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

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.

For the most in-depth analysis of offensive skill players available (QB, RB, WR, and TE), pre-order the 2021  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 2012-2020 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.
