Draft season is about honing in on the process by gathering the information necessary to make the best decision possible on a few draft prospects. Rookie drafts can be looked at as a shot in the dark by some, but they are absolutely vital to a dynasty owner’s success. A wrong move can set a team back a few years. On the contrary, picking the right guys or making a smart trade can quickly turn a team around.
We are currently looking at a wide receiver class that could impact the landscape of dynasty just like the 2014 wide receiver class did a few years ago. With that being said, there are going to be multiple receivers at our disposal who could be the catalysts to turning our dynasty teams into championship contenders.
Athletic comparisons are important because they deliver some context to a player’s workout metrics. The comps provide a depiction of how a player might look like when they hit the NFL field. However, it doesn’t provide an exact comp to the players listed, because it doesn’t factor in traits or production.
My database has athletic metrics for wide receivers from the NFL Combine and pro days from the year 2005 to now. The database has over 630 prospects in it, providing a deep sample of talent at the wide receiver position.
