Stars! Ratings! Scouting! Representatives!
The sporting world is filled with ranking systems, scouts and reps telling you who the best players are. Rankings given to prep athletes. These rankings are sometimes given as young as junior high and stay with the athlete while they are growing up. While these rankings and opinions change, there is always going to be an end ranking. A star value given to that player after they leave college to pursue their NFL dreams.
Rivals.com is well known for their in-depth scouting and analysis of high school and college athletes. As stated in the article:
“For the third straight year, OrangeBloods.com publisher Geoff Ketchum found himself logging the entire NFL Draft, pick by pick, with the purpose of better understanding what’s working and what’s not working as it relates to developing players at the collegiate level.”
Geoff, along with many others, are tracking to see trends, and are bringing an answer to the long asked question: “Do 5-stars get drafted more than 2-stars?” Any sports fan will love to see the results!
