2017 Draft Analysis
The essays, analysis, and scouting reports about recent NFL Draft prospects come from research I undertake to write the Rookie Scouting Portfolio Publication. Now in the 11th 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 April 1.
