NFL prospects are evaluated and ranked by leading draft expert Tony Pauline, publisher of TFYDraftPreview.com.
The database also features player pages from TheInsiders.com's Scout database, which includes the work of the network's college scouts and team publishers, as well as the NFL publishers. Access to rankings and individual player pages is free to all users.
"This is the fulfillment of our vision of tracking players from high school to college and through their professional careers," said Jim Heckman, TheInsiders.com founder and CEO. "We've already been compiling massive data on players at the high school, college and pro levels by our scouts and publishers all over the country. This NFL Draft database provides the bridge between the college and pro levels."
Respected as one of the most detailed and well-researched NFL Draft analysts in the business, Pauline has brought in-depth player information to football fans for more than a decade. Originally working with reporters and draft publications in the New York area more than 15 years ago, Pauline branched out in 1997, quickly making the TFY Draft Preview a household name amongst draftniks and NFL scouts.
Since 2000, Pauline offered what is now considered groundbreaking, live coverage of both the Senior Bowl and NFL combine, 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.
Pauline has ranked prospects, top to bottom, by position. Users can sort results by overall rank, position, college, home state and name.
"The NFL Publishers on our network who go that extra mile for their fan base really need to take some credit for the success of this network, we are finally starting to work as a team, and it shows," said Stephan Miller, TheInsiders.com's director of professional sports. "The future is very bright for TheInsiders NFL Network."
