Introducing the PFR Draft Machine App for Mobile Devices

Posted by Mike Lynch on April 21, 2015

We're excited to announce that we have a released an NFL Draft app on the Google Play store  and Apple's App Store: the PFR Draft Machine. For users familiar with our Play Index Draft Finder tool, this brand new app will bring those same unique functions (and more) to your mobile devices.

Download this app now to find out who's picking where in 2015, the best pick at that position in the history of the draft, and the average performance of picks at that position. This app also allows users to make customized queries across every NFL draft pick in history, with filters such as year, team, college, position, round, etc. The only limits to your queries are your own imagination. This is the only app to bring the power of the Pro Football Reference Play Index to your mobile device.

And best of all, we're offering this app for FREE. So please download it and let us know what you think. We're eager to hear your feedback and apply it to any future mobile apps.

Draft Stashes List and Stats

Posted by David Corby on December 17, 2014

If you've poked around our Draft section recently, you might have a noticed a new link for 'Draft Rights'. We've compiled a list of all held draft rights for players that are currently playing abroad.

The easiest way to view this is to mouse over the 'draft' item in the navigation bar and look for the link:

The selections are sorted by the retaining team, then by the year of selection. We have current year stats for all players that participate in one of the Liga ACB (Spain), LNB Pro A (France), Lega Serie A (Italy), or Greek Basket League, as well as the Euroleague or Eurocup. In these cases, the Current Team column will link to those team's pages and you can view the player's season stats there.

Finally, if that's not enough, on our team pages we've included the current year stats for all players whose draft rights are retained by that team. In some cases, the player will play in a league for which we don't have stats or might not currently be under contract with a team, but most players whose rights are currently held are active and playing in Europe...
