Re: Looking at Draft Publications
Sporting News is a great Baseball mag. They cover NASCAR better than just about everyone else, too...not so great on the NFL.
SI...hmmm...Peter King...great example. Charlie Frye threw a 60 yard bomb flat footed at a workout in Akron. King wasn't there, and reported that Frye has no arm-strength at all. Meanwhile, everyone else was reporting that the arm-strength thing was a myth. How can you expect yourself to be taken seriously as a legitimate information source if you base your analysis on guessing?
The rest are all pretty good, and I think you should add Football Digest to the list.
