The 2016 RSP Post-Draft Tale of the Tape

Standing at 98 pages, the 2016 Rookie Scouting Portfolio Post-Draft is now available for download at Because a post-draft addendum is now a regular part of the RSP purchase, it has allowed me the luxury to weigh my rankings less on draft stock and more on talent until we see how opportunity knocks at the NFL Draft.

The post-draft addendum also affords me time to study, present, and rank additional players who are drafted or prominent free agent signings in May. This year, those players include Terron Beckham, Ricardo Louis, Hakeem Valles, Tyrone Davis, Tyreek Hill, Tevaun Smith, Darius Jackson and Moritz Boehringer.

Many of my first-time readers tell me they’d pay the full $19.95 for the post-draft alone. However, most of them tell me 2-3 years later that the April 1 pre-draft version holds his value for 3-5 years and they use it often. See what people are saying about the RSP.

  1. didnt i purchase this repot ….. how do i acess it… and if not why would i purchase the other one, and not wait for the post draft edition, thanks

    • Noah,

      The RSP is in two parts: the pre-draft that is available Apri1 1 and the post-draft available in early May. The pre-draft gives you a long-term outlook on the talent of each player. It’s essentially a scouting manual with a nod to fantasy football . The post-draft takes this research and analyzes these players through a fantasy lens after the NFL Draft has taken place. You get cheat sheets and analysis on how the NFL Draft changed the value of these players for the first 3-4 years of their careers.

      Both versions of the RSP are part of what you paid for. All you have to do is return to and use your login and password to download it from the 2016 link.

      New readers tend to ask the question about why wouldn’t you just wait for the post-draft RSP. They think that the post-draft is going to have more value for them so why even bother with the pre-draft. Most come back to me after 3-4 years of buying the RSP and tell me this is what they originally thought, but they find that the pre-draft version is more valuable than they realized because it gives them an unvarnished view of these players that helps with trades, waiver wire transactions, and other team building in their fantasy leagues.

      So Noah, if you already purchased the RSP pre-draft then go to the site and download the post-draft that is part of that purchase price.
