    Draft Guide Books

    Hey all,

    Haven't been on this site for quite some time (4/27/2008 actually haha) but anyway I had a question that I figured you could help out with perhaps...is there any good draft guide books that are sold online that still come in an actual book format??? So many sites are just doing PDF files now, and while that is great to save money, I would prefer to have an actual book in my hands as well. Anyone know of any??? THANKS!!!

    Btw, no longer a fan of Ben. He's a complete idiot, and a very rude to public fans here in PA now that i've spoken to him once. Just an old username hahaha.

    I'll come out a give a plug for my buddy Nolan Nawrocki's stuff through Pro Football Weekly. Either the magazine or the book. Nolan knows his stuff and does a great job.

    The used to be good. I had the 2004 & 2005 magazines and they were great. Very informative with good structure/design. I would suggest not picking one up, you seriously won't know what kind of person has to be writing it....

    I agree that PFW is the most in-depth. The Sporting News isn't good, but it gets a bad rep for doing unpopular analysis. They had Kevin Kolb as a first-round talent and Brady Quinn as a third-rounder, which made them a laughingstock, then it turned out they were just smarter than the other analysts.

PFW's the cream of the crop for draft magazines and I have experience with almost all of them over the years. The last four years or so TheSportingNews has been by far the worst and ESPN (with Kiper/McShay) is the only other I'd put near PFW.
