Our new personal favorite is Draft Breakdown, which has in-depth analysis along with forums where fans and the scouts that run the site can interact to get some good info and discussion.
Last year, NFL House was solid in the lead-up to the draft. We're hoping for a repeat performance this year.
Footballs Future always has some good info, but they are also prone to rumor-spreading so you have to take everything there with a grain of salt.
Daniel Jeremiah, a former Ravens and Browns scout who got axed when Eric Mangini's staff came in, runs Move the Sticks which has provided some solid scouting info from the Senior Bowl this past week.
Finally, the folks over at Mocking the Draft always are worth the read.
As a precursor to all the draft stuff, we did a little checking to see how teams are looking heading into the draft. The following numbers are not final, as the compensatory selections have not been decided yet. However, as things stand right now, here is the outlook on how many draft picks each team has:
- Thanks to Eric Mangini's wheeling and dealing last year, Cleveland leads the pack this year with 11 picks.
- St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Kansas City, and New England all have 9 picks.
- Detroit, Buffalo, Miami, San Francisco, and Philadelphia have 8 picks.
- Seattle, Oakland, NY Giants, Houston, Cincinnati, Green Bay, Baltimore, Arizona, Minnesota, and Pittsburgh all have 7 picks.
- Denver, Tennessee, Atlanta, Dallas, San Diego, New Orleans, and Indianapolis all have 6 picks.
- Washington, Chicago, Jacksonville, and Carolina all have 5 selections.
- Finally, only the NY Jets have 4 picks in the draft, the fewest of any team.
