Draft Scout News
03/09/17 - Alabama Pro day: Marlon Humphrey...On the draft process: "It's different than I thought it would be. People tell you how it will go, but you never really know until you're actually doing it." On his interactions with teams and scouts: "I just want teams to know that I'm a guy that's ready to work. I'm a physical corner, and I see myself being great, so I'm going to keep working until I'm that corner. All the interactions with teams have been good. Every time I walk into a different room and I shake the head coach's or GM's hand, it's just always unreal that I have this opportunity where I can walk in and share my name with these guys and show my case for why I think I should be one of the top corners in this class." - Alabama Football
01/08/17 - Alabama coach Nick Saban and Clemson coach Dabo Swinney are hopeful that new rules regarding how NFL teams can evaluate underclassmen will provide players better information on whether to go pro. The American Football Coaches Association and the NFL reached an agreement last year that allows underclassmen who are returning for another season of college football to participate in pro days at their schools. That will allow scouts and coaches to begin the evaluation process earlier. Each school is allowed to have five underclassmen participate, though it can request to have more. The change should give the NFL's college advisory committee more information and allow it to provide better feedback when underclassmen request evaluations.
"I think the philosophy here is the more information that the NFL can get on players, the more accurate they can be in evaluation," Saban said. "And I think that players are trying to make a business decision after three years in school, business decision being, where will I get drafted relative to if I stayed in school, where could I develop and get drafted a year from now and have a better opportunity for myself. "Because once you enter the draft, you can't improve your draft status. But if you stay in college you can improve your draft status dramatically." Underclassmen can request an evaluation from the advisory committee. The committee changed its rating system last year to potential first-round pick, potential second-round pick or neither, essentially recommending the player stay in school. The number of underclassmen entering the draft had been steadily rising in recent years and hit a record 98 in 2015. Last year that number dropped to 74 and coaches are hoping the new scouting rules can decrease it further. - AP Sports
