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!

Back on the fantasy wagon

With my library conferences behind me (for a few weeks at least), I can now concentrate on fantasy football again. If you happen to be a librarian and are interested in how my co-presenter and I tied together fantasy football and information literacy, check out my co-presenter’s blog . Though I imagine most of you would much rather catch up on the following football news and thoughts for the week: I remain a bit dazed and confused by my certainty last summer that Cedric Benson was going to rock my RB2 world in 2007. Didn’t happen and now he’s moved onto ankle surgery, alleged intoxication and resisting arrest on boats. Awesome. You can practically taste Matt Forte’s value skyrocketing here. In fact, wondering about rookie RBs in general? Well then check out FF Xtreme’s The Day After: Ranking the Rookie Running Backs . I love reading articles or stats that challenge my preconceived notions – The Fifth Down’s Chad the Completion Percentage Machine does just that. No offense to thos

Streaming Defenses - Week 16

Don't know about you all, but in our house this week is just chock full of events, visiting with family, and getting organized for our upcoming time off over the holidays. Lots of scrambling going on around here and attempts to install some sense of gratitude in my boys. What am I grateful for this season? Many things but let's start with Bob. Bob has been my fantasy football rock, coming back week after week to post. Hats off to you, Bob, and thank you for your diligent work and research. So here he is with this year's final streaming defense post.  Well it’s the last week of the Fantasy Football Playoffs in most leagues, and my last post of the season. I hope you all found these posts useful. And if I failed you, you have to murder a lot more experts before you get to me. I myself have had a terrible playoff season. I’m out of all but one of my leagues due to the weird games the last two weeks. Between weather that didn’t materialize to normally consistent players co

A hiatus

Update:  It is with a very heavy heart that I tell you all that yesterday, August 30th, I delivered our stillborn daughter, Caroline Mary. This has been an almost surreal and definitely heartbreaking experience and I appreciate the support in each and every one of your notes. Caroline will be honored and loved always. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your thoughts and prayers - they mean the world to our family. I have been a very poor blogger this month and feel I owe you all an explanation, particularly as this is crunch time for draft prep. I hope this is not too personal of a look into my life since I know most of you are just here for the football. I am nearly 18 weeks pregnant and we have learned that our baby (a little girl!) has triploidy, a chromosomal abnormality that means she has three copies of every chromosome instead of the normal two. The doctors have explained that it's a completely random occurrence and fairly rare that she has made it this far along, but tha
