I know the draft is in April, but I need a fix. Are there any sites up yet?

Plenty- ESPN.com has their draft site up (gotta sign up for the prime stuff).

A site I like is http://www.gbnreport.com. They have rankings, news every day, plus lists ranking the top players at each position, and declared underclassmen. Plus links to other draft sites. And it's all free.

I'm noticing a lot of draft sites are going to pay services, which kills me, the draftnik that I am.

Thanks for a great season, Pick of the Week fans...see you next year at Planet Magic in Denmark, WI!

I should probably look into the sites mentioned as this thread grows...especially if I'll be working the draft again for my station this spring.

Hopefully there won't be any more awkward moments like when I was going one direction, and Packer PR was bringing Ahmad Caroll the other way, we crossed paths, and I realized I'm an inch taller than the guy.

Mmmm...free buffet from the Packers...

    4. CHI - Ronnie Brown, RB, Auburn

Why the hell would Chicago need another running back? And if it's just a potential replacement for Anthony Thomas, why draft one this high?

Because they realize they have Thomas Jones too?

Getting up for the draft before the end of the season seems rather silly. Until people re-sign it's not like you can really predict what a team's most pressing need is.

Sounds like a good top 5, throw in Braylon Edwards and Mike Williams and you have a pretty loaded offensive first round this year.

Does anybody besides me think that the Colts should let Edge go and use money on defensive players while trying to get a runningback in the draft since there does seem to be a good bit of offense out ther to be had? I mean I know they will have a late pick in the first round. But if rumors of Miami trying to trade for Travis Henry are true then the 3 RBs could move down another spot, maybe the Colts could trade up to get Cadillac somewhere in the 6 - 10 range?

I think Mel's got Edwards at #7 or #8, and I know he's got Williams at #13.

I wonder if Miami wouldn't take Rodgers at #2 and try and pick up a halfback in the later rounds. They REALLY need a QB, unless they're sticking with Feeley, and guys like Julius Jones and Curtis Martin weren't first-rounders.

Kiper's top 25 prospects are up at this link... unfortunately pretty much everything else on the page is Insider content:

http://espn.go.com/melkiper/

The biggest surprise is him having Dan Cody as the #2 overall prospect... I've seen him as mid to late 1st roundish in the other rankings I've looked at, but Kiper has a sterling reputation in terms of being a draftnik, so I'm taking notice.

I think it would depend on how Rodgers' and Smith's workouts play out (and if they're that good, it's not like San Fran has made a decision yet), and what Buffalo wants for Travis Henry.

Personally, assuming that the Henry trade doesn't happen I'd prefer to see Miami trade down a few spots to take Carnell Williams and recoup a couple of draft picks they lost in last year's lunacy in the process, since I'm not 100% sold on Benson.

Well, given some of the speculation made here, unless Alex Smith or Aaron Rodgers are available, Cleveland damn well better trade down and get some picks, then draft for the O-Line. The last thing they need is a RB or WR.

I think Cedric Houston from Tennessee will be a latter rounds steal for some team ... He's a solid, dependable back.

Ummm, no. He, like Parcells the year before, had his mind on another job when he should have been coaching in the Super Bowl (per Mark Chmura, among others). If you're that dis-interested in what you're doing, I don't want you around.
