This spring I enrolled in The Scouting Academy which is a great tool for anyone who wants to learn more about player evaluation or simply understand more about the game of football. If you want to be a future football scout, this is where you need to be. It helped me improve in areas I didn’t know I lacked and has made me a more objective viewer when it comes to watching NFL players. Luckily, one of the players we looked at was Packers newby Za’Darius Smith. I thought you guys might be interested in my evaluation but first here is the basis of what you will be looking at.
