Nolan Nawrocki

Senior editor
Pro Football Weekly

Not long after making his first and final tackle for the Illini in the old millennium, the former safety turned linebacker figured out his weight-room numbers were not going to transfer to the field and put his master’s degree to use by walking on at Pro Football Weekly, where he largely became a grunt for PFW’s legendary, one-of-a-kind talent evaluator Joel Buchsbaum. When Buchsbaum unexpectedly passed, Nawrocki slowly began morphing into his diminutive predecessor, not only authoring three draft publications each year, but watching a 400-pound bench press shrivel as he spends the majority of his time evaluating college and pro talent, working the phones tirelessly to gather information and chasing his three young kids. Instead of Buchsbaum’s nasally Brooklyn accent, however, the native South Side Chicagoan could be confused with an extra in “The Untouchables” on the airwaves, serving as a senior editor and NFL insider for PFW. He is also one of 51 voters for the Butkus Award.
