NOW AVAILABLE: Joe Marino’s 2017 NFL Draft Scouting Portfolio

I’ve been looking forward to this day.

After a 10-month process to evaluate the 2017 NFL Draft class, my scouting portfolio is available for your reading pleasure.

Your purchase of a NDT Scouting Premium Subscription gets you my 2017 NFL Draft Scouting Portfolio, Kyle Crabbs’ 2017 NFL Draft Prospectus and a 12-month calendar of premium content that takes you through our scouting journey. We aim to be as transparent as possible with our scouting process and this subscription takes you a long for the ride!


2017 marks the first crop of prospects that I evaluated under my numerical grading system All positions are graded in five areas, which are weighted differently per position:  Film, Athleticism, Size, Production and Resume

  • Film:  Weighted grade dedicated to position-specific traits relative to each position.
  • Athleticism:  Weighted grade dedicated to athletic testing results that consider baseline measurements relevant to optimal NFL position/role.
  • Production:  Weighted grade dedicated to the on-field production of the prospect that considers sustained statistical achievement.
  • Size:  Weighted grade dedicated to the frame and measurements of the prospect relevant to optimal NFL position/role.
  • Resume:  Weighted grade dedicated to considering the accolades, injuries and off-field issues regarding the prospect.

I cannot stress enough that my evaluations are not predictive in how I think the prospects will get drafted. It’s my personal evaluation of the player and how I stack them based on best chance for NFL success and how the prospect should be valued based solely on my preferences.

Whether you’re a casual fan looking for more information on the upcoming NFL players, someone new to player evaluation or a seasoned draftnik looking for additional resources, our premium subscription provides content for all levels of interest in the football scouting world.
