Note: Offensive Line, FB, ILB not included. Points associated with players are to be compared within a position category, NOT between different positions. QB,RB,WR,TE have not changed from previous posts. CB,S,DT,DE,OLB has changed to reflect a 60/40 weighting in favor of productivity vs measurables. (Previously 75/25) Methodology did not change and is explained for each position in previous posts organized at: moneyballer.blogspot.com
It would make sense to make adjustments based on criteria not used (ie. special teams skills for WRs, blocking ability for TEs, injury history) and also qualitative evaluation of character, leadership, work ethic etc.

Hope you like it and keep moneyballin' y'all!

Adding DJ Hayden puts him #1 on CB rankings...

So I just had time to evaluate DJ Hayden, because I started with mocks as of two weeks ago and he wasn't on the list. It's rare to have someone move up that fast and so I didn't think much of putting him in the model, but he rates out at 2.17, just barely beating the Honeybadger for the #1 CB in the list.
