Default Moneyball

I'm reading the book "Moneyball" and I'm sure many of you have read the book or at least seen the film.

I'm wondering if there are any parallels between MLB scouting fallacies and NFL scouting fallacies.

In the book, the A's GM realizes that batting average and fielding ability is dramatically overvalued and that on-base percentage and walks are dramatically undervalued.

Has there been any study into football statistics?
Is bench press overvalued and yards after contact undervalued in a RB?
Is there an over emphasis on height with QBs?
How overvalued is the 40 time vs. agility drills?
