2017 Midpoint Quarterback Performances.

Here is a midpoint review of 2017 FBS quarterback performances.

A general guide for the terms is here.

Based on 10 year sample sizes that are then combined and compared to all of the performances since 1958. 90+ score is excellent chance of becoming a All-Pro quarterback. 80+ or higher is a good shot at Pro Bowl potential. With 50+ being more for starter potential. And anyone less than 50 is a long shot to be a starter let alone a multiple All-Pro or Pro Bowl player based on the data since 1958.

2016 as a reference.

And a faster reference is here for some of the top 2018 QB prospects is here.

Many quarterbacks got worse with a few making great improvement. We still have another half of CFB to improve these numbers. However, this lines up with the consensus by the draft community that the quarterback class has regressed from where many thought it would be preseason.

Midseason Offensive and Defensive Market Share Data Collection

Here is a spreadsheet with offensive and defensive market share of 2017 CFB players at the midseason point 2018 Prebowl stats. I did a quick color code to give you an idea of what the production means potential wise. However, there are numerous other variables that are not accounted for yet like SOS, athleticism and age. This is purely production, but it should highlight players that are performing well so you can check them out to see if the film lines up with the data. I’d use the analogy that if a player hits a All-Pro potential mark, it means the same as if a DE runs a 4.5.

It doesn’t mean that DE is destined to become elite, or even good. But since most of the great DEs usually run 4.5, it’d be a good idea to at least give that player a look. There are over 4,000+ players in this defensive data set alone. So the ability to filter that 4,000+ list to less than 300 is the point of analytics.  So I hope you enjoy the spreadsheet, and if you have any questions feel free to leave a comment or tweet at me @Jimetrics .

New York Jets vs. Cleveland Browns NFL Week 5 Analytics Preview

Welcome to another week of NFL football. Now let’s get to who the data favors between the New York Jets and Cleveland Browns based on analytics.

And if you are new to the site, a glossary of terms are here.

Overall Basic Data Favors: New York Jets

Overall Completion Data Favors: New York Jets Defense

Overall Completion Percentage Data Favors: New York Jets Offense

Rushing First-Down Conversion Rate Data Favors: New York Jets Defense

Rushing First-Down Conversion Rate Data Favors: Cleveland Browns Defense

Passing First-Down Conversion Rate Data Favors: New York Jets Defense

Passing First-Down Conversion Rate Data Favors: New York Jets Offense

Sack Rate Data Favors: New York Jets Defense heavily on 2nd Down

Sack Rate Data Favors: Cleveland Browns Defense

Interception Rate Data Favors: New York Jets Defense

Interception Rate Data Favors: New York Jets Offense, except for 3rd Down disparity

Overall Impressions: Unless the Cleveland Browns drastically improve their offense and defense, it’s a clear Jet victory. There is plenty of blame to go around for the Browns’ offense, but you can not continue to play this way and expect to win football games. The advice I’d give is to lean on the parts of the offense that work the best in creating first-downs in the run game. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. If the Browns think airing it out will lead to victories, then the sacks and interceptions will continue to beat this team’s chances for any type of victory for the foreseeable future. 

 

San Francisco 49ers vs. Indianapolis Colts NFL Week 5 Analytics Preview

Welcome to NFL Week 5. Now let’s get to who the data favors in the San Francisco 49ers vs. Indianapolis Colts matchup.

And if you are new to my work a glossary of terms can be found here.

Overall NFL Data Favors: Colts due to defensive strengths.

Overall Completion Data Favors: Colts Offense 

Overall Completion Data Favors: 49ers Defense. 

Overall Rushing First-Down Conversion Rate Data Favors: 49ers defense except for massive disparity on 3rd Down.

Overall Rushing First-Down Conversion Rate Data Favors: Colts Defense

Overall Passing First-Down Conversion Rate Data Favors: 49ers Defense 

Overall Passing First-Down Conversion Rate Data Favors: Colts Defense

Sack Rate Data Favors: 49ers Defense

Sack Rate Data Favors: 49ers Offense

Interception Rate Data Favors: 49ers Defense, but there is a decent disparity on 2nd Down favoring Colts.

Interception Rate Data Favors: Colts Defense massively

Overall Impression: The data favors the Colts, but there is not a massive difference between these two teams. This is a winnable game for the 49ers. However, the Colts’ defense has shown to be at least average. And the ability to create interceptions that can change the tide of games is high for the Colts as well. Thus I’d side with a victory for the Colts.

