There is none. I would love it for you to be as detailed as possible, but it's not a requirement. If you simple want to post the following:

"Colt McCoy doesn't have a big arm, but neither did Drew Brees, and plays in a similar offense and is a mobile guy. And I think like Brees he'll be a good to great starter in the NFL."

That is perfectly acceptable.

Personally, I'm going to use the same format I did last year, which is each prospect is broken down in the following categories:

Pros: What he does well
Cons: What he doesn't do well.
Overview: A basic summary of the player, and also contains notes about his career in college such as injuries, stats, or the scheme he played in.
NFL Forecast: A projection of what I expect the players' NFL career to be like.
ATL Forecast: A projection of what I expect that players career to be like if he was on the Falcons.
Value: My opinion on where this person should be drafted.

And for some of the better prospects, I might break down how they stack up in different skills/categories, such as Arm Strength, Accuracy, Decision Making, etc. for QBs or Speed, Ball Skills, Man Coverage abilities, etc. for CBs.

But others are free to break down prospects in whatever format they are most comfortable with. If it takes them 500 words or 5 words to do it, then so be it.

However I would like people to obey the format when creating topics/threads for a new player.

And that is:

Player Name, Position, School

For example:

Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska


Please be sure to check your spelling of the player names just to make it easier if/when people are searching through for prospects.

I think this is a good approach Pudge. Some of the guys may feel a little intimidated by the "wordy" reports...this format will make it easier IMHO.

I intend on posting my top 100 players soon. I have 3 binders that I have been sorting out. Right now I'm into the playoffs.

There's no rush. I'm probably not going to be done watching all the taped games I have until probably after the Super Bowl. If there was a deadline I was going to set it would probably be the end of March when I'd hope we would have been done and able to post stuff.

But if you have some stuff done then, nothing wrong with posting it now.
