Previously the founder of NFL Draft UK, Si has been covering the NFL Draft since 2009. He is now our head of College Football and NFL Draft content after fully migrating over to The Touchdown in July 2019. He has created reports for more than 1,000 NFL Draft prospects, from #1 overall pick Matthew Stafford in 2009 to Mr. Irrelevant Tae Crowder last year. He has one semester of experience enrolling with The Scouting Academy, and spent some time in 2021 as an area scout for the All-22 Global Scouting Network. Simon played one year as a linebacker for The Manchester Titans before quickly learning he was better watching from the sidelines…
Based in Manchester, Si is also the co-creator and weekly guest on the Collapsing Pocket Podcast, which you can find on twitter @PocketCrumble. He began watching the NFL in 2001 but it wasn’t until Antonio Cromartie’s hat-trick of interceptions against Peyton Manning back in 2007 that he became a fan of The Chargers.
When not talking football Si can be found selling Craft Beer all around the world for Wander Beyond Brewing. He lives with his wife Siobhan and little pugs Captain & Clive. Hit him up on twitter @NFLDraftSi for ramblings on any of the subjects above!
