Players Studied for Matt Waldman’s 2020 Rookie Scouting Portfolio Publication

Players Studied for Matt Waldman’s 2020 Rookie Scouting Portfolio Publication

Matt Waldman’s running list of 2020 NFL Draft prospects who will appear in the April 1 RSP publication.

Each year, I like to list the players who will be in the Rookie Scouting Portfolio publication. If any of these players return to school, I will save them for the 2021 publication.

The opportunity to pre-order the 2020 RSP begins December 5.

Learn more about the RSP here.

So far, I have studied 174 prospects (Updated 3/3/20). Those returning to school who are listed below will be in the 2021 RSP. The usual range of players in the RSP publication spans 150-175. I estimate the final total (once I exclude returning upperclassmen studied in 2020) will be between 150-175 players.

So far, I have studied 155 players who will be in 2020’s pre-draft publication. Many of the quarterbacks with late-round or UDFA value not listed below will likely appear in the post-draft publication.

For the most in-depth analysis of offensive skill players available (QB, RB, WR, and TE), pre-order the 2020  Rookie Scouting Portfolio for $21.95 available for download April 1.  

If you’re a fantasy owner and interested in purchasing past publications for $9.95 each, the 2012-2019 RSPs also have a Post-Draft Add-on that’s included at no additional charge.  

Best, yet, 10 percent of every sale is set aside until the RSP has reached its annual goal of donating $5,000 Darkness to Light to combat sexual abuse.
