Trying to keep up with all the activity around the
2013 NFL Draft, we've added draft transactions to the bottom of that page, as well as adding previous years (see 2012 trades and 2011 trades). In addition, I've added team-based trade summaries to each team draft page, through which I have learned that the Broncos briefly held the pick that turned into Doug Martin.

In conjunction with the
NFL Draft features you can find on the P-F-R front page, we've also added Draft criteria to the Play Index Player Season Finder.
Click "[+] Show draft options" at the bottom of the form to call up a sub-menu that lets you narrow your season finder search down to
the year a player was drafted, the round/pick in which he was selected, the drafting team, his college/ conference, position out of college, and more.
Give it a try, and be sure to
let us know if you have any questions or comments.

Just a note that we've added the annual
Draft Preview to the site, which shows the 2013 draft order along with the typical quality of players you can get at each slot (and the best players ever taken in each slot by Approximate Value).
New for 2013, we also assembled a list of
2013 draft prospects at each position, cross-linked with their stats pages (when available) at S-R/College Football.
These features go hand in hand with our
Draft Section, which has results of all past drafts, and the customizable draft finder tool.

College Football at Sports-Reference.com. We now have passing, rushing, and receiving stats for all FBS (nee Division I-A) schools dating back to the 1977 season, and for schools from prominent conferences ( ACC, Big 8/Big 7, Big Ten, Pac-12/Pac-10/Pac-8/AAWU/PCC, SEC, and SWC) we have passing, rushing, and receiving stats dating back to the 1956 season.

PFR user Oscar asked today about whether we had a football version of Baseball-Reference's
Hall of Fame standards using Weighted Career Approximate Value. To that end, I analyzed weighted career AV data on retired players who started their careers in 1950 or later. Here was a breakdown of all Hall of Famers in that group:
Using a regression formula, we can also say what your odds of making the Hall are at any given Weighted Career AV threshold:
