[PFF] Historical draft success for all 32 NFL teams (MERGE)


Recommended Posts

Interesting.  The Eagles are third from the bottom.  HOU is higher than us, and fifth from the top.

 

Tampa Bay is second.  I can't think of anybody they drafted outside of Evans.

All of the value HOU has is from Deshaun Watson. They say in the article that all other picks combined have negative WAR value in their system.

That's a crazy way to rank it.  One player should not skew the results that much.

 

If so, then Kyler Murray must be the reason AZ is the worst, like anybody with any sense thought he should be a number 1 pick in the first place, LOL.

It is, that's why they did the rankings in three separate ways. The first one goes off of player value, so of course Mahomes skyrockets the Chiefs to the top. I thought it was interesting though to see that although we haven't hit any "Mahomes" style home runs, we've been very consistent in drafting quality players. 

 

Also, I gotta agree about Kyler, and I like him a lot.

This is based off of pff rating, and they had him pretty high last year.  I have not followed the rest of their picks closely though.  He had a high QB rating too

Tampa Bay stood out to me.  They are second with no apparent stars that I can recall.  Brady, Gronk, and Suh were FAs.

 

I thought Murray is the classic case of a team riding the trendy hype wave of athleticism in a Qb, when being able to extend a play by running sideways is only a small part of playing the position.

Ok.  Watson and Murray rated high, but the teams' draft prowess are polar opposite.  Something seems to be missing.

Tampa has been low key collecting a great overall team. There's a reason they're the champs, they just needed that lift from the QB. Can they sustain it for next year? There's a pretty good chance.

Arizona's poor WAR is all about the Josh Rosen pick in 2018, not about Kyler at all. I'm surprised Kyler doesn't have a positive impact that outweighs the negative impact of the Rosen pick though. Still, throwing away a top 10 pick on a QB doesn't bode well for a draft ranking ;)

I like Antoine Winfield Jr at FS.  They took him in the second round last spring and he contributed this year.  And their CB (Carlton Davis?) was another recent draft pick that starts in their secondary.  I think he has the length Ballard covets in CBs, but we didn't draft him.  If I'm thinking of the correct corner.

Devin White and Chris Godwin qualify as stars for me. Finding Godwin in round 3 at a position like WR that is very valuable helps a lot I would guess

Why would you be surprised?  

 

I'm the opposite. I'm surprised that Watson puts HOU very high when they have drafted so poorly.

 

The whole thing seems biased to me, trying to tell us we should look at football like we look at the NBA.

I think that's right.  I'm merely saying that I don't know TB's roster well enough.  I'm sure they have drafted well throughout the roster in the past 4 years.  Of course, that's one reason why they beat KC so badly.

Because I think Kyler could be the real deal if the Cardinals find 1 or 2 competent linemen ^^

Yeah, their whole secondary is made out of drafted players. Plus some OL starters + Vita Vea + Godwin ... They pretty much fielded 10 starters in the Superbowl that were drafted by them in the last 4 years. Godwin alone is probably more valuable than both Leonard and Q

Not me.   I think he will be a very good QB and for the most part he is already.    

But he was the #1 pick in the draft.   He's got a career record of 13-18-1.  Career rating of 90.9.  In 2020 he was 18th in the league in QB rating.  (I won't pretend I think QB rating accurately tells us how good a QB is.   It's just another number to bundle with others.  He hasn't led his team to a winning record in either of his seasons.  

Josh Rosen was a top 10 pic in the draft and I think he may be on the 49rs practice squad.

Yeah, Carlton Davis was the corner I was thing of.  I remember him from mock drafts that year.

 

We drafted Turay at 52 and then Lewis at 64, right behind Davis.

If that's the case, throw these graphs in the garbage bin.

 

A guy who has (1) 1,000yd season and (0) 10td seasons, in 4 years, is more valuable than 2 multi time All Pros combined.

WRs are more valuable than guards and LBs. I was speculating about the numbers here because I don't know for sure . If someone has access to their stats, please share them. I wouldn't be surprised though. Godwin ranks very highly in their grading on which the WAR metric is partially based on so... They wrote in the article above that even though Q has been better player at his position he's bringing about the same value as Calvin Ridley who's not been as good as him but plays the more valuable position.  Calvin Ridley is ranked lower than Godwin by PFF.

I was talking in their system. I was adding to Zoltan responding to someone wondering why Tampa Bay is ranked so high(higher than the Colts). This is the reason. Drafted players at valuable positions performing well.

Valuable position? What does it really mean?

 

Just going to throw this out there.

 

Godwin 4yr avg season stats:

61rec 880yds 6tds

 

TY Hilton 2020 stats:(down year)

56rec 762yds 5tds

 

Valuable position vs replaceable player

 

I would be more inclined to say it is way easier to find a WR to put up these very average numbers that Godwin has put up over the first 4 years of his career,(which is what your graphs show 4 years) than it is to find an All Pro Guard and All Pro LBer, let alone them combined.

