Matt Waldman’s Reads Listens Views is back and devoted to a short list of recommended reads, listens, and views for the week.
If you’re new to the Rookie Scouting Portfolio blog, welcome. Every Friday, I post links to pieces that I’ve found personally compelling or to content I hope will eventually scratch that itch when I get around to it.
You may not like everything listed here, but you’re bound to like something.
One of the RSP’s readers is Alejandro Montoro @RouteRunning and @TheSpanishBowl on Twitter. He’s the author of the Route Running’s draft guide. It’s a publication devoted to Spanish speakers. If you know someone into the NFL Draft who is more comfortable with consuming content in Spanish, this is a good recommendation for them.
Here’s Alejandro’s summary of the guide:
It’s the only draft guide published in Spanish on the Internet with more than 140 detailed profiles and colorful, optimized design for mobile devices, desktops and printing specific pages of interest. It’s totally free!
And if you’d like to give appreciation for the work in the form of payment, you can also send them money via PayPal. There’s also an extensive Q&A interview with me in the publication.

Morris Dees weathered criticism for decades amidst Southern Poverty Law Center’s groundbreaking legal work – I admire the cause of the SPLC but the complaints from within also underscore an important point: Liberal and left-leaning mindsets can be, and often are, racist. Some of the most damaging racist behaviors I’ve seen come from left-leaning individuals.
