Frank Cooney's 2022 NFL Draft Scout Top 100 Ratings

  An innovative pioneer in online sports journalism, video games and television, Frank Cooney is a 30-year member of the prestigious Pro Football Hall of Fam selection committee. He is in the seventh decade of professional journalism tracking back to his 1965 start with the Hearst Corporation's San Francisco Examiner, where he was an award-winning columnist and football writer.

His career includes numerous startups, including The Sports Xchange and NFLDraftScout.com, which provided content and analysis for NFL.com, USA Today, CBS Sports, FOX Sports and others. That content generated 16.8 million page views in a month. In the 1980s, Cooney was on the creative team at Electronic Arts that devised the underlying rating system for Madden Football, the most successful franchise in sports video game history. That rating system has continued to be used in virtually every sports video game. He was also part of the original launch team for FOX Sports in 1994.
