Scout Inc.'s Grading Scale

90-100 Rare Prospect Player demonstrates rare abilities and can create game-impacting mismatches. A premier college player that has all the skill to take over a game and play at a championship level. Rates in the top 5 players in the nation at his position. A first round prospect.

80-89 Outstanding Prospect Player has abilities to create mismatches versus most opponents in the NFL. A feature player that has an impact on the outcome of the game. Cannot be shut down by a single player and plays on a consistent level. Rates in the top 10 at his position. A second round prospect.

70-79 Solid Prospect A standout at the college level close to being an elite player. No glaring weaknesses, will usually win individual matchups, does not dominate in every game, especially against the top players in the country. Usually rates in the top third of players at his position. A third round draft prospect.

60-69 Good Prospect A solid starter, but is overmatched versus the better players in the nation. His weaknesses will be exposed against top competition. Usually a prospect that is missing something from his game (e.g. good size and skills, lacks speed). Usually rates in the top half of the players at his position. A middle round draft choice.

50-59 Adequate Prospect Usually players that play at a high level in college, but lack some measurables or skills to play at that same level in the NFL. May be a developmental player or special teams/situational contributor. Usually rates in the second-third at his position. A fifth round draft choice.

20-49 Borderline Draft Prospect These are players that teams like something about, but certainly do not have the full package in terms of NFL talent. Teams will take chances on character players or developmental type athletes with this grade. These are often players that come from smaller schools or did not stand out at the college level. 'Diamonds in the rough.' Usually rate in the bottom third of players at his position. A late round draft choice or undrafted free agent.
