JBird and anyone who wants draft history info ...

Post by Vijay Ramanuj » Sun, 11 Jan 2004 01:31:28


Man, you knew it was going to happen. I send JBird the links, then I
think "Hey, this is probably easy to do" and I put together the
spreadsheet.

Basically, I've got the drafts from 1982-2002 and I've got a database
of career statistics, so I've concatenated them (or am in the process
of doing so). You can sort it by draft position or by a particular
statistic, however you want.

It's an Excel spreadsheet. What's the best way of sharing this with
the newsgroup? I can either post the results, in text format, or I can
put the spreadsheet on my website.

Why not do both? Excel can export an HTML page, granted not the best
one in the world, but still. Also provide a link to the Excel sheet
for them what has Excel and wishes to manipulate the data.

Excel actually exports pretty decent HTML pages, if you don't have a
lot of smarmy*** text formatting and whatknot in there.

Either way works for me. One request: do you have height and weight of
players? A second wishful request: 40 times?

They put on college football's most distinctive uniforms, thinking about
those before them. The walk-ons, the All-Americans, the Legends who made
sure to uphold the tradition... They are the black shoes, white helmets and
plain uniforms of one of America's most successful programs. They are
heroes, they are winners....they are Penn State football.

I'd prefer the spreadsheet at your site as then I can sort more easily.
Thanks.

I don't have either, I'm sorry to say. That would be really
interesting, though, to see if there's a correlation between, say , 40
time and being picked too high or too low or whatever.

Yep. And height with respect to linebackers taken too late.

Obviously there would be a correlation for certain positions. One can
improve his speed and quickness but real speed and quickness can't be
taught.
