NFL Draft Scouts Top 32 Picks

National Football League (or NFL) scouts evaluate the talent of high school and college football players. They are responsible for identifying players that have the potential to succeed in the NFL. Working as an NFL scout allows you to work closely with the game of football and the players, but without having to play the game. But the odds are stacked against you – pro teams employ about 7-10 full-time scouts. That adds up to about 224-320 league-wide. You’ll need a demonstrated combination of management and organizational skills, a deep knowledge of the game, an instinct for identifying talent, passion and persistence, and networking acumen. There is no guaranteed path to becoming an NFL scout, but you can develop and demonstrate the skills that NFL organizations value.
