2020 Rookie Scouting Index: Wide Receiver Rankings

Each year, in the run-up to the NFL draft, we produce the RotoViz Scouting Index (RSI). The RSI aggregates and compiles NFL prospect rankings from a variety of more traditional scouting outlets. This accomplishes a few things: It saves time. No need to check rankings on several sites, we’ve done the work. It reveals the general consensus. No need to guess which players are held in high – or rising – esteem, we’ve done the math. It checks our bias. We do love statistical analysis, but it’s important to consider what the more traditional football community thinks about a given player. The consensus opinion is

2020 WR Prospects: Targets, Catch Rates, and Target Market Shares

Scouting reports are a quick way to get a sense of a player’s characteristics, what he does well, where he struggles, and the things that NFL teams are likely to assume he needs to work on. Of course, that doesn’t mean that everything we read in a scouting report is accurate. There are certain traits, such as route running ability, that are hard to quantify and therefore confirm. However, we can get a sense of a player’s ability to catch the ball by reviewing his reception percentage. If a player successfully converts more than 75% of targets into receptions it

2020 NFL Draft Prospect Age Database

At RotoViz, we like our NFL Draft Prospects to be precocious — producing early and at a young age. As a result, age is an important part of our prospect evaluation process. Of course, collecting every prospect’s date of birth and calculating their age can be a time-consuming endeavor. To make things easier for our readers, we’ve annually published a Draft Prospect Age Database. 2020’s database can be found below. Final Collegiate Age refers to each player’s age at the end of his final collegiate season and is calculated by determining the number of days passing between his date of

2020 Breakaway Rush Scores: Why You Shouldn’t Sleep on Ke’Shawn Vaughn

Nothing tilts a fantasy matchup as quickly as one of your starting running backs breaking off a long touchdown run. And little matches the excitement of a new class of elite RBs joining the NFL. Dave Caban combines the best of both worlds as he presents Breakaway Rush Scores for the 2020 RB class. I’ve always wondered if a correlation exists between NCAA breakaway rush ability and NFL success. Does having the ability to explode down the field for 20, 30, 40 or more yards signal talent, burst, explosion or any other abilities? Having gathered breakaway rush data from 2014

Can Denzel Mims Translate Stellar Athleticism Into NFL Success? A 2020 NFL Draft Prospect Profile

Denzel Mims turned in a fantastic performance at the 2020 NFL combine. Besides displaying better than 50th percentile agility and explosion that eclipsed the 75th percentile, Mims ran the forty-yard dash at a 93rd percentile time of 4.38 seconds. The former Baylor Bear stands 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 207 pounds. This translates to a freak score of 73, well above the 75th percentile.1 Of course, athleticism only tells half of the story and in no way guarantees NFL success. From the Beginning Mims played high school ball in Texas and drew interest from Baylor, Texas Tech, Texas A&M,

Jonathan Taylor and A.J. Dillon Are Rare Size-Speed Specimens: 2020 RB Speed Scores

C.J. Spiller ran the forty-yard dash in 4.27 seconds at the 2010 NFL combine. This is one of the fastest times ever recorded. Spiller weighed 196 pounds when he achieved this feat. Fast forward to the 2020 combine, in which Jonathan Taylor ran the forty in 4.39 seconds, and one may ask which time is better. Although not as fast as Spiller’s, Taylor’s time might be more impressive. Why? Because he weighed 30 pounds more than Spiller when recording it. Naturally, it’s alluring when a large RB prospect can keep up with his more streamlined counterparts. In 2008, Football Outsiders created
