You may not have wanted to admit it to yourself, but you knew it was coming. Lucky for you, it no longer has to mean the loneliest five months of your year!
One website, DraftDude.com, has just launched a service that allows people who know absolutely nothing about football to make professional-level drafting decisions.
This first-of-its-kind website helps users to make expert-level drafting, playing, and trading decisions in a matter of minutes. Needless to say, its an easy way to shock your husband and his friends by having the best picks at his next draft party!
You can check it out for yourself, at www.draftdude.com. They even have a five minute instructional video to make it super easy to follow.
Also, in order to begin impressing your hubby “right off the bat,” the experts at DraftDude have provided the following free tips (see below) exclusively for mommy bloggers.
DraftDude.com’s top five picks for the NFL’s Most Underrated And Overrated Players
#1 Most underrated Wide Receiver: T.J. Houshmandzadeh
WHY? He caught 92 passes last year, despite being on an anemic Bengals team in a tough defensive conference–the move to Seattle will help.
#2 Most overrated Wide Receiver: Terrell Owens
WHY? The aging Owens is often among the league leaders in dropped passes,
but gets more attention for his off-field antics–both of which could
signal a dip in production. He could become disruptive if he becomes aggravated that he is not as productive as he has been in the past, further harming his production.
#3 Most underrated Tight End: Kellen Winslow
WHY? After an injury-riddled 2008 campaign, Winslow is primed for a rebound
with new team Tampa Bay. He is a playmaker with potential for a
big year if he stays healthy
#4 Overrated Kicker: Adam Vinatieri
WHY? The former Super Bowl hero’s skills are declining, and Vinatieri only
attempted three field goals in the red zone last year on a strong
Colts offense. Expect that trend to continue.
#5 Most underrated Defensive Player: Trent Cole
WHY? Another Pro Bowl snub, Cole is a consistent performer who plays on a
strong Philadelphia defense. He will rack up at least 10 sacks.
