I love looking at stats...
Give me the right stats and info, and I don't need to know anything else to know how good of a football player someone is...I don't even need to watch film. I don't need to know how tall the player is.. how many bench press reps he can do.. the size of his hands... 40yd dash numbers... most conventional combine stats are unnecessary.
For you draft fanatics, what statistics do you wish you had that aren't commonly available?
Here's a few that come to mind:
For O-line: sacks allowed (also holding penalties and false starts)
For defensive backs: receiving yards allowed, receiving TDs allowed, (also pass interference penalties)
Here is a neat statistic I came across online - Adjusted Comeback Efficiency:
This also reminds of the reason former Giant GM Ernie Accorsi bet the farm on Eli Manning on the notion that Eli Manning had special intangibles and is a clutch performer after watching him at Ole Miss.
The Ernie Accorsi Theory
Even these intangibles can be captured in a statistic.
(I'm not saying film is unnecessary. You want all the advantages you can get. However I think following the right statistics is the foundation of finding the best players in the draft.)
Any statistics you think should be tracked? Any unconventional ones?
