1/12/16 thru 1/16/16: Projected "Opening day." There will be between 5-8 QB prospect reports loaded on "opening day".
JANUARY: This is the month we concentrate on our QB research and reporting. All throughout the month we will add reports every day or two. We will do full scale scouting reports on 25+ QBs for the 2015 NFL Draft (ultimately, we will statistically grade approx. 50+ QB prospects and rank them). .
FEBRUARY: Once the NFL Combine takes place, we can start our statistical-based evaluations of all the other non-QB positions. We start with the biggest prospect names, and highest rated players nationally—and keep adding reports all throughout the month.
MARCH: We continue to add full scouting reports on all positions, and update prior reports with the latest Pro Day workout data. We also begin producing a statistical ranking board of the top 20-30-40-50+ players at each position (see home page for position classifications).
APRIL: We keep adding more scouting reports, and continue to update our ranking boards.
MAY: Once the 2017 NFL Draft is complete (April 30) we begin statistically grading the draft from an NFL standpoint, and then we start ranking players for Dynasty/Fantasy Football scouting purposes. We will also add a few more additional prospect reports post-draft--including a look at some of the bigger name prospects for 2017.
JUNE-AUGUST: Continued analysis of Dynasty/Fantasy Football ranking boards based on updated info from training camps and preseason games.
SEPTEMBER-DECEMBER: CFM is mostly idle with all the reports filed for 2017 (and 2012-2015) available for your review any time as the NFL season unfolds.
12-31-2017: The subscription access ends for 2017.
January 2017: The process begins all over again!
College Football Metrics is a prospect research and player evaluation group in the model of a "Moneyball" approach. We have developed several algorithms/computer formulas to analyze, model, and grade college prospects looking ahead for their NFL usefulness, and star-potential.
For the past few years, we have been analyzing college and pro players for projected performance for private clients, for their Fantasy Football scouting. During the 2011 NFL Draft season we began to make our college prospect theories public, and due to the resounding request for more prospect research we are launching College Football Metrics to be our home for all of our research reports, rankings, and all things NFL Draft.
We look at college performance based on strength of opponent and individual physical measureables, and comparing that to our database of over a decade of college prospects at the same position, and their subsequent NFL performances.
We are not beholden to a mainstream approach; we are an independent research group trying to project player performance in a way you won't see anywhere else; and often defies all "conventional wisdom" (and is often proven right).
