Draftexpress is now dead. All their people and content are moving to ESPN domain and to be locked by ESPN insider. Hopefully the Ringer (Kevin O'Connor) or CBS Sports could take advantage of the new vacancy in draft analysis.

Awesome.  So, in all likelihood this means they're going to cut down on analysis, focus more on entertainment and social justice, and stick the interesting stuff behind a pay wall, right?
I'm not sure why you had to drag social justice into this, but sure. Not everyone can be Kirk and Callahan :D

I prefer keeping sports and politics separate, except in rare and relevant circumstances. It doesn't matter if it's Rush Limbaugh or Bomani Jones.

Their very useful archives will remain available.

Something that valuable shouldn't remain free forever, and it's nice to see Givony et al. get rewarded for building the best draft site out there, by far.

Shame it's going to ESPN though. They have a history of ruining things, and I've mostly been able to cut that site out of my regular visits.

I can think of a million other more important issues I have with ESPN before I get to social justice. But that's just me.

ESPN is where sports analysis goes to die. They care more about talking about politics than they do sports. ESPN can never match what they had with early-mid '00's NFL Primetime.
