From Dave-Te To Those Trying To Reach Me

Folks - favor
Unless I ask, do not email me at NFL Scouting or at Scouting Services. I will answer all here. The staff is in major crunch time & I ask you respect my wishes. Those that sent a ton of emails to NFL Scouting this AM, sorry, but the staff deleted them.
I think I did okay yesterday getting to your Qs on the thread & will do so again tonight after I finish working out the Wyoming guys. Cool?
Awesome work by you

I was afraid that would happen when you put your email out there. I hope people will listen.

How do you feel about snail mail or in-person questions?

If the mods come across the responses where Dave put his email in the posts, then hopefully they take the discretion of deleting the individual responses so the entire threads do not have to be deleted.

right before the draft you're right the timing is terrible... didn't know it was up in a thread. You're a great guy going out of your way to help educate us, thank you.
Dave, thanks for all you do!

As an aside, do teams actually read all 200 or so pages of your reports, or do they move quickly to sections that address their specific concerns?

I'm curious because I know that when I do a psychological/forensic evaluation for the courts, my summary page(s) better hit on all my key points because some of the other stuff may never be read.

...thanks so much for all your fantastic insights!

For an old draft dog like myself, this is like opening Christmas gifts all day long!

I usually ask specific people to email me at scoutingservices when their question requires that I send them charts or tables, as I'm not computer savvy to get them in a post & too old dog to learn.
But, this AM, 29 messages came over the NFL Scouting & I never give that address out to the public, as it is reserved for teams & specified media.
I prefer answering on the Big Blue site, no email (unless asked), no snail mail, no air mail, just here.
I just hope folks understand, the scout calendar begins in early March. I did not come back in until December this year, so, rather than play 2017 catchup nationwide (scouted on the west coast), I have been on the road since March 3 at spring drills & games, getting a jump on the 2018 draft stock.
Still, with my staff going year round, I have an excellent group to handle everything - I just like to evaluate & see players on my own.
About the reports' size  
nflscouting : 4/18/2017 6:45 pm : link
Yes, they read every inch & one a few ocassions, even ask for more. Maybe one day, I will get a sponsor & kick up a scouting site, not draft site, where I can take all through the steps of what I use as my formula for scouting over my 50 years of doing this.
GO CHECK OUT THE DAWKINS REPORT-scroll down & you will get an idea of what goes into a game analysis alone
Fantastic, Dave!

Let me know if you need me to resend the log in to my analytics platform I sent over this morning

Podcast is an excellent idea. Fascinating times, with Colin, Sylvia and Dave providing us all great information.

Have a good day!
