Rivals.com: NFL Draft- Crunching the Numbers

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!

Rivals.com Top 25 Recruiters

Often hidden in the background, a college’s team lead recruiter can be one of the most important keys to success. With national signing day over and the dust settled from the surprises, Rivals recruiting analyst spent some time looking over the incoming signing classes.

While these classes have been ranked and reviewed exhaustively, Rivals was most interested in what the team’s recruiter was able to do given the teams needs and resources.

“This year the battle for our coveted National Recruiter of the Year title was a good one, with at least four strong candidates making a case. In the           end, Mario Cristobal had the best year for a top program and was easily Alabama‘s top recruiter, while that title was shared at USCFlorida StateTennessee and Clemson. And, for the first time ever, a fired head coach makes the list as a key contributor to an amazing Auburn recruiting class, setting up even more battles between the Tigers and Crimson Tide.”
