The Draft Scout database was the FIRST to rank ALL scouted college football players in 1998 for EVERY level of professional football from NFL Draft Round One down to Tryouts and Local Pro Days as well as NFL Europe and more. In “OUR ERA”, this Database powered everything, including Video Games, Sports betting, Regional and Local Scouting lists for at least 21 NFL Teams and most major internet sites, including NFL.com. This information was utilized by Pro Football Agents, Trainers, Family, Friends, Girlfriends, Draft Analysts, College Football Fans & more.

Draft Scout built and maintains this college player information in FOUR YEAR Draft cycles. We don’t purchase this information from any sources. We build and maintain the backend ALL from scratch ourselves. Since 1998, it’s unique in design to track & rank college players for professional careers…from recruiting & advanced scouting through compiling and swaping/trading this very evolving data you are purchasing with team & league sources for the current Draft season.
College football team rosters are rebuilt after each Draft heading into the new college season, then updated & checked along with key depth chart building in the first few months of each college football season, aimed at the start of Draft season, Jan 20th of each new year. It’s a three, 4 month fluid, evolving process. September-January, College Football Season…January-May, Draft Season…May-August, Reload for Next Season.
