At the suggestion of our illustrious member BirdBrain, I've created these subforums in order for members of the site to post scouting reports of the various players for this year's upcoming draft. And at some point in the future either all of this information will be compiled into scouting profiles to post on the Draft Central site, or potentially linked to here from that site.

All opinions about prospects are welcome, even if you disagree with an opinion of another "scout." But unless you are posting about an evaluation of that particular player, please refrain from posting.

I don't have a problem if someone posts a particular QB has a strong arm, and another replies that he doesn't think said QB has a strong arm, and then that being followed up with a discussion of why you may agree or disagree about that, because that has to do with that player. But it's not a forum where you post something that basically says you like or don't like this prospect and think the Falcons should pass on him or take him in the draft. As part of your scouting report you are welcome to include why you think said player will be a good/bad fit for the Falcons and/or when you think he should be drafted, but the scouting reports aren't for "normal" draft-related discussion.

The basic rule of thumb is that if you haven't seen the guy play, then you have no business posting.

I would also post a Sticky on the main page, forum and home page, to let the other member know what this is and where they can find it. Some members don't venture past the main forum otherwise.
