Writing two separate analyses allows me the luxury to weigh my rankings less on draft stock and more on talent. It means that the post-draft can deliver a greater focus on organizational fit, team depth chart analysis, the impact of free agency, and analysis of this rookie class’ short-term strategic value.
Once they see it, many of my first-time readers tell me they’d pay far more than $21.95 for the post-draft alone. However, they also come to me 2-3 years later to tell me that the Pre-Draft RSP holds its value for at least 3-5 years and they still use it often.

Been flipping through @MattWaldman’s 2016 RSP for most of the day. An absolute must-own for any draftnik. Very thorough, detailed work…Frankly, I”m made at myself for only starting this year.
