 — I was with most people on Taywan Taylor early on: “Typical mid-major WR over-achiever, pumped stats guy.”  Then I conducted a deeper study. You need to read about what I saw…

ESPN (as of this publish date) #8 WR prospect, #83 overall

Dynasty Rookie Draft (ADP as of this publish date): #9 WR taken, #21 overall



The preeminent NFL Draft and Dynasty Rookie Draft scouting service – College Football has launched its sixth year of scouting analytics and detailed reports, rankings and coverage of all things NFL Draft…including the college all-star bowls, the NFL Combine, and the draft itself. Our analysis is like none other, designed to defy and confound the mainstream coverage – who else had David Johnson on par with Todd Gurley in 2015? Or Tyrell Williams as a top WR prospect in 2015? Or Jatavis Brown and Sean Davis as top defensive prospects in 2016? Who else railed against Laquon Treadwell and Jameis Winston from the jump in their draft years? What will we discover with our computer scouting models in 2017?

For a completely different scouting service, visit Originally designed for NFL personnel departments, it has become home to the high stakes dynasty and fantasy profiteers – come see why that one person in your league always finds all those players ahead of everyone else…or become that person.
