2011 NFL Draft Clas

Cam Newton.PNG

The reigning king of RAS for quarterbacks, Cam Newton set some unrealistic expectations for any big, athletic QB coming into the league who might try to compare themselves to him. He was followed by Von Miller, whose 9.95 Relative Athletic Score nearly topped the over 1,000 linebackers in the database.

Round Above 5.00 Below 5.00 Percent above
2011 1 27 4 87%
2011 2 26 13 67%
2011 3 23 8 74%
2011 4 25 4 86%
2011 5 21 11 66%
2011 6 23 11 68%
2011 7 34 14 71%

The 2011 draft class was pretty awesome from an athletic standpoint with only one player getting selected in the first 20 picks with a RAS below 5.00 and only 4 in the first round. The draft class saw pro bowlers like Von Miller, A.J. Green, and Patrick Peterson drafted early, each with elite RAS. Of the four players drafted in the first who had a RAS below 5.00, Phil Taylor and Danny Watkins are out of the NFL. Mike Pouncey has been a good starter for the Dolphins while Mark Ingram has been a good pick for the Saints, if not an elite one.
