Well that'd be great except most of us don't have time to take a little vacation up to Indianapolis to attend the combine or study game film on the prospects. We gotta get our info from somewhere, just not TSN.

Yeah what the heck are you talking about? Use your own info? You got some secret source or something? I bet you get your own info the same way the rest of us do: Magazines, TV, Radio, Newspapers, and Websites....thats how everybody that plays fantasy football gets their info.

I dont know what you guys are talkin about: I tape every college game, divisions 1-38, every year and study them until my pocket protector falls off.

Someone def screwed up - they list Jake Long under 2nd round picks, but then in comments under his name state that he is a first round lock!

Maybe they meant he's only a 2nd round talent but will be drafted in round 1 due to team need. But even if that's what they meant it's still ludicrous. Who knows... the whole mag is incompetent. There's another mag out though, can't remember the name of it, it's not a big publisher like ESPN or TSN or Pro Football Weekly, It was some no-namer magazine that had the word SCOUT on the front though. I glanced through it, it seemed like a much better read than TSN's garbage.

Yeh, def something wrong seeing as most experts have him as a top 10 pick, if not top 5 - TSN def going downhill. Of course I am a little biased as evidenced by my avatar & sig, lol!!!
I saw another mag in the store, like you also a no-name one, and their rankings seemed decent but the thing I didn't like was they only had a one-line comment on each player - nice to have a little more analysis, especially for players I didn't get to see play.
