Players Studied for Matt Waldman’s 2021 Rookie Scouting Portfolio Publication


Matt Waldman’s running list of 2021 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 2022 publication.

The opportunity to pre-order the 2021 RSP begins on December 15.

Learn more about the RSP here.

So far, I have studied 162 prospects. Those returning to school who are listed below will be in the 2022 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 2021) will be between 150-160 players.

Many of the quarterbacks with late-round or UDFA values not listed below will likely appear in the post-draft publication.

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.