The All-QB NFL Mock Draft

The All-Quarterback mock is a NFL mock draft created entirely of quarterback prospects. The draft selection rankings are based on an extremely confusing and arbitrary set of Pythagorean theorems with heavy emphasis on the illuminati. If you are confused and don’t have a clue about what I just said. Then you are not prepared for this mock. If you think I should just call this a ranking versus a mock, then you are a communist and capitalist cuck who doesn’t deserve an explanation. This is the All-Quarterback mock.

San Francisco 49ers Select: Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma
That’s right, Make America Dougie Again! And Katy Perry should allow this very short man to score in the paint.

Indianapolis Colts Select: Lamar Jackson, WR/QB, Louisville
I know he’s never played quarterback in his entire football career, but my subconscious. And my very biased fantasy of Lamar Jackson actually doing quarterback things is too rich not to indulge in. There is literally zero film of Jackson doing quarterback things. Thus with no evidence, this is purely speculation here. I apologize for my flights of fancy.

New York Giants Select: Sam Darnold, QB, USC
It’s time for Eli to go. His offensive line is horrific in a slow descent of madness that is the Giants’ front office. But change is necessary. With a quarterback whose subscapularis muscles must be inflamed every week.

Cincinnati Bengals Select: Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA
The Chosen Rosen removes the Orange Cuck that is Andy Dalton.

New Orleans Saints Select: Trace McSorley, QB, Penn State
Drew Brees isn’t getting any more clichéd.

Cleveland Browns Select: Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming
Every number says no, but Hue Jackson says yes.

Chicago Bears Select: Austin Allen, QB, Arkansas
Mitch Triscuitby will crunch under pressure allowing some backdoor action with Allen.

New York Jets Select: Mason Rudolph, QB, Oklahoma State
He’s kind of like Bryce Petty, but better. Maybe.

Los Angeles Chargers Select: Brett Rypien, QB, Boise State
NFL bloodlines baby!

Arizona Cardinals Select: Ryan Finley, QB, N.C. State
He’s not Ryan Lindley I promise.

Cleveland Browns Select: Jake Browning, QB, Washington
PAC-12 quarterback with a weak velocity, but can execute the offense. Sound familiar?

Dallas Cowboys Select: Mike White, QB, Western Kentucky
Decent backup West Coast type.

Minnesota Vikings Select: Clayton Thorson, QB, Northwestern
Kyle Sloter is the future, but Thorson can pick up the pieces left by wounded veterans.

Seattle Seahawks Select: Quinton Flowers, QB, South Florida
He’s used to running around with no offensive line help too.

New England Patriots Select: J.T. Barrett, QB, Ohio State
Belichick connection.

Green Bay Packers Select: Kyle Allen, QB Houston
He was good in high school.

Jacksonville Jaguars Select: Kenny Hill, QB, TCU
He’s kind of like Johnny Manziel with less of the other stuff.

Washington Redskins Select: Logan Woodside, QB, Toledo
I haven’t watched his film this year, but that isn’t the point of mocks.

Buffalo Bills Select: Richard Lagow, QB, Indiana
He’s kind of like E.J. Manuel. Tall and big arm. That’s about it.

Philadelphia Eagles Select: Riley Ferguson, QB, Memphis
He’s the guy Carson Wentz’ girlfriend told him not to worry about.

Tennessee Titans Select: Chase Litton, QB, Marshall
I literally just googled “2018 NFL draft quarterbacks” and his name popped up.

Los Angeles Rams Select: Jarett Stidham, QB, Auburn
Nice camp arm.

Detroit Lions Select: Wilson Speight, QB, Michigan
Lion fans will be familiar with him.

Pittsburgh Steelers Select: Nick Fitzgerald, QB, Mississippi State
Lots of physical tools with little development.

Baltimore Ravens Select: Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
Cool name.

Denver Broncos Select: Anu Soloman, QB, Arizona
The spread version of Trevor Siemian.

Atlanta Falcons Select: Keller Chryst, QB, Stanford
Running out of wiggle room here.

Miami Dolphins Select: Will Grier, QB, West Virginia
It could work out.

Carolina Panthers Select: Malik Zaire, QB, Notre Dame
He was good once.

Buffalo Bills Select: No one
Because they already passed on the greatest quarterback god ever created. The holiest of holies: Patrick Mahomes.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Select: Danny Etling, QB, LSU
I’m running out of options here.

Oakland Raiders Select: Luke Del Rio, QB, Florida
Son of Jack Del Rio.
