2014 NFL Draft - One Year in...
« on: July 10, 2015, 07:28:24 PM »
While it takes at least 3 years to evaluate a draft, here are last year's teams collective draftee ratings one year out of the gate based on PFR's ratings.  Pro Football Reference ratings are subject to some debate -- they tend to give high value not only for performance but also for games played/started.  Methodology details here ( http://www.sports-reference.com/blog/approximate-value-methodology/). 

The 1st column gives the average 'Pro Football Reference' score for all that team's draft picks (higher number is better). 

The 3rd column gives that team's draft position. 

As you'll see, only three teams with a lower draft position (Cin, Indy, and Carolina) had higher player averages than the Packers.

DaveKenya.  It looks like you tried to add something to this post and also to your post  'Fortune Telling 101".

Unfortunately whatever you tried to add cannot be seen (at least by me).
