NFL draft season is long and arduous. Obsessive fans track mock draft after mock draft starting not in January after the season, but months before that. Hell, some fans and writers are already tracking the 2020 draft class.
But as a fan or curator of content, you have to be careful who you listen to. Amateur scouting is rampant and often inaccurate. But it’s nearly impossible to scout an entire draft class with the limited resources available to the public. At some point, you have to put your trust into “draft gurus,” at least to some degree.
So today’s Question of the Day is:
Which NFL Draft analysts to you trust the most?
My answer: Well, obviously I trust our double-headed approach to the draft with Alex Reno and Kent Lee Platte.
But if we’re talking national guys, I really like all the folks over at The Draft Network. Their content is not only solidly researched, but it’s also presented in a very consumable manner. I also enjoy Matt Miller of Bleacher Report and Dane Brugler of The Athletic.
There are a ton more, but in an effort to leave some to discussion, I’ll leave it there.
