*Jace Amaro heading into Jr season: A closer look at the Jets' picks: Round 2/49 -- Jace Amaro, TE, 6-5, 265, Texas Tech...The Jets are finally part of the tight end revolution. Amaro's numbers were certainly aided by Texas Tech's spread offense -- he set an FBS record with 1,352 receiving yards last season -- but there's no questioning he has the size and skill set of the modern day tight end. Amaro has 34-inch arms and lined up in the slot almost 90 percent of the time at Texas Tech. Time will tell if he has a Jimmy Graham-type impact on the Jets, but he will be an immediate asset in a suddenly viable passing game. - The Sports Xchange
Odell Beckham, Jr. heading into Jr season: A closer look at the Giants' picks: Round 1/12 -- Odell Beckham Jr., WR, 5-11, 198, Louisiana State...Beckham, Jr. is an explosive playmaker who should help draw some of the double-team coverage away from Victor Cruz. Beckham also has produced as a return specialist, but he'll probably slide right into Hakeem Nicks' old spot on the outside. - The Sports Xchange

Number of Players NFL Draft Scout is currently tracking: (Player Tracking) - Players are rated and updated throughout the season. Those with a "99" or "999" are currently listed but UNRATED. The top % of these players have extensive scouting reports created, official NFL draft biographies by Dave Te' Thomas prepared (full versions only available here at Draft Scout), combine & pro day workout results posted, media interviews & more included in their profile during the senior season.

NFLDraftScout.com uses the best verifiable 40-yard time for each player. There is no single, official 40-yard time for any player, even those who run at the Indianapolis Combine. Those players who participate in the 40 yards at the Combine actually run twice and on each run they are timed by two hand-held stopwatches and one electronic timer (that is actually initiated by hand on the player's first movement). Combine data includes all six of those times for each player, but no single official time. Team scouts and coaches have various approaches for getting the 40 time they use from those six timings. Some use averages. Some throw out slowest and fastest and then average the rest. In deference to each player, NFLDraftScout.com attempts to use the best verifiable time that seems appropriate for each player. That is the 40 time we post.
