Footballsfuture started out as a small site around the turn of the century that provided information about the NFL’s draft, providing pre-draft analysis of college football’s prospects, and an extensive mock draft as well. It is updated often and provides great insight into the NFL draft.
I recommend this site to any fan, or new fan of the NFL. It is a great way to expand your knowledge of college football, the National Football League (professional league) and football itself. It is a great source for mock drafts and for anyone to get a jump on the NFL and the draft.
All of this can be found on the home page.
First and foremost is the mock draft. This mock draft has been cited as a source by various writers around the league. It’s a great resource for those who want to get a feel for who their team might be looking at. For ever predicted selection, there’s a description and the reasoning behind the chosen player. It is a very good way to get accustomed to the prospects as well as a general feel for the needs of each team.
Footballsfuture also releases their positional rankings for further insight into the prospects. This is a great resource if you’re making your own mock draft or are trying to size up the draft for yourself. It is a great tool to see some of the names for each position, what school they’re from, and such.
Other information included are the yearly NFL free agents. This is another great resource for those trying to find out what is available in the league for general interest or if you’re trying to find information for a mock off-season. Another section is the team needs which gives a rundown on what each team might be looking for. Another great resource for insight into teams you know or don’t know.
The best part of FootballsFuture.com is the forum. The home page reports that there are over 35,000 members who have signed up, and that is a very large community. The forums are divided into different sections, some for general NFL talk, for NFL News talk, for talk about mock drafts, and others are for individual teams where fans come together and talk about their teams newest additions, their possible draft, and other team-related news. There are several other sub-forums for off-topic talk such as Entertainment and the Madden NFL Video Game forum, as well as sub-forums for other sports such as Baseball and Basketball. The forum is maintained by the admin, Webmaster, and his helpful and proactive group of moderators. The moderators of Footballsfuture.com are definitely the key to such a successful forum. At footballsfuture.com, you can expect mature and clean talk about the NFL, the draft, and whatever else the hot topics are. You are guaranteed that the junk material won’t be there, because the moderators are very quick to clean them up. Overall though, the moderators are a friendly bunch, and they are all regular members who have been entrusted with extra powers, and are chosen carefully and are generally very helpful and friendly people who really understand football.
The forums are a great place for you to get your mock draft out there in the public, to receive reactions and insight from fans around the league. The forums are very active, so you are guaranteed feedback. It is also a great place for you to talk football and learn football. From my stay there, I’ve learned a whole lot about football, the philosophy, and trends of teams and the league. It is an awesome community that usually gets people to stick around for a long time and talk football with some of the more knowledgeable fans of the NFL.
I recommend exploring FootballsFuture.com for any fan, or new fan of football. It is a great resource to expand your NFL knowledge, and it is very encouraged that you check out the forums. It is free, and filled with very good people.
