This article was well researched, insightful, and expertly written. From an NFL perspective, I can't say enough good things about the quality of the article. ;-D ;-D ;-D

As it relates to the fantasy perspective, I just question the timing. Why bother now? What good is the fantasy analysis four days before the Draft? When except for a few elite prospects who should prosper no matter where they fall, the team and situation of many of these players may change their fantasy prospects enormously! Why bother guessing, when four days from now we'll know exactly where these players will be playing? The "CHANCES FOR IMPACT" writeup on just about every one of these players may be completely irrelevant in four days.

If this article comes out next week, with the CHANCES FOR IMPACT correctly reflecting the team the player was drafted to, then this is the best article published at the Cafe this year. ;-D

We wanted to preview the prospects before the draft, so fantasy players that don't really follow draft hype will know who to watch for this weekend. Rest assured that there will be a draft review as well, outlining which prospects fell into the right situation.

Why choose one or the other when you can have both? :-D

And thanks for the praise for the article; I know StatsGuru worked long and hard to make it exceptional.

Keep the feedback coming. It's really the best way to help us improve.
