The Draft Network

● By Kyle Crabbs
TDN's scouting department is switching up how we rank players for the NFL draft in 2021. Throughout the summer months and the 2020 college football season, each of our scouts specialized in specific regions and conferences in order to bring as much knowledge as possible into the final evaluation process. Now, with the end of the 2020-21 season behind us, TDN's scouting department has logged preliminary grades on all of the players from their respective regions and is now in the process of crosschecking each other's work. By the end of the process, each of the scouts will have laid eyes and evaluated all of the top prospects in the country for this April's NFL draft, allowing them to have their own unique sets of rankings at each position and collectively with a final draft board.
