The 2004 TFY Draft Guide will be the seventh consecutive year Tony Pauline has published what is considered the most comprehensive NFL Draft guide, a 160-page book covering more than 620 player profiles and in-depth scouting reports.
Tony Pauline's Bio:
Originally working with reporters and draft publications in the New York area more than 15-years ago, Tony branched out in 1997, quickly making the TFY Draft Preview a household name amongst draftniks and NFL scouts.
The draft is a year round event for Tony as he spends his summers watching three-to-four game films daily, then his fall weekends traveling the country to personally scout the nation's top-prospects in action.
Since 2000 Tony offered what is now considered groundbreaking, live coverage of both the Senior Bowl and the Indianapolis Combines, the most important pre-draft scouting events of the year. Always the first to report stories from either venue, his exhaustive evaluations throughout the year are used as a research tool by NFL franchises and fans alike.
Who was your biggest hit in the draft, what about your biggest miss?
"Biggest hit? Two immediately come to mind- In 1997 I publicly wrote that Mike McKenzie was the most underrated defensive back in that draft."
How do you scout the players, go to games, game tape?
"Both...I watch game film 11 months a year; from May to August I review the previous season's film to get a good base going into the upcoming year. Then I hit the film hard again from September through March. I usually attend 14-to-15 games per season live on site besides going to practices, the Senior Bowl, combine, etc. Then I always speak with other scouts and exchange opinions. "
