The Athletics Forecast big board
Mon Apr 20, 2020 1:04 pm
  • Last year The Athletic's "forecast" big board was the most accurate out of 61 boards regarding where prospects actually ended up, based on inside information from league personnel about things like medical issues, off-field concerns, interview answers and culture fits with specific teams.

    Those forecasted to be taken later than most people think:
    +10 S Xavier McKinney, Alabama
    +10 OT Josh Jones, Houston
    +19 CB Kristian Fulton, LSU
    +13 S Antoine Winfield, Minnesota
    +47 LB Willie GayJr, Mississippi State
    +38 WR Donovan Peoples-Jones, Michigan
    +46 OT Jack Driscoll, Auburn
    +62 S K'Von Wallace, Clemson
    +50 OG Netane Muti, Fresno State
    +38 TE Brycen Hopkins, Purdue
    +70 EDGE Alex Highsmith, Charlotte
    +44 WR Tyler Johnson, Minnesota
    +73 OG Jonah Jackson, Ohio State

    Those forecasted to be taken earlier than most people think:
    -20 OT Austin Jackson, USC
    -23 OT Ezra Cleveland, Boise State
    -30 TE Albert Okwuegbunam, Missouri
    -38 DL Jason Strowbridge, North Carolina
    -51 LB Jacob Phillips, LSU

    Exactly. The Evaluators really like him in the top of the third, but the Forecast board has him sliding down until the mid 4th.

    Here are the forecasts from last year and where the players actually ended up:
    -70 Kendall Sheffield, Actual -59
    -41 Ryan Finley, Actual -21
    -37 Jarrett Stidham, Actual -3
    -32 Jamel Dean, Actual -26
    -29 Trysten Hill, Actual -60
    -27 LJ Collier, Actual -44
    -25 Parris Campbell, Actual +1
    -25 Tytus Howard, Actual -54
    -24 Daniel Jones, Actual -54
    -15 Johnathan Abram, Actual -20
    -14 Drew Lock, Actual +5
    -9 Rashan Gary, Actual -4
    +13 Noah Fant, Actual +5
    +13 Brian Burns, Actual +13
    +20 Dalton Risner, Actual +16
    +30 Hakeem Butler, Actual +68

    Looks to me like 3 misses (Stidham, Campbell, Lock) and 13 hits for the forecasters last year.
