While yes, the Las Vegas Raiders are geared up for a playoff run this season, no, it’s not too early to get a head start on your NFL Draft research. It doesn’t mean you’re giving up on the team or quitting on the season, it just means you’re a crazy person like me who enjoys watching the new wave of incoming professional football players.
This draft season, CBS Sports’ Chris Trapasso is offering up his scouting grade book to help NF Draft geeks like you and myself build their own big boards.
Trapasso’s grade book is completely customizable so you can use his scale or build your own, and best of all, it comes preloaded with 300 draft prospects so you have to go digging for names. It also has a list of traits for each position that you can change, keep the same, add to or replace.
I’m going to be using the grade book this year for my scouting and if you’re interested in learning more, check out the video below or head to ScoutingGradebook.com.
