Relative Athletic Score Tables

I’ve been working on RAS for several years now. The ultimate goal is to provide a place where you can look up measurements for NFL players and draft prospects and compare them to their peers in a number of different ways. One such method is using the scores I’ve developed. Up until this point, I’ve […]

OC RAS Table

Below is a table containing the entire RAS database for offensive centers, ordered from the highest RAS of 10.00, former Baltimore Ravens 2006 2nd round pick Chris Chester, through the very lowest. Center hasn’t been shown to have the same correlation to NFL success and athletic measurements as the other offensive line positions, suggesting that […]

OG RAS Table

It’s crazy to think that Brandon Broooks and Evan Mathis played on the same offensive line. Hall of famer Steve Hutchinson posted an elite score in his day, and joins a long list of elite athletes who have found success in the NFL. Guard was a position I didn’t expect to have much of a […]

OT RAS Table

It probably won’t surprise anyone that highly touted players like Taylor Lewan, Joe Staley, and Robert Gallery once held the prestigious 10.00 RAS (Lewan still holds it), but would you have guessed former 7th rounder Lydon Murtha rates as high? Hall of famer Jonathan Ogden of course rates highly, as does future hall of famers […]

WR RAS Table

We now have all RAS and draft year RAS for 31 years of receivers. It is ordered from the highest RAS of 10.00, recently retired Detroit Lion and future hall of famer Calvin Johnson, through the very lowest. Future hall of famer Andre Johnson isn’t far behind, and that’s just scratching the surface since there’s […]

TE RAS Table

No position has seen more evolution in the NFL over the past three decades than tight end, and it’s very clear when looking at the draft year RAS of players like Tony Gonzalez. So many players were elite in their day, but wouldn’t stack up against the athletic freaks that come out of college nowadays. […]

RB RAS Table

In the top five for RB RAS going back to 1987 we have four 1,000 yard rushers. Justin Fargas wasn’t able to last very long in the NFL due to injuries, but made his mark with the Raiders while he was there. It sucks that we don’t have hall of famer Emmitt smith, and Barry […]

QB RAS Table

Athleticism with RAS always refers to measurable talent based on the drills presented in the combine and pro days. It doesn’t take into account arm strength, Wonderlic, or any other abstract that can be used to measure a quarterback. As such, it doesn’t have as large of a correlation as it does for other positions. […]

SS RAS Table

Below is a table containing the entire RAS database for strong safeties, ordered from the highest RAS of 10.00, former Carolina Panthers 5th round pick from 2001, Jarrod Cooper, through the very lowest. Year Pos Name School ATRAS RAS 1987 SS Bruce Plummer Mississippi State 6.25 10 1988 SS Anthony Newman Oregon 9.53 10 1989 […]

LB RAS Table

One of the largest position groups in the RAS database, it is even more impressive when you see someone like Luke Kuechly or Von Miller, or Manny Lawson at the top of the RAS ratings all time. They’re being compared not only to the best at the position, but the best at a position known […]
