Links to all essays, analysis, pre-draft coverage, and scouting reports about 2022 NFL Draft prospects come from research Matt Waldman and the Rookie Scouting Portfolio staff undertakes to write the Rookie Scouting Portfolio Publication.
Now in the 17th year of publication, the RSP is the best of both worlds: a summarized magazine of reports, rankings, and analysis that also shows its work at the back of the book. It covers at least 150 skill position prospects and is available on April 1.
Below is a small taste (and I mean small…) of the work that goes into the Rookie Scouting Portfolio. Go to this page for a running list of who will be profiled in the 2021 RSP publication.
Boiler Room and Scouting Lens episodes are short-form videos less than 10 minutes in length. Film Room videos are long-form content.
