The RotoViz Scouting Index – Version 10

With pro days mostly finished and the draft about three weeks away, this is probably the final iteration of the RotoViz Scouting Index. Let’s take a look at the final scouting ranks.


Carson Wentz61.510510
Jared Goff61.510510
Paxton Lynch63.09630
Connor Cook64.38840
Dak Prescott56.26450
Christian Hackenberg56.46360
Cardale Jones56.6627-1
Kevin Hogan57.85680
Jacoby Brissett59.64790
Brandon Doughty510.642100
Vernon Adams612.042103
Nate Sudfeld512.03512-1
Brandon Allen512.43313-1
Cody Kessler513.82614-1
Jake Coker514.22415#N/A
Jeff Driskel514.82116#N/A

Jared Goff has been the top quarterback all along. Carson Wentz has bullied his way up the rankings, while Paxton Lynch has fallen off a bit.


The scouts also don’t see much difference between Dak Prescott, Christian Hackenberg, and Cardale Jones.

Peyton Barber – a potentially undervalued SEC back – and C.J. Prosise this year’s David Johnson? – made modest jumps this week, while Jordan Howard slipped three spots. Looking at the RBs who made it into this final version of the RSI, here’s how their rankings have fared since December.

The “Change” column is just showing the difference in rank from the first time the player appeared in the RSI, until this final version. Wendell Smallwood, whom we covered here, is the biggest riser. Tyler Ervin is another big climber – who could really shake up rookie drafts.
