Statistical Analysis and Scouting Reports for Defensive Back NFL Draft Prospects.

Chidobe Awuzie/Cowboys Draft Commentary…

 

Twitter @CFBMetrics

As I am doing research for dynasty rookie drafts, I come across some articles and notes from local reporters on lesser-covered or off the beaten track rookies at training camps…or just nice observation notes on all the young players. I’m going to share some of them with you on players you might be interested in...

 

The more study I do of the 2017 offseason, the more I am starting realize that the Cowboys had a really crafty draft…which makes a few in a row…which means Dallas is on the brink of becoming the best team in football, and have done so via smart personnel moves. Soon, everyone will know the name Will McClay.

Here are two light, interesting reads on underrated Dallas rookie Chidobe Awuzie and the man quietly responsible for the Dallas turnaround — the only football person that makes me stop in my tracks and reassess/re-look when we differ on scouting, Will McClay.

The 2017 Fantasy Football Draft Guide package has arrived! Now available: 2017 FFM Draft Guide Package

Our seventh annual edition over at Fantasy Football Metrics.com. It’s a fantasy draft guide like none other – updated nearly every day from our June launch to opening kickoff. 600+ players projected with thousands of words of commentary for the 2017 season based on our tape scouting, computer/analytics/Moneyball models for the 2017 season and the impact of the schedule. We update all the projections and data daily up to kickoff of the regular season.

We nailed it out of the gates on Jordan Howard, Tyrell Williams, Rishard Matthews and so many more in 2016 – pulling sleepers out of thin air and avoiding many landmines. And of course, David Johnson as our ‘top guy’ for 2016…just like we had him rated higher than anyone else in the dynasty rookie draft in 2015, a major sleeper in our 2015 fantasy football draft guide and ranked #1 among all fantasy options going into 2016…we never wavered. You need to know about these guys before everyone else…not debating how high to rank them once they are stars – anyone can do that. We find talent and value year-round, ahead of the masses.

We have several new ‘things’included for 2017. It’s our most ambitious draft guide package ever and we’re still adding more data views to it every week throughout the preseason to opening kickoff.
