*Trae Waynes heading into rJr season: A closer look at the Vikings' 10 picks: Round 1/11 - Trae Waynes, CB, 6-0, 186, Michigan State...Has the size, arm length, speed (4.31) and cover ability to be the No. 2 corner the Vikings need to compete with the NFC North's big receivers.

Darqueze Dennard heading into Sr season: A closer look at the Bengals' picks: Round 1/24 -- Darqueze Dennard, CB, 5-11, 199, Michigan State...The Bengals needed to get younger at corner and felt lucky Dennard slipped into their laps at 24. Most had him projected five to 10 picks earlier, but he fits perfectly into a man-press scheme. - The Sports Xchange

*Jerel Worthy heading into rJr season: A closer look at the Packers' picks: Round 2/51 -- Jerel Worthy, DE, 6-2, 308, Michigan State...The first-round prospect's slide down the board enabled the Packers to jump up to get him.

*Le'Veon Bell heading into Jr season: A closer look at the Steelers' picks: Round 2/48 - Le'Veon Bell, RB, 6-1, 230, Michigan State...Should step right in and start in a backfield that regressed last season and ranked 26th in the NFL in rushing. His 1,793 yards rushing in 2012 was fifth in the country, second-most in MSU history. Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley compared him to Eddie George. - The Sports Xchange

Kirk Cousins heading into rSr season: A closer look at the Redskins' picks: Round 4/102 -- Kirk Cousins, QB, 6-3, 214, Michigan State...If the LeRibeus pick was surprising, this one was shocking. If Griffin, whom the Redskins paid a record price to acquire, is as good as they believe, Cousins will only see the field if the former is hurt. - The Sports Xchange

Jeremy Langford heading into rSr season: A closer look at the Bears' six picks: Round 4/106 - Jeremy Langford, RB, 6-1, 208, Michigan State...With Matt Forte missing minicamp and wanting a contract extension, the Bears could be looking long term with this one. Langford has a running style not unlike Forte's. He had the combine's fastest 40 time for backs (4.43) and is an adept cut-back runner, but lacks ability to break tackles or be a power back. He is far above average at picking up blitzes while pass blocking and at sliding out of the backfield as a receiver. This isn't a back along the lines of the power type coach John Fox has often had in the past. The plan eventually is to use him in a two- or three-back rotation. - 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.

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."
"Thanks for all your help with my son. No one would cover or show him off but you guys did and it got him alot of teams interested in his services. He made it into camp this fall."
"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."
These guys OWN the market. They are it! They also have stated what they plan to do and their expansion projects, it's amazing and I look very forward to it."
