Welcome to the brand new Draft Headquarters, our fifth edition in the seven-year history of the website. What once was a black-and-white site with single-digit page views has turned into one of the most accurate pre-draft scouting services online, viewed by scouts and executives throughout the NFL, and by the national media.
Since I started this website in 2007, I have developed a strong passion for scouting college football players. This passion has taken me to nearly every corner of the country looking for the top talent eligible for the annual draft. Whether it's attending the past six NFL Combines and Senior Bowls in person, working for NFL and Big Ten football teams, or producing an annual 250+ page Draft Preview, I have brought the same work ethic and enthusiasm to my work.
Things have come a long way since I released my first Draft Preview and I would like to thank my fan base for sticking with me over the years, especially those that have purchased every copy of my book dating back to '07.
I have spent hours on end watching film and keeping track of up and coming athletes so that I can deliver the most accurate and in-depth coverage in the country. Like anyone else, I have faced adversity around every corner and learned from both my experiences and mistakes. Year after year I look forward to scouting the next class and providing scouting reports for the fans of this site. For the first time, my scouting reports are free to the public as a thank you to those that have been the most loyal to me.
Once again, thank you for visiting the brand new Draft Headquarters. Enjoy!
