The Laddies
Presents Ourlads' Awards to draft eligible players in various categories by position, from the creme de la creme to free agent finds. (In some years, lack of space does not allow for inclusion of the Laddies in the Guide. But in this event, they will always be found in the April newsletter).

Our April newsletter is included, free of charge, with purchase of the Guide. It comes out shortly prior to the draft. In addition to the Laddies (when they do not appear in the Guide itself), you will find articles where some of our Lads are allowed to vent their feelings regarding players they found to be particular favorites or players who they feel are overrated, lacking something, or are otherwise disappointing.

Review Issue

In the past, we put out a combined Review/Preview issue. A few years ago, we decided to publish separate Review and Preview editions. This was done to get the Review into the hands of our subscribers earlier while allowing for additional time to prepare our Preview Issue. The Review Issue is a thirty-six page booklet that includes:

A Round-by-Round Log of the year's NFL Draft

Team-by-Team Evaluations
With each team receiving grades from excellent to poor for the quality of its selections.

A Team-by-Team listing of draft choices

A Review of free agency

Post-draft/pre-camp Depth Charts

Touching on the draft, free agency, and other issues.

Passed-Over Talent and Free Agent Signings
