NFL Draft quickly approaching

With the NFL Draft just a few days away, it's hard to find a football site that focuses on anything but the draft. But check out the links below for some draft and non-draft news around the league. I will be on an airplane during the draft as I head off to a library conference in Washington, D.C., and at first I thought all hope was lost for watching rounds one and two. Until I remembered that I'll be flying the best airline ever - Frontier - and they have Direct TV access to ESPN. I'm so money.

So onto football updates:

  • If you're in the market for draft analysis, you're obviously in the right place. Try Football Jabber's Top 10 CB Prospects for a look at this year's cornerback class.
  • The Hazean has put together a mock draft with a bunch of football fans and bloggers drafting for their favorite teams; not surprisingly, I drafted for the Broncos. The Hazean is posting the draft a little at a time - check out picks 1-5 of the mock draft here and picks 6-10 here.
  • Check out FF Toolbox.com's Top Prospects for 2008 NFL Draft. Few fantasy sites do as thorough of a job with the NFL Draft as FF Toolbox does.
  • Some non-draft info is actually out there! FF Xtreme has an early look at the 2008 IDP rankings in their Got IDP Rankings? article, with the top 20 guys at DL, DB and LB.
  • Stay updated on all fantasy football news with The Huddle's Priority News section - see how Willie Parker is faring in the offseason and why the Colts might be looking to draft an RB a little higher than original planned.
  • I know how the Redskins would love to get their hands on Chad Johnson - just doesn't look like it's going to happen...
I'll try to get a post up later this week with any last minute draft links you might want to get your hands on. I may be a little MIA after that though until early May - I will be going to back-to-back library conferences (presenting on fantasy football at one of them!) and may have limited time for blogging. But I'll do what I can - there will be a lot to report on after the draft is over!
