    Here are some of my favorite draft guides:

    Draft Insiders - Frank Coyle puts out a pretty comprehensive draft guide. He's not always on target with his rankings or picks but he has info on most players that end up in training camp - even the un-drafted ones.

    NFL Draft Blitz - Jterrell turned me on to this last year and its worth checking out. It, like Draft Insiders, provides a comprehensive listing of players and evaluations. IIRC last year's guide was over 700 pages.

    Ourlads - Nice guide with some well written player evaluations. This guide isn't as deep as either of the previous guides but worth picking up.

    GMJR - I bought this guide last year for the first time and it impressed me with the number of players profiled. The book was several hundred pages thick and rates positions differently than others do. Worth checking out if you have $31 to spend.

    I didn’t list Kiper’s guide, the Sporting News or Pro Football Weekly. To me they generally aren’t worth the money. The Sporting News prints their guide early and while it looks pretty it doesn’t have much substance. Since Joel passed PFW has gone down in quality every year and Mel just doesn’t do much for me.

    Does anyone else have a favorite draft guide not listed?

    I think your list is pretty good. I do buy the Kiper blue book every year. Yes, by the time I get it, I already have made my own evaluations on the guys. But I love the consistency of the books. I have every blue book for the last 12 or so years. It is great going back and looking at the reviews on guys that are all pros that weren't top prospects.

    I used to take Ourlads every year for a few years, and I've taken Kiper a few times...

    I was a member of DraftBlitz last year... it is a good site... as is The Huddle Report...

    For freebies, NFL Draft Countdown is good... as is Great Blue North
