NFL Production Scores

tyrod

Metric Recommendation: Tyrod’s biggest metric red flag is his high school production. However, the FBS production that spans a much longer time period is very positive. And his NFL production has been above average for the last two seasons. There is a very low chance that Tyrod will ever be someone considered a top 5 player at the quarterback position due to his college production. But despite the low NFL sample, Tyrod should be considered a potentially average to above average quarterback moving forward.

I’d recommend a starting NFL salary of 20,235,000 to 22,365,000 adjusting to the recent salary cap increases. This estimate puts his floor and ceiling into perspective. But it should be designed with some hedges for the risk from his high school red flag and dip in production from 2016.
