At this point in the draft process as it’s finally April you are probably growing tired of hearing the same old things from a lot of the same people and trying to translate that into fantasy knowledge. What if I told you I could save you the trouble and I was able to get input from respected draft analysts and picked their brains with some fantasy relevant questions? Well, I did just that with an NFL Draft Analyst Industry Poll!


I will have input from Mark Jarvis of What’s On NFL Draft, Nick Farabaugh of DFF and a writer for Devy Watch, Kyle Crabbs and Jon Ledyard of the new Draft Network, and last but not least Connor Rogers from Bleacher Report and Co-Host of the Stick to Football podcast. If you aren’t following these five men and their work, you are truly missing out on amazing content. They were very generous with their time and answered all the questions I asked of them.
