*Explosive Lower Body Strength Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s vertical, broad jump and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

*Speed Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s 40-yard dash and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

*Flexibility Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s short shuttle, 3-Cone and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

Metric Analysis: 8.25 million a year is above average guard money, which for a player like Duvernay-Tardiff is fine. He checks all the boxes at the position. You can look at PFF or whoever to give a film analysis. But on the whole, there is nothing holding him back on paper from being a very good starter consistently in the future. A good signing overall for the Chiefs.
