was just wondering if the draft reviews will ever be done and if there will even be a relaunch before the college season starts... pretty sick of seeing pryor

I was thinking the same thing. A lot of other draft sites have already started with their mock drafts and rankings. Idk whats going on...

Nothing personal against Scott, but this site thrives because of the message board, and it has for years.

That's not true. Though we sure like to think it does! :)

Could be. I obviously don't have the numbers, but that's certainly the sentiment from a lot of people. I read Scott's final mock and his Bears review, but other than that I stopped caring about the content a long time ago. It's just too inconsistent, and as others have mentioned, listening to podcasts is really only worth the time if they are a) really entertaining b) from highly-respected individuals.

I appreciate the fact Scott goes through position by position to highlight draftable prospects prior to the season. It helps me create an inventory of players to watch during the CFB season. The senior bowl and combine coverage are also very good. The message boards do play a huge role in site traffic. I'm just glad that I will have an updated list of prospects to check out in the next few days.

I'm with you brother. I only come back for the Funny Pictures and Hot Chick thread, everything else around here is garbage. Especially BF_51's posts, that guy doesn't know what he's talking about.

I've heard that there should be some good new stuff on relaunch this year. I'm just waiting for the shower of Luck love, and the the inevitable backlash where he suddenly has a million over-analyzed flaws.

People still visit the actual site? My bookmark takes me straight to the forum. Good to know I haven't missed anything, though.

Scott and Shane actually do a really good job with the Podcasts.

I second that. You can learn a lot if you listen to them.

Is there a transcript anywhere? Listening is fine in its place, but sometiumes you need black on white.

Just wanted to give everyone an update.

I've been working feverishly on prepping everything for the re-launch, which will take place in the afternoon on Wednesday, August 31. I just have about half of the mock draft to write analysis for and then a bunch of odds and ends. Then I'll be heading out of town on a scouting trip from Thursday through Sunday but will knock out the final batch of reviews next week.

Appreciate the interest!

Shane and I definitely listened to the comments and suggestions we received this summer and plan to implement many of them into the show. A big one is going to be having more colleagues and fellow draft analysts on.

So Scott, you're not gonna finish the draft reviews?

As I mentioned in the post above, I'm going to knock out the last handful of reviews next week.
