ESPN INSIDER: The ESPN NFL Draft Glossary

Myself and Mike Tanier -- a dream team if there ever was one -- have compiled a NFL Draft glossary with I believe about 150 different terms used by scouts and draftniks around the league.

This feature also appears in this week's ESPN the Magazine on pages 44-45, if you don't have an Insider account and would like to read it. The web version has a player defined for each term, while I believe the Magazine version only has about 10 players linked to terms.

wow, I read it in the magazine and hadn't checked names.

It was very well done, nice job... I learned quite a bit.

I'm not an insider and I'm not going to be one.

It's a nice list to put on the wall of your bathroom.

Yeah linking to an ESPN Insider story is the same thing as not linking.
