Depending on position, these drills tend to be more of a threshold that players must meet rather than a clear measurement of exceptional ability. Often that means it’s more about not scoring poorly than it is about scoring very well. For some, however, these drills represent the best gauge of whether a player can explode out of their stance, attack the ball in the air, or gain a quick leverage advantage on their opponents.His vertical leap of 35 inches is considered above average for a TE, having a relative score of 7.53.

Depending on position, many believe either or both of these drills are the most important of all measurements as it shows a player’s ability to move in space as well as burst and bend.

    1. Auclair ended up with a 7.26 RAS. I will be posting all of the cards eventually, but since it’s a manual process and there are 8,000 players in this database, it can take some time as you’d imagine.
