2005 NFL Draft Class

While there were plenty of elite athletes in this class worthy of attention, like future hall of famer DeMarcus Ware and the likes of Shawne Merriman, Derrick Johnson, and Alex Smith, this class also boasts some of the biggest busts who are, in retrospect, considered workout warriors. This includes Jaguars receiver Matt Jones and Rams tackle Alex Barron, both of whom flamed out quickly and spectacularly.

  1. This score holds no weight and is the dumbest creation I’ve ever seen (draft wise). You’re taking drfat information and putting it into a score? You cannot score athleticism based on draft performances. Atheltcism is more then a 40-yard dash, bench press, and jumping. It doesn’t show lateral movement, receiving ability, ability to change direction, quickness, etc.

    1. Hi, Kenny,

      If you looked at the scores based on round, you’d see white quickly that your statement that it beats no weight draft wise is a bit quick to judgement. If the numbers meant nothing, there would be no correlation between them and where players are drafted, but instead it’s a pretty overwhelming volume of data to the contrary.

      While you’re absolutely correct that athleticism is more than the ten measurements compiled into these scores, it’s important to separate the abstract from the measurable. “Receiving ability” for instance is a subjective measure that will vary depending on who you asked, as will a number of other concepts we don’t currently measure. Many of the specific traits you mentioned ARE seen in the measurements currently taken. Change of direction and quickness are both seen in the shuttle and cone, for instance. There will always be something that isn’t covered, though, which is why you can never take an athletic score, even a composite one like RAS, as the sole gospel and ignore the players on tape.
