Optimum Scouting Department

Optimum Scouting, LLC is a third party scouting service that works with professional teams, leagues, and others in the professional football area to aid in their prospect research and evaluation. Our scouting staff is comprised of trained, experienced scouts across the country.

Optimum Scouting, LLC was founded seven years ago by myself (Eric Galko) and has grown substantially since then.

While at first we were a mainly NFL Draft prospects scouting service, our reports reached professional teams and other football professionals, as we were asked to do more in-depth reports on non-NFL prospects as well. Since then, we have worked as a consultant with CFL and AFL teams, provided reports for NFL teams, lead scouting efforts for College All-Star games, and consulting on other football-related fronts while also providing unique and in-depth scouting for OptimumScouting.com in the form of articles, scouting reports, NFL Draft Guides, and much more.

Most recently, Optimum Scouting LLC has the 4th Annual HBCU All-Star Bowl Game and the 2nd annual BSN Collegiate Showcase as clients for the 2012-2013 season, as well as formed a digital partnership with Sporting News as their exclusive NFL Draft coverage provider.

Any questions about Optimum Scouting, radio appearence requests, scouting requests, concerns about OptimumScouting.com or any quetsions, please feel free to email me personally at EricG@OptimumScouting.com

Our Scouting Services

The services Optimum Scouting provides for select clients are below. These are the base services that we can provide, but are not limited to this, and we do take requests for unique scouting jobs and other ideas to make our services work for you.

Database Updates are compiled of all FBS and FCS juniors and seniors as well as Division II and Division III seniors. It is categorized and sortable by Name, College, State, Height, Weight, Grade and Projected Round. It also includes Notes on Prospects, which is updated throughout the year.

Prospect Updates are to ensure that you have the ability to see how prospects are progressing throughout their season.

Post-Season Updates include all-star game practice and game reports, news and notes, Pro Day workout news and notes, our 2012 NFL Draft Guide with over 300 In-Depth Scouting reports, and a post-draft database that removes drafted prospects, re-ranks undrafted prospects, and updates 2013 prospects.

Individual Prospect Evaluations are in-depth scouting reports that are done after extensive film scouting that cover all aspects of a prospects mental, physical, and on the field skill.

I personally handle the organization of any updates and information presented to you.  Also, I personally handle many of the individual scouting reports, and if I am unable to, one of our trained scouts in the area will handle the report. I can guarantee that you will find our services more than what you may need, and you will be more than happy with all that you are provided with our service.

There is not another 3rd party scouting service that works as hard as us and provides as much information as we do. If you ever have any questions, comments, requests, or concerns, please don’t hesitate to email at any time at EricG@OptimumScouting.com or use the Contact Us page.
