*Travis Frederick heading into rJr season: A closer look at the Cowboys' picks: Round 1/31 - Travis Frederick, C, 6-3, 312, Wisconsin...The Cowboys traded down from 18 to 31 after their top early targets were gone and used the pick for Frederick. He was projected to go in the second and as late as the third round. But the Cowboys were higher on him than most and felt he was their last best option to help them upgrade their offensive line. He should walk in and be the starter at center. - The Sports Xchange
*Peter Konz heading into rJr season: Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff was fine with sitting out the first and fourth rounds of this draft. He traded away those picks as part of the Julio Jones deal. With only six picks, the Falcons were happy with their haul. They wanted to add some competition along the offensive line and were elated to snap up Wisconsin center Peter Konz with their second round pick. They also drafted mammoth Southern Mississippi tackle Lamar Holmes in the third round. "Peter is a lunch-pail guy," Dimitroff said. "He's a tough, hard-nosed guy, who has the versatility to play both center and guard which is important." Konz is a solid pass blocker and could be the team's center of the future. The Falcons don't believe they reached on Holmes. "I can't comment on why he was projected to go later," Dimitroff said. "Sometimes when you have a JC transfer type of player, the prognosticators are behind from a recognition standpoint." BEST PICK: Center/Guard Peter Konz: He could be a factor at guard as well or be the center of the future. He pulled and trapped from the center position with the Badgers and has a nice anchor point in pass protections. "In terms of Peter, he's going to start at the guard position for us, but he will get some work at center as well," Falcons coach Mike Smith said. "We'll start cross-training these guys from the very beginning." - The Sports Xchange
*Melvin Gordon heading into rJr season: A closer look at the Chargers' five picks: Round 1/15 -- Melvin Gordon, RB, 6-0, 195, Wisconsin...The Chargers were so desperate to improve last year's 30th-ranked rushing attack that it flipped first-round picks and gave the 49ers a fourth this year and a fifth next year to snag Gordon. The club loves his burst, his physical nature and his durability. He would be easy to write off as a bruising runner from the Big 10 but he has speed and the acceleration that could make him a difference-maker. - The Sports Xchange

Kevin Zeitler heading into Sr season: It used to be that Bengals drafts would be exercises in frustration but the past three have been un-Bengallike in their results. With 10 picks, they addressed key needs on offense and defense, using five on each side. Besides finding their starting right guard, they have competition on the defensive line, cornerback and tight end. They also drafted two wide receivers who will compete to start opposite A.J. Green. The draft is not flashy but they did stock themselves with some depth and got younger. In many ways, it followed the way the Ravens and Steelers have attacked past drafts. BEST PICK: Guard Kevin Zeitler: The Bengals moved down six spots and also got a third-round pick from New England. They liked both David DeCastro and Zeitler but Zeitler might be a better fit because he is considered to be slightly better as a run blocker. He also gives them their starting right guard for the next five years. - The Sports Xchange
Chris Borland heading into rSr season: A closer look at the 49ers' picks: Round 3/77 -- Chris Borland, ILB, 5-11, 248, Wisconsin...San Francisco is facing a potential six-week absence for All-Pro NaVorro Bowman to start 2014 after sustaining tears to his ACL and MCL in the conference title game. The 49ers liked what they had in Michael Wilhoite, but adding Borland gives them a player that could start right away providing minimal dropoff behind the league's top duo in Bowman and Patrick Willis. That's provided his problem shoulders don't give him more issues. - The Sports Xchange

Montee Ball heading into Sr season: A closer look at the Broncos' picks: Round 2/58 -- Montee Ball, RB, 5-10, 217, Wisconsin...Four days after declaring Willis McGahee the "big back" and Ronnie Hillman the "change of pace back," Elway and Fox drafted Ball, and immediately dubbed him the "three-down back." The all-time leader in touchdowns among Division I backs, Ball proved remarkably durable in spite of a massive workload. His arrival puts last year's team-leading rushers, McGahee and Knowshon Moreno, on notice. Although the Broncos don't have to cut one of them immediately, one won't be on the roster when the 2013 season begins, and whoever remains might be as insurance in case Ball falters. - The Sports Xchange

Beau Allen heading into Sr season: A closer look at the Eagles' picks: Round 7/224 - Beau Allen, NT, 6-2, 333, Wisconsin...Allen doesn't move very well, but he's a big-body run-stuffer, which is something the Eagles don't have. Their starting nose tackle, Bennie Logan is lighter and more athletic and can line up inside or outside. Allen is strictly a two-down nose tackle. - 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.

"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!"
