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 164 prospects (Updated 2/22/20). 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 146 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.
