On the layout, the main silver bar on the top doesn't extend all the way over, it makes the whole site look off center.

What browser are you using? And is anyone having that issue?
Other than making the graphics on the tiled images flush and flow into each other a bit better, I don't have much advice. Good website though. Bookmarked.

Thanks OregonNiner87, appreciate the bookmark, I have SunDevilNiner and sfout working with me in the coming weeks on content. So hoping to have new information up.
Does anyone think the site main area with content should be smaller in width?

Internet Explorer. Now when it loads, everything is to the far left and some of it is cut off.

Let me check again when I get home. My work computer browser isn't up to date, at home I use IE and Chrome and will check both

Ok, I haven't checked with Chrome or IE, just Firefox. I was also messing around with the width and such, so that's why it looked weird I'm guessing.
Update: Now I see what you're talking about SunDevil, I don't know the exact problem.

On IE8 and on Chrome it loads just fine.

The problem appears to only happen with an out of date IE

Yeah It was all messed up on IE 8 and Chrome earlier, fixed it though, not sure on IE 7 and under though.
Update: Changed layout to look more PFT like. http://www.draftwatchers.com and when you input that address into your tablet or smartphone it will redirect you to the mobile version, http://mobile.draftwatchers.com .

I would like to thank and announce the addition of the great analysis of SunDevilNiner79 to the site staff. I hope to have more impressive knowledge with him aboard, and more in depth info.

Also made urls easier, so instead of a player profile being /2013.php?playerid=1, it's now /2013/1-PlayerName.html Makes it better for security purposes, same goes with main page articles/blog entries.

Site looks much better, and I don't mean that as an insult in anyway in how it use to look. It just looks cleaner now. Keep up the good work.

Another suggestion is linking YouTube videos to players pages if possible? For example:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZo__7PRl8A&feature=related
Thats Geno Smith vs. Marshall.

I know those guys are kind of "competitors," I think it would be a great addition to be able to be like "hmm my team might take a QB in the 2nd round, lets go look at Draft Watchers for whose going there." Then they might see Tyler Wilson is ranked down there but all theyve seen of him is a few highlight throws, if you have a link (if available) of a youtube clip it would be money.

Also some guys post entire games, like Michigan Offense vs. Alabama D, so you could link that to each Michigan/Alabama guy if applicable.

Another idea is college stats, maybe when the season ends (because I know it must be a hell of a lot of work)? For defensive stats I've found cfbstats.com to be excellent. Offensive stats are obviosuly esay to come by at any site.

On position rankings, the positions don't stand out. For example if I look at offense rankings, "Running Back" or "Tight Ends" is difficult to spot because your eyes jump to Player Name, which is in red.

Not trying to be critical, just trying to give you ideas.

Also IMO its always great to identify award-winning players/All-Americans and what not. This would came later on but like it would be cool that when you click on a player's profile there is some kind of special note that they were 1st team SEC and Rimington (Center) Award finalist.

I totally agree with everything. I can basically make a background color for the Positions, like a Maroon, with White Color.

We can post a youtube vid on each profile. And awards will be a easy thing to do, get a list, and just plug them in.

And Stats wouldn't be too hard, will be some work, would give me something to do. I love your ideas, and then help will be tremendous.
