Website Updates and Feedback

Hello everyone, I’m Gary, the new web guy and tech guru for Great Blue North. I’ve been working on this site for a few months now and after a few false starts, we went live with the new site on December 29th.

I’ve created this page to post news, information and updates about the new design as well as to answer questions about it.

We’ve got some exciting plans for the site in the coming months, so stay tuned.

If you’ve got any suggestions, questions, complaints or comments, feel free to leave us a note in the comment section below.

    The Rams Titans Trade stipulates the #3 pick the Rams give the Titans in 2017 will be the comp pick that they will be getting for Janoris Jenkins….which is what is now predicted will happen based on salary and performance. So Rams will be keeping their own 3rd this year and giving up the compensatory pick.

    I think the 1st pick in the 3rd round by the Browns is still up in the air. I believe it will go to the Browns if they receive 3rd round compensatory picks. New England will get one of the compensatory picks. Check your traded picks. You all were saying the pick would become a #4 in 2018. You do a great job. I check your site daily. Even the sponsors.

    Hey Pete,

    Your website shows that the Browns don’t have a 4th round pick. You might want to rethink what you are saying about the Browns trade for Jamie Collins.

      We did! If the Browns don’t get a #3 comp pick this year (and after losing free agent C Alex Mack to Atlanta this past winter most expect they will) the Patriots will get a 4th rounder in 2018. PS who is Pete?

        Sorry Colin, I thought I was refering to Pigskin Pete. Thanks for clearing this up for me. I am a Browns fan and hoping for the best. I check your site daily and think youi guys are the best out there covering the NFL and the NFL Draft. One name to remember is Tyler Orlosky of WVU. He is an excellent OLineman and should be in your top 100 by draft time.

    I’ve been a Vikings fan since they became a team in the 60s, and I really like how your doing the draft comparison rankings to position taken vs GBN vs Ourlads vs PP… that and your summary. Can you do that for the Vikes? Craig

        After years of head scratchers, like the late pick of K. Williams, Troy W. at #7 and Underwood picks, it’s been good to see something solid in back to back to back years.

        Oh… that was quick, thanks!!!

          Things have really gotten better in the Vikes Draft Room with SPIELMAN in recent history. Yes I remember some of their seeming Draft Day bumbles. Pigskin

    On your Big Board, you have Zeke Elliott, RB from Ohio State ranked # 6. No other site that I have seen has him ranked at all. Are you sure that is approximately correct?

    Tell all to keep up the good work, I have been a big fan of GBN for 10 years!

      Okay, now that I have posted and gotten egg all over my face, I see that Zeke is short for Ezekiel, and all is well in Draft Land. Oh well. We’ll still have a wonderful time in Chicago next month.

        JIm, don’t beat yourself up on the name thing. I am constantly flashing back to players with the same last name, but different first names or vice versa and my mind subconsciously inserts the wrong name. Pigskin

    Been A loyal ready for years, but your links don’t seem to work on my tablet or PC. When I try to scroll to a link, say, SELECTION ORDER, it disappears. What is your fix?

    Hey Guys,
    Been following your site for years (especially the positional rankings), but I do have a question about the new format. Where does one find your current Mock Draft, barring the search option? It’s not listed under any of the tabs.

      Hi David: We noted earlier in the week that with all the trades and free agent moves our mock was really out of date so we took it down; should have a new one Friday though. ed

    I like the new site, however I wish the font setting was in bold.

    Really like the new web site format – very easy to read – good job. Here’s hoping you can design the draft preview site for this summer and next fall I will be able to use the GBN preview of draft eligible players as a guide to watching college football next fall. Keep up the good work – read your site each day.

    I guess I’m in the minority,but I liked the old site much better.I knew where everything was at and could find what I was looking for much easier.

      Steve, just keep visiting and click on more sites and drop downs and before you know it you’ll be totally comfortable with the new site design. Go with the flow and embrace change… it is inevitable.

    The site looks great. I have been a loyal reader for a decade, and it is great to see the content is just as good as ever, while the layout/navigation is vastly imporved. Keep up the great work! I like the twitter links to your posts, this is a nice a much need touch! I want to see the GBNREPORT have a bigger twitter presence, you deserve it!

    Your site is missing the draft Trade Value Chart that was available on your old site

      Colin will check that out. It is listed as a separate item in drop-down for Draft INfo.
