    For a few years I have kicked around the idea of putting together a measurement/credential system that should be implemented across the board for all folks who claim to be "talent experts" given the explosion in this industry. The impact that these folks have on who has a chance to advance to the next level is immense and they are truly an unregulated industry. A grass roots campaign can be successful with the viral nature of social media. A great place to start would be to review the last 6 years of data for both college and pro football "experts" such as the Mayock, McShay, Kiper and Luginbill on ESPN and the sites such as Rivals, 247Sports and ESPN Recruiting and how their Top 20 at each position fared at the next level with measurements at each position group. Here is what I have so far as to my thoughts on what should be measured:

    OFFENSE:

    QB
    Starts
    Wins
    Completions
    TD's
    Rushing Yds
    Passing Yds
    INT's

    RB
    Starts
    Carries
    Yards
    TD's
    Receptions
    Yards
    Penalties
    Fumbles

    WR/TE
    Starts
    Receptions
    Yards
    TD's
    Penalties

    OL
    Starts
    Wins by team
    Penalties
    Team yards for both Passing and Rushing
    Total TD's for team

    DEFENSE:

    DB'S
    Starts
    INT's
    Tackles
    Sackes
    Fumbles recovered
    Tackle for Loss
    Forced fumbles
    Penalties

    LB's
    Starts
    Tackles
    INT's
    Sacks
    Tackle for Loss
    Forced Fumbles
    Fumbles recovered
    Penalties

    DLine
    Starts
    Tackles
    Tackles for loss
    Sacks
    Penalties
    Forced fumbles
    Fumbles recovered

    I would appreciate any help and suggestions! Notice 40 times, vertical jump or "upside" are part of any measurement!!!!

    A measurement system applied to high school players would be a welcome thing. That way white high school players would get a fairer shake and anti-white discrimination could be exposed.

    I like the idea a lot - putting actual credibility into the equation is a big thing that has never been done - all of these experts have the ultimate cop out of it just being a projection (they are worse than weathermen). Riddlewire came up with his own QB metric analysis for college players a few years back. I remember it being very well thought out and a great answer to the QBR that BSPN pulled out of their asses. I can't recall if Riddlewire's system was a direct reaction to the QBR system but it was much better. I will try to scour the CFB threads for it and post the link here.

    Even yesterday NFL.com caste analyst Daniel Jeremiah was out their once again spewing idiotic/borderline homosexual praise on a black DE from Miami - saying he looked the part and was the prettiest defensive lineman invited to the shrine game - seriously WTF is that in terms of actual analysis and how a player performs on the field.
