Rotoviz IDP Scouting Index: 2017 Version 2

The RotoViz Scouting Index (RSI) IDP version uses a variety of rankings that aren’t consistent across the board, as some scouting sites group all defensive line and linebackers together, and others separate them into edge rushers and outside or inside linebackers. I’m tracking the sites that separate the strong and free safeties as well as the different types of linebackers and defensive lineman. Most sites have posted updated NFL prospect rankings following the NFL combine, so let’s update our index. In this edition I’ll focus on outside linebackers, inside linebackers and safeties. Particular focus will be on strong safety and every down linebackers. Many of these players will be factors in the NFL Draft this Spring as well as many IDP rookie drafts. Tracking the scouting services is helpful for getting in the heads of scouts. We get clues about positional fit for these players and whether or not we should pay attention when one of these players are drafted. I believe some of the scouting sites have direct access to BLESTO or national scouting reports. Whenever I identify some actionable data from reviewing these rankings I’ll continue to pass that along to our subscribers here.
