    what websites do you guys use for prospects and waht rounds they are projected to make your mock drafts?


    I used to have alist of the good ones, which are rare, I think I only found like 3 or 4 good ones, the rest of the 75 so I looked up sucked, so I'm curious which ones you guys use or think are good ones.

    I weeded out a lot of bad ones the past few years, the way I'd to that was pretty simple, some sites had McFadden ranked like 45th overall, wihch tells me theye clueless and cna't be trusted, etc., not all were that easy to weed out, but a lot were actually pretty bad and had noticeable faults, so much so that I would never use them.

    I go to NFLDraftCountdown.com, find a player, who fits a position of need IMO, then go to cfbstats.com, and look how they're doing this year

    there are players that draft sites don't list, so while I'm at cfbstats.com, I browse around and usually find some good players

    How did any of you guys come up with a mock, meaning which site gave you the rankings on who was projected to go in what rounds?

    There are two sites I go to for draft databases....yes one of them belongs to the enemy, but they have a ton of mocks to look at.

    http://waltersfootball.com

    http://hailredskins.com

    Now, in my yahoo search engine, I type something from the list below, and then search as many of the results as possible till I find what I am looking for.

    1. 2009 NFL Draft Sleepers
    2. 2009 NFL Draft Small School
    3. 2009 NFL Draft Small School Prospects
    4. position + player name + school
    5. 2009 NFL Draft + position

    some individual sites
    http://waltersfootball.com

    http://draftcountdown.com

    http://fantasyfootballtoolbox.com

    http://cdsdraft.com

    http://nfldraftdog.com


    Recently I have found some nice sites for stats

    Just checked out cdsdraft, throw that one away, I looked at their MOCK and they had James Lauranaitus going 45th overall! LOL

    Once I see something that's so far off and ridiculous, it shows me they have nO CLUE what they're doing and I can't ever trust the site with any other information after seeing something like this.

    I mean, to have a top 10 prospect on almost everyon'es board going in the middle of round 2 is a complete joke, and thus I would remove this website from your favorites list and never refer to this site for any good info EVER AGAIN!

    you put too much stock in mocks....i dont go to either site you are throwing away for their mocks. i go to get player analysis and stats. i could absolutely care less about their mocks.

    btw, i didn't look at the mock on that site that had us picking a Center. I don't allow those mock makers to influence me at all. I go by the players Dallas currently has (how they play, injuries, retirement, FA, etc.)....I also go by the guys I focus on in the college game. One thing I do like to do, especially early on in my mocks is include several prospects from the lesser universities. I want to give everyone something to think about and discuss.

    It gets boring if all you do is say take so and so from Texas, USC, Ohio St., and LSU.....give me some seasoning. Sprinkle in some players from the MAC, WAC, Con-USA, etc. and even some D-2 kids...

    Actually, CDS is a good website for finding about fringe prospects... they do in-depth interviews with players who, if they're drafted at all, won't be before the 6th or 7th rounds...

    I don't know how active it is, haven't been there in a while, but they also have a message board where some of the fringe prospects agree to answer fans' questions during the year... it can be pretty interesting, too...

    it hasnt been updated in several months Bear.....but I like to go there between the SB and the draft, cause that is when they give some great info.

    right now, a lot of quality sites are lagging behind their updates....probably waiting until after the college regular season ends to catchup.
