  • Scott's Draft Board is ranked #4 from the last 3 years

    http://www.thehuddlereport.com/Free/...rankings.shtml


    Some pretty good company here:

    *Note: These scores are the draft boards from the last 3 years compiled into one average*
    1. Rick Gosselin 86.7
    2. The Huddle report 85.3
    3. Pro Football Weekly 84.0
    4. Draft Countdown 82.7
    5. Draft Ace 82.3

    *Other notables*

    13. Mel Kiper Jr 79.7



    Top Draft Boards for 2008:
    1. LionBacker 90
    2. Gil Brandt 88
    3. Rick Gosselin 87
    3. The Huddle Report 87
    5. Pro Football Weekly 86
    6. Draft Countdown 85


    *Notables*

    19. Scouts Inc. 81
    22. Mel Kiper Jr 80
    32. Scout.com 77


    They also hand out scores and grades for the 07 Draft Boards and 06 Draft Boards, not sure how accurate this site is for grading these scores, but I thought it was interesting regardless, it's was also free.


    Scott's done a great job making a name for himself and being ranked higher then sites who have multiple scouts working year round for their results.

    These don't really surprise me, but kudos to Scott for being so good at what he does. Gosselin at #1 kind of intrigues me though.

      I'm just curious, how are the numbers that make up these rankings arrived at. The number one guy is an 86.7 and not an 87 or an 86, why? Anybody know?

        It's an average form the past three years, so it's usually not going to be a whole number.

        I see how they did it:

        Boards are scored by the number of top 100 prospects actually picked in the first 100 picks of Draft

          I think it might be accuracy? Not sure, that's all I can think of that would make it something like 86.7

            Ah, that makes sense, and also explains why the numbers for individual years are all integers, but the 3 year number is not (it's an average).

            I wonder what the methodology for grabbing the mock drafts for consideration are. Ones that are published the morning of the draft are likely going to be more accurate than ones that were published 2 weeks earlier.

            Speaking of which, is Scott going to do one more mock?

              Meh, It's more important that these guys give quality, interesting information and be highly knowledgeable than being super accurate with how players will turn out in the long run. There's too many variables to expect anyone to know how every player will turn out in the long run. Things like injuries, quality of the organization the player goes to, legal issues, how a player will react to getting paid, etc make it so hard to expect anyone to get all their predictions right.

                I'd like to see some statistical analysis done that judges how well the draft sites/gurus actually evaluate the talent.

                Picking the 80-something out of the top 100 or having 9 out of 32 right in a mock draft, IMO, is useless.

                Finding out who evaluates well, now that is the guy I like to follow.

                It is one of the reasons I respect Scott, because he at least has all of his rankings and mocks archived for the world to see. I wish he'd keep around his scouting reports, but I understand that becomes server heavy.

                Plus, when he gets a big head, its always good to bring him down to earth with Michael Bennett + LaMont Jordan > LaDainian Tomlinson

                  It is a wonder he has time to put together such a good board with his love affair with Saved By The Bell taking up most of his time.:)

                      For what it's worth, aren't Scott's rankings more personal opinion of how good he feels prospects are and his mocks are what he thinks will happen? I don't know if it would make much of a different, but I don't think he makes his top 100 prospects to try and actually have that contain the top 100 prospects in the draft.

                        I definitely have my fair share of hits and misses just like everyone else but I've never been afraid to put my record out there.

                          That is correct!

                          My mock draft is for what I think will happen.

                          My rankings are how I personally have my board stacked.

                              Scott, are you updating your rankings before the draft?
