Bob McGinn does this really cool draft write up every year where he interview a bunch of scouts about some of the top prospects.

Hudson is an interesting LT prospect in round 2-3, anyone seen him play?

James Hudson, Cincinnati (6-foot-4½, 302 pounds): Redshirted as a defensive lineman at Michigan in 2017 before moving to tackle in ’18 and playing in three games. Transferred in ’19, but Michigan contested his release. Didn’t make his debut with the Bearcats until the Birmingham Bowl in late 2019. Started at left tackle in ’20. “He’s raw, but he’s probably the best natural athlete (among the offensive linemen in the draft),” one scout said. “He’s quick. He’s aggressive. He plays like a (defensive) lineman. He tries to strike guys, which is to his detriment at this point. He’s got to learn some patience and technique. He’s got a lot to work with.”

Was removed from consideration by one team because of off-field factors. “He’s got some issues with consistency and maturity,” said another scout. “He may not be a first- or second-round pick on every board, but I would bet money that he is on 10 of them. If one team brings him in and lets him talk to their doctors and they say he’s fine, they’ll take him in the second. You only have to get picked by one.”

He's a mid-rounder who I've been thinking about if we go DB or IOL in the 2nd. Seems like a boom or bust guy. Definitely intriguing potential but also definitely not plug and play (which is honestly a pipedream for a mid-round LT anyway).

I have to say, I really enjoy the Athletic, especially their draft coverage. I think Brugler is really good, and then you add in McGinn etc. Person is also really good, feels like he found his style. I’ll try to post the QB comments later

Brugler is the best overall draft source. Doesnt matter mocks, ranks, rumors etc. Hes got legit history too, I mean hes been right loads of time and built up credit imo.

McGinn posts real scouts takes for many players, great stuff in all.

DJ at NFL.com is great for ranking, its shows his distain for mocks(honestly I dont care for mocks either).

Jeff legwold is another great draft read, just he releases his top 100 soooo late (like one week before the draft). Still its different and hes got great information on that list that I respect.

Tony Pauline is good for rumors and draft news.

Greg cosell and Jay Glazer are in my circle of trust for NFL news in general and if they report some draft news I listen as well. 

I may be missing some other lesser known draft guru, but these are my main go-tos for draft fixed.
