Mediocre with flashes of brilliance

I get Lindy's every year. The last couple of years I feel like I'm getting less for more. In their profiles I want a summary at the end, not a comparison to a player long forgotten or one in the CFL.
I think Athlon's is better. I like the big board that they slot every player by round.
On the internet, I find the Huddle Report top 200 to be best of the bunch year after year.
I used to buy a couple for second opinions, but this year I attempted to do more with less and wait until mid-March before I got into it so as not to waste time.
I still like Lindy's and I think, particularly this year, that the Comps might prove more accurate than a lot of people like to believe, even if some
of the guys that get talked up get compared to XFL or whatever players. I hope to learn, eventually, to view our draftees with realistic expectations and if somebody
exceeds the comps then all the better.
Sometimes it's better to draft a guy that can give you rotational snaps for a while or play on STs than get all excited prematurely.
In general, I don't like premature excitement, if you know what I'm sayin'.
