NFL Draft Scouting

Alright, in anticipation of the NFL Draft on Thursday May 8, 2014, I've decided to provide my own insight into the various prospects. Seeing as how we are approximately 85 days away from the NFL Draft, I decided that I am going to aim to do the scouting on the top 10 listed players (as of today 2/14/2014) at positions of need for the Bears. Namely, I will be providing a scouting report for the top 10 players at each of the following positions:


In other words, there will be 60 scouting reports. Now, I'm not a professional scout, and I will I have no idea what an individual player's assignment is on any given down.

The safeties are the top 5 free safeties and the top 5 strong safeties. Reminder, I really don't know what I'm talking about, so please withhold on any name calling. Also, I will try to keep up on this, but it's quite an undertaking so please bear with me. I also reserve the right to jump from any position at any time. After I finish a particular category, I will rearrange the players to how I see fit. Once I finish it all, I will create a big board of all these players. Here's to hoping this lands me a job with the Bears ;)

  1. Ryan, you're amazing, and I will try to help you in any way possible. This is one hell of an undertaking and even if you only do 10 i'll be impressed. Do all sixty and somebody needs to hire you to take Kiper's job.
