Everyone loves a bargain, and when the NFL Draft arrives every team will be looking for the next big steal. One way of finding a draft day steal is by selecting a prospect purely based off of potential. This is a word that is passed around often towards players that do not have much experience. In today’s NFL we are seeing more and more guys like Ezekiel Ansah, Jimmy Graham, and Margus Hunt being selected higher based largely on their athletic ability and the high ceiling that they possess. When evaluating Brent Urban, it is important to focus on what he will become and not what he is. (more…)


Recent Risers and their Merits

Once all the information and misinformation gets sorted out, there are always prospects who are truly raising their draft stock.  Despite the consternation towards the actual existence of draft stock, it probably is a real thing.  Gauging it is something else entirely.

But why does it exist?  Recency bias towards new information that is gleaned from the combine, pro days, medical examinations, and interviews plays a big part.  It’s up to the masses to decipher whether or not too much of an emphasis is being put on new information.  Sometimes, new information isn’t new at all but reinfornces things that should have already been known.

Size is one of the few elements that cannot be coached up, so when a prospect has the perfect frame, scouts tend to salivate. This is especially true if that prospect plays wide receiver when size can cause huge mismatches. A few inches can influence the passing game immensely and that will play a huge role in Lucas’ draft stock. (more…)
