*MSA Rating: The average score of a prospect’s market share production, strength of schedule and age percentile scores

*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: A lot is made about Joe Mixon off the field, but his data on paper isn’t exactly clean either. He hit all the thresholds except for 3-Cone by .01 to project as a potential Pro Bowl caliber running back. But he has never put up the market share production of a back who is destined to be a generational force. Best case scenario is a Ricky Watters like career arc. He could be that type of outlier, but there is a high chance he will rub a lot of folks off the wrong way like Watters did.
