The reason for my extended time away from the site…
The last three weeks (and two days) have been a little busy. Wonderful in a way that defies description, but busy. Still, I’ve found a way to sneak in some draft-related work during the brief moments of peace and quiet. One-handed typing has me a little behind where I’d like to be and there’s no guarantee I’ll get everything I wanted to get done — can you believe I was ready to push the big board to a cool thousand this year? — complete before Monday night, but I’m trying my best. The next 72 hours or so are going to be fun. If I do finish, I’m confident that the rankings you’ll see will be as good as anything else you’ll find on the internet. Price is right, too.
There’s something about this particular draft class that makes sense to me, and I think the work you’ll soon see will reflect that fact. I have more than enough information to slap together the kind of in-depth rankings I’d like to think I’m known for (inasmuch as a guy like me is known for anything), but I want this year’s draft day coverage to be as thorough as humanly possible. No corners are being cut. I’d like to keep it that way, but it’ll be up to how quickly I can type and how long I can keep my eyes open. Fingers crossed.
Thanks to everybody who has checked in these last few weeks. I appreciate the patience and the loyalty. I apologize for not getting back to as many emails and comments as I would have liked to over the last few months. If I can sneak some quick replies in on Monday afternoon once everything else is complete, I will. In the meantime, go out and enjoy the weekend, watch some college ball, read all the expert coverage already out there (I’ve been hard on BA in recent years, but the little I’ve seen of their 2017 draft coverage so far this year has been outstanding)…but don’t forget to come back on Monday (hopefully) to see what I’ve got.