 

27 WR's had that many yards or more this year, than Godwin avg season.

36 WR's had that many receptions or more this year, than Godwin avg season.

 

So you tell me who is more valuable/replaceable?

 

I actually liked your graphs but the statement that Godwin is more valuable than Q and DL combined is not a good one, and if that is what the graphs indicate, then it takes all the validity out of them.

 

And to be fair I like Godwin, but that statement you made, as NCF said, is just several bridges to far from reality.

Look...   I like Godman...   I really do.   But I looked him up this morning to double check.   In his 4 years with TB, he has one 1,000 yard season.  One.   And it wasn’t even this year.  His two other good seasons were both 840 yards.  
 

Does any of that sound like a guy who is more valuable than Leonard and Q....   together?!?   
Goodness, I don’t think he’s more valuable than either alone.   Certainly not together. 
 

Im impressed that Tampa has hit in such a large number of draft picks these last few days.   I’m even more impressed that guys like Fournette and Brown go there and buy-in.  Props to everyone at TB. 
 

I just think in your enthusiasm to say just how good Godwin is,  I think you went overboard to make a point.   That’s all....

It means it correlates better to winning/losing. Good players to winning, bad players to losing.

Irrelevant. Also, those are surface level stats, they don't tell you whether a player played well or bad.

It's obvious that you it's harder to find all pro guard than a Godwin type receiver. There are only 4 guards every year with that accomplishment and at least about 10WRs with Godwin's season. This is NOT what valuable mean. It means what Godwin is giving you is more valuable for winning than what Nelson gives you.

They are not my graphs, they are PFF graphs. I'm not sure Q+DL combined are less valuable in their metric than Godwin, but I wouldn't be surprised if they are. Each of them individually I'm almost certain is less valuable in their metric than Godwin. I mean... it either is true or it's not. I made the qualifier of "probably" simply because I don't have the exact numbers, but if I had to guess in their metric Godwin is quite a bit more valuable than Q and DL individually and very possibly more valuable than them combined.

It doesn't matter what I think and my post was not about what I think. It was about what PFF's numbers likely are saying. You are doing the same thing w87r is doing with the raw numbers. They don't tell you the story of how good/valuable the player has been in PFF's system. Their grades and WAR derived from the grades should tell you whether he's more or less valuable. 

 

If you asked me whether I would trade DL+Q for Godwin my answer would be HELL NO. Now if you ask if I would trade one of them for Godwin... that might be worth a discussion.

I’ve now seen this other post of yours  and thought I’d share some thoughts. 
 

If someone wanted to claim that Godman is better than Q or better than Leonard, I think that’s a debate you can have.   I personally wouldn’t be on that side, but you could have the debate.   
 

But once you made it Godwin better than Leonard AND Q, I think the debate was over before it started.  I think you’re giving too deep of a discount to the WILL and the LG, and giving too much value to WR.   
 

There’s only one Quenton Nelson.   There’s one of a small handful of Leonard’s, maybe 5?   But aren’t there dozens of very good receivers all over the NFL?   Dozens.  And if there are,  doesn’t that pretty much end the debate we're having?    That’s how this strikes me.

Sometimes you have to go off your own knowledge and eye test and not go by any metric system or PFF, etc.. There is no way in hell I would trade Q or Leonard straight up for Godwin. Godwin is good but Q and Leonard are great at their respective positions.

Back to this. I would like to see this in a thread with a poll.

 

 

Can't imagine too many people would take this stand. Would be intriguing to see though, no doubt.

 

 

Almost as bad as the argument that Godwin is "possibly" more valuable than both of them combined. I don't think there is a WR in the league I would trade for either of them, let alone Godwin.

I've never really taken PFF rankings as the final say or anything, I enjoy looking at their ranking, but if this is their conclusion(Godwin is more valuable), then I will probably just not pay much attention to them anymore.

Why is that? Is it because it goes against your team/favorite players or because you have a good argument against it? OK let me put it like this. 

 

Forget about Q or DL. Lets divorce this from the Colts. What do you think are the most valuable positions in football? You can have players of the exact same quality at their own position, rank them by which ones you would take in a draft. 

 

I don't get why it's so hard to admit that WR is more valuable position than LB or G. This should be pretty non-controversial IMO. It doesn't mean the best guards or LBs in the league are garbage. They are awesome and DL and Q are awesome. The question is - how valuable are they? Compared to similarly ranked players of different positions? Or even slightly worse players at different more valuable positions? 

 

Lets say Q is the best guard in the league. Would you take him over Aaron Donald(the best DT in the league)? Would you take him over Mahomes(best QB in the league)? Would you take him over Khalil Mack(Nick Bosa, TJ Watt... whoever you consider best EDGE)? Would you take him over Devante Adams(or whoever you consider best WR in the leauge)? Ronnie Stanley(or whoever you think is best LT in the league)? etc...

 

For the record: I would take every single one of them over Q. And I love Q and I think he's amazing and the best thing that has happened to this franchise in the last 5 years... maybe more... maybe since drafting Luck...

