2013 NFL Draft Features at P-F-R

Posted by Neil on March 26, 2013

Just a note that we've added the annual Draft Preview to the site, which shows the 2013 draft order along with the typical quality of players you can get at each slot (and the best players ever taken in each slot by Approximate Value).

New for 2013, we also assembled a list of 2013 draft prospects at each position, cross-linked with their stats pages (when available) at S-R/College Football.

These features go hand in hand with our Draft Section, which has results of all past drafts, and the customizable draft finder tool.

Passing, Rushing, and Receiving Stats Back to 1977

Posted by Justin Kubatko on March 5, 2013

Today I'm happy to announce a major addition to College Football at Sports-Reference.com. We now have passing, rushing, and receiving stats for all FBS (nee Division I-A) schools dating back to the 1977 season, and for schools from prominent conferences (ACC, Big 8/Big 7, Big Ten, Pac-12/Pac-10/Pac-8/AAWU/PCC, SEC, and SWC) we have passing, rushing, and receiving stats dating back to the 1956 season.

For more information about our data coverage, please see this summary. And if you have any questions or comments regarding these changes, please let us know.

Approximate Value and Hall of Fame Standards

Posted by Neil on February 28, 2013

PFR user Oscar asked today about whether we had a football version of Baseball-Reference's Hall of Fame standards using Weighted Career Approximate Value. To that end, I analyzed weighted career AV data on retired players who started their careers in 1950 or later. Here was a breakdown of all Hall of Famers in that group:

Maximum 159
90th percentile 130
75th percentile 114
Average 101
Median 101
25th percentile 88
10th percentile 73
Minimum (non-kickers) 31
Minimum 0

Using a regression formula, we can also say what your odds of making the Hall are at any given Weighted Career AV threshold:

Wgtd Career AV p(HoF)
160 100%
140 98%
130 94%
125 91%
120 85%
115 78%
110 69%
105 57%
100 45%
95 33%
90 23%
85 16%
80 10%
75 7%
70 4%
60 2%
50 1%
45 0%

Here's a neat tool that lets you find every player in NFL history (since 1950) to wear a certain number... It can even allow you search by team.

Brief Downtime (for new db server) Monday, Feb 18, 2:30 PM ET

Posted by admin on February 18, 2013

We are spinning up a new database server (transitioning from unitas => rice (Jerry)) and will have what I expect to be a minute or so of downtime as we make the switch. I expect to flip the switch at 2:30 pm.

Future Schedules up for 2013 (and beyond)

Posted by Mike on February 5, 2013

Using the NFL's scheduling formula combined with the final records of everyone from 2012, it's possible to determine who will be playing who in 2013 -- and more. Follow the "Schedules" links from your team's franchise page and we'll list at least fourteen games of the season for the next four years, and all 16 for the upcoming season (including last year's won-loss and total opponent winning percentage). Unfortunately, the "when" for these games will have to wait until the NFL officially releases its schedule in April, but hopefully this can tide you over till then.
