NFL Market Share Production

Metric Analysis: Brandon Carr was an impressive athlete when he entered the NFL in 2008. And though his impact declined after his first year in Dallas. He has shown to still be a decent asset as a starter. Most players have a steep decline in impact after age 29. So his play from 2014-16 should be norm going forward, if not worse than those lows.

NFL Market Share Production

brandon-williams

Metric Recommendation: Brandon Williams doesn’t have the FBS pedigree, and his age is suspect. However, he has elite to above average athletic traits in explosiveness/speed. His best athletic comp is Dan Williams, another successful nose tackle. But I would be cautious with Williams due to his inconsistent NFL production and age. Thus, I would recommend a salary of 3,727,500 to 6,390,000 per season adjusting for the salary cap increase.

That puts Williams in average to above average starting nose tackle salary range. All production marks can be hit at that price point based on his athletic ability and previous NFL production. Some hedges should be added due to his age and below average flexibility. But with nose tackles being rare to find in college football with the proliferation of spread offenses. Williams would be someone I’d put an emphasis on acquiring if I had a 3-4 front.

NFL Market Share Production

Metric Analysis: Danny Woodhead gets knocked on his size a lot, but he was a very impressive athlete coming out of Chadron State. His data problems were more related to arm length and his age. However, at this point in his career he’s probably peaked. He had his highest usage season in 2015 and he’s in his 30s now. He can still give you change of pace like qualities, but he will likely not be the same Danny Woodhead he once was in 2010-13.

NFL Market Share Production

tony-jefferson

Metric Recommendation: Tony Jefferson has all the qualities necessary for an above average NFL safety. The area he succeeds the most from college and the NFL is solo tackling, which is an underrated aspect of the position. But his lack of elite playmaking ability in interceptions and pass deflections may cause some teams to turn their nose up on him. However, in the NFL where finding a safety that can prevent big plays Jefferson is a major asset. Thus, I would recommend an NFL salary of 4,526,250 to 7,668,000 adjusting for the NFL salary cap increase.

Baltimore Ravens Free Agency Overview

This was a decent free agency period for the Ravens. They managed to re-sign their above average nose tackle in Brandon Williams. Get a fresh influx of safety help with Tony Jefferson who is just now entering his prime. With quality veterans in Brandon Carr and Danny Woodhead who come with some risk at their age, but it was a good attempt to fill depth on the roster. I will be excited to see how they finish this period out.