QB, LT, DE, DT, CB

 

Really depends on system after QB, LT, DE

 

WR is really low on the list. Ballard clearly seems to think this as well, as he seems to "value" the trenches way more than skill positions.

 

To me, value is placed on how easy it is to replace you. There are so many above average to good WRs(where I would put Godwin), there are so few All Pro Guards and LBs. In other words, Godwin is easier to replace, Nelson and Leonard, not so much. So in my opinion that makes them more valuable.

 

 

After those first 5 positions(3) listed above, I don't think there is much difference in positional breakdown, have to look at individual players impact on the game after that, despite position.

Ask the Ravens how important Ray Lewis was for them. I imagine they would say he was more valuable than anyone else on that team. Far more than Qadry Ismail.

 

The Colts had a ragtag squad of WRs, still went 11-5. It wasn't because our receivers were so valuable.

Why you're the one that brought them in the discussion, by saying Godwin is "probably" more valuable than both combined and that you would entertain the discussion on trading one of them for Godwin. :dunno:

 

 

 

EDIT: And it's a shame that, what I thought was a good thread, turned to something else after the bad take on Godwin vs Q/DL.

The problem with this post is, you named the best players at their positions to prove your point. Of course I would trade Q for Mahomes lol or maybe the best WR in the league. You posted earlier it could be a discussion to trade Q or Leonard for Godwin. No way nobody would do that.

Really depends on system after QB, LT, DE

 

WR is really low on the list. Ballard clearly seems to think this as well, as he seems to "value" the trenches way more than skill positions.

 

To me, value is placed on how easy it is to replace you. There are so many above average to good WRs(where I would put Godwin), there are so few All Pro Guards and LBs. In other words, Godwin is easier to replace, Nelson and Leonard, not so much. So in my opinion that makes them more valuable.

 

 

After those first 5 positions(3) listed above, I don't think there is much difference in positional breakdown, have to look at individual players impact on the game after that, despite position.

 

 

 

Ask the Ravens how important Ray Lewis was for them. I imagine they would say he was more valuable than anyone else on that team. Far more than Qadry Ismail.

 

The Colts had a ragtag squad of WRs, still went 11-5. It wasn't because our receivers were so valuable.

 

Why you're the one that brought them in the discussion, by saying Godwin is "probably" more valuable than both combined and that you would entertain the discussion on trading one of them for Godwin. :dunno:

 

 

 

EDIT: And it's a shame that, what I thought was a good thread, turned to something else after the bad take on Godwin vs Q/DL.

I would say QB. DE, and LT but between DE and LT it is a toss up. So we pretty much agree. Every once in a while you have a player like Q that comes along though and is just as valuable to your team than any player. Like you said about Ray Lewis, would anyone trade Ray Lewis for today's best WR, I wouldn't.

Let's just say I disagree, and I would put WR firmly somewhere among those other positions you listed after QB. Very possibly at no. 2 too.

Yes, in PFF's system and it was me expanding on a response to someone wondering why Tampa bay is ranked this high and above us. This was part of my answer.

It's not a "bad take". It was a guess about how PFFs WAR values them in order to rank Tampa bay over the Colts..

The problem with this post is, you named the best players at their positions to prove your point. Of course I would trade Q for Mahomes lol or maybe the best WR in the league. You posted earlier it could be a discussion to trade Q or Leonard for Godwin. No way anyone would do that. 

fixed it for you. No way nobody would do that, means somebody would. :peek:

 

 

Anyway, like I listed above, I wouldn't trade Q for any WR in the league. 

 

Mahomes - clearly

Donald - no because we have Buckner, if not, yes

Mack or LT? That would be worth a discussion at least.

Yeah I meant anyone haha but we agree. Also I agree because we have Buck, I would not trade Nelson for Donald.

    • I don't know how much that is true. Look at Zach Wilson for example. Did you see him going second to the Jets before his pro day or Mac Jones third to the 49ers?
    • So i was doing some checking and the last time the eagles played us at home was back in 2014 which means Carson Wentz never played inside Lucas Oil before so i know he's probably going to be really excited when he steps inside the stadium for the first time to play. (minus the combine) that being said i wonder if he will put up very big numbers due to him being inside a dome? i really hope so
    • Everyone loves Phillips.   The problem is he has a history of concussions, at least three that we know of.   He actually retired from college football back when he was at UCLA.  He transferred to Miami and started playing again.   Enjoyed a really good year, but scouts get somewhat skeptical over one good year.    It’s entirely possible Phillips will have enough red flags that he’ll be removed from the big boards for a number of teams.  There’s just no way to know until we see where he goes. 
    • I traded 21 to Buffalo for 30 and 93   30 Tevin Jenkins  OT 54 Payton Turner DE 93 Trill Williams CB 127 Dazz Newsome WR  165 Tre McKitty TE   I only did 5 Rounds 
    • You may be right, but I’ve never seen that before.   I’ve always read pay begins with the regular season.
