For amateur scouts and forward-thinking NFL fans alike, it’s time to study up for draft season with the On the Clock NFL Draft Podcast with Chris Burke, a weekly look at the prospects of the 2016 draft and the NFL teams most in need of their services.

On this week’s episode, guest Dan Hatman, the director of scouting development at the Scouting Academy and writer for Insidethepylon.com, discusses the process of NFL scouting—how hard the task can be, how to break into the business and more. Also, Hatman talks about his 10 rules of NFL scouting, inspired by Bleacher Report's Matt Miller's tweet. Finally, Hatman defends his not-so-popular Derrick Henry evaluation. Why does he think the 2015 Heisman winner won't be taken until the third day? Listen below.

If you have any feedback, want us to break down a particular prospect or want to weigh on with your own draft predictions, reach out to Burke on Twitter, and don't forget to subscribe to the On The Clock Podcast on iTunes, on Stitcher or on Soundcloud.
