Getting the job done
Production is sometimes hard to evaluate for defensive players. for the EDGE prospects, sacks alone cannot give you enough of a picture to make an evaluation on.
This mountain of data looks at what what the EDGE prospects did with their opportunities, within their defenses scheme, over their career in college. The base shows how often they made tackles. The second layer displays the rate they were able to make plays for negative yardage. As icing, the peak layer illuminates their ability to create turnovers.
The hidden gold of the 3rd day
The later rounds offer some developmental prospects that have enough strength in one area to make them compelling projects that could pay off down the line. Cowser, Ochi and Vigil all offer something to build a pass rusher on. As investment in the future, they could pay off two years downtime line in Kansas City.
The Big Board
That brings us to the culmination of the 2016 edition of Draft Science. The athletic matrix evaluations you’ve seen throughout this series are a critical influence on my board, but not the only or laggiest influence. My film notes/grades are just as important. Whether they proved they can produce is plays an important role in my overall evaluations, as do physical maturity, received learning potential and coachability. In the end, this is who I see these board and how these players fit the Kansas City Chiefs.
Here’s is my 2016 Draft board.
