Player Development – The NFL Draft & Recruiting

By  | 

It is easy to look at the numbers and see that the many recruiting services do a solid job in evaluating total talent.  From 2002-2008 the top 25 teams with the best average recruiting rank occupy 21 of the top 25 slots for most NFL draft picks from 2005-2011.  But in the Matrix, it’s not what is easily seen that is of most interest to me.  What about those 4 teams in the top 25 of draft picks that didn’t recruit well and those that did but failed to get players drafted like their peers?  Good coaching, systemic problems in an entire athletic department or just blind luck?  You decide so..  Click here to read another CFBMatrix original profile

    I was thinking Ole Miss would be a good bet vs Texas but the line has moved 3 points the wrong way. What do you think?

      I just don’t trust Mack Brown’s coaching and talent. The gap in talent from Texas to Ole Miss is huge. MB is too unstable for me to want to bet for or against any line on the Horns until I see more consistent play from Texas. – Dave
