2020 Draft Scout Weekly, Now til’ Jan 20, 2021
Updates Sent every Wednesday Night thru Jan 20, 2021
Jan 13, 2021 Update: End of Season Edition, Building for 2020/2021 Draft, Jan 20, 2021.
**PLEASE NOTE: Between Now and Jan 20, 2021 is the MOST VOLATILE time in this whole process. I have compiled everything to match all season, when in reality, many things are happening to it all, data points are moving 14-18 hours a day. Players returning to school with their extra year on the same team, transferring to a new team, end of season conference awards, all-Star game invites, etc, etc. The process of preparing for Spring FCS Ball has just started as well.
This will be the last in-season update. Next Wednesday’s edition starts the Draft period 4 months. Re-subscriptions may be needed, if not sent out. I’ll sort thru and see. Thanks!

Draft Scout’s 2021, 2022, 2023 and NEW 2024 Database Exports, VERY Fluid.
Updated Top 750 2021 Draft Eligible w/(*) Underclassmen so far have been moved into 2021. Opt back in’s will remain unless they change their mind and return for 2022. It’s only a handful of players, not even close to as many as most thought, with most coming back.
Announced & Projected mix of 50 Underclassmen in the Top 100, the yearly average. 30 more underclassmen will get Drafted in rounds 4-7, 80 of a Total 125 Average. We’ll see what happens to that 125 number. Opinions vary.
Extensive work on the following Teams have been done the past few weeks (player by player, info, all changes & projected 3-deep depth charts): Shooting for all 130 FBS Teams by Halloween with a mix of updated scout grades/grade changes mixed in along the way.
08/20 Senior Bowl Watchlist, 250 Players are in the AS Watchlist Row, next to the AS Game row in the 2021 Seniors only sheet. Half the size of last year, common math, soo the gaps are plenty.

Draft Scout has joined the Rokfin Football family moving forward for content & promotions.
Areas of the current Draft Scout website will point to our Rokfin landing page…
I have been fortunate to be able to work along side and the point man behind a lot of people in this industry in my 20 years doing this. To be able to be apart of the new Football channel at Rokfin with a recruiting expert legend like Tom Lemming right next to us is an honor. I have been approached to combine or merge with, work with/on many other projects since our distributor, The Sports Xchange closed in late 2018. Something like this I feel is the right move for Draft Scout right now and will allow me the help and time to rebuild Draft Scout into what I always thought it could and should be.
