There are two broad aspects to scouting a prospect in any sport, which are their mental and physical makeup. Those two factors intersect to create what really matters: How well they play the game.

Here is a look into who will come out of the fray looking like a million bucks, and who might lose millions with a poor showing.

2014 NFL Draft: Mike Loyko’s Big Board

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

NEPD Editor: Mike Loyko

Early reports on the 2014 NFL Draft class are very promising. Compared to 2013 next year’s draft figures to be much deeper at key positions including Quarterback, Defensive End, Offensive Tackle and Outside Linebacker. The top of the draft especially features franchise players at multiple positions, which 2013 lacked. Each week throughout the year I will update my Big Board to reflect the top draft eligible prospects for the 2014 NFL Draft.

My ranking is not meant to be a mock draft or a projection as to where players will be drafted. The rankings reflect my evaluation of talent based on what I have scouted to this point. As the season progresses new names will be added and players will drop off.

How Jadeveon Clowney, Marqise Lee Would Shake Up the 2013 NFL Draft

Saturday, November 3rd, 2012

What would happen if Jadeveon Clowney was allowed to enter the 2013 draft?

NEPD Writer: Dan Hope

The topic of whether freshmen and sophomores should be allowed to enter the NFL draft received significant attention last Saturday, when junior South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore, who likely could have been a first-round pick after his freshman or sophomore season, suffered a severe right knee injury that leaves his football future significantly in jeopardy. What would happen if the top Sophomore prospects were allowed to enter the 2013 draft?
