Draft room stories
Check out Greg Garber's look at what goes on in NFL draft rooms:
  • Inside the draft room
  • Working the room
  • In or out? Who's in the room
  • Who's in charge?
  • The Best Draft Ever?
  • His Worst Nightmare
  • The War Room
  • In the sports world, The War Room belongs to Dave Geaslen, the owner of Football Scouts, Inc. Essentially, it's a brand he sells through the Sporting News. Originally, it was the name of the company he started seven years ago, but he couldn't get a trademark.

    "We scout all the football leagues," Geaslen said. "We sell the information to pro team clients, including the NFL, CFL and Arena Football, too. We also do work for ESPN, CBS and NBC. I've got a database of 7,000 players. If you were drafted or got a paycheck the last three years, I've got you."
