Dee Ford heading into rSr season: A closer look at the Chiefs' picks: Round 1/23 - Dee Ford, OLB, 6-2, 252, Auburn...Last season, the Chiefs were sixth in the NFL in sacks (47), but in their six losses in the regular season and playoffs, they had just six. They lost twice to Denver, San Diego and Indianapolis, and when quarterbacks like Peyton Manning and Phillip Rivers are one-fourth of the schedule, the more productive pass rushers the merrier. Ford was the second-rated pass rusher on the Chiefs board based on his explosive first step. With starting outside linebacker Tamba Hali sitting with just two more seasons on his contract, his replacement is now in place. - The Sports Xchange

Number of Players NFL Draft Scout is currently tracking: (Player Tracking) - Players are rated and updated throughout the season. Those with a "99" or "999" are currently listed but UNRATED. The top % of these players have extensive scouting reports created, official NFL draft biographies by Dave Te' Thomas prepared (full versions only available here at Draft Scout), combine & pro day workout results posted, media interviews & more included in their profile during the senior season.

NFLDraftScout.com uses the best verifiable 40-yard time for each player. There is no single, official 40-yard time for any player, even those who run at the Indianapolis Combine. Those players who participate in the 40 yards at the Combine actually run twice and on each run they are timed by two hand-held stopwatches and one electronic timer (that is actually initiated by hand on the player's first movement). Combine data includes all six of those times for each player, but no single official time. Team scouts and coaches have various approaches for getting the 40 time they use from those six timings. Some use averages. Some throw out slowest and fastest and then average the rest. In deference to each player, NFLDraftScout.com attempts to use the best verifiable time that seems appropriate for each player. That is the 40 time we post.
