Shamarko Thomas heading into Sr season: A closer look at the Steelers' picks: Round 4/111 - Shamarko Thomas, S, 5-9, 217, Syracuse...Desperate for safeties after losing backups Will Allen and Ryan Mundy as free agents and with aging Troy Polamalu, 32, and Ryan Clark, 34. Only thing holding him back is his height and history of concussions. The Steelers traded their 2014 third-round pick to the Browns to take him. - The Sports Xchange
Ryan Nassib heading into rSr season: A closer look at the Giants' picks: Round 4/110 - Ryan Nassib, QB, 6-2, 227, Syracuse...The Giants traded up six spots to nab this young prospect, giving up their sixth-round spot in order to begin grooming Eli Manning's possible successor. While Nassib might not see the field for a while, if he develops, he could bring value down the line in a trade. - The Sports Xchange
*Chandler Jones heading into rJr season: A closer look at the Patriots' picks: Round 1/21 -- Chandler Jones, DE, 6-5, 265, Syracuse...This is clearly the player the Patriots coveted from Day 1, as evident by the fact they traded up to get him, dealing the 27th overall pick and a third-round selection to move to No. 21. Jones has already drawn some comparisons to Giants' defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul based on his pure athleticism, and it's obvious the Patriots needed help with the pass rush. - The Sports Xchange
*Justin Pugh heading into rJr season: A closer look at the Giants' picks: Round 1/19 - Justin Pugh, T, 6-5, 307, Syracuse...The Giants need offensive line depth at guard and right tackle and Pugh can play anywhere along the line. While he'll compete this year at right tackle, a move inside to guard could be in his future. - 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.
"I have always read Sports Weekly and when I found out you guys were bringing this online, I was excited. This is WAY more than I expected, an insane amount of info!"
"The best draft information out there, period!"
"The Draft Scout team works hard. You'll be amazed by the amount of info. Plus, not alot of people know this but they think they fly under the radar here. They don't. They are the major players in college player info distribution. Look around all the major websites (not the mom & pop draft sites) on the net. It's them doing it!"
"I bet you guys save agents a TON of money. If not, they might as well lay off their own research guys, you guys are it!"
"A never ending virtual book of non-stop, year-round college football greatness. Just to see the players rated together and moving around during the season, then the post season player draft reports are books of their own. Well worth the 25 bucks a year, and then some!"
"I belong to a few premium draft sites but I always visit yours first. In fact, many times a day. Thanks for the great service!"
"You guys are Pros and it shows. We look forward to working with you much more in the future."

"They just keep adding more and more ways to compare players, there's nothing else like what's inside this great website."
"The most detailed draft profiles (yes, they are Official folks), what's next? Dave Te' Thomas is the MAN!"
"I have been following Brian's work since 1998 with his football video game sites. His approach to detail is unique. What he has done here blows my mind."
