Best Draft Info?

Where do you guys think the best draft info can be found? I've always liked getting two or three draft magazines but the bad thing about them is that the 40 times and other stats aren't up to date. The Sporting News always puts out a good draft annual and Pro Football Weekly is pretty good as well.

As far as online draft information goes my favorite site would have to be nfldraftcountdown.com. They have alot of info on players and their mocks are always fairly accurate. I think they have the best player rankings because they are pretty close to mine. My problem with most draft sites is that they used recycled info so they all look the same. Alot of them just fall in line with what Mayock or Kiper say and they don't have their own opinions on prospects. I like to see people come at the draft with their own angles.

Speaking of Mayock and Kiper, which talking head do you prefer? I've always been a huge Mel Kiper Jr. fan and for years he was the only draft guru on TV. Then a few years ago Mike Mayock burst on the scene and now Mel has a challenger for the title of King of the Draft. What I like about Mayock is that he's not afraid to have player rankings that go against the consensus. He doesn't care how big of a name a player has, he grades by what he sees on film. He even has Mendenhall as the #1 RB ahead of Run DMC. The thing I hate about him is how he get's man crushes on players based on what they did at the senior bowl. I get tired of him talking about the senior bowl all the time. Todd McShay isn't as well known as Kiper or Mayock but he might be the best in the business as far as prospect grading.
