Every NFL Team's 2017 Draft Needs Based on Analytics
As a writer, I have the luxury of getting to make do-overs to my (and my editors’) heart’s content before the words get published. If something is unclear, it gets addressed, and I send out a new version of the article. The review and drafting process of writing helps to make sure the best content gets out there.
In the NFL Draft, however, teams get just one crack at addressing the holes on their team. There is no do-over, no second chances to get it right.
That’s a lot of pressure.
We can help clarify what teams need to do to get right, however. By using our signature metric, Net Expected Points (NEP), and assessing each team’s strengths and weaknesses over the past year, we can guess which positions each team might seek to address in the Draft.
We’ve arranged these to match the NFL Draft order (excluding traded picks). So, where should teams choose to make rookie revisions this year?
