About.com has a poll up to determine the "Best NFL Draft Site"

If everyone could take a minute and vote for Draft Countdown I'd really appreciate it!

Scott is killing it. He has over 52% of the votes. Rightfully so.

He's really stepped it up and done a tremendous job of improving the sight this year. There's room for improvement, and I expect next year to be even better, but I am pleased with the progress Scott has made with the site this year.

I've already got one big change in mind for next year that is going to lead to a lot more content!

We're looking forward to it :)

Is it possible to get video content on the site? Or is that illegal? Youtube clips are becoming more and more prevalent, I was wondering if you're legally allowed to have such clips on your site, or does the NCAA prohibit you from doing this?

DC is running away with it. One of my favorite things about this site is everyone knows what they are talking about, Also there is no Cam Newton love here. I am sick of it already.

I agree. I think I voted, but not sure. DC is way in the lead though so not too worried about it.

I didn't even know CBS had a draft section.
ESPN's sucks and Sports News probably does too.
The ten votes fro ESPN were prob

I'd take it as a compliment.... VV probably has over 90% of his posts in the Hot Chick thread, so he knows a great "cheap trick" when he sees one.

By March 8th, this will be embarrassing.

Keep it up boys!

CBS is a terrible draft site. So is ESPN. This is a run-away. There are much better competition to this site than CBS and ESPN lol.

But DC bent over the other sites lol.

77% and we are treating this poll like Boise State in a conference game.

By missing a last second field goal that could have sent you to the National Title game?

SWDC returned the opening kickoff for a TD and then added a pick 6 on the next possession.

What I don't understand is why is Scott so against marketing his face?

If he was more willing to do youtube blogs, and go on TV and do commentary his website's popularity would increase exponentially. It's good for business. You need a face to market.

He should seriously consider this. Hiding isn't going to help his business.
