NFL Combine Analysis

Dennis Nguyen, Brett Lambert


The National Football League (NFL) is one of the largest professional sports organizations in the United States. Currently, there are 32 NFL teams and each year, each attempting to maximize performance to win the Super Bowl. Because of this, the annual NFL draft is highly anticipated as it allows teams to select players eligible to leave college football in the hopes of adding talented, young individuals on team-friendly (cheap) contracts. However, there is a great deal of uncertainty in predicting professional performance.​

We modeled some of the variation in prospect success as well as draft position by using eight statistics from the NFL combine.​
We additionally explored the relationship between draft position and player performance and found the relative value of various player positions at different draft positions.
