "Incarcerated Zob," if that gives you any idea what people think of him.

    That may be, I have no idea, but his mocks are very good IMO. Although he insists on giving us a WR over a TE this year.

    I haven't seen many negatives about him recently but I may not follow the right people.

    Weird how an amateur could size him up but the pats Braintrust couldnt. Haven't given up hope but he should have been a 5th rounder.

    Count me in as someone that wants a TE over a WR, but if Mike Evans fell to us I'd be as happy as a pig on *****!!!

    Imagine Brady with a 6'5 receiver....

    I like Draftcountdown.com, nepatriotsdraft.com and draftbreakdown.com, drafttv.com is a new one I am giving a shot.

    draftbreakdown has lots of good video. nepatriotsdraft is geared towards the patriots and draftcountdown has a good weekly podcast and a good forum with lots of knowledgeable draftniks.

    I'm a big football's future fan. The site isn't anything at all, but the forums are very active and have very knowledgeable posters. Check it out.

    Although it tells you something about the site that the owner doesn't allow links to other messageboards at all.

    Never heard of DraftBreakdown, but I'll give it a look during Senior Bowl week.
    As others have noted, Pro Football Weekly will be missed, so anything that might help
    fill the void will be welcome.
