Kevin Cole (@colekev), Director of Data and Analytics at RotoGrinders and proprietor of Predictive Football, talks with Mike Renner from Pro Football Focus on the company’s draft process. You can follow Mike on Twitter @PFF_Mike.
Mike and Kevin talk about how PFF brings together film, scouting, advanced metrics and quantitative research to form an ordered ranking of prospects.
Mike explains why EDGE pressure is more valuable than interior pressure and how certain production is more translatable to the NFL.
In the WWSD segment, Mike talks about why tight ends shouldn’t be drafted in the first round and why concentration drops aren’t as much of a negative as receivers who have poor tracking and positioning.
