2020 Round 1 Rookie WRs: Market Share Projections and Win-Now Targets

With the 12th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Las Vegas Raiders selected Henry Ruggs III and got the wide receiver ball rolling. In total, six WRs were drafted. Since 2010, 32 WRs have been drafted in Round 1. Of these 32 pass catchers, 43% (14) managed to score more than 10 points per game (PPG) in their rookie season. This group averaged 13.8 games played, 103 targets, 865 yards, 7 touchdowns, a target share of 18 percent, and 13.8 PPG. This gives us an idea of what we can reasonably expect from a successful rookie campaign.   As…...

Caban’s 2020 RB Prospect Rankings: Strong Chalk and 2 Late Round Targets

The 2020 running back class is anchored by a handful of players that have the skills and profiles necessary to be future stars. If you’re lucky enough to draft one of the first four RBs off the board, odds are you’ll be happy with your selection. Since the combine, we’ve looked at RB speed scores, breakaway rush scores, the 2020 RB Rookie Scouting Index, and player-specific profiles, all of which have informed my final set of pre-draft RB rankings. The exercise of absorbing all of this information, considering its context and meaning, and then actually working through the process of…...

2020 Rookie Scouting Index: Tight End 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…...

Can Salvon Ahmed Transcend an Abysmal Speed Score? A 2020 NFL Draft Prospect Profile

Salvon Ahmed spent three seasons at Washington after entering the program as a 4-star recruit. He ranks outside of the top-15 in the 2020 RB RSI  and will hope to become a Day 3 selection. Ahmed’s profile, from a scouting perspective, includes a number of holes and questions his vision, feel for blocks, and elusiveness. However, Ahmed was involved in his three seasons as a Husky and recorded a 0.60 Backfield Dominator Rating in his junior season. Perhaps this signals that the scouts are missing something that doesn’t present itself on film. College Production Rushing   Seas Age Games RuAtt…...

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…...
